I ordered a decal from decalgirl.com and just got it today.

It was surprisingly easy to apply. The instructions say to have a friend help apply the main decal on the lid of the mini to make sure it's even, but doing it yourself isn't too difficult.

The surprising thing is that it has overlays around the keyboard, and it goes over the trackpad too. Doesn't seem to affect the trackpad use.

The vinyl doesn't show fingerprints like the glossy finish of the lid did.

Those of you who installed OSX, you just have to get a skin (this site or another) to further impress people...

Ok as your first post on the forum I'd say its borderline spam, but those are some pretty awesome skins...

which is why I specifically put in the line about "from this or another site"

I tried to make it a simple post with a review that also commented on the product as there's not a whole lot of info on their site and the idea of the vinyl going over the trackpad seemed odd to me (how would that work!).

The vinyl over the trackpad works fine - I have had a skin like that from 3acp.com for several months now. It's a capacitive sensing system.

They dont cover the lid completely they leave a border around the edge so you would still see the red... Its a shame
