New Macbooks dump plastic for eco-friendly aluminumAppleInsider's network of loose-lipped leakers claim they've seen the new MacBooks about to go into production. Gone are the plastic casings that nagged Greenpeace — and scratched way too easily.

I've already ordered our aluminum Xmas tree, honey. (Photo by AP/Jeff Chiu)
