Since Apple released the white iPods and Macs, how many companies have followed suit? Now everyone has white consumer electronics (Nintendo, Microsoft - even my HP printer is glossy white). Apple set the glossy white trend, and they're going to be the first company to move away from it.I am really sad to see the white gone. Personally, I like it way more then the aluminum. Plus I think its part of what made apple products more appealing to the public. Seems to me that sales started going up when the clean white look came about...
agreed...I do love the brushed aluminum!Same here to both devices, and similarly, I will miss them. But it's just like the old Bondi Blue CRT iMacs: once everyone from mousemat manufacturers to desklamp designers starting using that original Bondi Blue, Apple moved away from it. Brushed Aluminium is obviously now the material of the moment, and white is now passe. Embrace the new!
well, if you're willing to spend more money, that could come true:I imagine a teal green macbook in the near future.
Apple plans to shed the white plastic on the MacBook and replace it with brushed aluminum.In fact the only Apple product left "white" is the Macbook. I'm glad the white is going away. I just got the new iMac aluminum and love it. What I do actually like are the accessories like the mighty mouse and power adaptors being in white but the computers and iPods, it's time for a change.
