old macbook pro vs new


Today, Apple announced the new Macbook and Macbook Pro. The obvious design changes include a glossy screen, slightly thinner, rounder edges, no visible screws, no trackpad buttons, a black screen bezel, and black chicklet keys. I won’t get into the technical aspects since the purpose of this is article is to get an idea of what your views are on the design of the new Macbook. Do you like the new direction that Apple is going with their design? What would you have done differently?


My opinion: I kind of liked how the previous Macbook Pro had a single color. It looks expensive. The black on metal looks cheaper to me. I do like how the newer Macbook Pros have less visible screws and no touchpad buttons. I also like that it looks so much thinner. I like the look of the new Macbook Pro, but I would have preferred that they give the option of a single color instead of the duo-tone. Certain aspects of the new Macbooks have some similarities to Sony Vaio SZ and TZ line don’t they? Chicklet keys, duo tone. That is not an insult either, I think the Vaio SZ and TZ lines look great.
