Is this the new MacBook Pro?
The picture above claims to be a camera phone pic snapped by an Apple employee on the design team.
If the picture is real, it means the new MacBook Pros, expected to be unveiled October 14, have a few design changes:
1. It has a unique two-tone case. A first for Apple. The lid looks like it’s made of glossy black plastic, with an aluminum bottom.
2. The lid dispenses with hook clasps in favor of a magnetic latch mechanism, like current MacBooks.
3. There’s no multitouch sensitive “glass touchpad,” as rumored.
The Apple source also sent an ad featuring the MacBook Pro that is destined for Apple’s website.
The MacBook Pro ad after the jump.
The ad, however, looks patently fake. As does the tagline:
“A blend of beauty meets beastly power.”
That doesn’t sound like Apple at all.
