Microcenter just put up the 2.26ghz macbook pro 13 for a straight up 999 new no rebates. I just got the email and thought I'd pass it on for anyone looking who wasn't waiting for arrandale. It's the same price as a refurbished, but for a new one. http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0314210 They also still have the unibody white mackbook 2.26ghz 13 inch for 799 new also without rebates or anything now. http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0321997 It's only avail in CA, CO, GA, IL, KS, MA, MD, MI, MN, MO, NJ, NY, OH, PA, TX, VA for local pickup. Don't bother flaming/saying to wait for update etc. I'm just passing this info along incase people were looking for one still. And PS new york residents, go to the NJ store, you'll save 5% on sales tax.
