    Hey gang, I saw this on Facebook tonight in an ad. When you clicked the link it said win a MacBook Air, but this picture, if real, sure looks like it might be a black aluminum MacBook. Good luck dissecting, like I know you will.
    Check it out here.

    You, sir or ma'am, need to format the picture so we can see it. Take the root URL and click the "Insert Image" button in the posting field...and it takes care of everything for you.


    I also doubt this is real or new. :[

    i see that scam thing 3 times a day on facebook, its been around for months. and that doesnt look like aluminum at all. More like super shiny plastic. It is obviously some photoshopped PC computer with an apple logo stuck on it.

    sorry but nothin special.

    Um... nope. It's not thin enough to be an Air. It's a glossy black MacBook... somehow. Someone probably just changed the color.

    I opened twenty tabs using the link in the first post. Same image every time.

    IT'S. A. MACBOOK. Were you to actually look at a picture of a MacBook Air, you would see that it is thin. The MacBook hinge is that hinge. The MacBook speaker/heat dissipation grills are those grills. It's not an Air.

    some people are looking at the companies home page and not the link in the original post, the homepage has a macbook air, the other pic is a black macbook that is shiny for some reason, just a bad ad thats all..

    There's no leak. Apple is making sure no one sees the new MacBook before they release it. :(
