    I've had an idea bouncing around in my head about turning my Poly Unibody Macbook into a sort of Super Stealth Macbook like this one: http://www.colorwarepc.com/p-183-stealth-macbook-pro.aspx

    Sending the Macbook to Colorware to be painted Jet Black is the easy part. That leaves only two problems:

    • Giving my Unibody Macbook a Backlit Keyboard
    • Painting my trackpad black

    Any ideas how this can be done? Can it even be done?

    The main logic board in your MacBook does not have a power outlet for the backlit keyboard. I think it's pretty unlikely that anyone will ever come up with a way to retrofit a backlit keyboard onto your computer.

    Don't know about painting the trackpad. Good luck!
