    What are the chances of Apple releasing a silver/aluminum macbook?

    Zilch...they want to differentiate between their consumer line and their pro line.

    I would have to say not high. They struggle to keep the MBs cool as they are and aluminium wouldn't help the situation.

    Actually, it would. Aluminum is a great conductor, so it does a terrific job of moving the heat away from the internals (and into your lap, as we've seen with the MBPs).

    Yeah, good point.

    I was referring more to the heat in lap problem. Should've been clearer.:eek:

    I would expect that there is a better chance of a 12" MacBook Pro (which is still very unlikely) than a silver macbook. It's like asking for a white Mac Pro. There is reasoning behind the colors.
