Okay here's the thing I'm about to order an M15x online but I'm being asked to select an alien fx colour dose this mean I'm going to be stuck with the one colour or is this just the out of the box configuration?? also I cant seem to find the option to customise the nameplate and am really hoping that living in Australia is going to prevent me from adding this nice 'lil touch to my new system.
Not sure about the nameplate but the color can be changed easily later. Same with the backgrounds and the avatar you choose, the rest are available in Windows too.

No, I worried about that as-well, but that just means the color it will display when it comes, once you get you're system you get a program called FX that you can get into and make it display a plethora of colors. ENJOY!
