    I secretly longed for multi-colored MBs. I actually figured I'd get an orange the day they were released. Though they did not, I bought one anyway, I think Colorware voids the warranty though and this being a rev a product ... well yanno.
    Black looks great but I wish it came directly from Apple.

    I don't like the black actually...The trackpad looks yuk, its glossy (defeats the purpose of Aluminium) and figerprint-y and its too much of the same.

    Thats just my opinion though...

    Would be cool if they could anodize them another colour. That I would buy.

    I like the metallic 'dragon' green the best but am very happy with the way it is.

    I concur, if black was available from Apple in anodized I would jump on it. Partly due to the appearance of the anodized black but also due to the fact that I would hope the trackpad would be altered to black so it wouldn't stand out as much.

    Trackpad not matching = no thanks.

    Apple should have just made them in black too, but they shouldn't now, because I already bought mine ;)

    I agree with the previous posters, I love the way this looks (I would opt for the prowler shade) but could never justify paying so much especially voiding the warranty at the same time. I also don't like the way the trackpad looks.

    COlorware replace the warranty with their own so it's not voided.

    Are they going to replace your macbook if something goes wrong?

    Sure it looks very cool. I like it actually (trackpad not matching aside). However, $500 for it? Naaaahhhh. Also, Rev A's Aluminum MacBooks will need that warranty and voiding it is a sign you have the $$ to repair it.

    That's what a warranty is...

    If my product stops working, what do I do with it? Do I contact ColorWare or the original manufacturer?
    Any product customized by ColorWare is covered under a ColorWare warranty, and should be sent to ColorWare for service, repair, or replacement as needed. For more information on the warranty and warranty services, please see the Service & Support Section.

    This company's idea has always seemed ridiculously cool to me and I love playing around on the website, but frankly the prices are just way too expensive. Not saying the application of paint and such on the laptop doesn't cost a lot, its just its not worth my money to paint my laptop.
