iStyles5/Not 100% what I expected.J. Holmboe, United States, 10 May 2017
I was disappointed that the trackpad wasn't covered with a decal. Also I must have misread the description of the keyboard cover, I didn't realize that they were individual stickers.
iStyles5/I love the skins. However I am disappointed that there is no skin for the base of the Macbook Air. I messed up the skin for the keyboard and did not want to spoil the skin by pulling it out again. Wish it is easier to center it right and apply without bubbles.L. Liu, Hong Kong, 16 May 2016
Thank you for the review. We're glad that you like the MacBook Air 13-inch Skins but sorry to hear that you accidentally messed up the inner Skin for one of them.
The MacBook inner Skins are precision cut to cover the area around the keyboard - the complexity and large size of this surface does make Skin alignment a little more tricky but the final effect when it's done properly is well worth the effort. What we generally do during Skin application is to first align the Skin to the major physical cutouts, and in this case, that will be the trackpad area. Peel the whole inner Skin off and start with the bottom half; hold the Skin at both ends of the wrist rest area and gently position until it aligns perfectly to the trackpad. One trick will be to keep the top half (the thin stripes that go beside the keyboard) folded back over the bottom half such that the stripes do not get stuck on your MacBook when you're positioning the bottom half. Once you've aligned the trackpad, everything else will fall in place with a little guidance.
Do not press the Skin down until you are happy with the alignment - this makes it easier to reposition the Skin if the first alignment attempts fail.
When you're happy with the alignment, start pressing the Skin down firmly from the inside out so that bubbles will not get caught. Even if bubbles do get caught, they can be pressed out with a finger as the Skin comes with a special weaved adhesive that allows for air pockets to be "massaged" out.
We can get another replacement inner Skin made for you to give the Skin application another go at no charge and you just have to cover the shipping cost to get this new package to you.
If you would like to go for this replacement, please send us an email at [email protected] to let us know which MacBook Air 13-inch Skin was spoil (you purchased two) and we'll set up the replacement order for you. Or if you would like to place an order for something else (matching cases for your phone? We also sent a discount via email), let us know the order number and we'll add the replacement inner Skin to it.
The Outer/Inner Combo MacBook Air 13" Skin sets will cover the lid and area around the keyboard on your MacBook but they will not include a bottom Skin. You can technically purchase another "Outer lid" Skin and make cuts manually for the rubber feet on the bottom of your MacBook but we will not recommend doing so. The unibody construction of the MacBook acts as a heat sink and helps to dissipate heat during operation. If the bottom area is covered, the MacBook will not be able to "breath" as well, resulting in higher operating temperatures that can cause reduced performance and shorten electronics lifespan.
We recommend using the Skin for styling and scratch protection - when you need to transport the MacBook, put it in a padded sleeve (like the one you purchased too) or bag. The bottom of the MacBook does not require a Skin as it's usually facing a surface (eg, on a table), it does not come into direct contact with this surface (will not get scratched) because of the rubber feet on the bottom and people rarely see this surface as it's either on the table or packed in a bag.
iStyles5/iStyles is great, except for one thing - they use USPS to ship orders. In my case, "two-day priority" shipment took more than a week to arrive - the order addressed to a Virginia address came to Pennsylvania and then was diverted to Alabama (??) before making its way to Virginia. As a result, the package missed my kid's birthday and obviously didn't have the effect it was meant to. iStyles should probably drop USPS and use commercial carriers (without 50% premium to the item price). If you order from iStyles, make sure you do so at least two-three weeks in advance - it also takes some time to make an item before it ships.E. GRINYOV, United States, 27 April 2015
We're sorry to hear that the package missed your kid's birthday.
We have different shipping options available, ranging from USPS First-class that starts from just $2 but takes between 1 to 3 weeks for delivery, to UPS Express that takes just 1 business day for delivery but can be costly (because they are a private courier service). The USPS Priority shipping option that you selected is a good compromise between the two as it only cost a few dollars more than First-class but they're still relatively quick. Ignore the "2-day" claim on USPS' website as that is misleading and we never advertise it as such - USPS Priority usually takes between 3 to 5 business days for delivery and the "estimated shipping date" that we quote at checkout on our site reflects this turnaround time.
1 to 2 business days are indeed required for the production of an order as all Skins and Cases are freshly baked and ship directly from the production facility. Your order was received on Thursday night (2 April), the warehouse was close over the weekend, the package was shipped on Monday morning (6 April) and delivered on the Monday after (13 April). This is within the estimated delivery time quoted when you checked out. If you placed the order a day earlier (on Wednesday), you probably would have avoided hitting both weekends - the package would have shipped on Friday and would have been delivered between 8 to 10 April.
We're sorry that the package did not make it for your kid's birthday but I hope that he still likes his new MacBook Air Skin.
iStyles5/Nice Website, Crummy Product. It was hard to put on and looks crappy. you can't take it off to adjust it because it stretches.It's also too small and the edges aren't covered.K. Rea, United States, 18 June 2014
Thank you for the feedback. We're sorry to hear that you had problems with the Skin application. Skins are sturdy and will usually outlast the device if applied properly but they can stretch if pulled too hard during the application process. The inner MacBook Skins are more difficult to apply as you've experienced because of their large size and thin stripes, but the final result will be well worth the effort. The trick is simply not to press the Skin down until you are happy with the alignment, and to peel off gently if you need to reposition, especially so at the thin Skin areas (such as those around the trackpad).
We can make another Skin for you at no charge and you just have to cover the shipping charge to get this new Skin to you. Let us know if this is what you want and we'll get this set up. We've sent you an email regarding this matter.
iStyles5/After spending about an hour on the site, I finally had a few choices to compare. My daughter loved one, so we got that style for her DS and I got a different style for my Mac Air. Both arrived quickly and the installation was a snap. I had absolutely no trouble putting these on their devices. Thanks for the great service.A. Walker, United States, 17 June 2014
iStyles5/Excellent serivce, quick delivery, but not what I had expected. It lloks good on my computer, but I had expected the skill to go all the way to the edge of the computer top, and the decal astops short. Still, its worth the price.A. Vasishth, United States, 20 February 2013
iStyles5/The ordering was simple and easy (once you manage to choose from the thousands of different styles). The fitting of the ordered products was perfect for the the two MacBook Airs, but not perfect for my HTC One X.B. Alverborg, Sweden, 4 January 2013
I can recommend spraying a fine mist of water on large surfaces before applying the skins. That way it is easy to adjust it right after the application. When it is perfect, just use a soft cloth to work out all the air pockets and water, starting from the center and working towards the edges. After everything is smooth, leave the product alone for some hours before using it. Works like a charm!
iStyles5/I received my order and was absolutely thrilled. Some items were gifts for my sister and now we are ready to order again. We love it. Great Value for money and prompt delivery to Australia. Truly Fantastic and great quality and looks better than on the net. RoseR. Kilpatrick, Australia, 3 November 2012
