    The back looks ok. The front keyboard part looks awful.

    everything but the trackpad area looks good. The outside is really nice looking though.

    I usually like these (I've got an iamhuman veneer installed now) but this looks... just terrible.

    Not my style, but I admit the outside looks neat.

    Yeah, also torn on the inside.

    If most people thought that looked nice apple would do it themselves.

    I personally don't mind the outside but the trackpad bit? No thanks.

    It's not the color of the photo that bothers me. The mix of wood grain and metal on the inside just looks bad. Since they can't cover the speakers, there's really no choice, but it just makes it look cheap (IMO). The back isn't so bad, though.

    I like the way it looks on the outside, just not the inside.

    Sorry, but I echo the opinions of others, I'm not liking that look at all.

    I guess I am too much the engineer. I want that nice metal body to do its job as a heat sink. I don't want to insulate it with a plastic skin when in operation. When being transported it will go into a neoprene sleeve.
