    The aesthetic was starting to wear thin. I'm glad they got rid of it.

    Yeah, I really don't mind it being gone considering they used it for years . And having a different looking lid is good for a change. I really wouldn't want to own multiple MacBooks that looked the same with that glowing Apple logo.

    Just wait until the Macbooks get so thin that the whole screen will shine through the other side anyway ;)

    It's very interesting that they have confirmed Apple will re-introduce the Apple light up logo.

    Personally, I don't care that much. I'd prefer the logo to stay unlit because I think its silly and also fairly annoying when using the laptop in a dark environment.

    Amen. So glad mine doesn't have that retard light behind the screen. Good to see some other sensible folks around here.

    It's actually better for your eyes to have the background illuminated when working in a dark environment - which an illuminated Apple logo does. For this reason I really like the feature. Much less eye strain over long periods of use in a dark room in comparison with the newer MacBook Pro.

    Without the glowing logo, it looks like just another run of the mill 'fill in the blank' metal cased laptop. Glad to see they are fixing their mistake.

    Dude.....night shift is the same as on an iPhone. It does squat over long periods of time for your eyes. Your eyes need ambient light in order to not strain your eyesight. I recommend doing some research on that one :p

    Well, to make a joke about it, if you work after six p.m., you're doing something wrong. And for the other supposedly SHORT activities, it's more than enough :))

    I want one so thin you can roll it up and stick it in a cardboard tube in your backpack like it's one of those plastic cutting mats for prepping stir fry materials. Put the logo on the cardboard tube, keep the Apple Mat Book simple. :D

    You should be sleeping at night. Do some research on that too.
