    haha

    it looks like the air, just thicker. and with a white keyboard.
    basically it looks like really good photoshop skills. lol

    the main diffs are:
    1. power button location,
    2.trackpad size

    Although it is obviously fake, it probably won't look a million miles different.

    i was thinking that too... but it does match the rumors description,.
    1. it looks thicker then the air
    2. it has a square isight (unlike the MBA)
    3. The trackpad looks bigger then the MBA

    It does not look bad actually but I would prefer an MacBook Air keyboard and a black frame around the display like the aluminium iMac on it. Then it could be real I guess. :D

    Does anyone else think that the case looks thicker then the MBA?
    Plus, the hinge is different on the MBA

    lol it looks like someone has really good photoshop talents... but nah.. looks fake... and if they did the white in aluminum... what would they do w/ black macbook?? would they do a black aluminum?? (which would look simply divine) -- and if they did i would buy it outright.... (it would also increase performance by a tad bit [aluminum absorbs heat like a heatsink])

    It is hard for me to tell from that angle. If I had to predict, I predict it's the same thickness as the MacBook Air.

    after looking at it again, it looks like a picture of a macbook with the shell changed to a different color and with a few adjustments.

    its the baby of the mb and mba

    If the Macbook was the same thickness as the MBA, what would be the real point of a MBA?

    Because the MacBooks have a sunken-in keyboard.

    And I hope people use search and don't start the same threads a zillion times whenever he/she sees an arbitrary mock up!

    I don't think they'd make one out of metal, portability doesn't have weight on it's list. I wish I knew what they were speaking, I can speak Dutch, only German, and godforsaken English! ><!
