Why even bother asking this question? Do you want a black Macbook Pro and are unwilling to do it yourself? If so, then yes, it's worth $6k.
I was really hoping we were going to avoid all discussions of this?
Given most users on this forum, no, because when the next one comes out most users here think that the stealth will suddenly become inoperable.
...I'm sorta shocked that no one else had mentioned it, given that it made its circles around the web a week ago.
With that custom spec... its worth $4250 from Apple's website using custom configuration. So the paint job alone is worth $1750
It's also a limited model....haha
Nope... not even close
Woof, Woof - Dawg
i have a stealth mb
No, it's not, but it does look nice.
I was really hoping that the new 15" uMBP would come a matte screen option and the same black anodized finish as the iPod Classic.
Keep hoping. I will say, if I was going to get a Colorware computer (say I had a massive gift card there) I would prbly spring for the Stealth, only because the all black looks much better then the gray touchpad.
I would buy it if it were the same price as the regular MBPs from Apple, but for 6k you must be nuts.
Just buy a MBP and find a local company that will powder coat it flat black.
I would be the guy to fork out the 6k, only to scratch it in 2 or 3 days..........
I would say no.. Especially since they covered up the apple logo. I would rather get a black macbook and a macbook pro and save the money haha
No but considering there are only going to be 10 of these made its a matter of supply and demand, in which they feel its worth it since there will only be 10 lucky/rich owners.
No way. 6K!!!! WOW. If you want the outside to look black get the speck seethru satin in Black!!!
The specs sound nice and a matte display also sounds nice.
Not worth $6k, but I'd love to have one, especially if it had a 1680x1050 display
I wouldn't say the paint job is worth that, its just what they are charging. However if its worth it to you then do it. Your the only one that can answer this question.
Then I have a Stealth MacBook, and I only paid $50 more!!!
There is also the custom matte screen. How much do you think that costs?
Well, it's a $50 upgrade from Apple, so...
Remember that Colorware does most of these modifications through the non-Stealth versions. Also people's Colorwaredified Apple's on this forum have been not the greatest of things.
I would not buy it even if I had $6,000 to spend. I wouldn't buy it at $4,000 either, I'd just go and buy a non-unibody MacBook Pro for significantly cheaper and get just a little bit less performance.
Seriously? and would you be embarrassed to take it to starbucks because then no one could see your logo? I think its comments like that, that people give Mac users a hard time. I like the look, just don't know if its worth the extra cash.
iThink it's more just a preference thing. Once again we are talking about paying over a thousand dollars for paint. Also I don't think people give Apple users a hard time, they might give you a hard time for pondering whether it would in fact be worth the extra grand, as opposed to flat out siding with logic.
No...it's because there are people who would buy this product (who coincidently you would think would be upset by the covering of the logo) who fuel the perception that all Mac owners crave style over substance.
