    laptop skins
    hi,
    i'm looking for a laptop skin for my black 13 inch macbook and very hard to find one that size,most seem to be bigger, saw a twilight one on amazon which goes up to 15 inches, would that be too big?

    I dont know what you would call mine, but I bought a see-thru black satin "hardshell" case. Really nice, I thought it was gonna be bulky but its not. It hugs the MBP really well and it doesnt feel like a hardshell. I recommend it.

    But I guess you want a decorated one? No idea, but Ive seen quite a few on amazon for 13" MBP

    Don't believe anything I tell you, unless it is consistent with what you already know to be true, or unless you have taken the time to research the matter to prove its accuracy to your satisfaction. This is known as "doing your homework."

    See if there's a local printing shop or t-shirt store in town who can do vinyl stickers.

    I had one made for my MBP and it's great.

    Exactly how did you go about this? Did you make the design yourself (through photoshop?) and then tell the printing company your laptop dimensions? I like the idea of having one big sticker that is pretty "tough" and will cover the lid completely compared to having a bulky, thick plastic cover.

    Thanks

    I just went into the store with my laptop and told them the design I wanted and they found one online. It was a very basic design so it is something they could get online easily.

    I don't have one on my MacBook because I don't feel that I need one, but I had one on my old Dell and my iPhone 3G.

    I very highly recommend them, and you can upload an image of your choosing

    I got my macbook 13 skin at styleflip.com. They definitely have your model and you can customized your laptop right on their website plus they ship worldwide. Checkout them out, my laptop skin was only $14.95. That's cheaper than the other sites and they offer the inside with the keyboard skins as well.
