Don't think it will boot with the hood up.
Yeah, I guess it wouldn't be a good idea. I'm just surprised how much I don't like the shell. I wasn't expecting this metallic gray look, I think it's kinda tacky. I wonder how much the local body shop will charge to paint it something less ... cartoonish.
There's a small magnet embedded in the shell that lines up near the switch, I'm sure you can stick a small RE magnet at that point and it would boot.
Just got my nMP a few minutes ago. As I'm looking at it with the shell off, I think I actually like it that way. Anyone running without the case? Any reason not to?
Well, you're just a total *******, aren't you?
