It would be textured shades of gray, though you could make it darker with subsequent dying.It would look like concrete or marble... depending on the condition of the plastic. The somewhat organic finish which comes with these dye jobs is interesting and aesthetic... moreso than painting, I think.

Just to mention, you can also dye the battery cover. It's held on by a strip of double-sided adhesive, like two-sided tape, but much, much stronger. You'll want to use something wide and flat to fit between the cover and battery and gradually pry it off. It really doesn't take much work at all.

Somewhere in Philadelphia, there's a guy walking around with what used to be my red iBook G4 ;D
