New MacBooks may get aluminum cases

Rumours claim laptops will take on MacBook Air styling

The re-designed MacBooks and MacBook Pros are likely to have aluminium-based cases, similar to those sported by the MacBook Air, according to AppleInsider.

The website also suggests that Apple intends to replace the Firewire 400 port and the MacBook Pro's DVI-I ports with a Firewire 800 port and a mini-DVI port.
