AppleInsider suggests upgrades to MB are unlikely;

Unlike an upcoming revision to its professional 15-inch MacBook Pros, the next version of Apple's consumer MacBooks is unlikely to benefit from architectural enhancements recently presented as part of Intel Corp.'s "Santa Rosa" notebook platform.

Similarly, the 13-inch notebooks won't reap the benefits of an LED-backlit display until a successive revision later in the year.

They do predict updates to MBP as most people are expecting;

For the time being, Apple will reportedly focus on boosting the grade of its professional MacBook Pro line which, unlike the MacBook, is expected to draw an enhanced set of features from Santa Rosa.

These should include faster front-side bus speeds of 800MHz, and second-generation Core 2 Duo mobile processors that scale up to 2.4GHz.

Every day brings more excitement for an update to the MBP lineup. Anything new like Santa Rosa and LED-backlit displays will hit the MBP lineup first as people who want these features the most (like myself) also want the top of the line laptop and are willing to pay for it.

Once prices on LED backlight technology come down a bit, then it will be more economical to use it in the lower end MBs.
