    I buy my computers based on the specs, not the color.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a "black" one return. If they can do an iPhone or iWatch in "space gray", they could do it on a laptop. I don't think they will, though, because laptops aren't exactly fashion devices like a phone.

    A gold one might, might look okay if it had a white keyboard and hinge in contrast. Gold still looks hideously gaudy to me, though, no matter what device I've seen it on. It looked bad on the iPhone, now it looks even worse on the iWatch.

    I think the current Macbook Air looks perfect and super gorgeous.
    I'm not interested in those iPhone/iPad color ranges on a Macbook at all.

    A gold MBA would be incredibly embarrassing to have.

    On one hand choices is good. On the other hand, today u can spot a Mac Book a mile away like the classic Mercedes. Today's Mercedes, u have to get close to see the badge to know.

    I can't imagine a Gold Macbook Air looking good. Space Grey I think would. I would rather see a white, aluminum MBA vs Gold.

    My missus said the same thing - she'd quite like a white one.

    I personally think that everything gold is ugly.....jewellery included. A laptop should never be gold. That is just disgusting....

    I mean the Iphone 5s looks ok in gold but the 6 Plus in gold which i saw in the store is possibly the ugliest thing i've ever seen. I don't know why but seeing that totally made me hate the 6 Plus. Not that I actually even like iphones... (I digress) lol

    Sure a bright gold would look garish, but I could see a very subtle gold/sepia tinted MBA being a nice option. Even a subtle/mild rose.

    It would only appeal to certain Indian hotel CEOs.
