    Hey everyone, just wondering if you think there would be any adverse effects if I painted my touchpad? Any ideas?

    If they can do it, I can do it, lol! :) I don't see why it would hurt it. If I do it, I'll let you know how it turns out...

    Um, I dont think it will work. If you try making your touchpad go with something other than your hand, it wont go. I think putting a layer of paint on there will wreck it.

    Painting the touchpad would most likely make it less sensitive. It might not work quite as well.

    Yeah, let us know...I imagine it recalibrates when the computer is restarted but there's only one way to find out.

    Voodoo doesn't on all their machines only some, and they know what they're doing if your going to practice first anyway you can and as much as you can. Also if it matches the keyboard which I assume it does I don't see the point.

    Actually my touch pad does not match my keyboard. I think I opted out of painting it this time around. I picked up this really awesome dark metallic grey color. Unfortunately, I tested it and it actually is a textured paint. So for now, I will just be painting the white trim on my i6000, but maybe the lid with the textured paint.
