Looking to see everyones opinions on cases and or wraps/skins.
I don't currently use either, just a sleeve for transporting (Incase Slim Sleeve). I don't care for cases because of the bulk they add, and the possible damage from debris getting stuck between the computer and case. But if a good skin comes along, I would certainly be interested.
I've got the black carbon fiber skin from Slickwraps on my 2016 Space Grey 15" MBP. I especially like the grippy, yet slick feeling on the wrist rest and trackpad area. Pics can be found on the stickied case thread (post #3879 )
I have had a long line of Apple laptops going back to 2009. I had a white MB, 2011 MBA 11" & 13", 2011 15" MBP, and now 2016 13" MBP.
My personal opinion a sleeve is added protection when traveling in a bag. A cheap insurance.
I used many hard cases but never really satisfied. I usually remove the top portion after a short period because of the added weight on the top and it takes away from the beauty of the laptop. but I do like the added protection on the bottom covering the rubber feet. I wish they only sold bottom portions.
I used a iCarbon skin on a MBA and it looked nice but not much protection. Again I like the feet covered so when I am out in the field putting the laptop on a unclean surface I feel better it is contacting the plastic hard case instead of the actual laptop
As I type this now I have a few sleeves from the past I use when putting it in a bag. I bought a iBlason
hard cover but I just took off the top and am only using the bottom. I recently pitched a few speck cases I had on previous laptops and I was only using the bottom of those as well.
So my personal belief is everyone should have a sleeve, it can be cheap investment. Hard Covers take away the simplicity but bottom protection is nice. Skins are just Artistic expression.
I want to skin the new 15" I bought, but I'm looking to find a skin that's really hard to notice. Most of the ones I see really seem to have some kind of design, which isn't in and of itself bad looking, but I just want something that fights tightly to protect from dust and scratches without altering the look of the device itself much.
I use BSE on my Space Gray MacBook Pro
Never did, and I don't see a desire to do it now.
I dont have a pro i use regularly.
but my macbook has a clip on case and keyboard silicone cover.
I have a clear case, but black shows up better for illustration.
DBrand Marble Skin
no. neither my iPhone.
I refuse to buy a 'luxury' design of a product and then stick a $10 piece of plastic on it. So no, I do not skin it. I don't have a case on my iPhone or iPad either for the same reason.
You can get different materials beside cheap plastic.
No case, no skin. When I take my MBA out, it goes in my purse.
Best Skins Ever
Matte - nearly invisible
And I use an Acme Made sleeve
I've had a red Speck case on my early 2011 MBP since the day I bought it. Coincidentally, I noticed there weren't too many (any?) cases for the 15" late 2016s... that may or may not have influenced my decision to buy one.
Muppet grade fur?
I use a lightweight semi-clear case. It has a rubbery feel and makes the unit less slippery. It also has gotten several gouges, so I am glad the case took the beating, instead of the aluminum.
I boughr sleeve and a plastic economic case for my 15".
I think will return the sleev because is the best for protect macbook touch but too big and heavy.
Plastic cover is good and same size (it is as iphone cover)
Using matte BSE skin on my space grey 15' MBP. Super happy and hardly notice it!
Got a Dbrand skin for my SG 15"... Though I'd try that. Looks amazing and protects the bottom from scratches .
Interesting poll. I never would've guessed the case/skin was so high. I personally don't use either, nor on my iphone. I guess I never noticed them in the wild.
No, it's too pretty to cover with a skin or case. Mine is primarily used at home, but if taking it out I would carry it in a protective sleeve or briefcase.
Mine does get protected by a layer of dust and grease, and if I need to put it in a bag to transport it where it might come into contact with something that could scratch it I put it in a sleeve.
It puts the lotion on its iCarbons, or else it gets the hosing again.
