    Hey Folks,

    In a desperate move to make my new 15'' MBP Unibody a little more personal, I was thinking about changing the color of the apple logo behind the screen. I have a friend who did it on an old MacBook, and it looks great.

    I searched around the web for a guide on various DYI tips on this subject, but most of them were only for the older models. Even iFixit - who by the way disassembled their MBP - didn't show how to open the screen and get access behind the Apple logo.

    Does anybody have an idea how to do this ? Or maybe a link to a guide ?

    Again, it has to be for the newest 15'' MBP (october 08).

    Thanks !

    The display is not designed to be opened. Someone tried to open up the display on their unibody Macbook and the glass broke.

    Ouch. I can't imagine the sick feeling they must have gotten when they heard that crack and looked at the screen.
