    New MacBook Pro Screen Coating.

    Can anyone tell me if they have a new MBP and is the screen coating still intact? I am about to buy a new MBP but my experience of my 2013 MBP worries me that the issue with the screen coating is still there (it makes the screen so horrible). Thanks in advance. P.

    Any way to coat the I pad with Plasti Dip?

    I’ve never used Plasti Dip, but I often see cars on the road that look like they’ve been almost entirely coated with Plasti Dip. Is this something that can be done to the iPad?
