I think the second one looks good.
This one is my favorite.
This is a neat technique for personalization, although you can say goodbye to resale value.

I love that painting!
I think this looks really good! And since I never plan on selling my PB...
I wonder how "strong" it is though.. I bet it looks ****** half rubbed off.
Wow, I could not bring myself to having that done to my PowerBook (if I had one ).
My thoughts exactly.
Although, if you really, really wanted a laptop that stands out- this seems to be a good way to go!
Why oh why would anyone deface a beautiful notebook like that?
It's really defacement?
A boring silver face is beautiful?
How many PowerBooks do these people have??
The plum blossoms look neat, though.
The NeXt logo.. not so much.
I agree... perfect for the wanky designer like myself.
Though I do have to say, the whole vector outline thing is everyf**kin'where in design at the moment.
I buy apple of the tight design, wouldn't screw it up with something like this...
I'd get something like that done to the Powerbook I will one day own. It would probably take me ages to choose a design though, I'd want something very cool.
The extent of my PowerBook personalization has been putting stamps from places I have travelled with my PB. So far, I've covered 1/4 of the lid.
Makes a nice memento. A little rubbing alcohol should clean it up nicely should I decide to sell.

Why the bad comments, people? There was some guy on AF who had a Chinese dragon on his (that was about to eat the apple ), which I thought was übercool. But, then again, I'm the guy who's planning on buying an IceBook just to do a custom paint job
You think so? (he asks, hiding the piece of vector artwork he is working on behind another window...)
If doing something like that did not cost a whole heap of money for a poor college student like myself then I would totally do it
Perhaps I can get my PB repainted a nice metallic red..
i still haven't got my powerbook delivered and i want to do that to it!!!!!!!!!
where? how? how long does it take?
My girlfriend was looking into it for a while for her 15" PB. Her family is irish and she wanted to get a celtic knot pattern all around the apple symbol. She found a picture on the web that was really cool and the guys who do this were very helpful and worked with her for a while, but in the end she didn't do it. She couldn't justify the cost, for the pattern she picked it would have cost over $200 dollars. The cost all depends on the intricacy and size of the pattern you want etched. She might end up doing it some day, but as we are both in college and don't have a ton of money, it wasn't worth it at the moment.
And just to clear things up for some people, it is not actually printed on the PB case, they take a thousands of an inch of aluminum off the casing so there is no worry of the pattern "rubbing off".
Eh, I think the PBs look incredible as is and wouldn't get this done on my own. But it seems like nowadays, it's all the rage to set yourself apart somehow... and there are tackier ways to go about it than an elegant laser etching on your PB.
The blossoms are quite pretty.
I want to have sakura flowers on my powerbook T____T
I think this is really cool. Kinda like a tattoo. Its art.
does anyone know who does it and where?
is there anything like that in the uk?
come on guys, tell me!!
Pretty awesome although I couldnt do it because I don't have a powerbook.
