    Oh, dear:

    http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/

    Isn't doing this to your Xbox the equivalent of installing neon strips on the bottom of your Ford Focus? ;)

    Fair disclosure: I am getting my 360's original white faceplate turned into a Bob Rankin painting, just as he did to one of my laptops... should have it back from him by Christmas, so my 360 will become an abstract work of art. But this is still just a temporary change, as the faceplates are exchangeable.

    it would be a cool effect - like they've been cryogenically frozen

    I really like the color and the clear window. Take away the neons and it looks pretty good.

    yeah I like the color and the clear window! But I'd rather put neon strips on a ford focus.

    Oh dear thats foul. how can people find that sort of thing attractive for a machines? Its like those people who mod PC's. I just don't see any point. you cant do it to be 'different' anymore as just about everyone these days has a modded PC!

    as for the abstract art Xbox360... I could get my little sister to do an abstract Mod for any of my systems and not have to send it away! :)

    I don't have to send the 360 away... just the extra white faceplate. That's the beauty of removeable parts. :)

    I actually kinda like it. But my Windows PC has a window in the side like that, too.

    Yuck! Something about cold cathodes, LEDs, a can of spray paint, and a window doesn't sound too cool to me.

    Then, I added some fins to lower wind resistance. And this racing stripe here I feel is pretty sharp.

    Too obscure? ;)

    If The Simpsons is obscure, then yes. ;)

    looks like ebay removed the item from auction. It actually doesn't look too bad, but then again, I wouldn't ever want mine to look like that.

    It's not like I asked if 'D'oh' was too obscure, one line from one episode over 15 years is quasi-obscure. :D

    don't forget the neon splat graphics, and fake bullet holes to look really tough...

    Crikey... it's at $1,125 with 27 bids and 9.5 DAYS to go. The reserve price has already been met.

    We should take bets (for bragging rights only) as to what the final price will be. My guess: $1,900.
