    Before you picket me with pitchforks and torches, here me out. :p

    My brother wants to find a way to hide the Apple logo on my MacBook Pro because 1. He takes his laptop to classes where all the lights are turned off and the logo on the back is too bright and 2. He just doesn't want a glowing fruit on the back of his laptop.

    Any creative ways to hide the Apple Logo instead of just putting a sticker on it?

    If you're feeling particularly DIY-ish, disassemble the LCD housing and put something thing and opaque in front of the apple cutout.

    Have either of you ever tried to disassemble a Macbook's lid? Bad idea.

    Tried, yes. Succeeded, somewhat. Didn't fix what I wanted, but was able to reassemble the damn thing. It's an ugly mess in there, but it's sort of an option.

    Prevention is the best cure :D

    Don't buy an apple.

    Side effects include: saving money, faster hardware, more software choices
