MacBook Pro gets the pricey Stealth finish at ColorWare

At $6,000, the limited edition Stealth MacBook Pro from ColorWare isn’t cheap, but the glossy Stealth finish compensates genuinely for the hefty price. ColorWare is offering a limited editionrun of Stealth MacBook Pro units, which feature a custom matte screen that adds to the beauty of the already appealing MacBook Pro. ColorWare’s Stealth finish uses SofTouch technology that adds to its smooth-feeling covert look while protecting the surface from fingerprints. The tech specs include a 15-inch matte widescreen display, 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 8GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM, 256GB solid-state drive, SuperDrive 8x and backlit keyboard. Only 10 examples are available and I see them selling like hot cakes.
