    I think you may have found something here. Judging the size of the display behind the VP's head in the conference room and comparing it to the distance from his chair to the back tables this looks too large to be a 12" RMB.

    Any engineers here who can run a quick model based on some spacial assumptions?

    ugh...smh. The most secretive company in the world...then "Hey look! Let's put our super secret prototype on tv in the background before we announce it! Effectively killing excitement and surprise for the new product!"

    Yeah...or it could just be a different laptop considering there's a billion different kinds out there

    Who's laptop is that specifically? Does anybody know? Because there's a metric ***ton of speculation without ANYTHING to base anything off of

    It would be very funny if it was a Dell XPS 13. (It isn't, bottom bezel is wrong.)

    Somewhere else someone posted a "photographic proof" it's a 12" Macbook and on that proof the Macbook was 1/3 the size of this one.

    This is so stupid.

    It looks exactly like the 12'' - put it at an angle, and that's what it looks like.

    It's gigantic. There must be 6 feet of space between him and the table behind him. It might be a 14", might even be a 24".

    No, the screen is way too big to be a 12", plus the bezels are relatively small compared to the screen. It looks like a 14-15" display to be honest.

    I think the camera and the foreground images make it look further than it appears..

    Even more than the size, which I might be able to chalk up to a visual trick due to the depth of field, is that the top corners of the screen don't look anything like those on the space grey rMB sitting right here in front of me. No, I don't think Apple accidentally leaked an un-announced laptop, but I would not be surprised if something like this was carefully orchestrated.

    It does with mine - when you angle it and elevate it like in the picture.

    If you look closely at the second picture you can see that the iPad Pro is about the same 6 feet away and looks very tiny. So that means that the Mystery MacBook must be very large. I thought 14" and then I thought 24" but now I'm thinking 55".

    I just hope it's running Skylake. And is MagSafe.

    Are you serious?

    The cameras are obviously very different - one's zoomed in, while the other is wide..

    By that logic, the people must be like 100' tall.

    I concur.

    Everything's very carefully orchestrated in Appleland.

    This was just to create the illusion...

    it was a prototype for the 12" macbook
    Apple already told us that for their products, they will test few dimensions

    Why limit yourself, James. It's obviously 444". It will be super convenient to carry around.
