    Back in the olden days I found a site detailing how to do this on a PowerBook. Never dared crack open that PowerBook back then and I don't dare do it to my Macbook! Does look nice. Probably the only mod I'd ever consider.

    ^^ You'd never take a black magic marker and put tribal tattoos all over the cover? What's wrong with you? :eek:

    OP: Meh all he did was cut out the Apple logo with an exacto knife so the back of teh screen shows through :D

    Such a cool mod, by far the best/most complex mod I've seen of the Apple logo, kudos to the modder.

    If you had access to the correct tools you could do it, apple got the display in a unibody, I'm sure you can get it out.

    The screen panel is built into the display housing, i've taken a few apart and its not easy without causing obvious damage.
