Hey there, I was browsing on the UK Education store (http://store.apple.com/uk-edu) and I found this interesting picture:

Isn't that a blackbook? As far as I can see it may look slightly thinner then current MacBook?

It's really hard to tell what it is....too bad the have it open so we couldn't see if it has tapered edges....

When I looked at the screen, it looked quite a bit larger than the current version. Also looks a little bit thinner.

The only thing that seems even somewhat different from this picture against the current version of the Black MacBook is the screen, and that is probably just because the image on the screen was done through editing. Otherwise nothing seems different with this picture and the current MacBook.

Hmmm...Okay, I do see a difference in the bezel but it could just be how they applied the image of the girls (I doubt they just take a picture of a macbook) :confused:

Edit: I guess I stole JML42691's comment, sorry :o

Whoa! I see a leak here... look at it, the thick border around the screen is a lot thinner in this picture, and yes, it actually is on Apple's site.

Looks like a quick photoshop of adding the picture of the girls and whoever did it didn't pay a whole lot of attention to sizing up the screen right. Seems exactly the same as the current macbook other than screen size to me. No evidence of anything the wild speculation says the new one might have.

Looks like a 16:9 ratio black MacBook to me I guess.

Looking at the name of the picture, it was added in June.

I'm sure I've seen that before.

It's just a lousy picture of the current MB.

I'd say they are the same, original on the left, with the image posted above scaled down for the mockup on the right.
It looks as though the screenshot on the left was added to the image (notice the strong corners), so it's probably just been scaled too large.

it deffinitly looks like a bigger screen but I think it's just a poor photoshop job of adding the photo.

That's definitely a current blackbook with just a bad photoshop...

Dangit! Yours was faster and better... :mad:

Oh well, I'm going to post it anyway... :o

Personally, I agree with the bad PS theory... :-)

the actual Macbooks look exactly the same instead of the screen. which means its probably a bad Photoshop job. I don't the web designers at Apple would go in and change ONE picture on the site.

I'm pretty sure "medium" would be considered regular, but the only time I really worked around food, which wasn't that long, was in a small corner deli in a corner grocery store where all we had was "small" and "large." I don't think anyone ever asked for regular :p

Anyhow, I also agree with the bad photoshop editing. It may look skinnier, but that's because the other picture of the MB is at an angle where you see part of the keyboard, thinking it's thicker...

No dice, I'm sitting on a blackbook and when I first looked at it and I thought it may have been a new picture but two things stopped me, the first that it's been up there for a while now and the English version of Steve Jobs would not tolerate such a large leak. The other thing was I zoomed in (on my mac) and once zoomed in the two looked similar.

Another vote for just a blackbook

I agree that it looks like a bad photoshop by Apple. The iSight is missing from the "leaked" one as well and I doubt that Apple would remove that now. I imagine we will get to see a new design, if there is one, after the educational promo ends.

You're grasping. This is a current-release MacBook.
