I am thinking about the Spec case.

Also, I am thinking about the Palm Rest guards for my macbook. Where can I find the best of these?

Anyone else have any cool accessories that we should all know about?

I got the a Total Skin from bestskinsever....
I had somewhat of an annoying time putting on the Bottom skin (the 1st skin I tried). You have to make a water+mild soap solution and dip the kin in it, then apple it to the bottom of your MacBook.. Eventually I got it down perfectly, and it looks great now (can't tell it's there) as it protects the underside of the MacBook from scratches.

I had planned on using the Palm-Rest and Trackpad skins as well. Instead I decided just to let it be, and if it gets dirty, I'll clean it.

I also applied the GelaSkins decorative skin to the top.. THESE are a wonderful product!!! No water, very well made, just peel and stick! (CLICK here to see pictures on my MacBook).

Today I am receiving from UPS the iSkin SOHO case/sleeve and the iSkin ProTouch keyboard cover... I'm excited about the case, but hesitant about how the keyboard cover will feel and work... I guess I'll find out soon.

You may want to do a search here regarding the Speck case... I have seen that a few people had issues with dirt getting between the speck case and the MacBook, resulting in some fairly bad scratched.

I use an iBreeze.

http://www.welovemacs.com/52999.html

It really helps get the air flowing under my macbook and it helps reduce temperatures of everything by 5-10 degrees F when in use.

Enjoy!

i can let you no that the Spec case is amazing!

i have a clear one for my MBP C2D and its the job, my mac is 6 months old now an theres not a scratch on it.

The case went on as soon as i bought it, £50 well spent.

oh i forgot to say, the spec case is also good as it just clips on to the body and the screen.
