Hey, I'm just wondering which boot screen you have? There's a black and white bootscreen. I think it depends on the models. The newest Macbook's got a black boot screen and the older ones got a white boot screen. And if so is it possile to change it?
Some stupid little question, but i'm just curious.

I guess it would not be available to change the boot screen, at least officially.

However, I can tell you that on my Late 2011 MCP 13", it is the one with white background/black Apple logo!

It does look like all the new models have black boot screens, while the older ones, probably up to (and including) 2011 models (Intel HD3000) have the white boot screen.

I had the black one for a while, but once I set it to boot into Mavericks by default I have not seen that screen. I have a retina Macbook Pro.

I hope it's based on whether you have the dark theme or the light one in the GM. That would be cool.

White boot screen - Late 2012 Macbook Pro
So...

(?) Black boot screen for MACs from 2013 and up / OR / MACs in production

Anyone with a white boot screen with 2013+ machine or a black boot screen with older machine to break the trend?
