    I'm looking for some accessories for the Retina Macbook pro to keep it in new condition. Any suggestions?

    A good sleeve, and "being careful with it" are what I'd recommend. Try hardgraft.com for classy-but-pricey bags/sleeves, or Waterfield Designs for more affordable options.

    Snagged myself a new bag from Incase, saddly it will be here about a week before my computer lol. Im waiting for some companies to design some new carbon fiber or designer decal for the RMBP because it seems like the footprint is different than the standard MBPs

    I'm figuring my waterfield racer-x will be fine. I got it back when I had a 15" MBP (non unibody) and it should work even though the dimensions have changed a bit

    As for myself, I plan to get the 15" laptop folio from Hard Graft. Very difficult to not just buy ten things on their store (want a billfold, iPad sleeve, and maybe a bag from them), though it helps that they're all pretty expensive.

    I like the Rickshaw bags 15" MBP cases, you can customize them and the interior is nice and soft. I have a waterproof one (x-pac). (made in the US, and animal-friendly too)

    The kid in me can't help but laugh at this thread. But seriously, I've considered getting a hard case but I wanna see what comes out first. But usually I don't get anything except for my bag(which admittedly has a sleeve in it).

    Im planning on using a sleeve for now. Looked at Speck's twitter feed and they aren't expecting cases until Mid-late August..:(

    Just ordered the cream/read Terra Campus Pack from Incase. I like the design and look, and I like how it has a separate pocket for my iPad as well. The unfortunate thing is that I'll likely receive it long before my rMBP arrives. :(

    I just ordered a new waterfield suede sleeve for it today, i don't like bulky cases, just need something to protect from scratches while it's in my bag.

    Crumpler makes some very nice sleeves too, was a toss up between the two for me.

    I have a Wrapsol skin on order which supposedly was shipping today. I've had one on my Air for about six months and I couldn't be happier.

    Agree completely. I don't like cases that attach to the computer itself. It compromises the look of a very beautifully designed computer.

    my 2006 model 17" MBP has some serious degradation from where I place my hands when I work on it. I wonder if I should get some sort of protector to prevent the same thing from happening to the new mbp? they did remove the glass in front of the screen after all, maybe adding something like that to the surface could damage my screen while it's closed?
