    I don't know, but it would be rad if we could get a black/slate MBP like the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini.

    After reading the furore caused by the black anodising being easily scuffed and scratched I think it's safe to say no.

    It'd look nice and be swell to have the option but some people just can't handle their expensive toys showing signs of wear and use.

    I doubt it.

    Apple experimented the idea with a black MacBook Air prototype but weren't satisfied with the result.

    Perhaps it's acceptable for iPhone/iPads since they have highly-reflective chamfers everywhere making them shine and look more "premium". Apple probably thought matte black aluminium would make the computer bland, and there would be no real benefit while having drawbacks like more apparent fingerprints, scratches, etc.
