    I've been looking for a back scratch protection, and came accross iCarbons. I first found about the black version, so when I decided to order it, I found that there were other options available. Which do you guys think is the best?
    FYI, I have black iPad 2.

    I'm sorry if the images are gigantic, but I'm on my iPad ATM, so can't resize them.

    I really like the dark wood one too, but that speaker cutout ruins the effect for me.

    I agree. If they could've covered the speaker and then put some small holes to let the sound out, then it would be much better looking IMO.

    Thanks guys. I just orded both the Black Carbon Fiber and Dark Wood. The only reason I ordered Carbon Fiber version was because I don't like having slippery back, since I hold my iPad with one hand while walking around.

    Does anyone know how long it actually takes for it to ship internationally?
    It says 2~5 weeks on their website, but that's pretty vague. I want to hear from people who actually ordered it outside of U.S.

    This is what USPS tells us to expect but it's all dependent on your local customs office. It can be much quicker. You can also upgrade to express for 1-2 weeks and tracking info. 2 weeks express is to like Australia. For the UK its within a week. Hope this helps!

    I like the look of these, especially the white carbon fiber and brushed aluminium. The wood ones look garish IMO.

    Black carbon for MBA

    Hi
    Just got a Macbook Air and ordered the Black Carbon skin for it direct from icarbons.com. Choose the standard (cheaper) delivery and received in under 1 week!!

    As for my initial verdict on the product....I love it!! Makes the Mac look even more class, protects and was a easy to apply. Thumbs up from me :)

    I've had multitudes of overseas mail, even via regular old air mail I receive most parcels from the US to Rural Australia in about 7 business days.
