    Hey,

    I was wondering how i would use some of these websites. Do i just choose a skin and then mail my computer in? Or do i buy the computer off of them?

    Depends on what you want....
    Retailers - Buy a computer from them with a custom paint job
    Aftermarket painters - Send in your computer for painting
    Skins - These are stickers that they mail to you and you put on the computer yourself

    nice list of sellers. I noticed that u list a group from my country vietnam. http://www.kzak.net/Web.. They're pretty famous there in VN. Their work are widely featured in news paper and receives a lot of support. Most of their work done by hand with highly skilled and equipment. There are no spray paint printer are used in their stuff so overall it's pretty cool to have a some unique picture painted by hand ( not printed) on ur notebook lids.

    Hope they can do someth to come over the states. Sending laptops to paint over there is hard cause of customs declaration and stuff which cost u shipping and trouble. :D:D:D:D:D

    Without making any advertisement here but actually there is a company in the UK customizing notebooks, it's called Laptop Studio.
    Check out http://www.laptopstudio.co.uk
    Hope that helps!

    ooo.. there's www.skinweaver.com too. Has anyone else tried it? I've only got a laptop skin once and from this store, so I've got nothing to compare their service against. But I love my skin! In the end it's about whether their designs match your taste I guess. Assuming good quality and affordability of course! :)

    I would like to customise mine myself, but a bit afraid to lose the warranty. Obviously i'll have to take the lid off... Any ideas or suggestions? Has anyone come across getting customized stuff repaired under waranty? Any problems?

    By the way, nice skins service from Surrey, UK www.lapjacks.com

    www.colorwarepc.com will paint the laptops offered on their site and do any custom paint jobs, and keep you updated every step of the way. From what I've seen, they do a completely flawless job. You can see pictures of custom painted computers, media players, phones, and a lot more in the "prototypes" section.

    EDIT: Heh, the person above me posted the same thing.
