    @alphadog808 obviously there's no need for colors since it wouldn't add anything functional to it, but hell, 8 years of aluminum color are making it become a bit boring, so at least space grey (or any darker color) would be welcome.

    I suppose if the sales of the MacBooks have been good in terms of the color choices, then perhaps. At least space gray could be an option.

    That's the main reason I'm asking. Gold would probably be tacky as hell but space gray would look badass

    I don't see Apple doing this with the Pros. In the past they have offered a few color choices on the MacBooks such as black and white but never on the Pros.

    I honestly think they will. I am assuming it will be the same color palette new Macbooks...I am just hoping they don't get rid of the translucent-light up Apple.

    I do not believe that a space gray laptop would be tacky or anything. I realize you didn't say it would, but I conclude your reply to suggest that pro machines should remain silver. Maybe because it is more "professional". If that's the case, I do disagree. Space gray is quite nice. I still prefer silver, but the space gray is slick on the phones and the MacBooks.

    Gold, that's is subjective. I dislike gold. I don't even wear gold jewelry.

    Any arguments that the MacBook Pro is a "pro" device, so it doesn't need any colors is negated by the iPad Pro.

    The colors heightened the new design of the rMB, and the rMBP should be better in every way.

    So I'd say absolutely we'll have color options. We should be able to have matching mobile devices... iPhone, iPad, MacBook.

    I don't think they will, I certainly couldn't care less if they do or they don't as long as it doesn't affect the price.

    What about an anodized metallic black?

    Good?

    Awful?

    Worth paying extra for?

    I agree that pink/gold are not the best colours for a Pro gamma, they don't look serious on a device made for working. And despite having gold option on iPad Pro, the Rose Gold has already been avoided (as it should have happend with gold). But I find Space Gray to be not just gorgerous, but modern looking and sober. Of course the colour of this kind of devices is the last thing to worry about, but the silver/aluminum one is getting a bit overused and boring. And no, they shouldn't make it as an extra option. So in conclusion: Apple, give us the traditional silver plus Space Gray options.
