    Has anybody gotten the Vyper M3 sleeve yet for the 15" Unibody MBP? If so how is it? I worry that the zipper teeth or the zippers itself would scratch the MBP when placing it in and taking out of the sleeve.

    I don't know if you're set on that but my Incase neoprene sleev is great and I don't worry about the zipper.

    The zipper teeth are platic coated and dont scratch the aluminium laptop.

    I haven't seem the m3, but the m2 (sized for the last-gen MBP) has a kind of rolled edge around the lip that prevents the zipper from contacting the surface of the computer.

    i have the M2 for an early 08 mbp and i like it. the build ought to be similar for the M3. i am not fickle about the scratches on the case (it is a use it, not baby it) but i am careful about it getting bumped around too much since my messenger bag, a chrome metropolis and timbuk2 deedog, both do not have any padding for laptops. the last thing i need is for the HD to get screwed up from unintentional bumps. having said that, for those that ARE fickle about scratches, i haven't gotten any outside what you would get from regular use since the case is well designed to keep the zipper from marring the finish. the case provides good protection but i wouldn't go as far to say that it would sufficiently protect the case against drops. i've owned tons of laptops and i ain't about to start dropping them to find out what might happen to my data.

    i don't know if you can use a hardshell and protector on the mbp and still use the m2 is a pretty snug fit in there and i don't know how much bulk a snap on protective case would add to the existing dimensions.
