    I think you'll be fine without a screen protecter, as long as you use the laptop normally. When it come to protecting the OUTSIDE of the laptop, a plastic covering will do just fine, yet will get scratched and/or get dust and dirt caught in it.

    I suppose you could always go for a cover that you apply through adhesive?

    Then there is of course always this solution, if a bit simple:

    I second just covering the bottom of the laptop and back of the screen with a kind of clip-on case. This is where most damage occurs when you take it around with you. Don't bother with screen protectors or keyboard covers. Just clean off the computer with a slightly damp cloth every once and awhile and it'll be fine for it's entire lifespan.
