I've always thought that those areas missing the anodising in the inside were cause by the battery hitting it slightly when the board is slided in and out of the case but I guess I was wrong.
Anyway good to hear your offering the case as a separate item. How about the front and back panel, Are those going to be available too?
Ah that's good to hear. I figured it might be a clamp of some sort since the bare spots are similar in size and shape.
Yeah I'm curious too. Black looks mighty fancy:
@ jseaber again
Is the bright-dipping technique adding a gloss finish to the anodised aluminum or does it still have the "chalkboard" texture? I was actually going to write on my review of the C5 that its texture reminds me of a chalkboard, and I really like that feeling, hahaha.
^ both images were from JDS Labs aluminium blog entry
The red bright-dipped C5 in particular reminds me of the Product Red line of Apple products in-person (online photos make the products look brighter than they actually are).
