    So, I posted in another thread somewhere on this forum that I was going to be wrapping/changing the color of my macbook pro to white, since I didn't like the factory silver too much.

    I do a lot of automotive vinyl work and graphics, so this was very familiar territory for me, just on a smaller scale.

    I only wrapped the outside of the case for now, as I just wanted something on there to protect it from getting dirty, etc, as I use my MBP for travel/outdoors a lot.

    Maybe if there's enough people interested, I can make a a couple of sets for people.

    Anyways, enough talk, onto the pictures:

    I'd like to see some pictures that aren't cropped quite as much so I can't get a better idea of how it looks. My first impression is that it looks pretty good, although it would look better if the Apple logo weren't covered.

    Not sure if you guys wanted to see my DVD collection in the back or not. It was pretty dark in the background anyways. I'll try to take some better pictures later.

    Is that an Xbox 360 RROD in the fourth picture down?

    I could just poke holes in where the screws go in. Quite easily actually. The wrap can also come off 100% without damaging the finish on the macbook.

    No, that's my HTS in standby mode.

    what would a vinyl wrap cost for a 15" uMBP, Don?

    Not sure. I'd need a local guy to test it on a 15" model. Mine is a 17".

    I am in Orange County. Anyone interested? Haha.

    It's also just the outer cover, top and bottom. Doesn't include/do the sides, because there's actually not too much surface area for it to adhere to. I think it'd start coming off relatively quick if it was applied there.

    Haha, alright. Maybe we'll set up a date for you to come by and have me take a look at everything. Shoot me an e-mail with your basic contact info. My e-mail is donathon@gmail.com

    I am going to try and replicate the one on my 17" and then downsize it, and hope to see how well it'll fit/work from that, so I have a base to work with.
