Lately we have been posting a lot of new MacBook Pro release rumors, however there has been no solid evidence supporting the refresh, today we have had a breakthrough as Best Buy has added new MacBook Pro SKUs to their laptop configurator, this news was recently reported by Engadget.

You can check out the Best Buy laptop configurator for yourself here, if you sort by brand A-Z and then click on “Premium” you will see new Apple models without photos, two of which are called “New SKU H” whilst another is called “New SKU I”.

The two “New SKU H” variants are priced at $1,799.99 and $2,199.99, whilst the “New SKU I” model is priced at $2,499.99, therefore it is thought that the latter is the 17-inch models, whilst the “H” models are 15-inch models, below we have embedded an image showing you one of these new SKUs, as you can see no specs are listed, however it does state that online and in-store availability is “coming soon”.

You can see our roundup of all of the MacBook Pro 2011 rumors here, Best Buy’s new SKU listings are the most solid evidence we have seen so far, hopefully we will find out more soon.

What specs do you expect from a $2,499.99 MacBook Pro?
