    @Shozuki check this out http://www.decalrus.com/

    FYI i never went for any branded skins, i bought carbon fiber wrap from amazon and removed my touchpad assembly, and did it myself, finished in 3 dollars.. Yes u have to be patient when cutting and sticking without air bubbles.. but its better then spending 20 dollars for a skin..

    The absolutely best thing to clear those prints is this:

    With these:
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B0...ning+cloth&dpPl=1&dpID=517wZcovs0L&ref=plSrch

    Well worth the money, I've tested a lot of products but this restores it to looking new everytime! (Just be careful not to snag any keys when using the microfibre cloth on the keyboard)

    Baby wipes and a towel is the best thing, the wipes remove all the oil and won’t mess the finish up. Just dry it with the towel, it doesn’t get soaked but it gets a tad damp.

    Careful that those baby wipes are just pure water though, some chemicals used in those could eat away at the Matt finish over time

    I use the non scented ones, they aren’t as wet as normal. And I dry it immediately, I think alcohol wipes are
    more abrasive then a baby wipe.

    Thanks guys I've opted for Mr. Light's suggestion and Mr. Gameboy suggestion for a skin.

    I want to use the Laptop for work and play but need it to scream Gamer a bit less lol hence wanting to make it a bit more understated...
