    here's an idea: if you put a macbook pro classic (one of the last ones before the unibodies) trackpad in it, you'd have multitouch
    was the unibody glass fitting in there hard?

    I mean this macbook pro, the trackpad has the same size as the one in the white macbook. I've seen someone mod his own white one to have multitouch thanks to this.

    Looks great! Well Done.

    Not sure about putting a MBP Track pad in though. . . Would you have to have the silver surface and possibly button? If so I'm not sure how good that would look.

    I suppose you can keep the button of the regular macbook, while the surface of the pad is actually quite grey on the macbook, I don't know if there's a noticeable difference..

    Find a CCFL backlit LCD that fits in there that equals the B133EW04 V.0 in quality for the finishing touch. the LP133WX1 and compatible workalikes look awful.

    I always feel guilty telling people "yes" when they ask if I use the same one Apple uses for that model, because the one Apple uses is ****!

    That looks fantastic. Would you mind telling how it was done? Or was it as simple as removing the white bezel and placing the glass one over it?

    This looks very nice. I cant wait to see the finished result.

    I think an all black apple would look nicer then the zebra but thats just a personal preference.

    adhesive transfer tape. use butanone to remove the old adhesive. If pregnant, mod is not recommended, as inhaling butanone causes birth defects. But it's the only thing that will get rid of 100%(not 90%, or "enough", or 99%) of the old adhesive.

    The adhesive is redundant with the stock bezel, since there are clips. Apple is silly.

    Did you even remove the white bezel? It kind of looks like the glass is sitting on top of the current screen and bezel, although wouldn't that make it difficult to close the lid? Also how does the iSight work with the new glass?

    Yeah, post some more pics please! I'm really curious about this. I sooo want my white MB to look like that, I'm just way too afraid to mod it like that :eek:

    I wish there were a way to make the bezel black without having to remove it. Like, maybe some really thin piece of plastic to go over the entire screen, thin enough to not affect the closing of the macbook, dark black on the bezel area, but clear over the screen. I love the look of the white MacBooks but find the white bezel to be distracting. IMHO it should make what's on the screen pop out at you and create some contrast, and all that white right next to the screen just doesn't do that.

    Hi Sorry keep u waiting.

    The mod is easy, remove the old and put the new, you can put it with double face tape. u must be carrefull but if u done it well the result are perfect.

    the iSight work perfect if you put the glass ok. but u cant see the iSight ligth.

    I will update the keyboard soon.

    thanks for the opinions!
