    I know many already are aware of this, but If you have a modern HP laptop, you can get a free skin (with free shipping). They have custom cut skins (like for the tx1000 and tx2000) and universal ones. You can pick one of their graphics or make your own custom one with any picture. Here is the link:

    Wow - thanks. The hard part will be choosing which one. Anyone out there have one already? How do they look on? Thanks!:eek:

    I got one made from the "school of athens" painting and another from "the persistence of memory"...they are basically stickers made from a thick vinyl. I think they look good, but colors seem to come out a bit darker than you expect. They do fit quite well.

    argh, the only supported models are from the "consumer" line and not the "business" line

    i'd kill to have a skin: it'd make the best protection against all those tiny scratches my TC4400 is so prone to!

    You need a serial number from a consumer model to get the free skin website, but it will let you choose a bussines model (i saw the 4400 listed) to get the skin for once you are in the website. Just get a hold of a consumer model serial number from somewhere.

    Will they come off nicely if you change your mind? Or, for the mechanically-declined among us (such as me), can you adjust the position if you stick it wrong the first time?

    they will come off and leave no residue, but you can only stick and peel then about five times before they start to loose their stickiness

    Thanks!
    I only liked the Chopper Skins... going to try the red one on my TX... feeling bold!

    Will pass on to all those I know with HP Laptops.

    It was posted in the very begining of the thread.

    btw, am I reading it wrong, or do they ship internationally for free?

    edit: btw2, tx2000 has exactly the same shape as tx1000, right?

    Mine came today - that's some impressive time since I orderd it last Sunday! I just got the laptop on Monday (I ordered with the serial number from my order confirmation, so didn't even have my machine in hand yet). Anyway, mine arrived with a 1/4 inch crimp in one corner, so it won't adhere in that corner. I contacted them via e-mail to let them know about it even before I tried to apply it, just to let them know. Hopefully they'll just ship me a replacement. This one will work for a while - visually it's not that noticable, but i'm pretty certain that it will cause problems long term.

    I'm using it on the tx2000 - I actually really like the imprint on the case, but this will protect it. I like the fact that I can just order another one in a different design when the mood strikes me (and i want to spend the money:).

    heh, well, i managed to get a skin myself.... even though i don't have a HP model that listed.

    the trick? i selected the "tx1000", and entered the serial number on the bottom of my TC4400... and there you have it, a customised skin for a tx1000 is being shipped to me. i've customised the skin so that it has sort of empty space around the two sides, so that I can cut that off to match the size of my TC4400. we'll see how well that turns out.

    Can you still get these for free with a new consumer laptop?

    Hi,

    I went to the Skinit site and I didn't see any option that asks me for my serial number. Could you please tell me if I can still get a skin for free? If yes, could you please tell me where to enter my serial number to get it for free?

    Thanks

    Seriously? Awesome! That makes a nice change. And they're cheap enough that customs might not care too.

    Definitely getting one. Maybe a custom one. If I can settle on a design...

    EDIT: If you can't still get them for free, you *can* still find discount codes ;)
