Apple MacBook Coming in Colors?

Appleinsider revives a rumor that Apple may reintroduce colors into the upcoming Intel iBooks (MacBooks).

Apple introduced colors to the Mac platform in the Bondi Blue iMac in 1998. This was followed by a number of different colored iMacs and patterns. Later, Apple settled back on the current glossy-white enclosure of the current iMac and current iBook.

Given the recent success of the black-iPods, Apple is reportedly considering introducing other colors into the upcoming MacBook notebooks.

According to the rumor site, Apple has been especially secretive about the potential colors that they are testing for the upcoming notebook, but there are suggestions that there will be at least two colored MacBook models. Instead of semi-translucent colors, they are reported to be solid-shade colors.

An earlier unverified report had claimed that Apple was going to be introducing light-weight notebooks with a "stylish design" aimed at targeting female customers.
