    Here's my Surface RT with a skin from Decalgirl.com. I ordered the matte finish because I wanted to minimize the fingerprints. I only applied the skin on the rear. The order comes with a skin for the front bezel; however, I did not like the appearance of the matte finish in combination with the screen's shiny surface (pun intended).

    Can you elaborate on the disappearing of the logo, do you mean it's rubbing off??

    I picked up a wood one from Skinomi that includes a clear screen cover as well. Went on VERY easily and works perfectly.

    Amazon.com: Skinomi TechSkin - Microsoft Surface Windows RT Screen Protector Ultra Clear Shield + Dark Wood Full Body Protective Skin + Lifetime Warranty

    Damn good price too!

    If it is rubbing off (I have seen the images) it isn't an etching. Its a decal. Or paint.

    That is awesome! I thought about getting that one. But it was for my wife's RT. I think that will be perfect for when I pick up my own Surface for school this summer. :)

    That is nice!!! I want one now, lol. I usually don't like to personalize my devices because I mostly use the in a professional environment, I will look for a sleek one that I can.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Bump for some other skins. I found this one that includes a free 920 skin as well. I'm having a hard time making up my mind on these but I want some scratch protection for the back.

    The decalgirl one's look pretty sweet, I like the fact that they have matching wallpapers.
