You really don't want to know how much I'd pay for a carbon fiber or... chrome Macbook Air. God damn.

PS: I prefer the gold Macbook Pro, but thats probably because I don't like the Macbook Air's keyboard and I'm too distracted by it.

While that looks pretty cool I can't begin to think of how hard it would be to keep it clear of a shit load of fingerprints.

Does the weight of that thing totally negate the whole "lightweight portability" argument?

[edit]Forgot it's plated. Best I could do is gold leaf...

Good craftsmanship.

Here's the final shot of it.....Not incredibly happy with the keyboard and trackpad. I'd like to have both vaccuum metalized. I'll work on that for the polished gold (inside and out) one next. You'll never guess who it's for :D

Like others said, I'm not a fan of the gold, but the work done on it is simply awesome and you get many hats off for it.

The Chrome one on the other hand looks fucking amazing and you get even more props for it.
