eBay store now selling it for $1149 (no tax outside of NYC, free shipping. I took print out to BB and they said they'd match, but they charge tax. Other retailers I heard are now dropping the price. It's only on the base. I suspect Apple's going to drop the price officially, or just watch as retailers do and the stock of the base gets sold to be replaced, probably, by an update. and maybe soon. Anyone paying full price at this point for the base should be wary.
