I would like to hide the glowing Apple logo on the backside of my MacBook Pro.

I'm looking for a simple silver colored sticker. And I don't want to add any message or other brand or art on my laptop.

Is there any unobtrusive sticker available?

The logo is easily covered by whatever 3" round vinyl sticker you choose. –  bmike Feb 6 '12 at 16:56
    
@bmike where do I get an unobtrusive silver colored (aluminum) sticker? –  powtac Feb 6 '12 at 16:57

Any sticker will be obtrusive it's is aim is to just mask the Apple logo. Without you get something to cover the whole rear panel your sticker be as obvious as the logo it's trying to replace, and will probably look a lot worse as there will be some light bleeding through the vinyl unless it's a serious thick sticker, which will then catch on things and have edge-peel issues etc.

Search on Amazon for Macbook and Gelaskins for an idea for covering the whole rear, this is an example: enter image description here

If you want something smaller, you can use something to take the edge off it by highlighting it in a way that marginally masks it:

What are you trying to remove, the sheer "apple-ness" of it, or just the glow? For instance would a plain apple sticker of identical dimensions used to blackout the backlight be good? If you want silver, then having subtle might be hard, as it's liable to clash horribly with the aluminium colour/texture unless you are lucky –  stuffe Feb 6 '12 at 14:41

I want to remove sheer "apple-ness". And I'm looking already for a long time for a solution unluckily. –  powtac Feb 6 '12 at 14:50

If you do this, I think Steve will haunt you. –  james.garriss Feb 6 '12 at 15:12
    
@powtac - on the same note: have you considered a case for your MBP? Like: amazon.com/Premium-Quality-Leather-SmackTom-Packaging/dp/… –  Vlad Feb 6 '12 at 15:21
