    Glad you like their product. I'm very happy with the brown leather one that I got. I'm hoping someone will post their impression of the wooden texture ones.

    That site seems legit to me. Can't get anything off of the domain records, but the price is definitely better than the seller from eBay. It seems like that one particular seller on eBay is based in Korea and ships from Korea. If SGP has setup a US office and shipping it directly out of LA, even better! There is a CA tax, but even with that, I think you save about $8.

    I tried placing an order just to see how much it would cost to ship to canada, and even though i chose the least expensive shipping option (First Class Mail International Large Envelope $2.44), when i went to the order confirmation screen it always changed it to the "Global Express Guaranteed" option which costs like $30.45!!

    I tried this a couple of times but still the same. Let me know if you guys have any luck

    Mine finally came with the brown leather look and it's awesome. The quality was better than expected. And much better than Skin-It on the tx1000.

    With this Leather cover on are you guys not using a sleeve anymore or a case? I was thinking that with this cover I can just stick the TX2500 into my regular bag now.

    I still use a sleeve because it'll still protect the whole notebook from scratches. The skin is only applied to the lid.

    I just use my targus radius vertical messenger bag instead of a sleeve. The bag itself actually fits into a 15.4" laptop slot in other bags. (I have another Targus backpack and an old dell XPS bag.) Unfortunately, tx2500 won't fit in the targus bag with the sleeve on. :( Just use the targus bag as a day bag (carrying the tablet, extra batteries, and couple of other small things.).

    So no sleeves and so far so good with this skin.

    I highly recommend against the wood grains.
    They may at first seem pleasant but in person are terribly tacky.
    Brown Leather is pro.

    I would however suggest, provided it forms properly, a keyboard skin.
    I kept one on my powerbook for years and they really keep the filth out from your keybed.
    I'll report back on fit once I've received mine.
