    My new screen came in today so it was time to put the iBook back together. While i was at it i stopped by michaels and got some colored celophane plastic stuff that is used to put together gift baskets according to my gf. I think it came out pretty damn good.

    that looks really good. i ordered some photo flash filters with like 40 colors for $4 to do my powerbook, my ibook and my gf's ibook. i think i'm either going to do mine in orange, blue or actual apple color like yours

    This wasn't the first time i've had the iBook apart. This was after one week of ownership. I replaced the 30gb hdd with a 60gb hdd 7200rpm. lol Kinda dumb now that i think about it because of warranty issues but it's been going strong for 2 years.

    How can I pull this on my MacBook Pro? Hmm... would it invalidate the warranty?

    What about really nice markers? Like rendering markers? Could I just color the outside?

    That's pretty cool. It would be badass if someone made a rainbow one so you could color it like Apple's logo was before the solid white.

    I can't crack my MacBook Pro screen, but I'm going to try those paints at the arts and crafts store for kids stained glass windows on the outside of mine to do this.

    i'm not feeling this mod for myself. I prefer the sleek look of just the white, ambient apple logo.

    I think it looks tacky :dunno: It's your notebook though, i'm just voicing my opinion. I really don't think it will help the resale value either

    Sweet I've been thinking about doing that since I got the ibook, just wasn't sure if it could be done (and didnt want to dismantle it to find out). Now if only I had some free time.. :o

    2 small allen screws on each side of the LCD casing and then unsnapped the bezel apart.
