    How likely do you guys think it is that the new MBPs will come in the "Jet Black" and "Black" that are new to the iPhone 7/7 Plus?

    Jet Black, definitely not, due to the scratching. It is also a more expensive, time consuming process, and the surface area is much greater than an iPhone.

    Black stands a higher chance; it's the new space grey after all, which the rMB comes in. In fact, I will be surprised if they don't come in silver/black/rose gold.

    There is a long thread on this from a week or two ago.

    I could see them releasing a Space Gray MacBook Pro. Little chance of Black or Jet Black. Reason for this is simple - the iPhone team is separated from the Mac team. Mac team will have gone off last year's iPhone colors, like they did for the new MacBooks.

    Forget the colour, I would just settle for a meaningful update to the 15"

    The jet black is only getting 60-70% yields in an iPhone case so I'd imagine a MacBook would be far to much of a nightmare for them. May get Matt black or gold but I honestly couldn't care less.

    Best black notebook I have seen recently is Samsung`s Spin 9, looks awesome even the 360 hinge is black, with the aluminium unibody sides being highly polished, equally a fingerprint magnet, nor is the quality lacking. I would opt for for one however the SATA 3 SDD is a limiting factor, nor am a 100% certain if it has pen support. All said if it meets your need it`s black done right.
