Best Buy's Laptop Discovery Tool is listing a set of "New SKU" laptops from Apple Computer, according to Engadget.

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.

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.

$2,499? What about the $2,199 price point? That one sounds like it\'s the base 17\" MBP. Maybe the $2500 is a souped-up, SSD-enabled 17\" monster with Light Peak and 20 hours of battery life while streaming 1080p content?
