    This really is not a concern or infact an issue.
    Just more so an idea I was curious about.

    1st; is the illuminated apple on the back part of the Display/LCD Backlit? and does it consume much more power than the display/lcd itself/

    I recently picked up a refurbed time capsule and thought how nice a mirrored apple logo like on the capsule would look on the new aluminum unibodies instead of the glowing apple (or perhaps a nice ring around the mirror finish logo)

    :cool: just sayin'

    To your left or right
    the apple on the back of the screen is lit by the screen. so there is no separate light source for it that would eat up battery life.

    I have always wondered about that, as well. Thanks for the info. ;)

    Yeah, and you can also tell by looking at the lit logo while adjusting the screen brightness. You'll see it corresponds with the brightness of the screen. :)
