Best Buy Laptop Discovery Tool Lists New Apple SKUs

Best Buy’s laptop discovery tool is doing a slightly overzealous job this morning by listing a set of “new SKU” laptops from Apple Computer before said company has had a chance to announce them. This seems to corroborate recent rumors of a MacBook Pro refresh coming next week, as do the $1,199, $1,499, $1,799, and $2,199 price points, all of which are presently occupied by current-gen 13- and 15-inch MBP variants. There is an additional $2,499 sticker for a laptop identified only as “New SKU I,” which presumably points to an upgrade to Apple’s 17-incher. Regrettably, there’s nothing more than the pricing for us to go on, but feel free to fill your time until Best Buy populates its listings with speculation about the hot new processing, storage, and interconnect options Apple might have in store for us.

Screenshots were previously leaked of Best Buy’s internal system that listed new MacBook Pros with a March 11th release date and price of $1199 for the 13-inch model.

Since then MacTrust has predicted that the notebooks will feature a better battery, be lighter, have an improved display, and offer a modular drive. MacRumors has confirmed with a source that the MacBook Pros will be released on Thursday, February 24th.
