Has it ever happened to you that you looked at your plain white, silver or black back laptop cover and you got bored with it? Or maybe it's just got scratched badly over the years and years of (ab)use.
Well it happened to me that I bought this really cute 12" inch Toshiba Portege 4010 on eBay and when I got it was really badly scratched on the back so I was embarrassed going around it as when people would see my scratched laptop would think of me as a messy person that doesn't respect the computers.
So I had a look on the internet for websites describing how to paint your laptop and it became immediately clear to me that painting is a bit risky and time consuming job. Luckily I came across in one of the forums of Pimp My Laptop website (www.pimpmylaptop.com) where they print stickers for the back of Apple laptops only and SkinIt (www.skinit.com) that prints stickers for many different laptops, mobile phones, mp3 players and other gadgets. Both sites offer a huge selection of stickers and if that's not enough you can even upload your own jpg and they will print it on the sticker.
As on neither sites they didn't have a sticker designed specifically for my laptop I ordered from Pimp My Laptop as they are based in Finland which is closer to UK where I currently live then SkinIt that is based in the USA. I purchased a sticker for 14" Apple iBook and then cut it out to fit my laptop. See the result below.
