I bought it through PC Torque, and at the time they had ColorWare doing the painting. Obviously (if you scan through the threads on this subject) there was a "falling out" between the two companies, and no more custom colors are offered by PC Torque.
There is a VERY valid reason for this (dealing with Warranty voids and such), so the feeling I'm getting in today's climate is: custom-color buyer beware. I do not want to speak negatively of ColorWare, as I've not had to deal with them directly at this point (and hope I never do: that would mean a hassle-free laptop life-span!). However, be very concious about the Warranty coverage and honoring when dealing with ANY custom-colored laptop, for obvious reasons.
Best of luck,
