Just seen this on eBay not cheap as it's double the price of the standard iMac!

so basically this guys importing colorware products from the US, see www.colorwarepc.com

I bought my girlfriends iPod from them last october in 'caution' aka bright yellow, the workmanship is astonishing, although I would personally only but from colorware directly. As far as I'm aware they don't seem to have a uk ebay site and they are more than happy to ship to the uk.

Should we worry that this person also has adobe "photoshop illustartaer cs2" for sale for "mac or windows £24"

Buy direct from colorwarepc.com, I cant reccomend them enough, they're amazing and the prices are VERY reasonable, especially compared with this ebay seller.

ColorWare is only a 2 hour drive from me. Been to that area, but not to see them. They do a good job, but sometimes they cut corners, like painting the slot-load on the Mini... right on the felt dust cover.

The iMacs they have are nice though. A 24" black one would be nice to watch movies and TV on.

Especially if you are watching the videos in the dark. A black unit would just help hide itself more.

Honestly, I don't know. I do know they put a special clear coat that is to be scratch resistant. It is a special compound made with them and some chemical company.

i would hope so
wouldn't be surprised if it's just spray bombed and clear coated though
since the photos of the colours are just photoshopped, and the seller doesn't give any information on how they're made, it's impossible to tell
