Hey All,

Im new to the mac and and the mac forums, im going to be making the switch to a macbook pro 13" in the very near future. Im wondering if anyone can recommend some good accessories, I have been looking at the Moshi Palm Guard, Moshi Ivisor AG and a Speck seethru satin. Have any of you used the Palmguard and the Speck Seethru together, I have heard that the hard case will not go on without damaging the palm guard.

Any advice will be much appreciated!

Cheers
PacMan

+1 to the brenthaven. I've got the sling I and it's pwn for my 13 inch MBP and all of my recording accessories (cables and a couple mics and stuff).

I use the simple incase sleeve in combination with a soft briefcase and it seems to do the trick.

I am interested as to any input on the clear satin case you are referring to as well.

I've always been a proponent of "naked beauty"--I have no case on my iPhone, nothing on my alMB, etc. Apple's natural beauty doesn't need any dressing up

That's not very helpful, yes, but just my .02. Good luck finding a case that works.

For extreme protection, the Brenthaven bag is really nice. It is what my girlfriend uses (the $80 one) and its really solid. It has hard plastic inside, as well as plenty of foam padding around the plastic on both outside and inside. I spent $900 on a gucci briefcase and it doesn't do 5% the job the brenthaven does.

lol I used to do that... But then I dropped my iPhone a few too many times and it started getting pretty dinged up so i have a silicone case now... Makes it less slippery
If only I wasn't so clumsy
