    I'd leave the Apple and the Trackpad untouched.

    Otherwise... sexy

    the nice thing about the apple logo is that the light shines through all the edges of it.

    I like it on the top lid but IMO it looks terrible around the keyboard and trackpad.

    Have to agree. The metal edges make it look very tacky, if it was a complete wrap it may look better. The wood is a bit...false looking though.

    I'd rather a naked rMBP than have one of these :eek:

    Just IMO though..

    Congratulations it's pretty nice

    Personally I would've just kept the lid as you did it and removed everything elee because I think it looks a little strange with the silver rectangles for the speakers.

    Can see how some would like it, but it's not for me. Personally, I just love the aluminium (al-oo-min-ee-um ;) ) feel and look.

    I like the aluminum feel look. But certain parts of this shines IMO. The only thing that would be cool if everything had the dark wood skin, for instance the speakers, which is impossible I know. I guess if they made a unibody dark wood skin macbook it would be awesome, but all the aluminum parts just look tacky with it. I guess I can dream though :D
