    I'm buying and Aorus X7 v6 (http://www.aorus.com/Product/Gallery/X7 v6) and I want to make a matte black, simple, clean skin for just the keyboard area, so as not to wear down the finish on the palm rests. What materials would be best? I've been looking at vinyl but how do I make sure to cut precisely to make holes for the trackpad,keyboard and ventilation? Thanks for any help!

    I want to do essentially the same thing this guy did, but on the 17" model (he's on the 13" model)http://forum.aorus.com/forum/gaming-laptops/2209-2014-aorus-x3-plus-one-year-on-feedback

    Find someone with a plotter vinyl print/cut system and send them a vector file

    Agreed most decal shop that make decals for car advertising and such will be able to make one up for you.

    Edit: unless your really handy with an exact-o knife

    You may also want to ask for non-permanent adhesive on the vinyl of the point is to preserve the finish. A lot of vinyl has aggressive adhesive that may leave a residue if left in place for years.
