No more MacRumors for me tonight. Once I saw the picture of the MacBook Pro, that was enough. I want to be surprised. :p

Interesting, I really like it. I dunno what all the icks are about. Apple's new designs seem to be ones that grow on you. I wonder what the regular MacBooks will look like. Could we get a picture of one of those? Pleaase?

No Firewire, no blu-ray.. $4000 glossy toy. Maccrook "Pro" . If the laptop had the word, "Acer" on it nobody in their right mind would pay how much they want for it. Nobody would pay more than $1000 for it. Who would buy a worthless machine with no ports ? Yay for the Apple Nazis.

Wow, I really don't like the way that looks. If I wasn't so happy with my current MBP I would have considered it though, despite the looks, but the lack of a mouse button would definitely be a BIG problem for me.

Mine matches my ACD... I'm plenty good!

No trackpad button? who saw that coming. Not sure why they'd drop that. I hope there will be option for matte display. I'm not a fan of glossy displays. This is the design I thought they'd be going for with the consumer Macbook to mimic the consumer desktop, iMac.

They grow on you because there's little alternative. Black bezel? Another -1 point.

No trackpad button.
High-gloss glossy screen.
Looks like recent HP laptops.

These forums are going to suffer a meltdown if that's what the new MBP looks like.....



However, I do like the overall design. Just take away the super-glossy screen, and that would be a good start.

Where's the power button?

No Mouse button, that's fine, but how do I turn the thing on lol.

Epic EPIC fail if they make glossy standard, I don't know who Apple is talking to and what crowd likes that damned glossy screen. o gosh just keep it an option!!


Everything's locking into place for tomorrow, prices already are known (90% chance those are true).

I like the way it looks... but no mouse button!?!
Huuuuge turn off.

Lets remember...this is Apple we are dealing with. I doubt they are gonna totally get rid of the mouse button and leave it at the functionality of the pad. There is something up their sleeves...;)
