    I'm on an iMac g4 at the moment and looking at the stainless steel apple inset on the base. Beautiful. Does anyone have any idea if and where one might be available for the white macbook (or would it have to be a DIY)?

    DIY. though that would be a really cool project. get a little apple machined then chromed somewhere. if you have access to a machine shop it might be worth it, but if you dont and would have to pay for the machining, it would probably be way too expensive!

    . . . that just gave me a cool idea. get a blackbook then make a red-anodized apple insert! cool!!!

    I've got a white g4 iBook and I've always wanted to make my Apple glow green... Anyone know how I could do this?

    its easy to place a colored sheet behind the apple to make it 'glow'!!! check out my site and you will see how I have done such a mod to a 12" iBook, 12" PB and 15" PB. all pretty much the same and not to hard at all! (plus easy to undo if you have to send it in for for repair!)

    The old school Apple is so sweet and just plain groovy! I am buying that later tonight
