I plan to wait until the next revision. If the buyer's guide advice I've seen is right, the workstation line is overdue for an update. I would not be surprised to see it announced at WWDC but I haven't tracked it in the past to know how often they've used it to announce hardware updates.
I plan to use it to operate a specialized piece of machinery that only has Windows drivers, at least, if it will work under Parallels and/or whatever Leopard has in store for virtualization, I think it might be worthwhile.
