    It seems to me that with them launching new versions of all mac models at WWDC, they have an opportunity to do something they've never done before: they could update the casing materials for all mac models in one fell swoop.

    Here's a dark horse prediction for you: Next week we see all macs get the liquid metal treatment... Or even better (and more unlikely), how cool would it be if they did what I said in my post from this time last year:

    I don't expect to see liquid metal anything. I'm also not excited about it because everything we know is hearsay, it has yet to have any large scale application where its benefits are clear to see.

    While it may be cool to see the fruits of apple's purchase of liquid metal, I don't think we'll see it in the case.

    I'm sorry. I must have missed this declaration on the WWDC website. Where was it confirmed that such an announcement(s) was taking place at WWDC?

    I hope they don't change casing material away from aluminium, I think it's great as it is.

    Yeah I did see that - but that was in 2010.

    It's Apple. If they were considering upgrading to Liquid Metal, they would have fielded a better kind of test than just some SIM ejector pins bundled with the iPhone 3GS.
