    I had a quick question, hopefully someone has the answer.

    I just picked up a new 13" MBP to replace my 15" and wanted to buy a Zagg Invisible shield with the 50% off code. The problem that I ran into is their website only has the 2009 MBP listed. Does anyone know if the new and the old models have an identical body and if this would work on the new one?

    Thanks much

    if you didn't have the 50% off, i would have recommended bodyguardz over zaggs. ive read a ton of reviews etc, bodygaurdz is the leading champ when it comes to the mbp covering.

    The Zagg IS for the MBP is great. I put one on my MacBook Pro 13" just last week. Just gives that extra layer of protection to ensure your baby wont get scratched!

    I have tried all 3 (zagg, bestskinever, bodyguardz) between my various apple products and zagg always has the best fit and it made of the thickest plastic. If it wasn't for the 50% I probably would go with one of the others, but at $27 zagg is probably the best

    I used to be a ZAGG Invisible Shield fanatic. I used to use them in all of my Apple product. But since I knew Wrapsol, I ditched Zagg over this.

    The reason that I use Wrapsol instead of Zagg is because it has a matte finish while the Zagg has the cheap plastic glossy finish. The Wrapsol also has better grip for your hands. Try it. It's worth it.

    Yes, they are 100% identical. I bought a 2009 case for my 2010 model and they are 100% the same.

    Doubt your grandma travels to work daily with the sofa. Although if I ever run into the problem of having to bring a couch to work everyday I'll have to email zagg for a custom skin. :cool:

    +1, I love the wrapsol skin, you can hardly tell its there, and you get the same protection. IMO the ZAGG IS looks chincy. If I wanted a glossy computer, I woulda bought a PC or a MB
