Apple Quietly Eliminates Rose Gold Color for MacBook

With all the hubbub and focus on the updated MacBook Air, Mac mini, and iPad Pro, Apple made a small little change to the MacBook lineup today too.  The Rose Gold color option is no longer available.  You can now only get it in Silver, Space Grey, and Gold.  That Gold color has also been updated to the same gold finish of the new Air so everything is all matchy-match.

It is unclear why Apple eliminated the somewhat popular color.  It could have been for lack of sales but given that Rose Gold remains for the Apple Watch and iPad line up, it is a bit of a head scratcher.

As for the MacBook itself, outside of dropping this color option, there is no change.  It remains at a starting price of $1299 for the Intel m3-core model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage.  You can read my review of it here as the MacBook is my daily driver here at Average Apple Guy.

The 2017 laptop is readily available from the Apple Store.  Stock configurations are available for as quickly as overnight shipping while custom configurations can take up to a week to get to you.  If you are set on getting a Rose Gold model, you can still pick them up in the Apple Refurbished section of the Apple Store.
