We've already had a black box though (LW 4.0) my vote is probably with that Pepsi blue for this release.

(Although a totally matte black box with silver LW logo and title embossed and emphasized in gloss would rock...)

I loved the gate-fold velcroed front panel on 4.0 as well - bring that back! Too cool Jules :D

Heh! I'm such a sucker for slick marketing...

I think the CIM one is just the greatest...

The silver-metal one that is around here is my favourite really.

man that's funny!!!

Now, this may sound crazy, but how about a BRUSHED METAL color scheme to the box!?

better idea...

A black box.....all black....with a black logo and black words, like that Spinal Tap album "Smell the Glove."

It could be a sort of hommage to one of the great metal bands of all time. The bonus material on the CD could include models of all the band members (including all 27 drummers and particle effects to animate their spontaneous combustion).

I gotta say, including a color manual would be SOOO cool! Heh, 200 line screen with varnish.

Lots of companies have gone the way of PDF or online manuals to save on printing and shipping costs. I wonder if Newtek will follow suit.

I hope not....the idea of reading THAT much in an online manual is unpleasant. I prefer to read books in book format.

A nice cool looking metallic blue, pastel / almost white - that would look neat. If only I could show the image I'm seeing in my mind's eye ;)
