    I had a slide on hard case for my iphone and it scratched the edges. will a hard-case scratch my MBP? Has any one here had one, what did you think? did it scratch up the edges?

    I'll look around MRoogle but I really just wanna know if some one had used it, and for how long, and if it scratched their laptop?

    Ive got a Incase hard case, there is no scratches. also it hasnt let any dust in that would scratch it either. Ive had mine on for about 3 or 4 months, i take my mac everywhere and move it 10 or more times a day, and no problems as of yet

    Incase = Good, No Scratches

    Speck = Scratches but not straight away, takes a few months for dust to build up first

    I personally have never used a plastic hardcase before, but I used to use a Macally BookShell Pro with my old MacBook Pro and it's given me no problems whatsoever. I use an iFrogz Luxe hardcase for my iPhone and it's not given any problems either.

    Speck's hard case does eventually leave scratches because the dust gets in. I've been without it after seeing all the scratches but I'm thinking I want a protective case for when it's not in a sleeve or bag. I think I oughta try Incase's hard case... but I do think that sleeves are the best as the primary case.
