Is Colorwarepc.com worth it?
absolutely not.. It looks cool but not $650 cool..
the price of an ipad just to change the color of a laptop? you are kidding, right?
It would be nice to have the MBA in different colors, but I believe the silver is nice. Besides, the cost is too much. That's basically a new desktop PC, new iPad2, 2 new iPhones, 2 new iTouch, a Mac Mini, and so much more!
For just a color change I think the price is over the top.
well do you guys know any where else that colors things professionally?
Looks fantastic but I'd rather get a decal if the paint job is gonna cost THAT much.
obviously paris hilton has ordered the pink one
Check out your local automotive body shops. Years ago a friend of mine had a PC case professionally painted and finished at one and it turned out great. I think it cost a couple/few hundred dollars, but nothing near $650.
If a shop agrees to do it for you, they'll likely only accept the unibody case, gutted of internals.
To add to the original topic: No, I don't think a nice paint job is worth $650 for a laptop. The system will end up being replaced sooner or later. Vastly cheaper options such as skins and cases are available and will likely get you 90% of the look for 5% of the cost.
I would debate even that first point.
If money was no object, I would go Maze and Blue. Keyboard, Logo, Blue, then the Lid, bottom, bezel, maze.
Yep, Big Ten, GO Blue!
Or if I played for Ohio State, They would slip me one under the door, of my new car..lol....
What is Maze?
It is worth it to some one who wants it,maybe that isn't you, but it might be the OP
I have seen their work, it is stunning! Is that worth $650? If you have the $$ why not?
Gee, I see they don't offer the 11",just the 13", I'd love coffee painted MBA 11" to go with the 360GB OWC inside
I had an '09 MacBook Pro which had been given the Colorware treatment (bought it that way from a friend). The quality of their work is incredible, and it was very scratch resistant and easy to keep clean.
The real downside, aside from the price, was that it voids the Apple warranty. I had a keyboard problem with that computer, and had to pay for the repair out of pocket, even though it was still within it's one year warranty.
So aside from the initial cost of the process, anyone considering this should be prepared to pay for any repairs your computer needs, regardless of age or warranty status.
You can buy the device of your choice from them and they will institute a 2 year (I believe) warranty, but I'm sure getting it serviced would be quite a chore.
They do it for both....i think.
haha ok, what is maize?
Maize is a shade of yellow.
It looks incredibly stunning, however, whilst studying I can not afford this (or I could, just don't find it responsible to spend my money that way), if I was done with highschool and had a well paying job I'd definately go for it though.
if someone spends 650 dollars to get his laptop painted, they probably aren't concerned about the possibility of having to pay for repairs...
Good point. If you have the funds go for it.
But, these days technology upgrades so quickly there's barely a year or so before a customer gets the next model up. Apple's refresh once a year is really making people upgrade even when they don't need to. It's a great business model
colorware gives you a warrenty.
If the iPhones are under contract then the contract needs to be figured into the cost of the phone. Without a contract the phones are much more expensive. Either way two new iPhones are not even close to that price.
