    Here's some mods I made to the aesthetics of my white book.

    I'd love black keys and a black gloss bezle!

    What you guys think?

    I can find topcases, but if you notice my return key is different and I cant find one the same as mine in black!!!

    I used to have a red macstyle on the topcase but removal for replacement of a new one left it fubard with glue transfer - 200 bucks to fix it so I'll stick with the red apple for now -

    you think the black keys would look good? bezel thoughts?

    Great job! I've been wanting to change the keyboard keys on my BlackBook to the keys on the Apple Wireless BlueTooth keyboard, but I am too scared that I would "break something" hence voiding the warranty.

    I was thinking a black bezel would work to help out the balance... but I'd want it to be glossy :(
