    That isn't a bad looking mod to your PB. A little bit of a darker blue would make it better, but that's opinion. What price are you selling it for?

    The purple one was OK, but the blue one is gorgeous. What a color. Beautiful!

    I'd never try to do it myself, but I sure would love to have such a lovely Book.

    I have to say that I like drastik's mod. It looks like a pint of Guinness framed in blue.

    The only reason for painting a portable.

    A good way to avoid your powerbook/ibook from being stolen.

    BTW, all of them are terrible uglie.

    I think that a painted-on-the-inside iBook could look very groovy, but the colours I've seen most people choose just makes them look awful. That leopard skin one is unbelievable. I'm still in complete shock over having to see that.

    The one thing I've considered doing to my iBook is putting a sheet of translucent pink paper inside the apple, so as to have a pink glowing Apple logo :cool: -- and for good measure: :eek:

    Arigato,

    Personally If people like their iBook that way they should change it like that. I would not mod mine like that but if they want to its their 999+ machine to personalize to their harts desire....To me its like all these people with "mustang racing" stickers on their car when they are running a stock GT and they think they are all bad... if they want it tho, its their car and in the end they ruined their stuff not mine.

    Did anyone see the wooden veneer TiBook that was around last year? A beautiful job of veneering with mahogany and Wenge, looked stunning till you realised it was a TITANIUM POWERBOOK:eek:

    Why cover the best looking laptop in the world (at the time) with wood?

    I think the Tron iBook is cool.

    I've always liked the idea of customising cases, but Apples designs are generally soooo cool you wouldn't want to f**k with them. PC's? now there's another matter...:D
