im feeling this for my black one when i get it 🙂December 13, 2008 at 1:13 pm #175543techguyoneMember
I wonder how fiddly they are to fit and how long they last before peeling, my experience of ‘stickers’ isn’t fantasticDecember 13, 2008 at 4:09 pm #175555qqg3Member

Same, how durable can these really be…December 15, 2008 at 10:33 pm #175556saureyMember
They look cheesy IMO.December 15, 2008 at 10:34 pm #175553PanManMember
I bit my tongue after looking at how much the postage isDecember 16, 2008 at 8:55 pm #175552dennisMember
Nice skins, but $ 27 for postage? I reckon the skin is printed on some sort of paper and postage would normally be $1 or $ 2, max. $ 10 if registered.
Paying $ 53 ($26 + $ 27) is just crazy and not worth it (IMHO).December 16, 2008 at 9:12 pm #175541dougpMember
I wonder if enough of us email DecalGirl.com, they’ll post specific Samsung NC10 skins instead of us having to use customs?December 17, 2008 at 1:14 am #175547juancarlosMember
i had the same problem, i was looking for designs at 3acp but never found one to suit my taste. i saw some nice ones from decalgirl but they didnt have any for the nc10 so i decided to cut out my own skin from some left over carbon fiber vinyl from my desktop modding. i used the plastic cover that came with the brand new laptop as a template but gave it about half an inch more on all sides. the avery carbon fiber vinyl i used has an outdoor life of 2-3 years so im sure its pretty durable. it peels off pretty easy too without any residue. my nc10 looks very cool now, the picture really doesnt do it justice.

That looks pretty good, but not a fan of decals usuallyDecember 18, 2008 at 9:02 am #175546SideburntMember
that carbon fibre vinyll looks good, but i feel the same, great when they first go on, but like a lunchbox when the corners start to peel up.December 18, 2008 at 11:02 am #175557OlegGioMember
Those skins look really great, but shipping price 🙁December 19, 2008 at 12:24 am #175548juancarlosMember
i really dont know what you guys are talking about, i wrapped my keyboard and mouse in the same carbon fiber vinyl more than a year ago and they still look as good today as the day i put the vinyl on. i game heavily on my desktop sometimes for several hours a day so my mouse and keyboard take a lot of abuse but ive had no problem with peeling whatsoever. so long as you apply it correctly it should last a really long time. in addition the vinyl isnt just there for looks, it keeps my lid scratch free so if ever i do decide to sell my nc10 in the future it will be in very good condition.December 19, 2008 at 2:06 pm #175558OlegGioMember
But I don’t want to wrap it with carbon fiber vinyl, I like their [ictured skins, just have to find better postage fees and order. BTW most of them offer just back skin, while one at ebay gives in addition frame and pad skinsDecember 21, 2008 at 8:36 pm #175559jrprichMember
Where did you get the carbon fiber vinyl ?
