While it may look like the Giz was visited by one of Apple's little elves, what you're looking at is actually an ordinary MacBook. Albeit one that's in disguise. Tired with the MacBook's lack of color options, an inventive Apple fan customized their MacBook with Carbon Graphix, an easily attainable $20 vinyl sticker that looks like real carbon fiber. The sticker can be easily applied and removed from your MacBook to give it that MacBook Pro look. This definitely beats the alternative, and looks more polished too.
Good choice. That should definitely be more durable than even the black MacBook. Like most laptop musicians/VJs, I would personally cover up the Apple logo, though. (Sorry, Cupertino; I don't like your logo floating ominously when I'm onstage.)
The other choice is Wal-Mart woodgrain, like this guy did with his MIDI control surface:
I wish I were that good cutting these things.
Unless you're one of those insanely gifted Japanese laptop modders, in which case you carve it by hand out of teak.
