    I just got the base gold and got a clear plastic cover for the top and bottom to protect it. The color is very visible but I won't get any scratches or chipping, all for ten bucks. What are you all doing to protect yours.

    I'd probably just get a clear skin. Protects against little scratches but doesn't add weight.

    I don't have a 12" MB, but a 13" rMBP and I don't do anything to cover it. No skins, no cases, nothing. I just be very careful when transporting it and setting it down.

    I don't have anything to cover. There are some scratches but I am okay with them.

    While I use it it's naked, while transporting I keep it in a leather sleeve from Joli. :)

    Another vote for the Joli sleeve. Very nice sleeve.

    I just use a sleeve I got on Amazon for $12. Works great!

    Naked in all of its natural glory. My iPhones, iPads and any other device were ascetically designed by artistic engineers and were made to look best unadulterated.

    I have a case for my phone, I have a case for my Apple Watch, yet, I do not use any sort of case, or covering for my laptop. Never did, and they seem to hold up extremely well. Of course when I travel, it goes into a carrying case/backup that keeps it separate from everything else.
