BodyGuardz is a less expensive competitor. They don't have anything for the Mini.

I have the InvisibleSkin on my phone. For the Mini, I prefer the 3acp-style non-liquid adhesive skin.

Will let you know how the 'shielding' process goes!
Did you install your invisible shield? I ordered mine the other day and any advice/tips you have would be appreciated

Give it at least a week to let the bubbles disappear before you render a verdict.

Yeah I noticed the extremely long shipping time too... and it was like $40 to next day air it!

Does it really take a week to get the air bubbles out too? I figured it would not be as good as they advertise (12 - 24 hours) but was hoping that it would be close

My experience on phones is that you need at least a few days. Certainly it will look better after 24 hours. The larger the piece, the more bubbles there will be. With such a large piece as you'd have on the Mini, you'd want to start on one edge and smooth it on to keep bubbles out, as large ones in the middle may not go away for a long time and can distort the skin.

Great, thanks! I need to make sure I remove the intel atom sticker and Xp sticker now so any chemical agents from the goo gone etc is completely gone by the time the invisishield arrives (which sounds like I have plenty of time)

Got the Mini InvisibleShield in the mail today...

Pulled out the battery and whole install took @15min to apply...fairly straightforward...

Kit consisted of 6 pieces of shield (1 large pc. for top lid then 5 smaller pc. for the palm rest area)

Couple of really small pc. for the left/right trackpad buttons and the trackpad itself...

The left palmrest pc. even had notches cutout for the 2 power LEDs which is a nice touch IMHO...

Since I used so much of the liquid, think I'm gonna let my Mini sit in a corner and dry until next year before I fire it up again! :mrgreen:

Best Skins Ever is pretty much exactly the same as Invisibleshield but a fraction of the price. They don't have anything for the Mini though.
