Teardown to color MacBook
I have a macbook mid-2010 model and now I was thinking about ring an extra touch! I've seen some reviews of people who disassembled an older macbook model so they could paint it (http://walyou.com/diy-color-macbook/ ). Is this possible with my macbook to? Can't find a complete tear down of the mid 2010 model so I'm asking you guys :-)
Thanks in advance!

I've heard (and seen) people doing all sorts of things to personalize their systems.
Painting is not the best way on the aluminum bodies as it has a tendency to chip unless you sand down the surfaces (which will ruin the systems value), using an epoxy paint (masking the areas).
I would recommend using the snap-on body skins or self-adhesive body wraps that are for sale as the best and won't hurt the systems value.
I did see a beautiful engraving done by a tattoo artist. A painter I know used markers to illustrate his cover and then place a clear cover over it to protect it.
Sure, if you really want something unique you could strip your system down and have the case anodized. But, its a lot of work and you may end up having to replace a few parts as they may not come off cleanly. I haven't heard of anyone going that far.
