I would take it apart. You will get a much nicer job. I took apart my 540c when I painted it. It was much easier to give it a two-toned paint job that way.

For the info of others readin

For the info of others reading this: it's dang near impossible to tape up a laptop well enough to paint without some disassembly. If you miss one vent, you might get paint inside the machine and ruin your optical drive, or get paint on the cooling fins, or cause the cooling fan to stick. It's just so much better on the machine and leads to a nicer looking paint job to disassemble a laptop for painting. Never forget the law on unintended consequences when trying to go for a shortcut, and only costing yourself more time later, or even ending up with a ruined project just to save the hour or two that it might have taken to dis and reassemble the thing.

Lord Nikon?

Hey,

The clear plastic laptop is a Duo as is Jolie's laptop (and listen for the pun "risc is good). Don't know the others.
