I knew that I wanted some sort of armor for my new $2500 toy, but at the same time I didn't want to rob the laptop of its good looks nor did I want to add any extra bulk either. my solution? body armor from www.bestskinsever.com - this stuff comes perfectly pre-cut to match your MB or MBP and it comes with a lifetime warranty. it's suppose to be extremely durable and as you can see from the pictures, its 100% clear. I absolutely love it. now I don't have to worry about getting any marks on the top or bottom part of my new MBP from the natural oils on my hands. this is something that drove me batty on my old black MB. I always found myself wiping that thing off 50 times a day. I was also concerned with the silver finish on the keypad area wearing over time from the palm of my hands. this won't be a problem now. okay, so here's a couple pictures: *a few things to note. this stuff is kind of easy, but kind of hard to install if you want that 100% perfection look (like I did). they say to use a soapy water mixture and to submerge the skin(s) in the mixture so it does two things. one, the water activates the adhesive which is what makes it stick to the surface of the MBP. it also allows you to move and slide the skin around so you get it just where you want it. you then just take a credit card to squeeze all the water out. the trick is to use some soapy mixture but obviously not too much. you damn sure wouldn't want excessive water dripping inside your beloved MacBook Pro laptop. you also have to spend some time on each one of the corners to make sure the areas that fold over stay put. installing the entire skin on my MBP took me every bit of three hours. it took me that long because I wanted to be sure everything looked and worked like its suppose to. as you can see, it did and I'm very happy with the results.
