My only setup is the BlackBook itself, but the artwork is custom :)

How did you get that? Your own design, something off the net or a store? and sent it to an online company or used your own cutting machine? Looks pretty neat.

I was going to do something similar on my alu macbook but with a cnc machine or laser etching machine and embed the design into the aluminium but didn't dare haha. Maybe in about 5 years :P

I took my old laptop to pieces and then painted it gloss black instead of a worn silver... Love customising things to make them truely unique :P

Thanks! I actually just went real cheap. I bought a yellow paint pen from an art supply store and went to town. I got some inspiration from Google Images for a few of the pictures, but besides that, just my own design.

As for the smiley face, I got an insert as a gift from a friend: http://www.icolours.ca/

And yeah, I love customizing! The last time I was at the Genius Bar, everyone there said they'd never seen anything like it...I'm surprised more people don't put their own touch on things.

It is surprising, Mac are the most creative computers, meaning more creative people use them. Why don't they customise them?
My guess is that people don't dare. I will only do it if I'm feeling lucky/daring or getting a new laptop just in case.

Good painting then :)

Wait. I just looked up "fliq" and "fliq screensaver" on google and it didn't come up with what I wanted. Do you mean Fliqlo?
