What Color is Mac Pro?

With all the hubbub over iPhone colors, the sparse discussion of the true Mac Pro color following yesterday’s announcement is surprising.

Phil’s “anodized aluminum enclosure” statement artfully dodges specifics. The wonderfully CSS animated Apple marketing page would have me believe they anodized to a solid black, much like the retro iPod Classic. Yet Apple’s epic, slow motion assembly video indicates it might be a mirrored dark silver. Or dare I say, “Space Gray”? But then the hands on photos just adds to the confusion.

So while a picture is worth a thousand words, I’d prefer a hex code, a Pantone Swatch or the word of a first hand observer.
