Exactly.

I'm pretty sure they don't know much more then us. Apple generally don't give away any information to retailers. If the prices are confirmed different during the event tomorrow, they will change them.

I just find it amusing that the pics are from the Best Buy in San Angelo, TX. I remember when they didn't even have a Best Buy in San Angelo

OMG also the new MB/MBPs are going to weigh .01 LBs, take that MB Air! /sarcasm

Hopefully they will produce a color that looks like vomit that way thieves will be deterred from stealing it.

RED = $1,099.99 - 13" MacBook base model

I don't see this as evidence for prices staying the same.

Quite on the contrary, I take these prices as indication that they're not the price tags on the actual products. I think they just used current prices as a placeholder then. If any, even just one model would not fit into Apple's current pricing structure (even, let's say, the high-end model being 2,899$) this would appear much more plausible to me.

I mean... there are 6 notebook models list, right? Chances are that Apple will have tinkered with prices on at least one or two of them.

I will actually be suprised if BB has them for sell tomorrow. I can see Apple store with them, but more than likely BB a day or 2 behind with updated price sheets and what not.

Can I throw up now?
Those colors would be horrible, well any colors other than silver (incase of the aluminum design), white, and black.
Especially if it was aluminum.
A green aluminum MacBook... no thank you.
And those price points seem exactly the same, that would mean that about 80% of our rumors and predictions where wrong.
