I felt like the back of my MacBook Pro looked a bit too plain, so I added this skin (see attached).

Looks great. Have you been happy with the computer?

It's not really available anywhere commercially. I just made a custom skin myself at decalgirl.com

Very happy with the MacBook Pro. No "true" complaints beyond price and wishing I could future proof it a bit more with a 32 GB RAM option.

 

Having said that, though, the lack of a MagSafe connection came back to bite me today as the MBP went flying onto my kitchen floor after first bouncing off our metal and stone bakers rack. I now have a couple of minor little nicks on the top edge of my screen. Fortunately, the screen didn't break, and everything seems to be working normally. Makes me want to consider getting one of those breakaway cords from Griffin, though.

"wishing I could future proof it a bit more"

Clearly not expecting it to last to accordance XIII though!

Oh, I'm sure it would be fine with every version of Accordance through the next couple of decades based on past precedent. Accordance has never been a performance issue for me.

I think the Griffin breakaway BreakSafe would be a very smart move!  I had wondered about the power connection issue.

The only thing about the griffin breaksafe is it comes undone way too easily. Also does not charge as fast...hopefully they release a better model soon. I returned mine because of those issues.

Shalom! In Christ, Keith.
