    Too cool! The prices aren't bad either. I think I just found my sister's Christmas present. :)

    That'll be a sweet present. Any ideas on what you're going to get etched into the iPod?

    Not yet. I've got a while to think about it still.

    They have some demo units here at MWB. There's even a 15" PB cover with the Budweiser label! :D They look pretty nifty, and they'll probably hold up fairly well. I want a Ferrari prancing horse on my PB :D

    That's awful! Why would anyone do that to their Powerbook?

    I wouldn't get beer ads, but it would be cool to get something. Noone could steal it and say it's theirs. :D

    I though about removing the covers of my PB, having them anodized and dyed orange and then laser etching a design down one side of the top cover.

    Their pricing is very competitive with the laser etching companies in my area.

    I don’t see if they do both raster and vector graphics.
    The best systems don't require rastering.

    My thoughts exactly. This would make a PowerBook personal.

    I must be dull becausee I prefer them plain. I'm a minimalist kind of guy.

    I wonder if they would do a Power Mac G5? Than I could do what I've always wanted and have a large "666" on the side of the box: after all, my machine's name is "the beast".

    Ouch! Why does it hurt my eyes to see PB's like that?

    I like them plain and simple. They're so sexy that way.

    I wouldn't mind getting pinstripes all across my iPod mini. :D Or have my face engraved on top of the iPod logo, below where Apple engraved my name. Hehe.
