    So I'm on the verge of ordering a black MacBook, and I heard that it scratches much easier than the white one. I noticed that has a full body InvisibleShield available for the MacBook. Does anyone own one of these for their MacBook, and if so, how well does it work? I know it works for iPods, but I never considered putting one on a laptop before.

    I've got one on my nano and it's amazing, the stuff is awesome. If you're worried about scratches and scuffs... go for it, but you'll have a glossy exterior on your macbook too....

    I'm quite impressed with InvisibleShield myself. I put it on my daughter's MacBook at the beginning of summer, and it still looks very pristine. I also put it on my own MacBook Pro, but that was just a couple of weeks ago.

    It is a bit of a trick putting it on. I did a perfect job on the MacBook. I wasn't quite so perfect on the MacBook Pro, and there's a few bits of lint underneath.

    EDIT: This was discussed in another thread which might help too.

    EDIT2: Also, you'll see references to MarWare. I don't know it myself, but I've only heard good things about it.

    I've had one on for the past 3 months. It's great. My macbook gets carted around in a backpack most days, and it has yet to get scratched and the shield shows no signs of wear. But be sure to put in on in a dust-free environment especially with the black one I'd imagine, and use every drop of the spray you have, because putting on the top well piece is quite a challenge.

    Can't tell you if it works on a Macbook well, but I can say it works wonderfully for my 1G nano. I've had it for almost a year now and it's pretty much 100% scratchless. So I'd have to go ahead and say it'd work just as well on a Macbook.
