    Hello Everyone

    Well keeping with apple's new trend of making curvy hardware, how does one predict macbook pro's possible redesign?

    Would it be similar to the Macbook Air's design (but 15.4in of course)? Would that look good?

    Currently; however, I like the build quality of AIR over the PRO... maybe because with AIR no way to easily access ram/HD/Battery?

    Just brain storming here, comment if you please :cool:

    ALSO how likely is a design change... the current design practically dates back to the powerbooks!

    I'd say something like a cross between the current MacBook Pro design and the MacBook Air design. Frontwards battery and black MacBook Air-style keyboard too.

    If the new MBP looks like that, then I'll be glad I have one of the current MBPs.

    No, it wouldn't. Don't kill the features of my pro machines with tapering.

    No, the current design does date back to the PowerBooks. It's 6.5 years old. It hasn't been changed.

    No matter how many curves it will have or not, you can be sure of one thing…

    Steve Jobs will stand on stage and say:

    "This is our thinnest Mac ever."

    Not the fastest.
    Not the most stable.
    Not the most feature packed.
    Not the best value for money.


    The thinnest ever.

    And people wonder why SJ is looking so thin.
    Nothing to do with his health. He is just trying to get into those Size 0 jeans.

    I want my new MBP casing to be made of hemp and bamboo.
