    Yes the apple is a clear cover to the backlight of the display. so long as the display is on the apple is lit up. also if the backlight is turned way down or off ambient light can come back through it.

    Some of my favorite mods involve covering up the translucent background making the apple different colors .

    I don't see what purpose coloring the Apple log would do. When you are using it, you won't see it as the logo is on the back side of the screen. Unless this is just for a "show off" to other people who are watching you using the Apple computer. If I doing eye-candy things on hardware, that would be only for myself.

    Does it do this on all of the the MB's as well? (the logo thing!)

    I know the keyboard is illuminated on the MBP, but if i'm to guess, that it's not on any of the MB's???

    Ah... I thought that you said you could buy overlays for it. That looks like a lot of work doing it yourself. But I guess if you're that dedicated...

    Um, because it's cheap, easy, and it personalizes your Mac? Not all mods are about performance.
