    Does anyone have experience using their MBA with iCarbons skins (or other skins for that matter) and the Twelve South BookArc Air stand? I'm concerned that the iCarbons skin will increase the thickness of the MBA beyond what will fit in the BookArc Air stand.

    The iCarbons website claims their skins are 8 Mil thick (http://www.icarbons.com/pages/overview). This works out to be 0.2032mm/0.008" (1 Mil = 0.001" = 0.0254mm), or doubled to 0.4064mm/0.016" if applied to the top and bottom of the MBA.

    The BookArc website claims their stands are not compatible with snap-on cases, but makes no mention of skins (http://twelvesouth.com/products/BookArc_for_Air/tech-specs/).

    Thanks!

    I use it with the Wrapsol skin with no problems.

    Thanks for the reply philxor! Wrapsol skins are apparently somewhere between 12 and 14 mil thick, so I should be good as you say. :cool:
