Yes, the iCarbons truly are amazing! I’ve got dozens of expensive cases and premium accessories that do really well decorating my precious Apple hardware but I’m yet to come across something so fantastic and simple as a carbon fiber textured 3M sticker that makes my favourite cell phone, tablet & laptop look absolutely stunning.
A couple of months back, I reviewed the iCarbons white carbon fiber skins for iPhone 4S and the new iPad. Since then, I’ve received a few more carbon fiber skins i.e a black carbon fiber skin for Macbook Pro 13″, a black carbon fiber skin for the latest Mac Mini and a white carbon fiber skin for iPad Smart Cover. Let me show you how these look!
The 13″ Macbook Pro unibody black iCarbon sells for $49.95 and comes complete with back, keyboard and bottom skins. The skin fits perfectly around each and every cutout, from the glowing Apple logo down to the tiny mic-hole.
Like I suggested in my previous iCarbons review, you should watch the installation video before attempting an install, especially for the larger skins like Macbook Pro. Trust me, it really helps.
The iPad Smart Cover white iCarbon is priced at $14.95 and is recommended for Polyurethane Smart covers only. You can always use the iCarbons over leather ones but if you ever decide to remove the skin, the gloss finish on the leather will be lost.
iCarbons are easiest to install on flat surfaces like the Smart cover. It hardly took me 2 minutes to install the four strips of white iCarbons on my gray Smart cover. Matched with the iPad’s white carbon fiber skin, it looks simply awesome!
You can grab a Mac Mini black iCarbon for $29.95. You’ll get a top skin, a side wrap and a skin for the bottom. Mac Mini skins are available in two versions, with CD Rom and without CD Rom, so order yours carefully. You’ll also get two Apple inserts, one in white and another in red. I used the white one on mine and it looks gorgeous.
