    I wanted to see if some of you have skinned (or put stickers) on your Pixelbook, or left it naked? For those that have left it naked, how has the casing held up?

    Edit: I've been thinking about doing this before my Pixelbook arrives. My wife has a dbrand skin on her MacBook Air (metallic gray) and has held up well, and I had a carbon fiber skin (don't recall the brand) on my old MacBook Pro that got scratched up over time, but protected the laptop itself.

    What skin did you go with (dbrand, Xtremeskins, Slickwraps, etc.)? Got a pic of it with the skin?

    ^^^Nice! I happen to pick the same color combination before I saw your picture. Same as yours: back, trackpad and bottom in Hyperblack Titanium, glass in Matte White, Google logo in red. It's essentially the reverse of my panda Pixel 2 XL.

    Sorry if I inadvertently copied your look.

    For those of you that did skin their Pixelbooks, did it affect the wireless signals by covering the glass portion?

    Also, I skinned the tracpad without issues

    Is it the consensus that DBrand is the best?

    Very similar to Itsa_Me_Mario's, but here's mine covered in a dbrand skin, next to my panda Pixel 2 XL...


    You can also look at Xtremeskins, but I don't know how good a quality their skins are.

    If it wasn't for kids, pets, and any chance of it getting scratched by the elements, I'd certainly keep mine naked too! So, putting the skin is for its protection, and giving it a bit of flair at the same time.

    So you guys with skins, do you take your Pixelbook out of the house? I put a clear she'll on mine but I would love to switch to a skin. I'm just worried that it'll get dinged up in my backpack.

    I would worry about this too. Think I'd be more comfortable with sleeve that had some padding to it.

    I only transport my Pixelbook in a backpack (or my Solo Duane Briefcase/Backpack ) that has a separate padded slot for a laptop.

    You have the padding built into the back pack, good move. Should I ever do any "traveling" with my Pixelbook, I'd get a sleeve for it. Not just for protection from scratches etc., but also for added grip. I have my Pixel 3 in a case for these very reasons.

    Appreciate all your Pixelbook info JeepMan.

    That Solo Duane is my "overnight" gearbag of sorts. I also use this sleeve.

    I was never a fan of sleeves until I found that one. The retractable handle made all the difference.

    Thanks! There's so much that the Pixelbook can do, and the mainstream tech media doesn't "get it", so we're only going to get support and encouragement from among ourselves.

    Along with applying a matte screen protector, I decided to apply a skin.

    I love the combination of glass, aluminum, and wood. It definitely has a mid-century vibe to it (and maybe mid'1970's electronics as well)

    Since I tend to be a wee bit clutzy at times, I've been looking at this case. Maybe by the time they get it back in stock my mind will be made up.
