    If you have some extra $ lying around and you want to make your iPad more unique, ColorWare may be the answer. They will give your iPad a custom paint job. A little too pricey for me, but still cool.

    Design your custom paint job here.

    I like the look of my IPad, I could not paint it. I just would not trust that.

    only $400....LOL.

    Painting aluminum doesn't seem very smart does it?

    Do they replace the body or just paint it? What kind of paint wouldn't chip off....and doesn't it take like 4 weeks to get it back?

    Prepwork is the secret to painting metal. And then a protective finish like a clear polyurethane to coat it all helps keep it unscathed. But you still have to care for it like any car finish. A little wax maybe!:D

    What do you think they make planes out of? Or mountain bikes? Or Coke cans?

    yeah but those are done to parts pre-assembly? Is this company going to take the iPad apart and then put it back together? Do they guarantee your iPad?

    I'd have a tough time justifying that to myself based on the price alone. Maybe Apple will offer different colored iPads OTB eventually.

    The only thought that comes to mind is "WHY"?

    I think it is beautiful. I would totally do it if the price was not so prohibitive and I did not have two burning concerns.

    1. The Ipad's Warranty
    2. Transmission of wireless signal

    Oh yeah,

    For those that don't get then it was not meant for you. Don't crap on the idea or the concept that different people like different things. Image is big to me, not $400.00 big, but important none the less. I live in Miami where everyone drives $100,000 dollar cars even if they work at McDonalds. :D

    Don't hate because we also have the hottest women. I digress
