    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'

    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. :)
