Normally I don’t do skins. Not for phones, tablets, and definitely not my Macbook Pro. However, when I was offered the chance to review this one I decided to give it a try. The idea looked interesting.
The first thing that struck me was just how high quality this skin felt. I was expecting some kind of wood affect, or wood patter, but what I actually got was a real piece of wood! This thing feels really, really nice! It doesn’t just add style, but it adds a pretty thick layer to the lid of your mac which will help prevent scratching and damage.
I was expecting that something like this would really look pretty terrible and cheap when applied, but I couldn’t have been any more wrong. The skin fits perfectly, with small cuts that allow the skin to flex around the corners. The skin adds a look that leaves the macbook looking absolutely stunning.
The wood itself feels very smooth, while at the same time still offers enough grip that the macbook won’t slip from your hand.
Fitting the skin is extremely easy. First up, line it up and make sure it fits with your macbook’s lid, then, peal off the adhesive strip and place it on the mac. Once you’re satisfied with its position, give it a good rub and make sure it’s stuck in place. I had my skin fitted in under a minute and it looks great.
As I’ve said above, I didn’t expect much from this, but I’m glad I decided to give it a go. It really adds a new and unique look to my Macbook and is well worth the price.
