Bored of your Ultrabooks design? With Ultrabook skins, you can create a unique Ultrabook which will stand out from the crowd.
There are a range of fantastic looking well designed Ultrabooks on the market which exude class and fit in practically anywhere. Brushed aluminium, carbon fibre, sleak lines all add up to make a great looking ultra-portable, however for some people their Ultrabook may not be the best looking. The Acer TimelineUltra series, for example, does not feature the same high quality materials nor did they go through as much thought during design stages as the Lenovo Carbon X1, or Dell XPS 13.
If you own an Ultrabook which isn’t all that great to look at then what should you do, sit idly by whilst others lap it up with classy looking machines which make yours look tired?
Product skins have been around for as long as portable electronics have, however when Apple released their iPhone and re-invented the smartphone way back in 2007, there was a massive boom in skin creation companies offering products to personalize your computing and portable electronics experience.
What is an Ultrabook skin?
Skins are essentially one big, high resolution high quality sticker laser cut to fit to specific models of device down to the millimetre. They need no extra adhesive, no liquid to stick them down, they just work straight out of the packet they come in. Now whilst a smartphone skin is small, laptop skins aren’t; you can choose to have a skin which covers the back of your screen lid, or you can choose to have a skin which covers the whole trackpad and armrest area of your Ultrabook.
The benefits to an Ultrabook skin are clear; they allow consumers to personalize their laptop to any design they like, and they also protect your machine from scratches, dents and stains in the process, keeping your expensive purchase in as good as new condition for the duration you leave the skin on.
There are skins available for pretty much any laptop. Whether you are looking for Dell Ultrabook skins, HP Ultrabook skins, Asus Ultrabook skins or any other manufacturer skin, rest assured with the websites listed below you’ll find the perfect skin for you.
