    For those of you who remember the Dark Grey Leather skin, this new black skin looks even better.

    I ordered one and will post pictures after I've applied it.

    They also have some new interesting skins for other Dell laptops, including carbon:

    These skins seem to cover the silver edges as well.

    That looks pretty sleek :cool:. Only if I hadn’t already spent $30 on the dark Grey skin :( …
    Post pictures.. I might get another one too.

    EDIT : when you receive it could you please take few pictures with the black skin next to your already existing grey skin ? I want to see how dark it looks. Thanks

    I kind of ruined my Dark Grey Leather skin removing it. The thin area above the 'P' in 'XPS' got ripped, and I was unable to safely glue it back in place.

    Anyways, that's my excuse to get the black one!

    I will surely do a pic of the new black one next to my old damaged grey one.

    That's a pretty sleek looking *black leather skin* :D I bet it's gonna look great on your 1330!~

    I saw they had skin's for the Mini 9, also! If I were ever to make any changes to my I9, I might have to ponder something like this (might):

    Looking forward to your pic's! :cool:

    I have the SGP dark grey skin on my XPS 1530 - SGP's skins are very high quality and fit perfectly. My only regret is they don't really offer much in the line of skins for H-P's and Toshiba's....

    I just received my black leather skin today, and I'm disappointed.

    There are no cut-outs for:

    - 'Dell' text in the center of the skin
    - 'XPS' text in the lower strip of the skin

    I sent them an e-mail and am awaiting their response.

    :(

    This is the response I got. I'm going to quintuple check that the cut-outs aren't there.

    Thank you for contacting SGP Customer Service.
    Our laptop skin products are created at the time we recieve the order from our customers, therefore it is not possible that the skin is missing some cuts.
    Our Deep Black Leather and Carbon Texture skin are more thicker than other kinds of skins, and as our cut our lines are thin, some of our customers can't easily see the cutting lines for logos.
    We suggest you to see more carefully in the middle, and try to take off the skin from the yellow back paper, then you will be able to see and take off the lettering cuts.
    But we do know that something that can be happened happens sometimes, if you could not find the logo cut out after trying to puch off the middle and take the part off as it is not been have fully cut,
    it will be eligible for our replacement warranty, for the replacement we just need a few required information from you.
    For more detail and procedure for the replacement warranty, please check our policy statement from our website, or click here for the direct link: http://sgpstore.com/policy.php

    OK, so it was my problem. The cut-outs for the lettering are so fine, that they do not show up unless you remove the stickers from the backing!

    I'll put up some pictures later on....

    It looks really good!
