    I was wondering if anyone has come across any images or videos of the new MacBook Pro in the Silver colour? And maybe a comparison between that and the Space Grey model? I'm looking at ordering one of these new machines but can't decide which colour to go for, and my local Apple Store only had the Space Grey models on display.

    Thanks.

    Check out the Silver/Space Grey MacBooks, pretty much going to be the same colours.

    If you're in no rush to order just wait till you can go into a store and pick one up.

    I personally like the silver although I have only seen space gray. Both are nice though.

    Yes, I was planning on waiting until the Touch Bar models were put on display anyway. Does anyone know if the Apple logo on the Silver model is white or chrome/silver?

    He shows both colors but the video mainly focus on the Silver.

    Thanks for the replies. Now people are starting to receive their orders, hopefully more videos will appear showing the Silver models. Although most people seem to be opting for the Space Grey so far!

    I had a silver but traded it in for space gray.

    For what reason, if you don't mind me asking?

    The space gray looks better and I beefed up the specs.

    I have the Space Grey 13" with Touch bar. It looks great...one thing, it takes a little while to get use to the darker color around the keys after spending numerous years with silver on my past MacBook Pro's.

    Just something to think about as it is easier to see the keys with the silver. Nothing wrong with space grey...just something I noticed in my first 48 hours with it.

    Silver is the exact same shade of silver that every MacBook Pro for the past decade has looked. If you've seen any silver Mac, you've seen the silver on the new MBP.

    Space Gray is just a slight bit darker and it has a black Apple logo instead of a silver one.

    I could have gone either way. I went to the store with the intent to buy the classic silver but ended up with the Space Gray just to change it up. Since every one of my previous MacBooks have been silver since the first aluminum unibody MacBook came out way, way back, I chose to switch it this time. But I would have been satisfied either way.

    I got two MBPs, one 15 and one 13 in each color...I was convinced I would get the space grey but I like the silver better. It's more blingy (apple logo is shinier) and shinier and shows the keys off a little better. This is all my opinion, but I think the silver is different than the old silver, seems lighter, and the Space grey made the laptop look more dismal to me. Or maybe the right way to look at it is the Space Grey looks sporty and the silver looks classy.
