I was always kind of wondering this. Felt very prototype-y.
Heh, you really don't like ANYTHING about the new MacBooks, do you?
Personally, I like it. It's the classic look, back again.
Totally agree. I actually thought Apple originally removed it from the rMBPs for design and simplicity reasons.Never like it to be honest, just seems unnecessary and goes against the simplicity of the design; Macbook PowerBook is not too bad the whole "Pro" thing is kind of tacky and just as sales thing.
Sales and Marketing Vs Design I should imagine. Marketing would want the logo/model plastered everywhere while Design would want the industrial design to shine.
I hate in your face logos and model numbers. It’s one of the things that sets Apple apart in the phone market. While you’re using the phone you’re not subjected to static space consuming logos, which is the opposite experience to the likes of Samsung. I therefore applauded the decision back in 2012 to remove the in your face wording in the MBP.
