Does anyone know if it is possible to do the icolours.ca mod of the apple logo on the front of the mac for the aluminum macbook pros? On the website it says it isn't currently supported. I wanted to change it to the old school multicolor logo.

Hmm...

I was just thinking about this the other night when I saw a picture of something similar. I don't think you can actually change the color of it through the computer, but I'd be willing to be that you can find clear stickers out there that change it that way.

I'll let the experts chime in on this I'm still kinda a mac newbe

By through the computer do you mean a setting? I know you can't that way, but on older ones you can insert a piece of tinted plastic. I've also seen stickers, which I might do. The insert is just so much more legit.

I didn't even think of inserts!

Wouldn't that mean having to take off the the lid cover to get in there though? Not sure I want to mess with that on my part here lol.

I like the sticker idea(red one) , taking apart a uni screen is not something that would be worth it IMO.

The screen isn't unibody. There is a seem between the aluminum back and the black outline of the screen. I would assume that it is possible, if not simply because of the fact that they had to get it on there someone, I'm sure you could take it off. I just don't want to be the guinea pig for it, since I'm in highschool and spent a huge chunk of my savings on it.

If you wanted the old school Apple logo, they have stickers available in that design. I really do not think taking apart a uMBP is a good idea.

I know they have stickers, I guess I'll resort to that. I just like how the insert looks more clean. Has anyone used the stickers? I'm wondering if the light still shines through at all.

I definitely agree with you on the clean look. I can search around see if it's possible, or if it's safe to do so,
