Flat body is probably going to be less comfortable. It might cut into your thighs and palms.
And white keycaps to boot... This just might be the ugliest MacBook ever.
That's one of the biggest issues I have with the physical design of my laptop (T14s). The keyboard deck is flat with "sharp" edges (not really sharp, but not rounded), and when typing it digs into my wrists and is quite uncomfortable. As for the white keys, I can't remember which laptop it was, but there was one I looked at reviews for several months ago and it came with white or dark keys, and the review (or might have even been multiple reviews) said the (white) backlight on the white keys was difficult to see in the dark.

Light bezel makes display stand out more, instead of blending in. Of course, it depends on what the display is displaying. It also stands out more in an environment. Essentially, the problem is that it's drawing attention.
Exactly, but Apple products tend to be a fashion statement as much as they are functional. I know I wouldn't like a light bezel.

Apple is still the only(?) manufacturer that makes a true laptop. Thus one you can use on your lap without blocking cooling inlets, because there are no inlets in the bottom plate!
This, 1000x this. It's ridiculous how a laptop isn't even a laptop anymore. They're "notebooks," and the manufacturers recommend not
using them on your lap. How absurd. How about just designing them better? I use my T14s on my lap every day, and every...single...time it gets extremely hot, to the point the keys are uncomfortable to touch and it gets warm enough on my legs to make me warm. At least I don't have to turn the heat on as high... The CPU temp is regularly in the 80s and 90s, and yesterday it hit 99-100 and started lagging. This is all with an extremely minimal workload, all because it has a single fan on the bottom, not even centered to be between the legs, or on the edge to easily decenter it on the lap and let the fan breathe, but perfectly placed to be covered by my leg regardless of how I position it. Unbelievable how sloppy the engineering is.
