TiPaint is for Apple G4 Powerbook owners like me who have blemishes on thier baby's sleek exteriors. I dunno that the fact this product exsits is good or sad, but I know I just bought some and can't wait for it to show up. At least it's not terribly expensive.

ugh, these people need to remember to set the bgcolor attribute of the body tag.

Vanity, thy name is Macolyte. Wassamatter with you people? Got a scratch? Enlarge it with an icepick, rub tar into it, and embellish with a puff of blood-red Krylon. Dat's da juice from da PC body shop.

from what i've read elsewhere, people are not rating this product too highly....

As long as the iBook keeps functioning normally and none of those nasty chips work their way into anything vital, I wouldn't give a hoot if the exterior looked as if it had leprosy.

And I have the Ford pickup truck to prove it.

I like to paint on my computers, but not touch up paint. I favor acrylic & markers, cut up newpaper, and scratches with an exacto knife.

It gives you that "mad max" computing feel. (Ooh, maybe I should get some black shoulder pads and a pony tail for my G4 :)

I've heard that the paint is actually off a shade or two.

Is this something to consider? : Apple's One Year Limited Warranty states the warranty does not apply "(c) to a product or a part that has been modified without the written permission of Apple."

Yet TiPaint's site (among others) states the chipping is a design flaw.

I have a friend who knowingly voided his warranty by placing a colored gel into the top of his iBook; are Powerbook users unknowingly voiding their warranty by performing touch-ups?

(or maybe I just don't know what the hell I'm talking about)

And would that make the Apple warranty the worst ever?
