    I would definitely go for the white. But honestly, I'm not getting my hopes up on Apple making the MBA in any color but aluminum. :(

    This is just hypothetical, not that I think it will actually happen, especially with the news we've received over the past couple of days about black

    Aluminum is a material, not a color (erm, I guess aluminum has a specific color, in this case). Apple could do the MBA in any color if the aluminum is anodized (which allows Apple to use dyes in the manufacturing process).

    I'd like black or white, I think. Brushed aluminum would be awesome, also!

    I'd go for a black matte one; I have the blackbook right now and love the aesthetic of the laptop.

    That'd be pretty interesting. Serious question though, do people use their laptops outside that often? I guess if you had your computer next to a window or computed in very well lit rooms? It wouldn't hurt I guess... but may look strange or be very fragile.

    Id prefer a solar panel that could be connected to the MBA as opposed to it being the on the lid

    Seems like black is the clear front runner, no wonder they were experimenting with it

    It's interesting how, for a pretty long time, white or beige was the main color for computers. Then there was a move to black around 2000. Apple comes out and makes a move to Aluminum and White, something no other company really has done across the girth of their products.

    So how do you differentiate? You make your high end a black one. For some reason not many companies go with a black matte scheme; I think it looks amazing.

    Ultraviolet or Infrared - I always struggle deciding between those two finishes.

    I have, and it's only nice when it's new. Once it looks the tiniest bit dirty, or greasy from fingerprints, it's not nice.


    And why would I choose any of the PLASTIC versions of the MBA when I can stick with aluminium? :confused:
