    I have an early 2011 MBP 13" and I'm tired of getting scratches and dents on the cover. I've been as careful as I can be, however other members of my family who use the computer could care less about appearance....My question is, what case would you guys recommend for this computer? I have seen many out there and I would prefer a clear case, that is as thin as possible. All I want to do is prevent future scratches and damage to the aluminum. Thanks...

    Thanks! I purchased a Speck case (clear) for my MBP on Amazon for about $20 less than they sell for on Speck's web site. So far so good!!

    Yes! I love my Incase on my 13"! I've been using it for around a year and it's still perfect.

    I believe speck is one of the best ones out there. Do a search on utube and check out comparisons between speck and incipio. I just purchased my Speck a few days ago. Good quality. No play whatsoever. Fits snugly.

    I used a hard case (Speck) on my previous MBP. I removed it after about 6 months, it left marks where the tabs attached to the body. Plus two of the tabs chipped off. Just something to think about.

    My view on these tab secure type cases are the same for slider smart phones.

    I thought about what you were mentioning there. That's why I'm kinda still in a dilemma about it.

    Some really like the cases and they do protect it, but some of the damage I've heard and seen them do it may not be worth it.
