    I wonder if this would somehow increase the price of their products as many CF products are more expensive then that'd suck, but the job posting certainly leads to the idea of new products or new designs.

    i agree.

    i think the next 5 years is going to be very exciting for Apple. they certainly are innovators.

    I'd love to see a carbon fiber MBP, it's a fantastic material. June/July is going to be exciting...

    My 3 year old Sony Vaio is entirely Carbon fiber in the body... hardly innovating.

    seriously! nothing has ever been made from carbon fibre! and certainly not computers.

    and don't hold your breath for a carbon computer from apple in the near future. - i imagine they're just getting someone on board to start investigating ideas.

    Carbon fibre skeleton instead of magnesium (or whatever it is they use) would be interesting. Would keep it lighter. I think brushed metal looks much better than carbon fibre as a shell =\
