    anyone know any macbook protection film?
    ive seen some online such as appleez, bodyguards, invisible shield, etc.
    but i am not sure if they are good buys since i am worried that it might leave any residue when i take them off.
    i thought of buying a clear case, but there are alot of reviews that say that it scratches the macbook easily.
    which one should i get? since white macbooks get easily scratched due to its plastic design.

    any advice?

    I have a full-body shield from and it's great, just like the invisible shield ones but a lot cheaper, and they won't leave any residue.

    "and it wont leave any residue" is not true. When I got my macbook last summer I put an apple peel on it. After about 2 months the covers on the palm rests started to yellow, so I decided to take them off. I tried to do it slowly, but I still ended up with a ton of residue. I ended up taking lighter fluid to it to get it all off. Just a warning..

    A hair dryer also does the trick on messy adhesive residues - warm up the skin lightly while peeling and it will be a dream to remove.

    I recommend - I think they only do the skins for the top lid. If you use code 25off, you can get 25% off (tricky code, eh?).

    I'm not sure what apple peel is , but the bestskinsever definitely don't leave any residue, I had to redo the top part of mine and there was no residue whatsoever.

    the outside parts came off no problem, it was the part where you wrest your palms.

    i just suggest you think hard about how much of a difference the protector is really going to make. (hint - not much of one)

    yeah i have the protectors for the keyboard, trackpad, and the one for the wrists
    then im only thinking of the outer protectors.
    which i am not really sure if i wanna get one.
    since i have a sleeve already for the macbook.

    I've got a Macbook and don't see the need for any protection. Neither
    did my previous ibook of 4.5 years.
