    Yes, you can take the guts of your white MacBook and put them in a black one. They're identical in shape/layout as far as I know. If all you have is the case for the black one, then transferring the LCD screen may be a bit difficult. I've seen photos from people that used the white MacBook LCD screen with the black MacBook bottom section.

    It's surely more expensive than putting your MB on Ebay and buying a refurb Blackbook... and you'll likely void the warranty...

    As I recall, the black case costs more than the white case, so if you try buy one from Apple or a reseller, you'll b paying a lot for it, a lot more than it would cost perhaps to just buy the black version in the first place.

    You could go to colorware instead and get them to paint it.

    Why? So you can pretend that you bought the top-of-the-line model? So when you are at a coffee shop the chicks will dig you more because your MacBook is black?

    You know that it won't change the performance, right? Are you going to photoshop the 'About This Mac' window so it shows the BlackBook specs?

    If you want a black one so badly, just buy one- why bother with possibly damaging the MacBook innards and totally voiding your warranty? If you're asking how to do it on this forum, you probably don't have the skills needed to do it properly anyway. But go for it dude, let me know how that goes....


    Go to Staples, buy a black Sharpie, and colour away.....:eek:
