    Smile What would you do?
    I recently bought a new Macbook (yay!) and now have converted to the Mac side for good. Naturally I want to protect my baby from any harm. I bought a speck clear case for it, but after seeing reviews that it still scratches the delicate surface, I was going to buy something like bestskinsever or invisible shield to put on as well. It that over kill? What would you do? Any advide would be great, first hand preferable.

    Also does anyone know where I can buy a touch pad protectors? Everything I have found so far comes with a wrist guard (which I already have). Thanks everyone!!

    Just Bought a New Macbook...and lovin' it!
    So I finally took the plunge and bought a mac for the first time....and It's amazing! I want to protect it, and since the white plastic is VERY prone to scratching I bought a Speck clear case ( www.speckproducts.com). I was looking at their reviews and I noticed a lot of people said they still found scratches even with the case on it. So I was thinking of buying something like bestskinsever (www.bestskinsever.com) or the invisible shield (www.invisibleshield.com) along with the hardshell case. What do you think? Is it overkill? Please let me know because I want to protect it as soon as possible. thanks all.

    I just got my MacBook Pro so I know the feeling. I am also thinking about an invisible shield or something like that so I'll be watching this thread too.

    Try one of these: http://goincase.com/products/detail/...sleeve-cl57077

    I use one when transporting my Mac and feel it does a good job. You can cut out the tag on the inside so it's even less likely to scratch your new Mac. Unless you just have to have the Mac in pristine condition, a sleeve will probably work for you.

    you will probably think I am the biggest dork ever...but i already have one. I carry my macbook a lot but i also whip it out for class, work, and at home on the couch... so pretty much non stop mac action. I already have scratches on the bottom and it's only like a week old. I prefer to also have something that covers my macbook while using it since that's when most of the scratches will come from. thanks for the help though

    We had an invisible shield on my wife's macbook for a year. The top was fine but the bottom had dark yellow marks on it almost like the shield was overheating or something. Wierd cause it wasn't over the entire shield, it was just in certain areas. It did protect the bottom from scratches and stuff, but the yellowing kinda freaked me out.

    do you think that it would be fine to put the invisible shield on my macbook, and then my speck case on top?

    Need some help...


    I just bought a macbook last week and started noticing scratches on the bottom. I ordered a speck case (www.specproducts.com) but a lot of people say they actually scratch their macbook more than protect it. I want a hardshell case but don't want it to damage my computer. So...should I get something like invisible shield to protect my macbook in case the hardshell case will scratch it? I already have a neoprene case because I haul it around in my bag every day but still want the protection when I am using it as well. Let me know what y'all think.

    I agree with Chimpur... I have the Black MacBook and pretty much Scratch free since I got it.

    But I think it would be over kill with both the Case and the Shield... Good Luck anyways.

    Cheers

    To be honest I have to agree, I have a MB I love and cherrish & to be honest it get's thrown around and put through ****.

    I have so many surface scratches on it.. But none that you can even see unless you hold it up against the light.

    I also own a PB and its worse being aluminum, honestly, im relieved to use my MB and be able to get a bit rough with it.

    You'll find after time that you will bump and knock it around a bit and realize its not as weak as it seems lol.

    It can take a bit of a battering..

    They have some Apple protection packs that might interest you tho..

    Hope that helps.

    Any time. Also have a good look on eBay esp at international seller's they seem to stock a lot of film protection for MB trackpad's ect..

    You might find a cheaper option there.
