Thinking of getting the new 16-inch MacBook Pro in silver since this is the more "back to basics" MBP than the 2016-2019 ones and feel like silver is more appropriate colour for that, but does anyone already got one in that?

The internet is seriously lacking photos of these in silver. Lucky new owners, please post some for us!

They both look really nice. I'm a space gray fan when it comes to notebooks. I prefer the white-type model when it comes to every other device.

If I buy I may get silver even though I think space grey is prettier, every lit bit of dirt shows up on it and is annoying ?

Silver looks really nice. Dare I say, nicer than space grey...
Agree...

I was a Space Grey only person for a while be it MacBooks, iPhones, iPads ect. The past few years I've come to appreciate and like Silver more. It's a classic look and since I am OCD, it has the benefit of hiding print smudges ect better than the Space Grey does....

Netherlands, the
Nice! The contrast with black/silver is lovely as always. Looking forward to my bto silver one. It would also match a pro xdr display stand in the future better. :apple:

They still make them in the outdated silver color?

LOL... Just kidding. Both options look fantastic.

I've always preferred SG iOS devices for the black bezels, now they pretty much all come with black glass anyway, I'm starting to appreciate silver more again (liked the aesthetic of my iPad 3 with the black glass and silver back). I think on balance I've always preferred silver when it comes to MacBooks, the higher contrast between keys and case just looks more 'right' to me.

I saw a silver one in the shop today and it looked good. I couldn’t take a photo as it had just come in and the staff were all over it ?

and does the 2019 Space grey
discoloration like the 2016 models?
