First MacBook Pro Photo Surfaces?

First MacBook Pro Photo Surfaces?

Posted September 25, 2008 at 1:39pm by iClarified
A picture of an alleged new MacBook Pro has been posted online. The MacBook has an aluminum casing, glass track pad, and tapered edges. There is also black trim around the edges of the screen.

iPhoneSavior has been unable to confirm the authenticity of this image captured in the wild. Sources claim in an email communication that the photo came via an Apple staffer.

What do you think?

Fake. The angle of the photo does not correspond to the angle of the iPhone shown in the Photo Booth window!

could be sweet if it was real, but... how come the isight green light is not on when photobooth is being used?

Fake... You can se that the touchpad fades at the left side. also the magnetlock looks just like the macbook in black and white but its looks sweet doh!

Actually Tony, this falls in place with a patent filing from apple with the glass dock. What I really want is the internet tablet...

This is *SO* fake! The idea that the dock would be in the touchpad is ridiculous! What happens if like many I have 15+ icons in the dock? You think you'll be able to see them? or that you will have to scroll the dock side to side? Yeah right - thats makes sense!

that is not a camera in his hands, it's an iphone, first gen. that's why the quality is so low. the dock on the trackpad would be awesome. i'm hoping for a bigger trackpad on the MBPs

The picture is taken by an iPhone. Thats probably why the quality is so "bad".

Why is it that, whenever pre-production shots are leaked, they are always tiny, low-quality images? Isn't that a modern camera in the person's hand? As long as that camera were manufactured later than 1999, it should capture more than 320x240 without any problem. Maybe pre-production units auto-convert images to low quality, low pixel images. Much like UFOs do....

If you look close enough, the dock is the right way up - indicating the dock is in fact in the touchpad, NOT a reflection of a non-existing one on the screen. Although this is very creative and inative, it better work damn well or it will be very hard to justify using an almost iPhone like touchscreen trackpad instead of a normal trackpad. I myself am holding out for the new MacBooks (currently have no main computer! I need one asap!) and if that is implimented in the MB aswell as MBP, it better work properly!

Wow. A "brick" shaped glass trackpad. If this is true, the next mac event will be "all about the Brick" shaped glass trackpad.

Photoshop is an amazing piece of software. Also the apple guy's T'shirt isnt genuine, it's the same as the one i bought online.

Wow! Trackpad is not only glass, but is actually also a screen? Would be brilliant!

Yes. I really like it.

Does anyone else notice that the dock is not on the screen, but is on the trackpad?
