    If you click this link it should show store availability for your area, YMMV.

    All sold out where I'm at. Probably just another one at this price scheme. Best Buy isn't one of my fave's.

    This really was a killer amazing deal. I guess keep your eye out for it to hit again, though. I'm sure they're just clearing out all their old macbooks

    Any hope of a price match from another store/site at all?

    They seem sold out in both the Washington DC area and the Los Angeles area.

    Sucks. They must not have had many in stock.

    My local BestBuy still has some black books. I'm almost tempted to grab one.

    I noticed the other day they were listed at $1099, now they are $1199.

    None in the Chicago area. Even though I shouldn't I'd probably have picked one up.

    Seems they are available at just about every store in my area (Temecula, CA). Surprising really.. they NEVER have any sale item in stock.. its like a scheme just to get people in the door... advertise a great deal when you have low stock. The other thing they do is play around with the prices... I was recently on the market for a MBP and they have a open box unit for 1699... but then they had a sidewalk sale of all open box items.. I noticed the price on the unit... 1799 + 10% off... how ironic.

    Funny, I went to my local Best Buy and they didn't show them on line but had them in stock when you went into the store. They weren't even offering the new ones.

    Many times Best Buy will have them in the back, but not on display. They will go and check to see if they have any in stock.

    So let me get this straight...

    It is possible that Best Buy brick and mortar stores have $799 macbooks. Yes or no?
