Black Macbook

June 25th, 2013

Why doesn't Apple make the Black MacBook with the shiny glossy material used in the white ones?

Just out of curiosity, why does the Black Macbooks look matte looking (the exterior)? And the white ones are shiny; it's the only reason why i choose the white Mac, but it's starting to get dirty, and I hate cleaning it!!! I love my white mac, its pretty, and shiny, but I originally wanted the black macbook.

Does anyone know why this is?

Sometimes I want the black MacBook, too, with its' matte plastic exterior. They made the display shiny and reflective. You ask a really interesting question, though. Of all the black plastic things I own, they're all matte finish.

IBM Thinkpad --> matte black finish
AeroGarden --> matte black finish

It may be that, for some reason, gloss black finishes are difficult or expensive to produce.

I miss the translucent white of the iBook of yesteryear.
Gosh, what a finish...
