Default Mini Skins? - 10-08-2008, 12:43 AM

Does anyone know a site that is already selling skins for the Mini? I've looked at the few "skin" sites I know *pause* but haven't been able to find anything.

I saw some on eBay. They have extra pieces and are like $25 plus shipping. I'm going to create my own at one of the sites. I only want it for the top to help with fingerprints. I'm waiting until after I receive my Mini though, IF I EVER DO, so I can measure it exactly.

I have a Skin ...








I ordered from the Ebay seller, I think 3APC..

Let me say that the Quality of the skin is AMAZING, It is very well designed, the laser cut is
pretty much dead perfect, and Its Made out of High quality vinyl .. and It goes on completely smooth
without ANY air bubbles what so ever -

It was a little pricey, But definitely worth it ... If nothing else It leaves people really wondering what kind of
computer it is.... And no more fingerprints !!

If it gets scratched up or screwed up - Well about $30 and ... Well, I just think its GOOD investment.
Also the Skin seems VERY scratch resistant.

And When I change my mood, or in 3 months or whatever, just slap a new flavor on.

I dont sell these skins - I dont make them - I am simply a buyer and a Mini owner, but.. I really do LIKE the quality
of these skins and I definitely would buy another.

Yeah - I dont know Why The (IMG) Tags aren't working....

But the Link is here....

for some reason the pics aren't loading despite that if I copy the url they load fine then. I assume something wrong with the tags.I assume the host doesn't allow hotlinking?

I'm generally not a fan of mucking around with the clean design of most laptops I own, but that looks pretty neat!

I never really considered using a skin, but those are pretty cool.

This thread should probably be moved the the "accessories" forum"

The skins described above from ebay certainly look good and I'd be willing to pay a premium for them however, unless you're in the US the seller's shipping charges are way out of whack. $6.95 to ship anywhere in the US but $25 to ship to Canada! I refuse to pay more in shipping than the cost of any product as a rule. It's not like we're talking bricks here either.
