    When I first got my MBP I saw a real high quality skin that was multiple pieces and had the contours of the computer. I didn't get it at the time and now I really regret it. I just got my wife a new 15" MBP and I want to make sure to get one since she's super hard on computers.

    What's consensus on the best quality one out now?

    I use a Wrapsol full body skin. Looks great and it has a nice texture. It works very well against scratches, but doesn't offer much "drop" protection.

    It's made to be used & enjoyed. No funky stuff required.

    It's not funky, it helps with the resale value and gives the user a piece of mind, knowing that his or her new laptop isn't scratched up in some months. ;)
    Plus, it's invisible. Atleast for the most part.

    I'd go with these 3.
    Zagg
    BSE
    Wrapsol

    Zagg, is overpriced and is to glossy IMO, but if you have a promo code then it's worth it. (Glossy)
    BSE, is cheaper than most and still guarantees good quality (same as Zagg). BUT you have to make your own application solution, not to hard. (Glossy)
    Wrapsol, is good quality, little beat cheaper than Zagg and almost completely invisible, you won't notice it unless your like inches away from your laptop and they come in an anti-glare sort of color which makes it look like bare aluminum.

    There is a thread on how it looks.. lemmie look it up

    Sorry, don't know how to make a word a link


    Hope I helped ;)

    Best Skins Ever has always been easy to install, albeit I've never had to do it on a MacBook Pro.

    The WrapSol products are definitely well thought out, although a bit more confusing for installation. I'm also not sure how much truth there is in anything beyond simply just protecting from scratching.

    There is nothing beyond protecting from scratches that's as far as shields go, maybe a bit of dent protection but definitely no drop protection. :rolleyes:

    BSE, yes they're really easy with small devices, I've applied them on all my iPods with no trouble at all but it might be a whole different story when dealing with a larger skins specially beacause you must just your own solution and most newbies don't know how to make it correctly. :p

    I know for sure that when I get my MacBook Pro 2011, I'm putting on a Wrapsol MAYBE a Zagg, not yet sure and a hard case on it, I actually have a friend that has one that look's awesome on the laptop, it even makes it look better in my opinion ;)

    I can recommend a bestskinsever skin. I have one. This is my second skin. I loved my first so much that I got another one. Here is my review of the skin.
