What are the drawbacks to having my MBP engraved with my name and phone number? A few weeks ago I had my MBA stolen. I got a MBP to replace it. Now I'm thinking of having my name and phone number laser engraved on the lid behind screen so that it would always be visible. I searched this forum and found two threads on others that engraved with designs. A lot of sarcastic folk commented that it kills the value so you can't resell it. In 25 years of using PC's of all types I've never sold one. So that's not a problem. One person researched and found out that it would not void the warranty. I can't think of any other possible problems.
