There are three silver Mac laptops in our household and sometimes it’s not obvious which is which. Also, while at Google I got used to the notion that laptops shouldn’t be left naked. So I shopped around online and ordered a cover from DecalGirl. This is the picture I used.
It’s Doug McCallum’s workshop; he runs Blue Ocean Yacht Services here in Vancouver and fixes up our boat once a year. I thought there were a few things about the workshop that suggested what was under the cover inside the computer.
Putting the decal on requires a steady hand and cool nerves; mine is just slightly not straight, which irritates the hell out of me but is entirely invisible to the casual observer. I think it looks cool.
