    Hey All,

    The "Apple MacBook Pro 15" Total Body Skin" from best skins ever was released today. It is on sale for $22.99 ($26.99 regular price) for the next 2 days (see link). What are people's experience with these skins with the macbook, and how well do they protect the laptop?

    I've had it on my phone, camera and both my Macbooks. I love it!

    I was actually wondering when BSE was going to release this. Good price too! Twice as cheap as SZ and you don't need the lifetime warranty. I haven't had to replace the BSE skin on either of my electronics and its already been 6 months (for the Blackberry).

    Just be sure to take your time and follow the instructions carefully! I can't stress this enough. Many complain that the invisible skin sucks, etc but that's cause they didn't read and follow the instructions.

    I've heard users have had problems with those peeling off easily though.

    Like what? Having a gooey residue? I've had to remove and reapply the invisible skin for my Blackberry and it left no residue. Could be because they didn't follow the instructions which left the edges to collect gunk. Then when they had to take off the skin, there's the goo! (gunk).

    I don't see why the full body skins can only be shipped to the US and Canada, when the other ones can be shipped overseas.

    Oh well, looks like Invisible Shield gets my money then.

    How do these compare to the invisible shields?

    Exact same material, just 50% of the price. :)

    I'm less interested in protecting the surface of the computer as much as giving the outer surface a little 'tack' so it doesn't slip out of my hands when carrying it from room to room. The shell is just to slick, and I am paranoid about it slipping. Does this 'Skin' have more grip to its surface than the alum shell of the MBP?

    Definitely. I placed a small piece of 'skin' on the battery of my phone just to have better grip.

    It comes in a giant tube, so I guess they want to avoid customs fees and whatnot.
