i just sold my cr series sony vaio laptop days ago before i went for days off for i was wanting a new one. before i handed it to my buyer i took some pictures so i can let people who are planning to get their laptop “gmasked” have an idea on how it’ll look like after almost a year and a half.
actually it was still in good shape.
the film on the sides of the pad still intact.
here you can notice part of the film fraying.
same on the corners of the unit.
part near the speakers.
i think the film really protected the laptop from scratches and dust, and i had that laptop for almost a year and it took care of it.
