    No problems just pleased with my new cMBP!! Enjoying my base spec 15" cMBP. It is buttery smooth and its the perfect design. Johnny Ives is one smart man with great taste. I laugh inside when I think back on all the crappy and ugly windows pcs and laptops I had.

    What do you like about the MBP?

    And who is Ives?

    (Edit: This was supposed to be a joke but it didn't work too well)

    What does that have to do with this thread, which is about the MacBook Pro? He's still over all industrial design, even though he wasn't the lead designer for the Mac Pro.

    I think that was a jab, note his surname is NOT Ives.

    That is obviously likely to change now.

    Yes.. because one man is responsible for a design in a giant corporation like Apple. Heck, I can't even be responsible for designing a package in a 10-men environment.

    Oh wow cMBP has been confusing me for a long long time!!!

    I thought at one point customised? But nope, makes sense as classic I guess!

    Do you know how many people work for the Apple industrial and engineering teams? It's not just Ive.

    Do you know for sure he hasn't designed the Mac Pro, or you're just assuming that from the wiki?

    Because Wikipedia says: "He is the lead designer of many of Apple's products, including the MacBook Pro, iMac...". It doesn't say it's limited to those products.

    Otherwise that would mean he also didn't design the MacBook, iPod nano, iPod shuffle, Thunderbolt display, Mac mini, Xserve, iBook, PowerBook, PowerMac / Cube, all the accessories, etc. which I would find strange given how everything looks consistent.

    It stands for Classic MacBook Pro or the non-retina version.
    Although I believe this is wrong since Classic MBP is the non-unibody model.

    Oops. Correction to first post. Typed Ives instead of Ive. Oh well. He's one heck of a designer. Cant wait to see what he does with iOS too.

    ----------

    Gosh even positive threads devolve. Ok. Let me clarify for you. Thank you Johnny Ive and all the other designers.

    Not so fast.

    I always thought the cMBP was a little FAT. rMBP factor perfect.

    Aluminum casing can look dull when worn, after losing that whachumacallit coating?


    One more thing: Johnny Ives thinks Windows 8 is cool. Arrrrrhhhhhhh! Beware what u wish for. The NEW, Jobs-less Johnny Ives!

    Nothing against the retina. Of course that is awesome but it isn't in everyone's budget either. For my needs the base 15 is plenty great.

    I genuinely didn't know because I too thought people decided to make themselves feel better by calling their no -unibody "classic."
    That's what I thought. I think people just assign silly names.

    Why the need to start a new pointless thread OP?
