That would be kind of cool
Been there, done that, looked like a toilet seat.
Yuk, forget it!
I'd rather have aluminum than translucent plastic on my MacBook any day.
While I can't unsee the toilet seat now, I have to say I personally love the rounded, translucent plastic look much more than the aluminium, even though the latter is undoubtedly more luxurious/durable. I'm sure one day the white/translucent style will return, as most styles (be it fashion, architecture etc) repeat themselves at some point.
My vision was more the exact current design but all see through glass
Sapphire lid and bottom case with an aluminium plate in the middle would be interesting.
I can't imagine a way to not make that look cheap/gimmicky vs the current aluminum body.
The aluminum places it above many of the other competitors, and has a feel of higher quality. It also works well as a heat sink.
I certainly don't want to go back to the 80's see through phone disaster.
As an innovation, it could have all the internal components in grayscale
It's been done with an early iBook
Not sure I'd want to got back to plastic for high end Macs though.
Heh, sure...let's make a glass MBP that will shatter into pieces when dropped.
Doesn't appeal to me. My Nintedno 2DS is translucent and you can see all the innards, but it looks too retro to me. It's something that was cool in the 90s I suppose.
I'd rather have nice dark metal, but that's just me.
Technically, isn't that what sapphire is?
No, thank you.
Visible internals looks tacky on gaming PCs and they'll look even worse on MacBooks. Not happening.
I thought of that exact picture when I saw this thread!
I remember back in the day, the old Macs on ebay being sold with see though enclosures - they were prototypes and somehow some folks got their hands on it. I thought it was cool to see all the electronics. Now aways with the shrinking sizes of the chips/circuits I think its less enthralling then seeing a see through Macintosh 128k
It'd just be one big battery to see...
That would be cool, but it would be too fragile. Maybe clear polycarbonate. Like a white polycarbonate MacBook, but clear.
