Has anyone actually sent their powerbook away and had this done?

Geez, I was just curious. I doubt I would ever do it but some people have more money than brains sometimes.

Come on though, a Ferrari red Powerbook would be pretty cool to look at right?

Value is subjective. Most crave power, some crave design.

Wow, a bright blue Powerbook, almost like an ugly Dell.

Alu Powerbooks have a beautiful fininsh, anyone runining it with this kiddie paint, should use the $400 USD to get their head checked instead.

Hehe, all I could maybe tolerate is Carbon (black). I'd send mine to Klien Bikes before I'd send it to these newcomers.

And seeing as my old TiBook and Klien Mantra are all scratched up I'll pass. Aluminum is soo sweet.
If a group of mimes are miming a forest and one falls down, does he make a sound?

Still, it's a way to make your powerbook even more exclusive, but with someone else's logo on you powerbook, it's an advertisement for someone that's not you.

I painted my powerbook Ti 500 once. The result was extremely ugly, but at least it was mine
