    ha ha are there any other alternatives?

    i was thinkinga bout taking a knife or something slim to pry it out, then either make my own logo or tear it off from some old computer and tape it onto it

    If it bothers you so much, you shouldn't have purchased a Dell. Dell makes a quality monitor, give them their due.

    Just see if anyone will give you one of their Apple stickers and slap that on there.

    It seems wrong to put an Apple logo on a Dell. Am I alone here?

    That's almost as bad as putting a big wing, NOS sticker, and a Type-R Logo on a Kia.

    1) An angle grinder will take that logo off in seconds flat. Careful here...
    2) Bondo to fill up the scratches left by the angle grinder, then
    3) Careful sanding to recontour the bondo to the slightly convex bezel, then
    4) Hmm, matte black model paint to cover up the bondo, then
    5) Uh, what was the objective again?

    I wouldn't buy it. And don't you think thats a little harsh and insensitive to compare the two?

    Sadly, MacRumors is far more stable on IE than on Firefox or Safari. On the others, postings links quite often get malformed pages that display code. IE works better for me with MR, in both Win and Mac.

    *nods in agreement* *grumble, grumble*

    As for the "project", I wouldn't do it if I were you. You won't keep that monitor forever, and one day you will want to sell it. And you'll probably kick yourself having the cosmetic damage that devalues the monitor to petty $$$.

    I've never found any need to install IE on my Mac. MR works just fine in Safari (plus you get spellchecking), and any website that only supports IE usually isn't worth visiting.

    Too right but this thread has been hijacked.....

    Don't see any obvious ways you could replace the dell logo with an apple one unless you know your stuff with modding and could chip it off and create your own apple logo and stick it on...

    Personally i wuldnt bother getting rid of the dell stuff as it will probably damage your beautiful monitor...

    Sorry, I had completely forgotten about what the thread was about by the time I got to the bottom :D

    I've got a Widescreen 20" Dell, personally I don't want to break it by prising off the logo, it might end up more ugly than when it started.
