I'm always a fan of the interaction between nature and technology...and nothing quite captures that interaction like an attempt to warm up the sleek designs of tech gear with a little warmth from the natural world: like my own project the tree branch iPhone dock or the tree limb magnets for your sleek kitchen appliances, or this great handmade wooden iPod.
So, I think this very inexpensive technique for creating a woodgrain skin for your laptop is pretty top notch. Of course, the shape is rather complex, so a full coverage is a bit more difficult, but I bet with careful measuring and cutting, you could create a template to cover the entire case.
