    That's the glass bezel. Apple has stated that the antennas are integrated into the body.

    yeah, I see what you are talking about but I don't think that is plastic.

    the bezel is made of glass i know that..but theres a black piece of plastic at the bottom bezel...I was simply wondering why is that there...

    Personally, I feel like it would look much better without it...like the Pros, all glass

    Neither the retina or old MBP is all glass. They all have that.

    I think your right...but the rMBP seems much smaller and less eye-catching..

    But the old MBP didn't have one at all

    For real, if you have a retina screen and your eyes are gonna focus on that bottom bezel then I don't know what to tell you. You will probably just never be happy.
