Guest speaker, Apple Designer Jony Ive, had us reverting to our middle school days when he presented us with slides that dissected a MacBook and MacBook Air. The focus was on the encasing that comes with the new MacBook Pros that will look very similar to the MacBook Air. In the past, MacBooks have been produced with layers of materials that make the MacBook Pro strong but heavy. When Apple released the Air, they started fresh and encased the Air in just one layer of aluminum — making it lighter, slimmer, and stronger.
The new MacBooks and MacBook Pros will all follow this anatomy with just one slice of aluminum, which has been molded around its parts. I got a firsthand look at the new skeleton of the MacBook Pros – trust me when I say it's light!
