Hi
Im wondering if anyone in the uk have found somewhere that sells like a black sticker etc to cover the silver bezel on the mba 11" screen?
I love my mba (2011) but cant get used to the silver bezel

All help very much appreciated

I actually prefer the aluminum bezel. Black bezels are fingerprint magnets. I like the fact that my MBA is not a fingerprint monster.

Agreed #2. Aluminum bezel looks more classy and blends with the design.

I like the aluminium bezel on the Air too. My BTO MBP has one so I suppose I'm already used to it.

if your still not convinced and want a black bezel there are a few sites around that offer "skins" that will cover the bezel (and MBA) in almost anything you want.
google "skinit" or "decalgirl"

Sticker boy dot net sells some very nice skin products. For my MBA, I have the side skins, keyboard skin, and bezel skin. They come in a variety of styles including black carbon fiber, and are made from 3M Dinoc, a top quality vinyl material that leaves no bubbles. My skins look like they were installed at the factory. Highly recommended if you are looking for skins.

The silver Asus Zenbook has a black bezel but the top cover looks like cheap stainless steel, and of course what really turned me off, the sharp corners, AND the price.

I like the look of black bezels better, but can appreciate the advantages of the aluminum one. No big deal to me either way. Pluses and minuses to both.

Cheap stainless steel ? SS is higher quality than aluminum mate :) and doesnt scratch easy plus stronger.

Anodized aluminum is more scratch resistant than stainless.

It is also a better conductor of heat.

oh I dunno which one is stronger but that glossy stainless steel looks more like pre-scratched chrome to me. Air aluminum look more like magnesium with a light champagne hue.

I guess you never used an iPod touch w/ the stainless back. The second you peel the wrapper off the thing and set it down ONE time, it's scratched.

Nah you dont mate, drop/ding your "powerfull" anodized stuff and bam! Nice scratch with different color.

SS scratch ? Easy you can buff it out.

Stainless steel is not immune to dings or dents.

Aluminum oxide ranks higher than stainless steel on Mohs' scale. That means it is scratches less easily than stainless steel. ;)

Why did you misspell "powerful" and then point it out to everyone with quotation marks? :confused:
