Thinner. Screwless. Perfect heat-dissipation. Free from the design compromises imposed by traditional machining processes. 9-5 Mac reports that Apple's forthcoming "Brick," hitherto a conceptual blank canvas on which to project any fantasy, is in fact a new aluminum-cutting process:
The MacBook manufacturing process up to this point has been outsourced to Chinese or Taiwanese manufacturers like Foxconn. Now Apple is in charge. The company has spent the last few years building an entirely new manufacturing process that uses lasers (w/o sharks) and jets of water to carve the MacBooks out of a brick of aluminum.
It's anonymously-sourced, but has a the mundanity of truth about it, eh? Apple: able to make anything sexy, even industrial milling!
The 'Brick' is... [9-5]
