From reading a similar post, it seems the lower end MacBook's will be colour coded, with no price drop - According to BestBuy's listings! http://gizmodo.com/5062621/supposed-best-buy-listings-for-new-macbooks-show-no-price-drop Seems reasonable that Apple would try and give the lower end MacBooks a USP - Dell did it with their inspirion 1525's, They come in White, Black, Blue, Yellow and Pink I think? I'm not keen on different colours if I'm honest - Would like it in black, but they come only in Green, Purple, Yellow, Blue, Orange and Red - Similar to iPod Nano's? without the Black (Think I'll try and stretch for the Pro!) I'm assuming that the top casing will be annodised metal or coloured plastics, only a hunch. The prices also, stay the same. I'd expect the MacBook Pro's to stay all aluminium, makes them different to their lower end MacBook's.
