Got a little bored and modded the iBook

About ten to 15 minutes and IMO it was very easy. Just remove the 4 screws (two on each side) and slide a flat blade around the edge to release the tabs. Then the cover just pops off.

Leaving the part I cut out off and just sticking it back together without the blue makes it brighter also, as a second option. Monokote makes 20 different colors, so I am going to grab a few different one's and try lime green, as well as tangerine and a few others. People with black books can do red and it would look amazing.

WOW... that must be that yellowing problem with the screens that MBP owners complain about ;)

(and yes I know it's a MB in the pic)

In the interest of trying new colors, I am running yellow this week :)
The :apple: on my powerbook has been yellow for about a year. I also
used monokote. I think the powerbook may be a little more difficult than
the ibook, but it still only took about 20 minutes total.
