    I just ordered MBPR and won't get till mid July. I don't like to use a case. I want to see the beautiful design yet I want to protect it from scratch... Do you guy use Zagg or any other kind of protection? Which one is good?

    I like the feeling of skin to skin. Those zagg thing change the textures and feel

    LOL. I prefer a naked Mac myself. Depends on your likelihood of dropping for otherwise marring the surface though. My MBP is always in a safe environment and I'm careful.

    A sleeve to protect it in-bag is all I've ever used. I don't apply any sort of skins or other things to the machine's surfaces themselves.

    Wrapsol skin is the best. Used on three mbps.

    I use a sleeve and a bookbag, but when actually using it my RMBP goes naked. :)

    I always cover in best skins ever products (outside only). I find the bear frame too slippy and I own a factory which is a very dirty place.

    Never, with any Mac part of the experience is how the machine looks and feels wrapping it up in plastic is definitely not for me...

    I've never scratched any unibody product, all I use is a sleeve for when I travel with it.

    I had Zagg on my iPhone. After a while, I ended up removing it. The only thing I use is the apple bumper. It shows the iPhone beauty. The MBP has beautiful unibody case. I am just afraid that it will get scratch up. I will be bringing back and forth home and office every day. I guess, if I worry too much, I will have to get some thing that I can take out and put back as I feel like. Is there a good super thin case anyone can recommend? Thanks everyone for sharing your thought on the protection subject.

    I put a neoprene sleeve on my MBP and raw dog it when in use.

    I will be doing the same with my Retina MBP.

    Does anyone have pictures of their mac in a wrapsol or bestskins I am curious to how it looks? Thanks

    PS does it make the track pad more slippery or easier to use in your eyes?

    I thought it was a typo, but I just realize that you are trying to make the word 'condom' a verb. Let's not do that.

    I feel like if you were to drop a computer, a case isn't going to help much since it weighs so much.

    I like feeling the cool aluminum uni-body touching my skin.

    I have everything Apple naked. Its too pretty to cover up, Only thing I use is an incase sleeve for my MBP when putting it in my backpack with other stuff. Other than that, Have never used anything on it and looks as good as new.

    PS
    just read you mentioned MBPr haha sorry!
