    Does anyone know if there are clear, plain, protective skins available for the Macbook? Similiar to those adhesive skins for the iPods?

    D'oh! Found something just after I posted. Looks like BestSkinEver have the perfect thing I'm looking for.

    Anyone got any experience using them for their Macbook?

    Looks like I made mistake. BestSkinEver don't appear to deliver the skin I like to the UK, which rules them out. I then tried Invisisble Shield, and was happy to see they do deliver to the UK ... but at a very high rate. For the Skin and delivery, the total came to $110. Seems awfully steep to me, so opted out.

    Anyone from the UK know of any UK retail outlets selling a similiar product?

    Sorry i keep bombing this thread, but if you have a black macbook, DONT buy the applepeelz one, the website warns it is very hard to apply to the matte finish.

    Techshell

    I ordered the shieldzone, and paid for the extra postage to Australia and if I had to 'do it all over again' I would have purchased this instead:

    When I bought my MB the price of the shieldzone didn't sound too bad considering I paid just over AU$2200 for the laptop, but I think the techshell would do a better job of 'protecting' the MB and its easier to remove/replace.

    The shieldzone works as advertised and I love it, but if I had the choice I would have got the techshell. Unfortunately it wasn't available when I got my MB.

    There's a similar product from Speck but I'm a little weary about them b/c all their product shots for the MB 13" are of the MBP version (how can a company think it's okay to show photos for a product and sell another?). And I can not find any reviews on the MB version. Something fishy is going on?

    Ive seen the speck one in the store for macbooks and it is actually very high quality. The next time im at the apple store, which is about an hour away from me, i will probably buy one
