    Hey I was watching Neighbours and saw a cool MBP cover.

    It's a shell and I looke them up on eBay and they are cheap (even though the red one has a cut out for the apple logo and I'd prefer it to shine through the plastic instead) but does the laptop not overheat being trapped In a plastic case?

    As long as the back vent remains open it will be fine.

    So do I just make sure the top and bottom Sections are separate parts?

    I've never seen any casing that wasn't two separate parts. You should be fine with anything really, none should cover the back hinge.

    Are you getting it for protection or just for the k00l l00x?
    If you're wanting a case that is actually good and will protect, I would go with an InCase or Speck, the e-Bay ones are cheap and won't really protect very well. I would personally buy a used Speck or InCase shell over a brand new e-Bay 3rd party one.

    I'd love to go cover less but on my last MBP I scratched the bottom and also dropped a DS Lite on the lid which caused a dent so I'm just looking to prevent that again :(
