Thread: White Macbook into a Black one???

    Default White Macbook into a Black one???
    Hi Guys, I have a white macbook from 2007 with the following specs:

    CPU- Intel Core2Duo 2.0GHZ
    Memory- 2GB
    HDD- 160GB
    OS- Leopard: 140GB, Windows XP: 20GB

    I was just wondering if it is possible to make my white macbook look like a black one, keeping the apple logo visible when lit up?

    Hi, You could in theory replace the white keys with black but you would have to get a silver vinyl for the wrist wrest and black vinyle bezel then you would have it looking like a unibody.

    Hmmm, wasn't thinking i would go to that level of awesomeness!!! :-)

    What about skins?

    Anybody got a black one that you can still see the apple logo through?

    Well, if you were going to go really cheap how about Black Vinyl skins but wrapped in Carbon Fiber I did this with an old Compaq N800c. I went to Autozone and bought 2 roles of Carbon Fiber in black and patiently cleaned and applied the carbon fiber. You will need a hair dryer to encase the corners. Caution-the carbon fiber adhesive will leave a terrible residue if you try to remove it. Results made it look like a stealth laptop!
