When is the all black Macbook Pro coming it. They did it for the old Macbooks so I can see them eventually releasing one. If it had an all black unibody and white or silver keys it would be soooo bad boy. Any Photoshop pros able to knock up an image of just such a machine for us all to salivate over?

It would probably still have black keys, for the backlight. See the iPod Nano: Silver with black controls, and black with black controls.

Speaking of the black iPod Nano, we can all look at that thing and imagine. It would probably look like the old matte-skin version of the nano (last year's model). You are right, it would be pretty badass looking.

I doubt it......

1. the MacBook is polycarbonate, while the MBP is aluminum

2. Apparently Apple spent lots of time researching the "perfect" color for their machines for the best viewing experience. For iMac, MacBook Pro, Cinema Displays....then they make their computers the same color, Mac Pro, Mac Mini....etc

Since now the only two colors of machines are silver and white, I doubt black will be put back into motion....especially for the MBP

Saying all that, I am still a little stumped why they put a black boarder around the 24 ACD, iMac and MBP.....when I remember Apple was very proud of the color silver they chose....hmmmmmm :confused:

I would have wanted a BlackBook if they didn't paint the OUTSIDE of the shell -.-' gnarbs

However considering the processes used to color the aluminum iPods I'd love to see an array of MacBook Pro colors! Sadly, the pro line has never had color options =\

Listen, they'd never bring out a black brushed aluminium Macbook Pro because trading standards don't like monopolies, and one of those would take Apple OFF THE CHAIN.

End.

I don't think they will bring out the black macbook again. Usually PCs are black in color so mac don't want others to mix into the PC crowd.

^^^Have you looked at laptops over the last 5 years? :confused:

Besides, the black MacBook proved to be a laptop that really stood out visually.

Aluminum has nothing to do with it. There is still a coating, and they can make it what ever color they want.

Black is a much better colour for laptops. I dislike the Al. Thinkpad matte black all the way (; Unfortunately I lack the skills or the time to mod a MBP to a nicer colour scheme. Plus black is less flashy, which is a good thing if you actually plan to use your laptop in public
