    I have always used skin protection on all my MacBooks. I typically have only used the clear, glossy films that gives my MacBooks a glossy look. However, I recently decided to try the matte finish and I must say I like it better than the glossy versions. I think it allows the MacBook to keep the original look of the aluminum material while providing great protection. What do you guys and gals think? Glossy or matter finishes?

    Matte looks good! I got a carbon skin for mine but kinda want to go back to the 'naked' look. Where did you get these from?

    This is what I'm sporting on my rMBP 15" right now. And no, it's not a printed vinyl wrap, but rather a paper thin (.010") real wood wrap.

    Do those skins wrap around the edges of the screen and/or the edge of the body? I opted for a case as the areas that I tend to damage are corners/edges, and not the actual surfaces themselves.

    They don't wrap around the edges or the sides. But the full body kit includes all the side pieces along with the palm rest area and track pad. I usually don't get the full body kit because I never rest my palms on my laptop so I never have to worry about that area getting worn.

    The company hasn't launched it yet. I'm pushing to have it happen soon, as there are some other great looking uses. image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg
