Apple's new M1 MacBooks are ridiculously powerful. They've blown away users and critics alike with their unprecedented speed and battery life, and are being touted by some as the future of laptops. All pretty impressive, right? Our only disappointment is that they look exactly the same as their predecessors (and their predecessors) – but could that all be about to change?

A new patent filing reveals that the company is working on a new matte black finish that isn't just dark – it literally absorbs light. The current M1 MacBook Pro comes in the same space grey, silver or gold the company has been using for the last seven hundred years, but, if these rumours are true, it seems our best laptop for graphic design could soon look very different. And, in our minds, it's already the most beautiful looking MacBook to date.
