    TiPaint

    I heard it works good. You should hurry up and applicate it before the chip turns into a big spot.

    after only a week,!

    That is really fast, please tell me you did something stupid like lend it to a girlfriend who filed her toe nails on it.
    Or pushed it into a school locker stuffed with old razors.

    I hope it wasnt from normal wear.

    So is Ti paint to be used for such a thing or what.?
    Uhh whats Ti paint?

    Cripes , i havent even gotten my LSP for it yet.

    Lets see for damage control on the Ti we need...

    LSP <Laptop Screen Protector
    Carrying bag or sleeve for transport.
    podium, for overheating.
    Extra keys for when the letter "U" gets looseand falls away.
    And now Ti paint, whats Next?

    Is there an excuse to get those great metal usb lights?
    what does that protect or prevent or fix?cripes

    I have never scratched my TiBook (either the rev. a or now rev. c). Then again, I don't let other people use mine, or touch the screen (never know where those fingers were last ;) ).

    I'd suggest having your gf use it minus bracelets (and clothes if you can get away with it :D ).

    he he he. I actually take off my watch when using my tibook. Hardly got a scratch on my baby. I must admit, i was worried when i first got it, as it seemed as though it would be prone to nicks and scratches.

    Anyone know where i can get some bubble-wrap for it? :p
