Just out of curiosity, why do you not like the logo?
I mean, it IS an Apple. What do you expect them to do?
It's not a matter of expectation, it's a matter of this situation exists, how do I change it?
I don't particurlarly want this to turn into a debate on the merits of Apple's design. I started this thread because I'm interested in altering the design. You don't have to agree with me on this, really.
As I said I think it's garish (look the word up); I have no interest in walking around as Apple's personal billboard.
If you don't like the logo that much, get the white one.
If you don't like the white one, get the silver one.
If you can't stand the silver one, then it's time to
consider not buying a Mac.
Just to clarify, I'm only interested in ideas on how to make the logo on the black machine less prominent, thanks. I've already explained why I want the black machine.
I'd imagine the only way to get rid of it, would be to cover it up in some way. You could carefully cut out some card, use acrylic paint, whatever you fancy. Clearly there is no 'official' way of getting rid of it. I'd hazard a guess though, that virtually anything you may try will have the effect of making your Macbook cover look like an 8 year old childs art project.
Good luck, and I'd love to see photos of the end result.

Yeah that's what I suspect would happen too, which is why I was hoping I'd be able to get to the underside of the clear plastic instead.
To cover it with a coating of some kind I think would mean careful preparation to a get a good key, the selection of a suitable paint coating and good masking skills. I've probably got the preparation and masking skills down, I just don't know which coating would suit.
Has anyone had a go at making the Apple logo black or charcoal on the black
MacBook? I'm thinking about getting the black model because the matte
finish looks a little more durable but the garish looking white logo is a put off.
Wow this is the first post stating that they didn't like the white apple on the black mac. Different strokes for different folks.
The white macbook's logo (white on white) is probably less noticable as there's less contrast. There is no way to dim the logo as its lit from the lcd back light.
I believe the white MB's enclosure is more durable and less likely to show abuse. I compared both side by side and I thought the white was better in that respect. I love the black one and how it looks but the durable finish was one of my major points that I wanted a MB for.

I compared the glossy white and matte black in the store and the white ones were already looking worn out due to way the glossy finish shows up scratches more readily than the matte finish. The black machines were taking a betting and still looking, well, matte. Quite how you conclude a glossy finish to be more durable than a matte finish is beyond me.

Well some of us aren't Apple fanboys and just like a computer for its function. The garish logo on the black MacBook would provide absolutely no function for me. I'd actually prefer no logo at all but that isn't an option.
Frankly I'd find it kind of embarrassing walking around like a billboard.
