I like the black finish. However, if they are going to incorporate it, they might as well make the whole case like that black gloss, then do away with the black MacBook and replace it with a 13 inch ultraportable MB pro with the same finish.

I sincerely hope that that is not what new MBPs will look like. If anything, that is probably closer to what the new MacBooks will look like, as far as having some black around the screen and what not. Actually, I'm pretty sure that the exact same mock-up has been around for a year, long before its glossy case would have been considered a "companion to the iPhone":

Besides, the glossy-ish surface might work for iPods, but I'm not so sure about laptops because of finger print issues.

can anyone say "I love fingerprints"? if that really was the MBP redesign, then they better come up with a way to make it anti-fingerprint-magnet.

I thought the iMAC's design was tacky already..but this? I dont know..I like the glossy black look, but I dont like it mixed with Aluminum.

As someone said earlier, thats a magnet for fingerprints and dust.

Nobody here seems to understand that the picture on the site is a mockup that the rumour found to be similar to the new macbook pro, it isn't an actual picture of it. I'm hoping for a new macbook pro with magnetic latch and perfect LED backlights, none of these yellow tinted screens i've been hearing about.

look at all the icons in the dock. They are all horizontally squished. Someone took a screenshot of a Mac and pasted it on a Windows laptop. There are a lot of Windows laptops that are already doing the high gloss black thing.

This thing is UGLY!! There's no way apple has such bad taste as to create this pile.

Anyhow this is obviously fake and somebody even mentioned that the date was from feb, so further proof
