Here’s how Gateway describes the exterior of the MC laptops:

“The premium design of the new MC-Series is as impressive as its capabilities. Available in two colors, burgundy and black, the new notebook line features a streamlined design that blends materials and edges for a cohesive look and feel. Customers will first notice the cover’s distinctive synthetic leather branding stripe flanked by silver accents and Gateway logo embossed in zinc alloy metal. Upon opening the notebook, the dramatic edge-to-edge glass display and seamless transitions between materials and design elements provide a luxurious aesthetic. The elegant burgundy model has a deep, rich finish, a brushed metal palm rest and a black polished keyboard surround. The black model is polished to a deep, jet black shine and has a synthetic leather palm rest and black polished keyboard surround.”

Besides the offered MC7801u model, Gateway will launch the MC7803u ($999.99) that includes the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 512MB dedicated video card instead of the integrated GPU.
