    I have fond memories of the old black Macbook, and the new Razer (aka MacPro ripoff) looks pretty good.

    A black Pro would also look great next to the iPhone 5.

    Any chance this could happen?

    Haswell is meant for increasing battery life, reducing energy consumption, and emitting less CO2. Green color is more appropriate... :D

    I would like to see it in black and the current aluminum finish. Having more than 2 would just be making too fancy and killing the name.

    Maybe the black MBP is secretly a Razer running hackintosh... :eek:

    As long as it doesn't scratch up the the iPhone 5 I'd love one. I bet it would though. Carbon fiber may be the way to go.

    Apple did an internal carbon fiber test a while back. It was canned. Too many fingerprints.

    Yeah..

    Black or white I don't mind as long as it is as gem like as the eyefone is but it has to be a 17" MacBook Pro that is my only wish.. ^_^ Or a 13" rMacBook Air with really sharp, super thin screen bezel ! I don't want any ports - everything to be blue tooth or inferred. With a price tag of 5000 YEN is fine.

    Insider info!! :D We can hope...
    I remember Apple doing an internal black macbook test but canned it due to finish, but they seem to have gotten better at black finishing e.g iPhone 5

    Don't know. Read it here over a year ago. There was a link to an article from an insider aware of the test.

    It was during the S Jobs days and he was pretty anal about fingerprints.

    A Black MacBook Pro? It was the thought of owning a black MacBook that started making me think of switching to a Mac. Anodized Aluminum should look sleek in a MBP.

    I would love a carbon fibre MBP....

    I'd promise Johnny Ive himself that I'd never touch it without gloves if that would convince them to make one!

    I personally would love to see a Black Retina MacBook Pro. I currently have an Early 2013 Retina and the aluminum finish is great but black would look even better. I honestly think there is a reasonable chance this could happen. All of Apple's higher end products are now moving to the black. Final Cuto Pro X, Logic Pro X, Logo on AirPort Extreme, the new Mac Pro, I mean it could happen where their "Pro" line is all black.

    Definitely, I think a black MBP would look classy. I don't have the $$ to buy a new laptop at this stage so I'd lust for it from afar :p but I think it would be a good seller.
