Just received and installed the black carbon fiber skin for my IPad mini. Thought I'd post some info and pics.

I like to skin my Ipads and Macbooks - it provides great scratch protection without adding a lot of weight or ruining the size and shape of the device. I ordered the black carbon fiber skin for my black IPad Mini. Fit and finish is excellent, and installation is very easy - not nearly as error-prone as the wet-install skins.

Some pics attached.

I was considering an iCarbons skin for my iPad 4 when I get it this Christmas. However, those alternating squares of light and dark grey look distracting...

Spend a lot of time staring at the back of your iPad, do ya?

I have a small sticker on my iPad screen - "This side towards user". :)

THey have 6-7 different types for the mini - this was the only black one, and I wanted to keep the black color.

Hey glen e, I just wanted to say thanks again for the timely reply. I've been having difficulty trying to find a full body cover for my mini, so I appreciate your response. I checked on Amazon, but the case I received was very poor quality (sagged on the bottom of the mini. It was a gel/plastic type material from Iblaston). Take care and I hope you have a good Christmas!
