    I think their reasoning is for better keyboard contrast. I never had a problem with that when I owned the black, unapologetic-plastic MacBook.

    Sure, why not. They've gone back to black with the iPhone 7, so I think a black MacBook is possible. Some were already hoping for a jet black version for the new MacBook Pro.
    I personally would love a black MacBook.

    Judging from the current trend, there'll be sooner a pink version than black.

    P.S.: The black MacBook was a unique, wonderful piece.

    Loved the black plastic Macbook. Used to own one. Since we have a "black" iPhone 7, I think we will see a black Macbook as well, replacing the space grey.

    They already made one, the rose gold Macbook.

    MacBooks follow the iDevice color trend. I can't see them doing Jet Black, as scratches and scruffs would be insane on such a large surface like a MacBook. If they do offer a new dark dolor, I'd imagine going "Black" like the iPhone 7. The new MBP continue with Space Grey, so that's probably what they will keep with for a while.

    I don't see why they even bothered with the pink color. They had tons of other choices to go with yet rose gold was the winner. They couldn't do maybe a product red one, a dark blue, or yes a matte black.

    I agree. Worst color choice on both, iPhone and MacBook.

    The black MacBook was a disaster for me. They had to replace mine *twice* within the first six months due to the sloppy heat sync goop that caused the thing to shutdown at random. The case also flaked off and chipped all across the front. The metal MacBooks have had much better longevity thanks to better build quality. Without the glowing logo on the back, a black MacBook would look like just about any other laptop out there.

    What has it got to do with black? There are a lot of silver, gray or gold laptops that aren't MacBooks as well.

    This is the main reason. Sunlight.

    I really like the space grey but they need to go all the way black as an option too. Would look bad-ass.

    Hopefully 3rd gen.

    I disagree, I LOVE rose gold on them.

    Colour is fashion for Apple, maybe they may bring out a white aluminium MacBook as well as a black.
