    Some time ago, I had put a Raid101.com sticker on the missus' laptop. After removing the sticker, there had been some residual glue that was hard to clean up. I tried Isopropyl Alcohol, to no luck. For some reason (either drunk or stoned), I had a brain wave to use Nail polish remover or essentially paint thinner on the poor black finish.

    The end result -

    And this is after a lot of buffing and polishing with various silicone wax and polishes.

    Found this today in the Supermarket. She liked it instantly -

    A TouchMate Zebra Notebook Skin. To give a different unique look to your notebook :D

    And the innovative Fur design makes me like Working In Wild. It Makes My Notebook Live.

    Who the F wrote this, a certain Camel Case Friendly Guy we knew?

    Anyways, Placement -

    Thankfully it came on just right. There is a grid on the back -

    That allows you to cut to size.

    After about 5 minutes of removing and re-sticking the backing to get it right -

    Looks good, the fur looks real -

    So if anyone's feeling tribal, you know what to get for your laptop.


    Edit - I did clean the surface using Hand sanitizer and a tissue to ensure proper adhesion.

    Price - 170 INR.

    Well it is better than the dull plastic that gets me looks every time I mention it or look at it.

    Agreed. But this is a fur one :D and it was cheap (by standards here)

    You should take some steel/brass wool to the cover, then you'll have the "brushed metal" look!

    Okay, any pics of how it should come out. Bear in mind I have a chrome VAIO logo as well in the middle of the cover.

    :D I'll change the cover to a 3-D Carbon Fibre one, as soon as I get my hands on the sticker sheet.
