Similar to the new MacBook Pro, the next-generation MacBook Air will also use a bang design and a narrower frame.However, the latest news says that the frame and bangs of the new MacBook Air are white, not black like the MacBook Pro.
The news first came from the well-known whistleblower Jon Prosser (Jon Prosser) broke the news in May this year, he said that Apple redesignedMacBookAir will come in various colors, similar to a 24-inchiMac. Later, Tianfeng Securities analyst Guo Mingchi also made the same statement. Recently, the leaker Dylandkt, who has a reliable record of breaking the news, repeated this rumor, apparently based on his own sources.
Both Prosser and Dylandkt said that the bezels of the color MacBook Air models will be white or “off-white”, just like the screen bezels of Apple’s 24-inch color iMac, as well as an all-white keyboard. The two leakers also reiterated some rumors that Apple’s redesigned entry-level notebook will have several features adopted from the recently released 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, including mini LED display technology and controversial camera notch. .
Back to iMac
When Apple released a completely redesigned 24-inch iMac in April, and offered a range of colors, some observers were shocked by the white screen bezel (Apple calls it “light gray”) and wondered why Apple didn’t change it. The vibrant color scheme extends to the edges of the display, or at least replaces the bezel with black.
Apple’s head of product and marketing, Colleen Novelli, later explained in an interview: “The frame is a complement to the typical home design. One of the reasons for [the white frame] is to blend into the background. The other reason is for The user provides a more seamless experience”.
In this way, Apple claims that the black frame will bring too much contrast to most home decorations, but it is also hinting at another thing: the white frame is for casual Mac users, who are most likely to appreciate the iMac The color consumer group, the design of this color “brings a sense of light, optimism and happiness.”
Apple is basically saying that black borders are more suitable for creative professionals – for example, video editors and photographers who tend to work in darker environments. And we don’t need to wait for a larger iMac redesigned by Apple to see if it has a black border to prove this theory. Apple has already said that the black notches and bezels on the new MacBook Pros “look good in dark mode, and our professional users love it”.
