Hello there.

I bought a MacBook (May model) two days ago, but unfortunately haven't had the time to open it (work + university).

Anyways, a friend of mine acquired one as well just recently (a week ago), and by the looks of it, it gets dirty and it's easily scratchable, which means it's too late for him, and about time for me to get a protection against those issues, be it by knowledge (how to clean it, how to carry it, etc.) or by hardware (InCase Hardshell Case, Speck SeeThru Hard Shell Case, etc.).

So, what I humbly ask of you, are suggestions on both: how to treat my new best friend, and what protection item should I get for it.

I'm a Mac first-timer, so please bear with me while I keep digging about this beautiful world.

Thanks in advance!

Plastic will scratch up pretty easily. I have a late-2009 MacBook unibody.

If you keep it pretty much white, you shouldn't have problems, but for most people, dirt is dirt. So, I recommend these:

SeeThru MacBook 13" New-White

Your local Apple Store might have them in stock as well.

 iPad Air 2 - iOS 9 Beta
 iPhone 6 64GB - iOS 9 Beta
 Mac mini Server M10 - OS X 10.10.5
 MacBook Uni L09 - OS X 10.11 Beta
QUOTE Thanks
