Mmmm, well, can't say it's as much as I had hoped for. It doesn't cover all the the iBook, and actually leaves out the important (to me) areas, like the sides, etc. But those would have been a pain in the ass to cover.

The spiffy:
My mousepad, mouse button, and area surrounding the keyboard are all covered with the shiny and very smooth plastic stuff. The stuff in general's very sticky, but doesn't leave any marks coming off. It's also static-y, and fun to run hands over~ Mmm, anyways, back to the spiffy: my mouse and wrist-placed area will be free of marks for a good while.
The underside of the iBook will also be free from desk scratches (curse the small desks we have here. In class, anyways.)

The bad:
While the pieces were cut to decent precision, it's not as exact as I had hoped. Like, some parts stick out slightly, and other parts don't cover as much. Or it could have been because I had been a bit off, or stretched it a bit when applying-reapplying.
It's very, VERY hard to apply. Due to the static, it'll cling like mad, and if you want to make sure it's decently bubble free, you have to do it a bit at a time. No, not easy to apply at all.

I've got one more large piece that I'm going to hold on to. As well as the part that would have covered the keyboard (you weren't suppose to apply that, it would just be where the keyboard would be. If that makes any sense at all.). And several circles where the legs were. I also need to take out the holes covering my speakers. Mmmm... yeah, right, train of thought just derailed, so I'm going to bed like a good little kitten. ::yawns:: I've got pictures of the sheets, but you can't really tell much, 'cause they're very glossy. and transparent. I DO like the new feel to the mousepad though... it's already a bit worn, so there's glossier (more rubbed) areas to the pad, and now I no longer have to worry about rubbing it. There's only the keyboard left to worry about. Oh, my space bar...

What about the top of the iBook?

Should I get it?

Mmmm, I'm leaving it off right now, because it's a pain to put on nicely. And I'm not too sure I'll be able to center it perfectly.

I don't know. I'm not recommending it right now because.. well, I dunno. You can take a look at it and decide if you like it or not. I'll be back the 20th.

Okay.

I'll check it out then . . . if I do get it, it'll be the black one, so keep that in mind with the rec or not.

Mmm, well, if they give you the same sheets of coverage paper, then black would look kinda strange, since right now, it doesn't completely cover the iBook. Especially the top and bottom. Like, there's still a cm (maybe slightly less) of white space between the covered area and the edge. :\

Aw, you went for just the transparent version? I wanted to see a pink iBook. ^_^

Maybe it's just me, but I quite like Bunny's well-worn space bar - there's a small patch, slightly right of center, which is now perfectly smooth and shiny. It shows it's been loved. ^_^ (And to think, it's its second keyboard, too. The first one's ribbon cable eventually gave out, as I'd been fiddling with the memory so often at one point that, apparently, a tiny fault must've developed.. and of course, the ribbon's not a separate part, so a complete replacement of the keyboard was called for)

o.O keyboard replacements. Was it expensive to get it replaced?
