I got my MBP back yesterday, pretty much brand new as they replaced the LCD screen, logic board, superdrive, etc (minus the battery & my HD & RAM). Included was a brand new aluminum unibody keyboard, and outer casing. What I love is that it looks brand new, as if I purchased it @ the Apple Store just last night...but of course i've owned my MBP for almost 2 years now.. But seeing my MBP look brand new, I can't help but think about protecting my MBP this time around. In a month i'll be in China & Japan for 6 months, so am thinking it may be best to actually protect my computer, but I wouldn't want to @ the behest of having a handicapped looking MBP. My buddy has one of these, but I think it takes away from the aluminum Apple, in my opinion: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Incase+...29&skuId=9396478&st=incase macbook&cp=1&lp=14 I don't know if it should get something for it, or just keep it the way it is.
