    Hey guys just ordered my first MBP. What's the thinnest case out there? I read pretty good reviews for the Speck case, or whatever it's called.

    Would you guys just recommend using a skin, like invisible shield?

    I am definitely getting the moshi keyboard protector. Thanks.

    I got myself a new MBP too. And I'm debating the same. I believe that the invisible shield is pretty cool against scratches. When it comes to bumping the screen onto a external monitor or a wall, I believe a case would be better.

    I heard many people saying that Speks case is awsome but once you put it it's very hard to remove. And it feels like it is gonna either break or scratch the mbp when trying to remove it.

    I think I'd go with a black rubber case and a keyboard protector if you are gonna walk around with the laptop all the time.

    But if you're extremely careful, the invisible shield should do it.

    Yeah that's one of main things I love about the MBP, the thinness. Would hate to negate it with a case.

    I will be careful with it. It's my first Mac!

    In the exact same situation...

    I'm leaning towards the Speck case, but away from the $50 price tag...

    Yeah I am leaning towards a skin. More worried about scratches and less banging it into something. I believe there are other skins out there other than invisible shield that are less money but good quality.

    I see alot of posts about the Speck case, how come no one is mentioning te Incase hard shell? Is it not a good cover? I had seen on another thread that they loved theirs, and does a great job of protecting the MBP.

    They are both the same price, though I heard the Speck is harder to take off if need be.

    I got the incase, but havent ordered my MBP yet. Is it not thin?
