    Well I thought of a "great" idea. I was thinking to buy a clear Incase Hard case and spray painting the inside lime green. I figured if it worked it could be pretty cool. If not, well I'm out $30. The only thing is if the paint would rub of on the computer even though it is on the inside.

    Can you apply something like the invisible shield on the laptop and still have the incase hard case on it? I am not sure if that'll work.

    Painting it sounds like a great idea, but you at least considered the possibility of it coming off on the macbook. My question would be this. If the incase hard case were going to rub so much that the paint comes off wouldn't people who used it complain the hard case scratches their macbooks? Think about it. Rubbing would cause scratching and I haven't heard reports of that thing scratching macbooks yet. I'd almost say if you spray paint the inside, apply a clear coat sealant/protectant after the fact and make sure you give it a few days to dry and set.

    The additional thickness would make the case not attach.

    isn't the invisible shield just about razor thin? I've got a "best skins ever" film over my iPod and I don't notice any difference in thickness

    The incase is so tight that it would be impossible; the negligible thickness combined with the resistance that the film creates (friction, tackiness) would mean that you couldnt slide it on, and it barely "slides" on easily as it is.

    As a side note, I used the in incase slider over my iPhone with an invisible shield, and it was hard to get on. Impossible to get off. I had to literally pry it off and bend it.
