    I'm looking for something that will protect the entire body of my MBP from scratches without the clunkiness of a plastic shell. I was looking at the Invisible shield Full Body Coverage http://www.invisibleshield.com/laptop/apple/macbook-pro-15-inch.php but it's 55 bucks! It's a piece of lamination, come on! Is there something similar from a cheaper brand that's just as good?

    bestskinsever.com, exact same product for half the price. I have one for my blackbook and I love it.

    There is a thread floating around about IS on sale. Just search "invisible shield" and one of those threads has a link to the IS website with 50% off.

    Edit: Here you go: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=457865&highlight=invisible+shield
    Click on the link (the first reply), scroll down to "laptops" on the left, choose your type of laptop, and there should be prices displayed for 50% off. I am debating on buying one now...

    they're priced almost the same. the difference is that IS charge 8 bucks for shipping and bestskins 2 bucks. so all in all i payed 28.99 for a full body best skins cover!

    I'm surprisedyou don't complain mbp itself is too exp.? Did my research, invisible shield is best quality although I just wrap mine in cloth not in use.

    Invisible Shield rocks

    I've got an invisibleShield for my Nano and it's BRILLIANT.
    If you want military-grade protection, this is the one. Can't even scratch it with a key.

    I don't know about the other brands, but mine works & I never have to worry about where I put it & whether anything will scratch it. That peace of mind is worth paying for.

    I would be interested in hearing how you get on with other brands & if you have to take them off, whether they leave a mess behind etc.
