OK, so I know there are a lot of case threads on these boards. As some people prefer hard cases and some prefer soft, they all end up becoming some variation of "there is no one best way to protect your mac, etc." I think they all start off with too vague a question like "what case is best". I was wondering if we could look at the case question from the other end: How did your Macbook Pro break/dent? Was it protected at the time? If not, would a hard case and/or soft case prevent the damage?
