Leaked Photo of Aluminum MacBook Pro Case

Well what do we have here? The curious shot above was recently born on a Chinese blog and has since began making quite a trip around the internet. Allegedly picturing a prototype of the upcoming redesigned MacBook Pro case, the first thing you’ll notice is obviously the fact that the case is made of the same sleek brushed aluminum found on the MacBook Air. It has been rumored for months that Apple is working on the next incarnation of the MacBook Pro and that it would feature an all-aluminum case a la MacBook Air. If the image above is to be believed, the next generation MacBook Pro case will essentially be a thicker version of the Air’s – exactly what many Apple fans have been clamoring for. Unfortunately there isn’t much else we can tell from the photo. Only half of the bottom of the case can be seen which means that the bottom of the unit will not be one solid piece like the Air. It also appears that the standard Apple logo on the top of the case has three holes in it (four including the leaf). These curious holes don’t seem very conducive to back lighting but assuming the case is real we hardly want to question an Apple design. If there’s one thing Apple can do, it’s design a stunning piece of gear. The original post doesn’t claim to have any information in terms of specs or a time frame so for those tidbits we’ll just have to sit back and wait.
