....we live in a society that devalues the elderly....so yes, the silver haired one is cheaper (worth less) in their eyes.....

Blame steve jobs - the 2006-2008 black macbook cost $100 more than the white one. Black is 'cool', silver is not.

I thought the darker model reflected the 'Pro' monicker.

It actually only cost $50 more.

I bought one. It got the larger HD option, and when compared to the white MB with that option, it was only $50 more, so I went for it, happily.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Maybe he's confusing the TrackPad with an Apple Card.

Hint: The Apple Card will fit in one's wallet, the TrackPad won't.

The Apple Card may stain, the TrackPad won't.

All my MTP's have a silver surface.

I think he's talking about the only currently shipping standalone trackpad, the Magic Trackpad 2. White surface as opposed the the gen 1 silver. White isn't $20 cheaper; black is $20 more. I guess the white matches the keys in most Apple standalone keyboards, but it does look out of place next to today's iMac and Macbooks. I can see why some people miss the silver surface.

Right you are!

In all the excitement, I clean forgot...

Do I have Magic TrackPads, or Magic TrackPad 2s?

Oh, two of the former and one of the latter. ::insert facepalm here::


The Space Gray MTP2 is part of the Mac Pro lineup along with a matching Al keyboard.

They're nice looking an all, but I'm about Space Gray'ed out.

I like the standard MTP2.

But my heart will always belong to trackball devices, starting with the Kensington TurboMouse.
