Here’s a Macbook air I laser etched the other night, a couple people asked me if it was possible and the answer is yes… the settings are the same (100 power / 100 speed, depending on your laser) and you’ll need a few 1/4″ “jacks” underneath the front of the Macbook air to make it level – that’s pretty much it.

    Of course it can be laser etched, just like all the other laptops that have been laser etched.

    Really, this post isn’t about hacks, but about “ooh look I got a macbook air”

    @nickjohnson – no, this isn’t my macbook air (i don’t have one). materials *do* change and this laptop as at an angle and needs a specific height adjustment.

    someone will find it useful who has a laser cutter, in fact a maker already emailed me.

    Does anyone have a template for masking out the air for engraving? Or know where to get one?
