    Anyone tried a gelaskin on their new aluminum MacBook?

    I was trying to hold off to see if their website posted a new size, but decided to just go with the old size/version because I was worried about cosmetic damage while waiting.

    In the past, I have ordered both the skin for the 13.3 and a 15" skin then wrapped and trimmed it. I prefer to wrap it because it prevents it from getting bunched up and peeling. I am sorta wishing I would have gone with the 15" again. But I ordered the piano man and was worried he might not fit if I trimmed.

    I like Gelaskins selection and all, but I am kinda tired of their pitiful mailing and customer service. And paying almost 10 dollars for a package that will take over a week to get here is ridiculous.

    Think I need to stick with stuff that ships from the US. I have ordered from decal girl a couple of times, need to just see what they offer from now on.

    The Apple does not like to be hidden. >:-\

    I like the product design you got, but the skin on a MacBook isn't for me.

    I dont see why you would pay so much money for a laptop to cover it up. I want everyone to know i own a MBP, the last thing i want to do is cover the master piece up!

    Glad you like it though

    I like art.

    I dont like ordinary.

    I dont really ever think about other people knowing I have a mac. It has never really entered my mind.

    But for people who like the apple cut out, Isis Dei has skins with the apple cut out.
