Entries propose March 11th ship date
"Dummy" listings for new MacBook Pros have begun arriving in Best Buy inventory systems, a source says. An example depicted in photos mentions a $1,199 pricetag, currently the cost of a base 13-inch Pro. Perhaps more significant is the alleged in-stock date, quoted as March 11th.
The entry may conflict with a report suggesting that new Pros will debut this month, possibly as soon as February 9th. Computers could be announced in February and ship in March, however; alternately, Best Buy may simply be wrong. As the inventory listings are stand-ins, the retailer may not yet know precise shipping dates.
