    I don't anticipate any price changes
    If so, they would be minimal

    There always will be a White MacBook IMO.
    ALL the schools that use macs (At least here in the US) purchase them for laptops. If Apple were to remove the White MacBook, that would be a problem for the education market.
    Plus, the White MacBook still sells pretty well, at least at my local Apple Store.
    The last time I was in there, for about an hour and a half, 7 people bought white MacBooks, (But, yes, over 20 bought the 13" Pro, and about 3 bought the 15") The iPads were also disappearing as fast as they brought them out, but that's besides the point.

    I am at a college prep and only one kid has a white MacBook, the prices I put would make the 13" Mbp the price of the 13" white mb. I could easily see this happening

    Agreed...

    I think it would be more likely if Apple did this for the 13" Macbooks:

    Macbook i3-2310M $999
    MBP 13" i5-2410M $1199
    MBP 13" i5-2520M $1399

    This is very true, I work at a technology center at a university and we've got about 140 iMacs between 4 rooms and we have around 90 MacBooks, we also just got another 30 MacBooks in, theres no point to the extra money spent on a pro if they are only going to be used very minimally

    Yes, but what your saying is wishful thinking and has no bearing on reality. Apple, is not going to change their pricing structure because you think they should. They work very hard to find the "right" price to sell their stuff. It is not just grabbed out of thin air. Steve and company do not just magically think well this will sell better at this price. They actually conduct real marketing research.

    I doubt we will see a 13" with a i5 in it. If so I don't believe they would sell as many 15s. I know I would buy a 13" if it had a i5 in it. I hope they put a i3 in the 13s at least. They are so underpowered compared the the 15 and 17s.

    The prices will be the same as they are now ... these you listed are too low ... and the WhiteBook stays as the $1000 MacBook.

    I think they'll stay the same (judging by how Apple priced their stuff even since the introductions of the 2004 Powerbooks/iBooks).

    This gen there is hardly any difference in performance between the i3 and i5 (don`t know about SB), plus the 13 would have IGP only.

    There is a substantial difference in this generation. The i5 and the i7 have minimal differences. The i3 is closer to a core 2 duo than it is to the i5 or i7.

    I guess you forgot to add C2D models, and yes an internal CD-RW(can read DVDs).
