I have seen black macbooks get laser engraved (Kevin Rose's for example), but does anyone know how it would look on a white macbook? I have already found a local company to do it, just not sure how it would look on the white plastic....

Odds are it wont look to stellar on a white MacBook. The engraving would really only stand out in a reflection.

They could, but wouldnt stand out as well as on a MBP or a Blackbook.

Gotta agree. I would never do it to mine. Waste of $$$.

The laser engraving on a white MacBook actually turns out black. The plastic used in the MacBook is specially engineered to change color when engraved. Here (http://www.epiloglaser.com/sc_macbook.htm) is the Epilog Laser page on the white MacBook.
