the dell logo protrudes from the computer, unless you can remove it or sand it down, a cover is not going to look good, it will have a bulge if it does not have a cutout

cut and pasted from the external accessories forum:


Decalgirl.com = no user image uploads allowed but has "NO" hole option

Skinit.com = skin has hole for logo, no option to NOT have hole, $24.95

Gelaskin.com = $28 incl. shipping, allows user image upload and "NO" hole option

MyTego.com = $33 incl. shipping, allows user image upload and "NO" hole option

Uniqueskins.com = $19.50 incl shipping but max 1.5MB user image upload


I used MyTego on my Dell laptop and quality was excellent. Re protruding Dell logo, I opted for "NO" hole and the skin covers the logo like a, ah, skin. It's like stealth, very subtle, looks very professional with a hint of Dell

Please upload a photo of how this looks! I'd like to do this, bu ti fear the dell logo will still be visible as an indentation.

This may be a dumb question, but are the SGP skins actual leather and wood, or is this 'pleather'?

Thanks

how about using a cheaper remedy, like painting it for instance it or some sort of radium sticker and laminating it???

just a thought ;-)

I got a skin from DecalGirl.com to match the skin of my Mac Mini. Fits nice and includes a matching skin to go around the palmrest/trackpad. Good stuff.
LOL this is also my first post on here. I used the guides here to hackintosh
my 10v ^_^. It went smoothly, and I am very satisfied.

Hi Jason, and welcome to the Forum!

You have a very smart setup there... and a Mac Mini as well.

I would love one of those, but can't really justify the expenditure at the moment!

In the meantime however, I am delighted with my 'hackintoshed' 10v, and am pleased to hear of your positive experience.

Thanks, I was scared at first! I have been using pc's for a decade+ now, and hackintoshing a Dell sort of was intimidating. ahhaa But... I am glad I did
it.
The Mini is pretty rad. If they refresh it later this year I may buy a newer
one to replace this and throw this one under the TV. I have an Apple remote
so when I am sitting on the couch studying I just click the remote and throw
some tunes on. It would be cool under the tv though!

Just hopefully Apple shows the Mini line some love with a decent refresh
this year.
