    Imagine a balck mbp with a glossy, scratch resistant finish on the inside and a black anodized aluminum case. That would be so sexy...especially in a 13.3 inch form...I can't wait until WWDC. Post your mockups and other wwdc predictions/ desires here.

    I would definately love to see a black macbook pro with anodized aluminum case. Not so sure if I'd want a glossy case since I think it makes it look less professional. Other than that, it would be damn sexy. Especially with the backlit keyboard.

    I'd love one! Been saying that for a while tho, but I just got laughed at...

    Honestly I would hate for it to be like the Black MB... I dont like the way that looks, So if that is the "anodized aluminum" I'd be sad...

    A black MBP would certainly be a fully qualified backup Hibachi ;)

    I definitely prefer silver.

    I agree, a darker silver color would be nice. I don't want proper black though.

    Oh you want what's called a 'Pearl' paint. That would look really trick, but it's too hard to mass produce. Basically a Pearl paintjob is when you have a base colour-say black, and then I *think* they put down a few layers of clearcoat, and then your accent colour say red. So this would look like black straight on, but from an angle it would be like a dark cherry red.

    I won a contest awhile a back for a free custom airbrushed paintjob on my Norco Shore in '01. The frame is/was aluminium so the downside was that they couldn't 'bake' the paint on because aluminium loses strength, where as if it was a steel frame they could bake the paint on. Since they couldn't the paintjob chipped sooo easily:(

    So I wonder how Colorware paints their Macbook Pro laptops, then again a laptop isn't being ridden down a race course:rolleyes:

    Haha well no acctually I didn't mean Camelion Paint job stuff though that would be AMAZING!! Like that special addition 2003ish cobra... oh man... :Drooling:

    I just mean there is a paint job automakers do. Its a dark dark silver. The IS300 and has the best one out their that i've seen. Its just a super super super dark Grey. When the sun is shinning straight on it it looks just like a pretty dark grey, but the minute the sun/light source is not it looks black.

    Thats all I meant. Pretty sure its not the paint job you were talking about because the ford focus has had it before I think, and so did the lexus...

    I completely agree. Silver looks amazing, and black would look cheap and almost like a pc...

    I don't think the black looks so cheap other than it shares appearance with its cheaper brehtren, the MacBook. Leaving the trackpad and keyboard silver looks very tasteful and functional. I think the black is cool because it understates the parts of the computer that you don't interact with, and helps the material on the screen stand out.

    I'm like the way the MBP looks how it is...I'm not really a fan of the black macs anyways just because I think it makes them just look like Dells or other computers. Apple is known for it's all white computers that are just so sexy.
