    I know these carbon jobs aren't a crowd favorite, but I enjoy them and the protection that they offer. Here's some pics of the carbon black iCarbons skin installed.

    They have always done a real nice job with cutting the lines and holes nice and even.

    I don't mind them on the outside, but I could never look at that all day next to my keyboard and mouse. That was put on really nicely though.

    Thanks!

    They come with one for the trackpad. I've found that these decrease the accuracy of the trackpad significantly. Therefore, I left it off.

    I could never put it on that precise myself. I would have to take it to a stand in the mall haha. Do they leave any residue when you remove them?

    It leaves zero residue. Offers great protection. Some like the look, and some don't. Do I prefer a naked look? Yes I do. But I know that it will get thrashed (just like my iPhone) if I don't have some sort of protection over it.
