    I don't know if this has been discussed before, but I found it interesting. I work at Best Buy, and it was dead tonight. I looked up in our computer system the base Macbook Pro system. ($1999). It says it is deleted from our system. This usually means a new product is on the way. Don't know if this means anything, but just thought I would let you guys know.

    I'd say that Best Buy knows squat. Apple doesn't release things like that to the Geek Squad before hints start appearing on their own website.

    And by hints, I mean nothing.

    I wish Apple would release a new MacBook Pro soon so all the whiners would shut the hell up...

    As I said, I am not completely sure to what this means, but it usually means we are not getting anymore shipments of that model. And when I tried to order it, it said it was backordered.

    Of course, then we have the MacBook whiners next in line, and then the iMac whiners... oh! and look! The Mac Pro whiners after that! Oh, and I suppose by that time people will be whining about their outdated Penryn MacBook Pros...

    Let them be frigtards. They'll just complain more when it doesn't have a 9800M GT and a 500GB 2.5" drive standard.

    I checked my area's MBP stocks, and looks like the closest store (out of like 7) that has any base models is like 30-40 miles away. Only the closest one has the 2.4 ghz model, and only 2 of the 7 stores have the 17" model. Plus it's being advertised heavily at Best Buy and Fry's here.. I don't even remember the last time I saw MBPs in any ads.

    Are you kidding? That's when the REAL whining starts!

    "What? No BluRay in the base model??"
    "Why oh WHY did they switch to that horrid Macbook/MBA keyboard!"
    "STILL no 12" model?"

    You cannot deny this is interesting, thanks for the information!

    BestBuy seem like pretty big players, and it's not like this is a Jan 08 newbie posting!

    This could mean something because I have seen best buy put them on sale for about $200 dollars off and that only happens when something new is coming out.

    today when i was working i checked out the other macbook pro models. All say they are deleted. The only thing is when i went to view the additional details of the item, it gives me a code. It says Perf: and then a letter after that. If it said Perf: X, Perf: Y, or Perf: Z it means try to sell the remaining product, and we are not getting any more in. The closer to Z, the closer it is for the product to be completely gone. Under the Macbook Pro it said Perf: C. I am not completely sure what this means. Maybe someone else who works at Best Buy does?

    If you work at best Buy can you ask your supervisor what Perf: C means, Can't you?

    It means Best Buy is dropping the MacBook line. Again.

    They would never ever do this. Mac sales are growing like crazy... (unfortunately) and I see more newbies walking into best buy getting sucked over to the mac section because they like the way macs look.

    That's so true. This latest group of newbies are so damn annoying, it's really killing this great site. They always post the same thing "When are new iMac's coming out", "OMFG when is the MacBook Pro being released". Plus, they always manage to post a thread about these topics when not even three topics down is the same f*cking question. Really, shut the hell up, get over yourself; it's a computer, not God. When Apple is ready to release it, they'll do it.

    This is another great reason to buy a refurb. That way you're not paying full price for something that will be outdated in 6 months.
