    OK, I'll go first and post my notebook.

    I was inspired buy a screen saver. The paint is PPG auto paint applied via an airbrush with the Asus S96J intact and masked off. The Logitech MediaPlay mouse was painted to match.

    Just did this tonight. Read about the carbon fiber vinyl decals in another thread, stopped by Pepboys and picked up a roll to try it out. It turned out pretty good. I've got enough for a redo but I think I'll see how this first run holds up.

    Hey that is pretty slick looking! I like it!

    @Circa: Gotta love the Logitech MediaPlay mouse! I have that mouse as well, I really like it, but my USB receiver broke. I was actually considering soldering it inside my notebook, but I haven't had the chance yet, and I don't think it is working anymore anyway! ;)

    yeah, I have given mine a couple of good blows when I have forgotten to unplug it.
    I really wish someone would make an express card rf mouse so it would all be internal.

    I really like the carbon look, looks really professional, do you also have put carbon on the inside around the keyboard?
