why doesn't apple bring back the plastic unibody macbook but in 15" form? also make it grey. white and black are so 2007 anyway. grey would be a pleasing neutral color. it can be called "apple grey." since the market for this is a budget oriented "pro" user, the retina screen can go. but make the screen a high-quality IPS screen, which shouldn't put too much of a premium since IPS screens are no longer "new" tech. the resolution can be 900P or optional hi-res of 1050P like the old classic 15" unibodies. or maybe the same high-quality TN panels you guys use to have on the 15" unibodies. i can live with those screens. same specs as the base model 15" retina now but at $1499? it can be fat. like the way the classic 15" unibodies are "fatter" than the 15" rMBP's. that kind of fat is not that fat to me. the speaker grills can be different or omitted altogether since i understand that they are made of plastic and it won't be the same as if it were aluminum. maybe you can slide down the power button slightly to where the speaker grills use to be and make them bigger, so as to fill up that empty space. the left side will be empty but i think it will be fine. also, what makes this macbook pro c really awesome would be to not include an ODD and just leave it blank for the user to be able to put a second 2.5" ssd or hdd. you can then say in your introduction that we made the macbook pro cheaper but more awesome! that is maybe what the "C" stands for. but also it can stand for "classic" or "cool." you can also draw correlation to the iphone 5 c, which this macbook pro c obviously got it's "c" from but also to the customers that it might cater to. you can say on your speech along the lines of "we are bringing back a classic macbook and making it more awesome. we made it bigger and we made it better. i am please to announce to you, the macbook pro c. as you can SEE, it's grey, which we are calling apple grey (not sure what grey it is but it is a really cool grey that took months of r&d to get right). it's only available in this color because it is the best grey in the world! (applause) (beat) so why did we decide to go back to making plastic notebooks? well, to answer this question, we will go to jon ive who is in our advance plastic manufacturing plant that is right here in the U.S. in fact, he is just down the street across from here. can you believe that guys. So without further adieu, please to introduce to you jon ive. (applause) Jon Ive's explains a new plastic manufacturing process that is better than the old plastic unibody in that it is lighter and stronger. he walks though the plants and we can see the actual process of how these plastic molds are made. he then goes into further detail of exactly why the plastic is strong and light and it is basically a plastic that apple has co-opted from the japanese car makers and electronics and improved upon. he talks about advance plastic compounds and processes that enables them to basically have an eco-friendly manufacturing plant that emits like near zero carbon dioxide and pollutants. he then finishes the tour showing human workers and adds that the plant can make this many notebooks an hour and add this many number of jobs. (cuts back to tim took) you guys get the point. i think it would be awesome too, if only they'd actually make it and such a plastic and factory exist.
