    Doesn't really bother me, black anodized would be nice, but it would show oils much more easily. I just want the new ones to come out so I can get it and finally have the machine I have wanted for years.

    I like the silver better. I have a black Vaio and it shows oils all over the place, plus it's plastic.

    I don't see why it wouldn't.

    The Black Macbook was super popular and a black Macbook Pro line would be more in line with their iPod and iPhone designs. They also need to differentiate the MBP 13'' from the MBA's as much as possible. Not to mention they've been using silver FOREVER.

    The silver Aluminum still rocks ... maybe they should make the the white MacBook black again.

    Apple has been using the type of aluminum found on the current line for only two years.

    I realise that, but they've been doing the whole silver colour for 7 years.

    Black cars look great when they're scratch free and clean.

    When they're not, though..

    And what's wrong with that? Apple makes themselves different by using aluminum in their computers and I don't think that's changing.

    I know most of us jizzed in our pants when we saw this mock up (just assuming :D)
    Well, I thought about this for a sec.
    Black Liquid Metal is purely awesome. but. BUT! what would happen to the keyboard? Is Apple going to use silver Aluminum for the keyboard?

    If Liquidmetal, then yes. If they're sticking with aluminum I think the silver looks fine.
