First I will say that I got a Spring 2010 base Macbook Pro 15. This is my first Mac and I love it. Honestly I love it a little too much. I have searched numerous threads, but cannot find what I'm looking for. I have a Speck Case on the outsides and so the outer casing should be ok. But there is so much room and room for scratches on the inside that I'm paranoid. Is the inside pretty tough? And how long does this awful stupid feeling last. I do have a right to be this way since I paid over 1800 with taxes and everything. Thanks.
