    Can I color the apple logo?
    I've seen this done on many macbooks but I can't find how to do it on my spring 2009 macbook (aluminum uni-body). Can it be done?

    It's next to impossible on the unibody designs. With the plastic MacBook it's a simple task of removing the plastic top and taping a colored piece of thin paper underneath the logo.

    Is it not the same procedure for the unibodys just slightly more involved taking the glass off?

    Also people make stickers to put on the outside.

    Yes that is a grizzlycorn

    You have to take the glass off the front and remove the entire LCD assembly just to reach the logo. I should rephrase my original statement to it being next to impossible for the average user. It's not quite as daunting a task with the plastic Macbooks.

    With the plastic ones dont you still have to remove the LCD? I actually like removing the glass better because it alway goes back on nicely unlike the plastic.

    I'd say if you're really good about staying within the lines when you're coloring, a Sharpie ought to do the trick.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
