There's been very little info on any rumors for an update. I personally would like to see it updated as it's been long overdue. If it's not i'll just buy the new iMac instead when it gets released.

Apple only knows the answer to those questions so we can only speculate. Best guess for a MBP update is within a month. Best guess for an iMac update is between the WWDC and the release of Leopard.
