First, when my eMac is asleep or seldom turned off there is a very nice cover with gold embroidery over the screen. This keeps out dust and improves the atmosphere in the room. I would not jeapordize the three year warrantee on this fine equipment by tearing it apart to paint it. If you think you can paint it while it is together, I think you are fooling yourself. Second when I look at the screen the only thing other than the white boarder is a small blue bug with google eyes pasted on the light beside the DVD-R CDRW door which cuts glare and hopefully is the only bug on my computer. I chose to put all my money into software and equipment, my next buy will be speakers. I am not critcizing others who would void their warrantees, just giving my opinion.
