    I understand that the different shields (wrapsol, zagg etc) is more then just plastic sheets. But 50$ for covering up a macbook air 11"?? Thats the price of a leather case!?

    So I found these on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/full-body-prote...833?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item53e56e97b9

    On one of the pictures it even looks like its the frosty kind(like wrapsol), which blends in with apples brushed aluminum.

    Just checking in before i order...

    You buy a beautiful sculptured aluminium case, then cover it in a wrap?

    Maybe just me, but I do not understand it. Part of the pleasure of the MBA when I am using it is just the feel of the smooth metal case.

    So ive bin using the macmate skin for a couple of weeks now. And its nice, except for the inevitable peaces of dust under the skin.

    I have never seen wrapsols version IRL, but this is exactly what i wanted, a skin that keeps the frosty look, and melts in with the brushed aluminum.

    It wouldnt surprise me if its from the same factory as wrapsol, and pay a lot more for the fancy box.

    Some pics from my iphone(kind of bad, i can take some with a better camera if anybody want):
