We are testing a new option we expect to have available in the next few days. We expect to be able to do your basic colors along with others. Right now we have done Blue, Green and Red. We figured we would show you what we have done so far and let us know your input. :) We hope to add many other colors along with Rainbow to our configurators soon.

Too bad there is no option for the sagers on this/ I would get red.

What would rainbow entail? Multi colored? Or color changing?

Are these mods to the existing systems, or is this a software configuration like on the Alienware machines?

Ok, that looks awesome. Any chance you guys can upload the default white for a comparison?

Thanku Justin, i sent u a message yesterday about this. U read my mind, i wanted to see them in pictures to see what they looked like. Gonna go with..... Blue i think, even though red is my favorite color, we will see.

But it would be cool if u could have multiple colors on and be able to change them at will like what Alienware has for their Mx's laptops. Still cool though.

Definitely sweet, especially the green. Makes me want to wait on the new G73 instead of getting the GX660R.

Looking stylish, Justin. When can we expect to see the other colors being offered? I'd like to see what yellow and rainbow would look like before I make my final decision. (I'm leaning towards blue, but I'm curious.)

I agree, it'd be great to see how the options look

I noticed tht u added the American Flag to the keyboard colors. I wanna see a pic of tht! But im guessing tht Colbat Blue is still the same blue from the pic, tht u just gave it a more fancy name lol.

Can't wait to see your other options! :D RAINBOW! WOO! Haha.

Can we by chance order a... DARE I SAY IT.... DOUBLE RAINBOW? All the way!

Anyway and once again, Good Job, XoticPC!

Im guessing this is what the American Flag light mod will look like:

I like the USA Flag with the white accents. It'd be cool if they could do the white accents and other keys in white while the rest is one color?

Does anyone have a picture of the yellow backlit? I'm trying to decide and just can't seem to pick a color.

Does the color mod replace the LED's or is it some kind of colored filter? If it is a colored filter are there any heat issues?

It's most likely a color filter. Using color filters won't give any heat issues except maybe melting it if it gets too hot but I'm pretty sure XoticPC uses more expensive heat resistant ones seeing as they know these are gaming laptops.

Gotcha, thank you for the info! John
