    forgive me for starting a new thread. i posted on this on another thread but it seems to have died (or so it seems). I'm new to macs and i've a few concerns after reading a couple of threads regarding rmbp accessories. hope you'll bear with me. :)


    Anyone here with reviews (both good and bad)? i've been rather apprehensive about it cos it's a wet application type. afraid it'll trigger some of the water indicators in my mbp.:(


    between the SeeThru (satin/non0satin) and the SmartShell (satin/non-satin), i'm assuming the SmartShell is thinner, but is it significant? i'm looking for an outer case that doesn't add too much dimension (and hopefully weight too)

    Keyguard/Palm Guard

    does anyone have any issue with their rmbp when using key/palmguards? i've read that apple doesn't recommend that we use either cos of tight tolerances.

    Screen Protector

    forgive me for asking but do people actually use screen protectors for their mbp? haven't really heard anyone mentioning that they do as of yet. :confused:

    any help or advise is appreciated!

    You didn't mention why you wanted to buy accessories.

    What do you do with your laptop that makes you think having accessories is a must?

    I assume most of those accessories only protect from light cosmetic damage like scratches. IMO scratched metal looks better than metal with a plastic cover.

    Keyguard/Palm Guard:

    Screen Protector: There are also threads on this but ill give you my input. Yes there are probably hundreds that installed this on their rMBP. The issue is, is that the spacing between the screen and keyboard is very small and even Apple has said that nothing should be placed in between. People have reported scratches from palm guards on the screen and screen protectors cause the screen to become wedge. IMO, I dont suggest either. Just clean your MBP daily to get rid of oily residue and smudges and it will stay like new.
