    Just ordered my MBP 13"

    Looking for a fitted case (as in one that fits to the MBP to protect it)

    Any you'd recommend (don't want to spend more than £40 max)

    And, in regards to Spec, out of the SeeThru and SeeThru Satin which would you go for?

    I really loved my Incase neoprene sleeve (with zips) when I had my MBP in 2010. From what I remember, it was the revised model where the zips couldn't come into contact with the MacBook.

    Check it out.

    EDIT: Oh, you want a shell. Ignore me :)

    Thank you.

    At the moment I'm only looking for a case that fit around the MBP, although I will be looking at sleeve type cases later.

    I've just read that the Spec See Thru Satin can get quiet scratched up :/

    Isn't that the point? That's what the case is supposed to do is take the abuse for your mac. I get it that you want even your case to look pristine, but it should really be about keeping the mac pristine.

    If you insist though... You may want to take a look at the frosted/matte Kuzy cases on Amazon. Other than that the only other option I can think of would be carbon fiber like skins or matte skins (Phantomskinz and Wrapsol both have matte I believe).

    A case is suppose to take the scratches so the laptop itself does not.

    :rolleyes: I didn't think! Course, I get you, I suppose it would be nice to have a resistant case though. Thanks, I will take a look at all your recommendations.

    The spec thru case is good, I have had it for 2 days now and theres few scuffs and scratches on it, but thats the point. My macbook on the other hand is as pristine as the day I bought it, without the case, it wouldn't be!
