    I currently have a black macbook that I bought in late 2007. I love the color so much and I just feel like I never want to buy another macbook and/or macbook pro because the aluminum feels plain.
    Anyone think that black can come back in aluminum or am I reaching too far?

    Hail the black macbook!

    If it comes back it will be as a compliment to the white MacBook (i.e. all plastic) and not the aluminum one.

    I'd really love to see a black anodized macbook/mbp/mba but I don't think it's going to happen. I don't know if :apple: realizes how popular all black is.

    I'm wondering about that. Was it popular? I'm a guy and it makes me look cool instead of girly with a white macbook.

    Maybe I should change the question up a bit.

    Is possible that black would ever come back?

    I love my BlackBook as well. If a black anodized MBP was released I purchase it in a heartbeat. Don't know if it will ever happen, but I guess it is possible.

    I had a black MacBook, chose black because it looked more professional in a business environment. Don't know that black would be all the much better than aluminum.

    Try sitting around an executive conference table among all the Lenovo's with a white macbook. :D

    I'd go for black any day. Not because of the PC snobs I work with... I just hate cleaning this damned thing.

    If you would have asked this question a week ago, I would have said, "Not happening, you're crazy." But recent events have transpired me to rethink this. The fact that (a) there are rumors of the unibody line to be rebranded all as MacBook Pros, (b) rumors that the classic MacBook may drop in price, and (c) given today's update of better specs... maybe, just maybe, Apple will be keeping the classic MacBook around a while.

    If they decide to drop the prices on the MacBook, I think they may reintroduce the black model. It may or may not happen at WWDC -- if it doesn't I wouldn't rule the possibility totally out of the picture, but if it didn't happen by this October, then it won't ever happen.

    LMAO :D I like the black MacBook also, for $50 I brought the Black Satin ispeck case, fits really good. Look just like the old black one.

    My WhiteBook is an attention getter usually... mostly from hecklers saying "Why do you have a mac?" to which I reply "Cause I work on PCs all day"

    i would love to see the black macbook take over at the 999.99 price... the white once looks so outdated.

    I was thinking exactly the same thing. I don't know how, but I constantly find little bits of crap all over my Macbook, I'm constantly wiping it off.

    That's the most annoying question ever T.T
