Apple calls the new MacBook Pro in Space Black, "a gorgeous dark aluminum finish, with a breakthrough anodization method that resists fingerprints." The enclosure is created from a custom alloy that uses 100% recycled aluminum and is described as "very durable."

M3 Pro and M3 Max models are also available in Silver, while the 14‑inch MacBook Pro with M3 is available in Silver and Space Gray – but not Space Black.

The new Macbook Pros come with an 'advanced thermal system' -- aka a fan.

I'm sure it's the most innovative fan they've ever put inside a laptop.
