seems they just released it recently ,but do you really think it's needed for mini? mini is just so mini!
nice to have, but seems to be less cosmetic and protective bang-for-buck compared to top cover skin. i personally wouldn't spend the $, because i don't think i would damage the wrist pad area like i might the top cover, and cosmetically, it's not worth the $10 + shipping to me. but if it were free, i'd take it!

They also sell a variety of top skins in unique designs. Some who bought the skins earlier complained, reasonably so, that the picture on the site showed a wrist panel skin too, but the shipped cover did not include it. I note that they offer the wrist skin in black only, whereas the lid skins are varied such as carbon fiber look, leather look, etc.

What SGP/Cretouch doesn't sell (and what I need) are skins for Mini 10's. I have ordered one for for an Inspiron 15 and have asked them to cut it down for me in the comments section. Seeing as a previous poster had success in having them get him one for his Mini 9 with no cut-outs in it, I figured that I'd at least ask. If they can't, then out comes the exacto blade!

Just saw the following at SGPStore.com. They need devices to produce these quality skins. How 'bout one of you nice people with Mini 10's that reside in the City of Angels do this for the rest of us, huh?! --

"Support us to produce products for your device!

We need actual device to work with to produce our products such as Steinheil, SGP Shield, Laptop Skin, and etc. To achieve our goal of having products for as many models as possible, we need to get those all devices in our hands, but it is not easy for us to purchase every thousands expensive devices! Therefore, we would appreciate your support for our production.

If you want to request products related to your device:
We would love to produce everything our customers ask us for, but unfortunately it is hard to do custom works for each of our customers as we have large numbers of customers.

I did the same and they sent it to me without the logo cut out.

It looks great and works great. Very happy.

(Just add in the note field when checking out that you would like it without the logo cut out. )

Here is my skin ordered from skinit.com The only downside is they cut a hole out for the dell logo, which I intergrated into the design. The quality of the skin is awsome, it forms to the contours well and is removeable. I really which they would not cut out the hole. Oh well, here it is.
