How's this for customization?

Computer modder Eddie Zarick has tricked out the Apple logo on the back of a MacBook with a fully functional secondary LCD display that can be used to make the Mac all glowy and psychedelic and stuff. You can, for example, use the lit-up logo to showcase cool images or video or run the iTunes Visualizer.

Watch the video below to see the striking effects, and if that isn't enough for you, you can bid for the 13-inch used computer on eBay, where, as of this writing Sunday night, 14 bids had been placed, and it was going for $1,325.

If bidding starts to surpass the realm of the rational (which it surely will), no worries: Zarick says he is now renting out his MacBook logo-modding skills for $500. He also promises to post a tutorial soon.
