    What do you do to protect your MBP? I am looking to get the Zagg film and a sleeve. I am just curious what you use.

    I don't quite remember the name of my protector, but it is a plastic film that I bought from Frys for like 20 bucks. It works great and definitively protects it from scratches! Also, when I use my MBP I have a silicon keyboard cover! Although I don't close it because it imprints on screen, so If i need to I take it off before I close it.

    I have a neopreen sleeve and my Ogio sling has a compartment for my laptop that is well padded!

    I close mine a lot because i move about and it tends to leave the imprint of the keys on the screen. Is this normal?

    I dont do anything really. Got it through apple care for next to nothing so for once I am not babying the hell out of it. Pretty relaxing. :)

    I bought a MBP last week and picked up the canvas version of the incase sleeve at the Apple store for $49. This is thicker than the regular incase sleeve and water resistant. At first it is a very tight fit but after a few days it fit like a glove.

    Weather resistant =/= water resistant

    What does that have to do with me getting a brand new MBP for $500?

    I have a Wrapsol cover and carry it around in a Targus V7 backpack.

    I have the Speck See Thru Satin Red cover on it. It protects it very nicely. I might get a backpack with a neoprene compartment for the laptop or I might get a neoprene sleeve and then use that sleeve with my current backpack.

    I quite enjoy using my MBP "naked" so I do not have any sort of cover or film that is on the MBP while it is in use.

    However, I have a Waterfield Sleevecase for when it is not in use and I can't be happier.

    Wrapsol and moshi palmguard/keyboard skin. That's it. I think cases are too bulky from experience.
