    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?
