    Very nice - especially with the air/dry brushing. I thought it was odd that the insides of the laptop didn't warrant a mod, but it makes sense.

    Is the competition to win the laptop?

    Weirdly, the placement of the skulls remind me of the Brady Bunch :)

    Great mod, could've done without the LEDS in my opinion... I like the less sparkly look. But thats just my opinion.

    Wish I had the skill to perform such a mod to my laptop...

    We decided to leave the innards alone so that we'd still be sure of a functional laptop at the end of it all to give away in the competition, enter below:

    Glad you like it on the whole, I'll be checking this thread so if anyone has any questions (on the lappy rather than the modding side) please ask away!

    Kind regards,
    Alasdair

    Awesome mod, nice and effective, not OTT.

    Entered the compo, I think i'll cry tears of joy if I win a macro modded laptop :D

    True. I suppose you don't want to be scaring yourself, rather those sitting around you whilst using it! The photo on the competition page shows off the LEDs well.

    Doubt I'll win (ever the optimist me :) ), but I entered anyway.

    I'm just curious about the one skull that seems to have something bulging from one eye socket. Was this intentional, or just unfortunate glue leakage?

    Other than that... :thumb:

    Well spotted :D. It was deliberate, I was going to do a few more but decided that just one bulging eye was well, unique. :dremel:

    Had my doubts at first, but that turned out really nice in the end.
