    From apple site:

    Power takes shape.

    MacBook Pro is meticulously designed for maximum performance in a minimum size. Bare minimum, in fact. It's 5.4 pounds of unparalleled portable power in only one inch. Encased in sleek and sturdy aluminum, MacBook Pro is just as ingenious on the outside.

    The MBP has been aluminum forever. That is the current model. The optical drive (of the new model) is going to be on the right side, not the front.

    You've missed something.

    The first image you posted from Apple.com is the CURRENT MacBook Pro (MBP). It has always been aluminum. However, due to a slew of rumors and leaked photos, we know that the MacBook (NOT PRO) will be gaining an aluminum case.

    How fat does that MacBook Pro look?
    Seriously, it's the one up from my model and it looks chunky as hell...

    even though the MBP is a surprisingly thin and sexy laptop.

    The current MacBook version is plastic. The rumor for tomorrow is aluminum. (Maybe just a aluminum shell with plastic on the outside, maybe the full thing.)
