I don't know, I guess I didn't think of them being plastic. My sister's laptop has a crabon fiber looking cover on hers so I didn't know it was plastic. I'm dumb! Shocked


I was not trying to insinuate that you are dumb, I hope you did not take my question that way. I guess that I was just trying to point out that metal notebooks like the PowerBook are the rare exception, not the norm.

Has anyone tried putting 3M translucent film on an iBook to protect it. It works well on motorcycles without making them look ugly. If you scratch up the film you can peel it off and replace it.


I have a PowerBook, so I have no experience with the iBook. Radtech makes this Ice Cream stuff that is supposed to remove scratches from iPods and Ibooks.

Ironically, the "plastic" casing iBook is much more of a durable machine than the metal cased powerbooks (be it Ti or Al). My TiBook is flaking really bad too!
