    I plan to buy a Macbook for college in the coming month and I'm curious as to how to fully protect it. As of now I want to get an Applesac sleeve, Moshi Palmguard and Clearguard. I don't want to get a special laptop bag because I don't want to spend a lot of money. Is there anything else that I would need? I don't plan on carrying it around often, maybe to the library but not to class everyday. It would just be in my regular old Jansport backpack. Do you all think I would need a hard case or a screen guard? Maybe invisishield? This is my first laptop after using desktops my whole life so I'm kinda new to this :(

    Just a case, like the Incase Hardshell Case, or sleeve is all you need. If you don't plan to carry it around often anything more is a bit overkill. You don't need a special bag, Jansport makes good bags.

    What about keyboard guards, palm guards, screen guards and such? Are they necessary or do you think it would be a waste?

    Definitely unnecessary. It really depends on how accident-prone you are as well, but most ppl i know just have their laptops in a case or sleeve. That's it.

    Haha, it sounds like you're baby proofing your MBP or something.

    Seriously, a nice case or sleave should be fine. Just don't drop it or take an exacto to the screen.

    I'm just paranoid and reading these forums makes me even more paranoid :D:cool:. I'm reading about shiny worn keys and palm stains and scratches. I just want to keep it looking sexy as long as possible. I'm not clumsy or anything, its just that this my first Mac and my first laptop and I want to make sure that its safe and sound.
