I would very much like a black or red backcover though, never liked the silver one I've got on my XPS.
The XPS logos on the lid of the laptop are clear plastic that have 3 clear leds each per logo (6 total). Each led is capable of displaying a certain color palatte. That of which we have seen.
The kicker? If dell was SMART - they would drop the xps logos (either keep them or make them unlighted) and use the same plastic for the metal part, but clear with LEDS on each end. So, as the system is controlled, the entire silver area (would be clear now) would light up whatever color you set in the quickset.
Would it be hard to do? Nope. Not at all. All the electronics are there already. They just need to add the clear backing that would allow the color change leds to light it up!
Then again, dell isn't smart.
