FUD Zilla claims Intel's 32nm Sandy Bridge should be about 22 percent smaller than the current generation:
If you compare the next generation Sandy Bridge and current generation Arrandale / Clarksfield CPUs, it looks like that the new CPU will get some 22 percent smaller.
When we say smaller we mean the physical package itself as the new chip should live to see 22 percent reduction in x, y and z BGA package.
This is quite a big deal, as it will enable even thinner notebooks and it will be easier to make smaller notebook motherboards and make things even smaller and lighter.

This is over a year away. By then we'll have the IPhone 6 :) Oh and by waiting a year you STILL won't get USB 3 built into the chipset, because Intel has no clue how to make USB 3 work on their chipsets.
