Have any links you care to share? (I Googled and New Egg'ed like crazy, but couldn't find anything?!)
though the aluminium on my macbook pro has a slight texture to it, has never struck me as typically cold and metallic.
I was in an Apple Store last week, and I have to say that the "brushed aluminum" on the new MacBook Pro's almost felt like plastic. Yet, I am suspicious, and such a minor thing could REALLY ruin a person's experience with a new laptop.
I know that I HATE how my aluminum Apple Wireless Keyboards feel... Cold and metallic!! :mad:
