Why would you be surprised? I'm not.

Quite a few people actually.

I'm pretty sure I've seen the black frame around the screen sported by a 17" Compaq behemoth. I'm still not sold on the black on silver combo, especially with the keyboard. Gives off sort of an unpleasant retro feel.

arn said it's fake. If it were real, he'd probably have taken the story down.

To each their own, I guess.

Quoted for truth I love that keyboard. If they do that with the macbook, I will pick one up.

I suspect you are right. I'm not sure that it would be very comfortable on the wrists though...

From a design perspective there is something peculiar, dishonest even, about a soft curve leading up to a sharp edge. I guess for the nanos it could be thought of as an attempt to evoke the "roundness" of the iPods of yesteryear in a much thinner package.

I'm sure Apple will settle upon a design that, like they did with the black bezel, is controversial for about five days then has everyone fawning over it.

I think it would be interesting to see Apple use colour-changeable LED's for the apple logo on the back of the screen so you could set it to a fixed colour or have it slowly fade between colours. It would allow people to customise their mac's external appearance without apple having to produce many different models and everyone would know it's a new mac when they see something other than the standard white apple.

These pics are definitely fake. The MacBook is just a current pro with a superimposed keyboard. The Pro is a 17" with superimposed iMac screen & macbook air keyboard. The quality is worse on that one because it had more work done to it & the creator had to hide the changes.

Seriously, this is far from having any right to be legitimate rumor, clearly a farce.

Those mockups look terrible.

A very rough mock-up:


Hopefully it will come with a white keyboard, and available anodized aluminum colors. maybe some speakers on the sides of the keyboard just like the MacBook Pro

If they move to an all glossy screen line up I'll be forced to look elsewhere. I don't want to use a PC, but if my only option with Apple is Glossy or Mac Pro then due to financial restraints I'll be at a loss.

Glossy screens are amazing, and if you don't like the "glare" don't view your screen right in front of a window. You could buy a Mac Mini and buy a monitor. The Mac Pro isn't your only option. You could also get a MacBook Pro.

That limits the number of rooms it's usable in. It's also not necessarily the the only places that it's bothersome to someone.

I have a couch right up to a wall with no windows. Maybe he could do that? If overhead lights are a problem he could turn the lights off. I really don't find it to distracting. It's kind of like a CRT TV or monitor. I don't notice reflections unless I look for them
