Hey guys, I've been lurking here for a while and I must say it's a great community. I just bought the Aluminum Macbook 2.0 GHz like 3 weeks ago at best buy (100 bucks off) and I love it. It still was a pretty expensive at $1200, but I bit the bullet because I loved the design and I wanted to have a notebook that I actually liked using and looking at, while not losing any of the productiveness. The one thing I would LOVE to have though, is the backlit keyboard. Now, I know I could have gone and spent $300 more to get it, but I know that I can't justify a $1500 notebook, especially if it was just mainly for the backlight. (The specs on the 2.0 are completely perfect for me, and I'm a college student so I can't just work overtime next week or something.) This thread is for all the people scouring the internet looking for some type of solution to this problem. I am going to update this whenever I find any information on how to actually do it. Right now there are a couple of leads: Buy a USB light This is definitely a solution that a lot of people are going to go with, especially because there's no hacking involved. If someone knows about a good USB light and can recommend it that would be awesome. Hack the LED lights into the actual keyboard This looks like it's going to be hard, but definitely possible see how both macbook are basically the same machine. When iFixit.com comes out with more information I'll update this section, right now their Aluminum Macbook section is empty. Applying some type of glow gunk / place something on the keyboard to help visiblity I did a little research and one site came up that had glow in the dark stickers to apply to the keyboard....I know, it sounds like a bad idea. If anyone has any insight on this please let us know. If anyone has any other ideas or anything that would be awesome, as I'm sure that we can do something about this. Oh and please, don't just tell me to spend the $300, it's out of the question. Thanks!
