Hey guys,

I saw a great picture on the internet, last week.
And a think it's really cool to have it on my own mbp.
but does anybody know's where you can buy, foli in another color, like blue.
I all ready search on the internet, but doen't know the exactly name of the foli.
See the picture for what I mean.

Johannes Luderschmidt’s Blog Blog Archive MBP Keyboard Assembly: Backlight illumination with FTIR, explanation about the backlight.

Thanks in advanced

It doesn't get that hot so i don't see why you should use some special foil.

Could be, but I do not know. That is why I ask,
because I do not like to carry out actions which I do not understand
