Have you ridden the newest version of the Madone? I haven't, but everyone I know who has ridden both the older model and the new one, likes the new one better.
As to the component level dropping, that is occurring across all bikes & all lines. The dollar exchange rate is driving up the cost of component sets.
You might get a good price on an '08 soon, as the '09's are about to start arriving at shops. Two of my LBS's just started closeout sales on '08 models.
