    Hi All

    I have just bought a 2Ghz MacBook Pro and I am really happy with it but I do have one question regarding the top menubar.

    If you look at the menubar it is not the same colour. The bottom half is a slight shade darker. Is this correct? Looking at some screenshots posted on here other macs look the same. I have got a 20" iMac at home and I have not noticed this before.

    Cheers

    Ben

    The menubar is slightly different in different versions of OS X. This is what it looks like in Tiger, PPC or Intel. In Panther, it didn't have this shading, but may have been very subtly striped. Funny, I don't remember now. IIRC, in Jaguar, it was striped.

    The menu bar has varied from 10.2 to 10.3 and to 10.4, but not within subcategories. What you are seeing is completely normal. They could have shaded it much better IMO, but it's normal.

    This blog entry has nice screen captures of each version of OS X and what it looked like, so you can see past menubars. :)

    It's just a graphic representation of shiny white plastic.
    IMO it's too busy for a basic operating system GUI element.
    Personally, I wish they would settle on a simpler design for the system GUI.
    OS9 was pretty good.
