Cool! Call me boring, but I like the oak. It might match my TV stand. I wonder why they don't offer solid colors? I'm sure black would be a big seller.

The wood actually looks really good. I have an American Cherry wood and a Burlwood skin on two of my Xbox consoles. The high-definition printing and glossy finish look fantastic. I've never been a big fan of stickers before this company since I airbrush and prefer to paint my hardware, but the quality is pretty dang nice on these. Their iPod stickers are also really nice.

I'm guessing they don't offer solid colors because the skin only covers the top of the AppleTV - more interesting to have a design since it's only a top cover, I guess. I believe you can do custom requests but I've only bought pre-made designs in the past.

I think that set has the coolest skin for the remote. To be honest, though, I would be afraid to use one of the top skins. It may become permanently bonded or get all icky as hot as my Apple TV runs. Laughing

Burlwood skin

I almost bought a used Dell 8100 laptop with burlwood inserts in the palm rests and on the back of the display a long time ago. The burlwood skin they offer for the Apple TV looks cool too. As you can tell, I'm kind of a sucker for wood grains. I even have a cool little cedar chest on my computer desk that I keep all of my iPod stuff in.

Just FYI, I've put a number of these stickers on Xbox consoles and they can still be peeled off easily, even after a year. I think they use magic glue or something Shocked

The wood stickers are really classy. My American Cherry wood skin looks awesome on my Xbox in my living room (as awesome/classy as you can make an Xbox look, lol).

I think that is the general consensus after seeing these posted around. Heck, I just got over the fear of leaving my Apple TV plugged in when I leave home. Laughing
