Never had a laptop skin before... I've used hard shell cases. I gave it a try and I must say, it's a pleasure to look at and use my old 2015 Macbook air again. Feels like a new computer! Installation was not that hard -- I found the bottom was easier to center correctly because of the 4 feet cutouts. The top took 2-3 tries to get centered. The top skin feels like its could extend just a tiny bit more in all directions, though, maybe I didn't center it perfectly...So far no signs of any pealing.
I initially disliked that the logo printed was printed, but it doesn't bother me. I would buy this skin again. I wish there were more patterns to choose from. I know its hard to keep 10 different versions of every pattern in stock ready ready to ship, but hopefully FishSkyn will expand their offering. In my photo, the top cover already had a separate decal of a vintage apple logo... not part of the skin.
