T-Systems (owned by Deutsche Telekom like T-Mobile, but not like Mr. T) is apparently selling a very interesting MacBook Pro. All the specs are exactly the same as the current gen. But does that look like a MacBook Pro you've ever seen? The "safe" explanation is that it's just a mock/mix-up.

I question the photo though because of where the aluminum meets the bezel; it's rather thin and looks like it could be executed better.
