The logo was coloured when I started using Macs, and I preferred it that way... ;)
You mean the rainbow one? Im talking about making the logo into your favorite color.

white would be acceptable in any situation, office, coffeeshop, boardrooom, whatever. glowing green? pink? A little less versatile. I'd have to say white.

I chose to have it be the way it came outta the box... That said, I really do love the retro rainbow colored Apple. :eek:

On my dear PowerBook that cost a ton of dough and that I am going to baby while it's still under warranty: it can stay white. :) Too precious to mess with.

On my out-of-warranty old iBook that I don't care about so much and which I'm going to fix up: I might just use that cellophane-rainbow-stripes trick.

Yes, I would like it in my 6 favorite colors... :D

There's a tutorial somewhere about making a rainbow logo for iBook lids, but I'm too lazy to search, now... ;)

It would be fricken awesome if Powerbooks had the ability to change the color of the light behind the Apple logo (I know its the LCD backlight, but they could do a filter or something). You could change it to any color you want, or have it slowly rotate colors, or anything. How awesome would that be?

If you care to read the MR thread (well, only one of the many like it),
Linky... if you'd rather not wade through the thread, then the really well done guide of how to change that logo is here.

I'm sorry, but the rainbow apple logo was ugly and tacky and I couldn't be more happy that it is now defunct :p

I gotta say, I love my white logo on my Powerbook. I'll probably keep it the same color even when I make my Powerbook black (work in progress), just cause it'll look cooler. But on an iBook, it'd be cool if you could switch up the colors easily.

it would be awsome if i could customize the colour of my apple logo on the back of my PB, i'd make it different for every season
It's easy to do, you just take off the back of the screen housing and put a piece of colored plastic between the apple and the back of the screen. That's pretty much it.

Agreed. Didn't Apple patent some kind of color changing case? Hopefully not the lightbright style Dell uses. Something subtle like adjusting the hue of the Apple on the back would be good.

Yea, that's exactly what I'd love. The changing colors would be like those old christmas-tree lights that consisted of a plastic wheel of four colors that turned slowly in front of a light bulb. :)
I'm sure in the space provided, what I'm thinking isn't totally feasible. What I would like is the RGB leds so you can configure your own colored apple logo from the menu. You can leave it standard white if you wish, have it go Christmas light style, or bright red. The choice is yours!
