    I wanted to pick up an invisible shield for my new 13' Macbook Pro and I just wanted to know what peoples experiences have been with it. Im just worried it can overheat because I was reading online and it said that could happen if I applied the invisible shield to it. Thanks :)
    Btw if anyone has an 50% off discount codes could you PM me please I would REALLY APPRECIATE IT ALLOT! Thanks

    Mate I got it on my MBP. Tbh I never noticed any overheating problems.. Although, I have to admit that I don't really do any "heavy" stuff on my notebooks... I think it is a handy and clean to provide scratch resistance etc. It is not as clunky as the hard cases.. However, the clunkier the case is, more protection it provides.. so.. its a personal thing I suppose.

    I see what your saying well I was originally gonna order a speck hardshell case for it but then i began to hear people complain that the bottom would get stuck with dust if you didn't clean it allot and it would leave permanent damage. SO thats why I was thinking of doing a invisible shield and hardshell case but i think that would damage my macbook pro wouldn't it because it wouldn't get ventilated right

    I also have a hard case.. indeed I've heard the "itchy and scratchy" stories with dust and other stuff inside hard cases... But, mate I think a common sense prevails.. take the notebook out and give a nice soft cloth (and/or iKlean) clean every now and then..

    I usually chose to clean my hardware every time the need to find an excuse to do some real household chores... :)

    The lid off the Speck it harder to take off than the lower base section, but you should never really have to remove the lid - just use a credit card or similar plastic item.

    Anyway the lower section is real easy and I remove mine every few weeks to give it a bit of a clean.

    The thing is - the outer case of my Speck is really scratched and without it would have definitely made an impression on the MBP

    Just get a hard case and clean it every once in a while. It's not hard. Just take it off, blow it off, put it back on. 2 second process and protects your MacBook a lot better than a layer of fancy seran wrap.
