Depending on your taste, this might either be downright silly or pure genius. Let me know which category this falls under!
I recently got myself the Speck SeeThru case for the 17″ MacBook Pro and proceeded to place stickers of my favorite Web 2.0 services and personal credentials sandwiched between the MBP’s lid and the clear casing. No permanent sticking involved.
I know this isn’t as gutsy as pasting the darn stickers on the lid, but I just want to give it a few more months before I declare my new machine ready for a refreshed look. There were two problems I faced while living with this though…
First, the Speck SeeThru case prevents your MBP’s lid from opening all the way, so when I had it on my Logitech Alto Notebook Stand & Keyboard, it faced downwards (Urgh!). OK fine, I’ll just prop it up with something else. Then when I tried to carry my 17″ MBP in my Incase Nylon Sleeve, it wouldn’t fit! That was the last straw; I wasn’t going to sacrifice functionality for aesthetic, so back to Amazon this Speck case goes. Oh well. :/
