    Hi,

    Just picked up a mid level (8GB, 256) rMBP last night. LOVE IT.

    Just wondering if any of you know where I can't get a carbon fiber sticker for the top and bottom of it?

    Thanks for the pics!

    I'll either go with slickwraps or iCarbons, too bad they don't cut out the Apple logo. Pretty sure they used to, any one know why they changed that?

    I just bought a set from iCarbons! the reason why they stopped cutting is because Apple requested them not to, they want to protect the trademark, more info here http://www.icarbons.com/pages/faq2

    That logo is trademarked. Prolly got a cease and desist from Apple's lawyers.

    Thanks everyone. I ended up ordering one off eBay.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/3D-Carbon-F...9?pt=US_Laptop_Cases_Bags&hash=item2ecc664481

    I wanted one with the Apple logo cut out and the only one (I could find) in North America that does them is Bodyguarz, but they wanted a ridiculous amount to ship to me in Canada.

    25-35 business days shipped for the eBay one. Way too long, but I wouldn't be happy unless I could see the logo all the time. Worth the wait for me.

    Hope it works well for you. I have an iCarbons one on my MBP and was fortunate to get one before Apple forced them to stop cutting out the logo. I frankly don't understand what the big deal is, but better to comply than face the company's stockpile of lawyers.
