    If true, that looks like some even backlighting, as in (perhaps) LED backlit. We shall see. Beautiful if true. :)

    Just judging by the picture you posted:
    That isn't the newest build of Leopard I'm seeing (icons, transparency, dock). And for the rest, it just looks like the border around the screen is painted black. That's not a very ground breaking cosmetic change to the MBP, you would suspect something bigger, right?

    I agree simply changing the colour around the display is not a big enough change for this to be accurate. It could just be the lighting in the room.

    I would expect a hue that matches the lighting on the black bezel. Looks like a shoddy proposal and a shoddy photoshop.

    OH MY GOD. A BLACK BORDER. THIS IS INDUSTRY-CHANGING. :eek:

    On a more serious note: Fake. Also, he's not actually running Leopard. That's Liger with the modified LigerDock application in addition to Unsanity's ClearDock Haxie re-coloring the dock triangles to white.

    Edit: That's not even Liger; it's some program making the menu bar transparent. It's still got Tiger's Apple and Spotlight icons.

    Um, no. The new MBPs will be incased in an, as yet unknown to man, metal. :)

    I agree, I find that so hideous that I would rather buy a used, worse speced, MBP pre-"update" rather than a new, better speced, post-update MBP.

    How about lead?

    Or aluminum foil. That way when you're done using it, the laptop can be conveniently folded into a tinfoil hat :D

    You didn't think otherwise, did you? ;)

    With all this speculation, I am very curious what the new MBP will look like. Granted the guts and the tech are more important, but how will Apple improve the general look of an already great example of simplicity and style?

    Almost looks like a dorm room to me.

    And I can see Steve Jobs sending a mystery machine to a student in a dorm room.

    This was done in paint or photoshop or something, you can tell if you look closely. Halfway down the right side there is an error, the top left edge looks like crap and the bottom just doesnt look right.

    Unless im crazy.

    edit: and the powerbook charger proves this lol

    you know looking at that first picture, the angle of the dock makes it look like an extension of the bottom part of the macbook pro into the screen...very nice 3d effect.

    How great would it be if the next gen macbooks and pros had sensor in them which could tell the angle of the sceen and render the angle of the dock with it so it was the same. I would love that 8) Far too much cost and effort, but i would pay!
