    I have a macbook pro 15" core i5 version, I'm worried that i might get some scratches on the aluminum body. I don't want to buy a sleeve because my mac is functional all the time and I don't turn it off due to my work needs(freelancer).
    The hard cases available by speck, are they a good option or do they heat up the macbook pro? Need good advice so that i can protect my macbook pro from scratches.

    my first mbp, had it a few days and got a dent in it, i cried.

    I ran to the apple store (well, drove!) and got a speck seethru hardcase, now i'm speck speck speck speck mad!

    I love the cases, for me, they make no difference in the heat and how it's distributed. They will scratch but i would rather have a case be scratched than my mbp being scratched.

    MBP = Speck case
    iPhone = Speck case

    Get one, if you don't like it, return it, simple :) and you can do this through apple cause I did it today :)

    Why do people worry about scratches? I mean aluminum doesn't scratch that much unless you place it on something sharp. I've had my Powerbook for years and not one scratch. That's because when I take it out of my sleeve I lay it on top of it or on a clean surface. Occasionally I will wipe it down. The same goes with my Macbook Pro. No scratches. In fact, when I take it to the Genius Bar, they are surprised because my MBP is 2008 model.

    Just buy a sleeve. I got the Tucano sleeve because it has a protective cover so that the zipper doesn't hit the Mac.
