    Wouldn't that have been more impressive than that razor blade thing they're calling the MacBook Air? :cool:

    Why do you want black aluminum? I love the brushed aluminum of the MacBook Pro, part of the reason I went Pro.

    Actually no, I would have liked it better, but it's not as shocking as a new product line. Coloring the MBP black and giving it a processor bump isn't anywhere near as impressive as having the "worlds thinnest laptop" and an entire new line

    if it was aluminum black would be cool. but i like the pro aluminum just fine. I kinda wish the apple on the top was black though. I really love the new imac, the way the black apple just pops of the aluminum. Plus it would tie them together more. I know apple loves the brand recogintion of the glowing apple's and all in public. but i think it's over now. or maybe they could set it so there was a thin stroke of light around the apple. It would look great.

    or even if they made it a darker shade of grey and had a red backlight keyboard

    Why Black Aluminum???

    Because I want a choice. The black aluminum is much easier to laser etch than the silver aluminum. Actually they are they same difficulty level, but the black shows the laser etching much better. Besides, I like black. Why shouldn't I have the option of black alunimum?
