The one aspect of a MusicSkin that might cause people to balk is the price. Most skins range from $15-$30, with the higher price reserved for laptop adornments. If you are someone who is of the moment and tends to change favorites often, keeping up with skins can ring up quite a bill. Given that they are also not meant to be used more than once, you might find it hard to stomach throwing away something you bought for $15 on a whim.
However, if you tend to stick with artists and enjoy them for a long time, getting a MusicSkin is affordable, and as I mentioned, if you mean to keep your MusicSkin for some time then sorting through the website carefully before choosing is critical. For now, I imagine I’ll be watching the Beatles cross Abbey Road for awhile.
A MusicSkin is a visually pleasing way to express yourself through technology—and it's a conversation starter.
