Hi, I'm in the process of buying a Macbook Pro because it has become all but mandated that I have one. And I don't mind as I have slowly been migrating to OS X for the last year starting with the iMac. There is one thing that bothers me though and it's that huge white Apple logo on the back of Macbooks. This has been brought up before: Removing Apple logo from back of LCD This is the very last response to that thread: Sorry for resurrecting an old thread but I think he missed some important point. These machines come at a premium and are not, as far as I know, subsidised by advertisement. I am not particularly partial to any company, and I think that Apple makes good machines, and for my work (and for many others) it would be inconvenient to use any other system, so I'll buy the machine. Is it too much to expect that the paying end-user wouldn't have a huge glowing logotype on his or her machine? Promoting the most profitable multinational corporation in the world at that. Just because you have to be on this OS doesn't mean you endorse or could even know what Apple does as a business. Again other manufacturers are probably not much better and often probably worse when it comes to labour and environmental practices. But the macbooks in particular are some of the worst offenders when it comes to using customers as walking advertisements. It is not only the largest logo in common circulation but it also glows when the machine is on. As a private company Apple can do as it pleases, but shouldn't we as users (whether we chose Apple ourselves or had the decision made for us by work) put just a little pressure on Apple to curb this level of advertising with their customers? Looking over an office or a study hall, the Apple logo is always the obvious one where most other brands are discrete in a way that doesn't insinuate the users affirmation of the manufacturer. Also, it's ugly. Otherwise my issue could be at least partially resolved by slapping a sticker on there. Let's tell Apple to drop that huge thing for the sake of good design as well.
