Cool Skins for My Precious Laptop

Jun 12 2008 - 2:20am

Lately, I've been toying around with the idea of getting a skin for my laptop [1]. Since I lug it around everywhere with me, I run the risk of damage from taking it in and out of my bag, in my luggage, or even just when it's sitting on my kitchen table. Plus, I have to admit I get pretty OCD about smudges and scratches on my precious gadgets... I'm sure you know what I mean.

But I don't want just any skin, I'd of course have to get something exciting, but not too flashy. I've shopped around, and found skins ranging from uber geeky to techie cool, and I think I've finally narrowed down my choices. But I need some help deciding! Check out some of my fave laptop skins from around the web and let me know which of these you think I should slap on my lappy!
