    I have decided to get the new MacBook and I find interesting to read about people’s circumstances, reasons and preferences towards a new colour.

    My girlfriend felt the Gold Rose color on the iPhones were too "pink" while the Gold Rose on the MacBook looks super stylish and sleek.

    We will probably ending up with the Gold Rose but need to check in-store as color can be quite different from our displays.

    Rose gold is nice, will be popular choice for girls, but men too

    To right. Colour is all about confidence. Just look at how well us men rock pink shirts!
    I love the rose gold. It doesn't seem however, the same colour as you see on Tiffany rose gold jewellery though.
    I thought that the champagne gold was excellent on the MBK but have been waiting for the rose gold one. Greedy of Apple not to drop the price but that's the image they seem to portray these days. £1300 for the 1.2 is very very expensive.

    It's always been classic silver for me. I don't have to show off my Macbook with 'fancy' colours. Plus: silver also matches with my silver iMac, silver iPhone and SS Apple Watch.

    Thank you for the responses. Very interesting
    I have an iPhone 6s Plus Rose Gold and love the colour but the Space Grey looks very sleek and nice. I am leaning towards Space Grey but I would like to see the Rose Gold in store and if it is very nice, I will buy it
    I am a medical doctor and funny enough my Rose Gold iPhone had raised eyebrows amongst some of my male colleagues but I don't care as the most important thing is that I like the colour

    rose gold for the wife. it should match well with her rose gold iPhone 6S and Apple Watch.

    personally i would go for silver or gold, but i'm holding out on the rMBP announcement in WWDC. i'll make my decision then.

    I will be getting the space grey version once I have convinced myself and everyone around me it is a critical purchase.

    One worry I do have though is the space grey colour is a fairly dark colour. Sitting out in the sunshine will this heat up the Macbook and cause issues?

    Love my space grey rMB! Looks so sleek and modern. Plus it matches all my other Apple devices (to the most space grey can). I've wanted a dark MB, as I've grown bored of how all the silver looks.

    I was considering the gold but it looks brown or dark orange in some light. And I might get tired of it. Neutrals such as silver or grey are the best bet for people unsure.

    I didn't get gold...too flashy for me. I didn't get rose gold...too pink for me. Many of my Apple laptops have been silver. Space Gray is the only option that suited me.

    I picked the gold, unfortunately had to return the machine because of some issues I had with it.

    I worry that the gray might scratch and rub off -- was that a problem at all with the 2015 models?

    Interesting. I have the rose gold iPhone and iPad Pro, but opted for Space Gray on the MacBook. There is too much "colored surface" on the MacBook to pull off rose gold, IMO.

    It wasn't a problem for me.

    My wife has the 2015 in gold and she loves it. I may purchase later this year and it's a toss up between silver (traditional Apple laptop color) and space gray (match my phone & iPad).

    I had a 2015 Space Gray. Sold it. Got the 2016 in silver. It just seems more... "Mac-like"
    (And it hides fingerprints better, I think.)

    I'm a bit of a traditionalist.
    So it's silver all the way, baby.

    Got my Rose Gold - "PINK" macbook today and couldn't be happier. Yeah, I'm a big guy and I love rocking a PINK laptop cuz I like the color pink. At first my friends laughed but then said it matched me.

    Tried to like the Rose Gold. Have a RG 6s to compare, went to Apple Store to see the new rMBs. Gold is still my fav, with a close second for silver. Don't rly care for SG or pink on the MB.

    Space grey for me, i couldn't walk around with the pink one far too feminine for me.
    Was that Tims product contribution to the direction for apple?

    Silver for me, too. Which doesn't mean I don't like the other colours, except Gold. But Rose Gold is a little too flashy and Space Grey a little too masculine. So I went with Silver, which matches my iPhone 6S+ too...
