Should i get a screen protector?
I've been running on the same MBP screen for over 4 years and it still looks new. If you take care of any Mac notebook, you don't need a screen protector. If you want to use one, that's fine, but it's not necessary.
Nope, and silly.
Thanks for your reply I would rather not have a screen protector over such a nice display. Is your macbook glossy or anti glare?
Is the display glass? i know it doesn't have a cover glass.
Mine is anti-glare.
Yes, the MBPR display is glass.
No need for a screen protector. It will just spoil the awesome screen.
Don't be so OCD. Unless you are taking your machine into a war zone or loaned to a gorilla it's going to be fine. Clean it with a micro cloth, not a Brillo pad & use glass cleaner w/o ammonia or alcohol.
I must admit that when I heard that the front of the Retina MacBook Pro was the display glass, I was somewhat concerned.
But then I realised that the matte MacBook Pros or the glossy MacBooks I've been using for years, have also been unprotected LCDs, and I've never experienced any problem with them at all, so I doubt it's going to be an issue.
And if you think about it, while the Glossy MacBook Pros have a pane of glass over the LCD, it's not replaceable, so if that was scratched or damaged in some other way, it would be just as problematic.
I ordered a Shaggymac screen protector. That's just a cloth that's sized to cover the entire keyboard and palmrest. You're supposed to put it on top of the keyboard to stop the keys from touching the screen when the lid is closed- it's not a traditional screen protector (something that you stick onto the screen).
The keyboard on my old MacBook Air left key-shaped marks on the screen when the lid was closed and I don't want that to happen again.
I had this happen to 2 of my 15" RMBP displays. Apple replaced both under warranty. Also just ordered the ShaggyMax protector. Don't want to push my luck with Apple.
It's glass. Why use a screen protector? If something happens that is strong enough to damage glass, a screen protector is going to be useless anyway. It's like covering a kevlar vest with a paper bag.
Should I be concerned that my keys are leaving marks on my screen when laptop closed? Is this a future problem?
My laptop also registers clicks on the touchpad when the lid is closed. I do not put anything on the MAC.
LATE 15 rmbp.
