    Hello all,

    I ordered my MBP 15.4 inch last Saturday and anxiously awaiting the confirmation that was sent. Anyways, in the time being, I have been looking for some cases for it, as well as a screen protector and some type of Palm guard. I was just looking for some input on good products that keep my MBP looking new!

    I really haven't seen anything that has a better price or better protection. I have them for my 15" and I have never worried about the case, wristguard, or trackpad.

    I got a palm guard from moshi ( It will change the feel of the trackpad a bit but not in a bad way. And it is very discrete. So far I have been happy with it. It also has the added advantage of making my screen close more tightly (since there is less room between the screen and the laptop). I don't think it is putting any strain on the locks.

    As for the case, I am very happy with the one from maxupgrades. It is made of memory foam and is thus flexible but more solid than neoprene. Has worked quite well so far although I have not tested it (like dropped my laptop to see if it resists :)).

    I personally like the Waterfield Designs sleeves from They are really well made, nicely padded, and I can carry the MB in a standard backpack or bag and not have it scream "laptop inside - steal me!". Their customer service cannot be beat, and the sleeves can be customized to your liking with flaps, straps, etc. Good luck!

    I like the STM sleeves, either the glove or rebound will fit it. (I have the rebound for mine, features polyurethane foam interior for extra protection + cooling).

    The Gecko cases are also nice:

    Also try the Speck Snap-On Case for the macbook pro. Meant to be extremely good, but the only problem is that once you get them on, they're meant to be extremely hard to get off. That's if you ever wanted it off.

    In my opinion, after having used thin neoprene laptop skins, to bulky notebook bags, I have found a winner in the Vertical Brain Cell. This bag keeps me from worrying about my beautiful SR MBP and looks sharp without overdoing it. Highly recommend it.

    I just applied the Best Skins Ever.full body skin. It looks great and went on with minimal fuss. I look at my macbook pro now and think of it as being a little more rugged. I feel much better knowing it's on there, that plastic is tough.

    I don't like how it requires water and soap applied to make it go on easier but I was very careful and it's why it looks so good. I am going to let it set up completely for 48 hours. My biggest concern is what the skin will do to the MBP temperature. I think it may trap the heat which would bother me.

    The Speck cases are nice but have an issue with small bits of dirt getting inside causing scratches so I went with this solution. You wouldn't know anything was there unless you look for the skin. My other concerns are if it will turn colors or start to lift off in the future.

    My Macbook Pro has the Speck SeeThru Case and it makes me feel so safe taking it anywhere that it is protected.
