For most of us, Best Buy represents one of the more convenient places to buy electronics. Their stores usually offer decent variety (varying from place to place) and reasonable prices. They don't make you deal with the pain-in-the-ass that is mailing out rebates, which earns them big points. But they also do crap like highlight “deals” that are actually more expensive than normal.

The Consumerist reports that Best Buy is boosting the price on individual computers for a short period of time and then highlighting them in their ads. They don't say that the product is on sale, but they promote it as a great deal.

Best Buy isn't necessarily doing anything wrong here (if you don't believe gouging the uninformed is wrong) but it is something you should be aware of. Deals at Best Buy may not be quite as good as they appear. Always pre-shop online first.
