    Those kinda photos - dark with lid half open - looked better without a glossy screen.

    Thats why all apples marketing images for the unibody are well lit. The 2008 macbook pro had all black backgrounds and websites if you recall.

    Ya, they did :(

    It saddens me that Apple often chooses looks over functionality.

    Looks nice, but I'd rather see something more "alive" :p

    Thank you everyone,

    Sascha, what do you mean smaller icons? Do you mean on the first picture?...:confused:

    and Alhaod, what would you suggest I do to make it more "alive"? :)

    did you edit these photos yet? please dont say yes.....
    considering you took the photos on a cannon A530 they're pretty good, but they need some photoshop touching up, for example removing your carpet from a few :p

    What's the fascination here? It's just another notebook. It's like how many shots you can take of a penny; these notebooks are commonplace, so not sure what makes this so grand. :confused:

    They aren't edited yet :)

    I'm gonna take some better ones tonight though.

    edit: belvdr, its all about the actual photography and the angles that make it more fascinating. Do you know how many shots have been taken of the Eiffel Tower? Many....yet so many of them are very interesting because the angle that they were taken, or the way they were edited. Thats just my answer though, feel free to disagree. :)

    They look great. But the macro on your camera looks a bit off. What are you using?

    Well I was trying to take them with my Point and shoot Canon A530. Its the best Point and shoot I've ever used plus I have CHDK installed. (http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK) I just don't feel like using my DSLR. :)

    Oh, sorry for my above comment in that case... I just assumed you were shooting a dslr... didn't even think to check the exif... that sort of noise is acceptable for a P&S

    They'd come out better if you shortened your exposure a bit, there's a setting to do it on your Canon i think.

    If anything, a LONGER exposeure on a tripod would have been better. HE said he was shooting at 800ISO on a point and shoot camera. If he would have exposed 3 stops brighter, he could have dropped his ISO to something more manageable, like 1-200ISO..

    his screen is already almost white and you can see the table which im guessing isnt the desired effect, you'd just see more if you increased the exposure, perhaps this is why Apple takes photos of its machines against white backdrops. (although i have a feeling they use CGI for most promo shots)
