    i have been putting skins on all of my devices and have tried all the different manufacturers

    The only one I hadnt seen was wrapsol so I gave it a shot

    the install was easy just need patience and the final result is amazing

    the skin is thick and very "tough" . It is hard to explain but it has a matte finish that actually makes the aluminum look even better!

    I would recommend it to everyone bc the unibody macs scratch very easily!

    I disagree. They don't scratch very easily in my opinion, but they can scratch. :)
    Thanks for letting us know about Wrapsol.

    I just installed my first Wrapsol about a month ago. It is very expensive, but a very high quality product that looks great on the aluminum macs.

    Looks like a nice product, but priced about twice what it should be.

    I have a Zagg InvisiShield on my 11" MBA but just bought a WrapSol for my 15" i5 MBP for $26.00 (full body) at Amazon...

    Yea, but the zagg invisishield has a tacky, rubbery feel to it. The wrapsol is more like a super thin sheet of glass. ;-)

    I agree. I've never scratched either of the MBA computers I have owned (original MBA for about 2.5 years + new 11.6" MBA for two months). I guess I just take pretty good care of them.

    ill take some pics you will have a hard time even noticing the case

    word of advice after having it on a few days now when installing keep away from the edges about 2mm

    in one corner i cut it a little close and it is peeling a little bit

    The only thing I don't have a Wrapsol on is my 27" iMac...

    iPhone 4, iPad 3G, and 13" MBAir all have a Wrapsol installed.

    I have both a Zagg InvisiShield and a Wrapsol on my 11" MBA and 15" i5 MBP respectively and IMO both have advantages...I prefer the shiny look and stickier grip of the Zagg on my more portable MBA and the more matte finish on my sedentary MBP that is connected to my ACD...:)

    I just installed my wrapsol. The hardest thing to get aligned right was the palmrest cover. The pieces in the middle stretched a bit, so I'll have to go in later and trim along the left edge just slightly to get rid of the overhang. Otherwise, it went on well, and wasn't difficult. The soapy liquid + sticky back worked better than other skins I've tried in the past on other devices.

    I have used Gela skins and they can use any picture you have and can custom cut like they did for my superdrive, looks great.
