I would love to see the option for maybe a Dark gray/black vinyl with the Pine logo in the middle.

Yes its simple, yes it would look like every other laptop. But for those of us who want a little more protection/customization.

Haha! Just before reading your suggestion, I was just thinking to myself "There will be a desire to have the logo involved, I should ask for a vector file of it."

That would be a quick one to setup!

Another question worth posing to the community, do we want to focus on just the lid, or should we look at including the areas around the keyboard/mouse, too? (The word for that piece slips my mind right now.)

Palm rest perchance?

Works for me!

Thinking about it more, though, it might just be something that's dependent upon the design. Simpler designs, especially the darker ones, wouldn't make sense to set up for the palm rest area. But for the crazy, colorful stuff (hoping to make at least one,) I think it'd be cool to make a skin that includes the palm rest plastic, and as much of the bottom case as possible.

@MrTester, for my own visualization, would it be fair to say that your suggestion would be similar to that of an old black MacBook lid, sans the light behind the logo?

Exactly. I figure this is commonly accepted as a decent looking style, and enough demand may be worth doing a sizable run. 

Also, the palm rest terminology may be interchangeable with bezel. I think that may be a nice advanced goal to get larger coverage around the unit.

Bezel! That's word I forgot.

I agree, it'd be simple and easily appeal to many. I'm wondering, though if we should drop the use of color from anything but the logo, and use a transparent vinyl (if there's a feasible one) to let the lid show through as the background color. It should allow for easy placement of the logo, keep much of the original appearance (with room the customize further), and protection from skin oil. I'm going to do a little digging into that, unless @krishorne5 already knows.

Fingerprints, hmm, what if you waxed it with a good paste car wax?

I would not cover the bottom of the case - that would interfere with heat dissipation.

We discussed this in another thread, per Luke, skinning the underside with a vinyl should not interfere with heat dissipation.

I think its a great idea to have dbrand-esque skins for this as wells as the PinePhone! Smile
