I have a 15" MBP Unibody coming my way and while researching my last laptop purchase 3 years ago I remember recommendations that people use a protector when closing the screen.

That time I opted for a Thinkpad and ended up buying a Shaggy Mac because the trackpoint left a mark on the screen if the laptop was squeezed, as in a backpack.

Do the new Unibodies with their glass screen need this same protection when the laptop is closed?

Another question: I also bought an SF Bag for my MBP (which has been great for my Thinkpad). Does anyone know if the bag's dimensions allow for a shell around the MBP while in the SF Bag?

I don't use a screen protector on my MBP unibody - nothing touches the screen while the lid is closed.

Can't comment about the bag. Just check out the dimensions of it and then the dimensions of the shell.
