No $800 MacBook? We got yo $800 new MacBook right here!

Various sites around the interwebs were talking up the $800 MacBook before Tuesday’s event – with the economic downturn, it seemed like a good idea.  That $800 laptop never happened – or did it?  Amazon today is offering up a brand spanking new MacBook with the same specs as the $999 laptop (sans Superdrive) that Apple is offering up for $869 (after instant rebate).

We’re not sure how long this will last so if you are in the mood for a low end $800(ish) new Macbook, give that image on the right some clickage (9to5mac gets link cred) ASAP.

Who loves you? 

That’s right, we do.
