    one thread is enough.

    And we can't make decisions for you. Do you find it cool or not? That is the important thing. It shouldn't matter what others think, at least in this regard.

    That's like asking us what your fav color is. I personally think its cool, but that's ultimately your taste.

    this is cool, but is it just an image or does it have texture?

    I think it looks cool, but it is up to you - it'll be your MacBook.
    My only concern, looking at the photographs, is that it doesn't appear to extend round the edge of the lid, which would suggest that it's a stick-on, as opposed to a clip-on. I personally wouldn't want anything 'glued' onto my MBP.
    Also, if you're using it for protection against scratches, the photos seem to suggest it only covers the lid, and not the base.

    Don't worry, there are some around that are always looking to decapitate others. Oddly enough, they are also one of the first to respond. It's like they hide around looking for others to brutalize. ;)

    I second that! If it's actually good nice texture and not a plasticy look to it, it could potentially be nice.

    all depends on how well it fits, and if you fit it correctly ;)

    Not as cool as the Aluminum you'd be covering up, I'm afraid.

    I'm not a big fan of skins. It's either carbon fiber or it's not; it's like buying furniture; if it's solid wood, it's good; if it's just a fiberboard with a print on it's pointless.

    Same here; if you want the carbon fiber look, get the real stuff.
