    laptop skins


    I want to but a new skin for my ASUS K53SV, not just the back but the touchpad as well. I also want to re sticker or cover the laptop to ones that glow in the dark as I find it really difficult to type in the dark at the moment.
    Can someone point me in the right direction of a shop that sells these as I have tried Googling it & can't find anything (only the skins for the back)

    I'd be surprised if a glow in the dark skin actually made it any easier to type in the dark. I use a USB powered flexible light to illuminate my keyboard at night when I'm out on my deck. Putting a sticker over the touch pad might make it hard to use or even completely non functional.

    I have the same flexible LED light modified and mounted to my desk to light up my desktop keyboard. I like to game with the room lights off. It turns on and off with the PC so I don't have to touch it or remember to turn it off.

    I had an excellent Skin for my Gateway Core Duo laptop, but shortly after I put it on, the power supply dies on me.

    I've been thinking of sending it to a guy who adverts on eBay, offering to fix any Gateway Laptop for 100 bucks flat. Think I should do it, the guy has a high rating... and I miss my 17" laptop screen heh.
