My best friend is getting the new iMac on Tuesday and giving me his 'old' white 24inch iMac. I love the computer but the white plastic still leaves me a little cold. I was thinking of painting it or maybe wood contact paper or foil. Does anyone have any pics of some cool mods? I found this look that I love but I don't know if it's really a good idea!


I love the U.S., but we need some time apart.

That's what I was thinking. I sort of actually like it, but I doubt that that's good for cooling or longevity.

I think that could be a cool idea, but I for the life of could not send my mac in for a paint job, of course I also wouldn't be caught dead modding my Mac either, so there you have it.
