Looks pretty much like what everyone has been saying (including the options for black and white models). I thought they'd bump the entry-level price to at least $1099, so if it starts at $999, that will be nice.

Interesting... and appears I was wrong about the base model coming with a Core Solo, like the Mini. A Core Duo for $999 is a deal.

Another interesting thing... I took a screenshot of it and cropped the display the best I could in Office Picture Manager with shakey hands on the Dell touchpad. Looks like 242 x 153 pixels, which is closest to 16:10 of the typical LCD aspect ratios. So I'd guess 1280 x 800, despite the rumors.

There is an update on Engadget that says "Update: Ah oui, comments on French site Mac4Ever confirm what most of you have already concluded, which is that this is no screencap but another Photoshop hoax."
