    I plan on painting my macbook when it comes in but I want to have a spare shell for warranty stuff.

    Or can the shell even be removed completely?:confused:

    Last I knew Apple was gluing the batteries to the shell so removal would be tedious at best and more than Likely impossible.

    What a bummer. :eek: Apparently I might shear the trackpad cable trying to get the battery out. I guess I'll have to just get a crappy snap on cover like everybody else.

    Oh well thanks for the heads up :D
