So, yeah we should be over this one by now but something that really bothered us when we reported on MacBook Air sightings in September of 2007 was that our source had seen black versions of the MacBook Air.  We were really excited about this possibility and were let down when the Airs were released in only silver at Macworld 2008.

Turns out there were some black MacBook Airs “floating” around Cupertino.  But for whatever reason, they never made it to the assembly line.

A MacRumors forum member reports on a prototype that made it out to the real world a few years after it, or one of its brethren, were spotted by our spy.  It is good to know that there was some more truth to that one, even over a year later.

Oh yeah…the screen to the edges?…disregard that part :P
