    So I am looking at the iCarbons and was wondering if it messes with the heat dissipation through the bottom covering... for me I like to webcam a lot and am always running kind of warm, around 70-85 degrees C, even idling around 60. Right now I have a bestskinsever applied and its not really messing with the heat but I am wondering if iCarbons will block it more. Thanks in advance!

    No Problems

    I've had an iCarbons skin on both my 17" Macbook Pro and my wife's 13" Macbook Pro for about a year now and its been perfect. It looks really cool and before I installed it, I noticed the aluminum bottom of my wife's Macbook Pro was getting scratches all over it from just moving it around with nothing protecting it. So after watching that iCarbons scratch test on youtube, I had to get one. I run Handbreak all the time and render animations with Maya on my laptop and obviously it gets hot, but the skin doesn't effect it in anyway. I'm happy with it. Hope this helps
