Laser etched MacBook Pro
UK-based technology site Geekanoids has completed its project to create a laser etched MacBook Pro, coated in sponsor logos, for use in video product reviews and demonstrations. Money from the companies whose logos are etched provided funding for purchase of the Santa Rosa chipset-based 15.4" MacBook Pro. The laser etching was performed by Razorlab, based in London, UK. Geekanoids editors said "The whole process was a joy to experience, and with (Razorlab's) attention to detail, the end result really looks fantastic. When viewed in dull light, the etching appears as a light grey, and when caught at an angle by artificial light or sunlight, it appears to light up as a vibrant white finish." The site has posted an 8-minute video depicting the etching process from start to finish.
