    I have the speck case. It adds some bulk but it's not too bad, definately worth the protection it provides. I can pretty much toss it into my bag and set it down on the table less-than-gently. I also struck the case a few times with absolutely no damage to the exterior (cleaned it last week). The clear one (all of them ,really) will also allow you to do a bit of non permanent customization; i've done so with designs printed on transparencies placed inbetween the case and the MBP. It's not so much as to prevent scratches (though my machine has absolutely zero scratches on the body) but to prevent impact damage, which it has done flawlessly.

    Precisely, MBP's already run hot enough without exacerbating it by adding another layer to retain the heat.

    Personally, I think putting cases on Blackberries (Androids and iPhones are okay) draws the line.

    I use it naked by transport it in an incase sleeve inside a backpack. I couldn't imagine cloaking it's beauty in some plastic skin or hard case while using it. :)

    I really need to get out more. LOL

    lol! I can see why not everyone likes them, I often look at ones without a case and think they look great. I also really like the green though and it gives it a bit more protection when putting it in my bag.

    whatever suits your likes and dislikes ... a case will help keep your MBP in good condition and may help prevent scratches or dents. It will not cause any performance issues like some may think.

    being careful is your best prevention.

    I use a clear Speck case and it has prevented a few scrapes that would have marked my MBP

    Yes. These things are ubiquitous and there is no particular need to put mine on display or to make a statement. I also don't have any need to show the glowing logo so I am just as happy to have the protection.

    My MBP is naked all the time. I only put it in a Waterfield sleeve when traveling.

    I agree --- just got my Waterfield Designs sleeve that I plan to use when I am out and about, and I couldn't be happier with this setup.

    Nope, I think scratches, scuffs, marks, dents etc etc just builds more character hah ;)

    Nope. I had a case when I had my old white Macbook, but I didn't like the extra weight/thickness it added, plus it wouldn't open as wide, so I'm keeping my MBP caseless.
