Tutorial up on making a MacBook LCD logo

MacBook modder hit is now available as do-it-yourself online tutorial.

Not too long ago, we told you about modder Eddie Zarick, who turned his MacBook logo into a psychedelic LCD display.

The modification video, which as of this writing has 394,703 views on YouTube, now has a complementary online tutorial with detailed instructions available for do-it-yourself modders.

You'll need to be quite a handy person to complete the tutorial, knowing soldering and being able to dismantle a computer and a LCD. Also, you will lose one USB port in addition to losing the warranty.

If the tutorial is too tricky for you, you can still bid for Eddie's modified MacBook on eBay. The highest bidder in the last auction didn't follow through on payment, according to Zarick's page.
