I found the base of the MBP easy to get scratch as we alway careless when you put the mbp on the table or floor. My niese's mpb got afew light scratches. I have seen alot of people on the web too. Most importantly I got dry hands (not sweaty hands) so i find sometime abit slippery as it heavy and cold to grip or hold. As i am Sign writer (hobby) and i love to do sticker and sign. I bought afew CLEAR vinyl like matterial from over. Over there they use this to cover manything, Phones, Laptop, Front gard of the Motorbike, anything u want. So here is the picture what i have done. So far i am wrap with it I use Hole pucher to make holes for the screws (so in the future i can alway swap or replace my HDD). I use Lighter to make the material soft so i can pull it into shape i want. And i use Hobby knife(XACTOR for my wings) to trim it.
