Since LCD monitors let light out of the back of them, apple decided to use this light to light up the apple logo.
I figured my lonely eeeMac needed a glowing apple.
I cut one out of an old Lombard mac I had laying around (I like the term donor mac) .
the process was simple but accurate. I picked the location for the new apple. After tracing the apple inset from the lombard and trying to cut it, it became clear the plastic of the eee was too thick and too hard to accurately cut for the logo. Instead I decided to cut a square from the cover of the lombard that contained the apple logo. I cut that out with a blind saw (a japanese one) and I cut out the space in the back of the eee carefully with a drill and a nibbler.
I had to position the logo a little high because only parts of the back of the LCD lighted up in a way that was useful. I might have gotten it a little too high as the tip of the apple leaf does not light well.
