    I suspect the new macbooks will flaunt the curves that the air has. I must admit I'm not a fan of curves, I feel they are too early 2000-esq and thus uncool. For me angles are back in. But hey that's just my opinion what do you guys and dolls reckon? :)

    Whatever my Apple will design, will be cool.

    Apple's design dept has a way of making anything look cool.

    I'm actually a big fan of the curves on the MBA. I would like to see both the Macbook and MBP take after the MBA in some aspects.

    I prefer the angles seen on the current MacBook/MacBook Pro, as well as the glorious PowerBook G4 Titanium.

    just make it (as) cleanable, and (as) reusable/recyclable as practically able. also dark colors are harder to work with in lowlight settings. and get warm in hot sun. otoh, overly bright surfaces will reflect glare in bright light (sun), but user can wear sunglasses. so light colors are better.

    and s@#!W the 1butT{hockey}puck maus ;)

    I don't like the Macbook Air's design much. I love the powerbook/MBP look, though.

    I don't mind the angles, but I do think Apple's recent designs are better than their previous gen stuff. The metal iMacs look stunning and can't wait to get my hands on one of them (saving for a maxed 24"). Which also includes iPod nanos (not Classics, prefer 5G over them) and touche/iPhone.
