    I just ordered a Bodyguardz for my MBA. They give you 30% off if you drop them a post on Facebook.

    I have wrapsol on the way. Got it because it's the hardest to tell it's there. Not sure if I'll use the palm guard though.

    Just be aware that this will raise the MB's operating temperature as it's basically an insulating layer.

    is it just me or do none of these have a piece to cover the screen?
    seems kinda weird considering screen protection is there bread and butter

    that being said i am interested in one and want to make my choice soon so it can get here for when my ultimate config RMBP gets here

    I've always found that for all my laptops, I tend to scratch up the bottom sometimes, not all that often. I just like keeping my tech products in top notch condition, so this time for my mbpr I decided to get the bottom protection from bestskinsever.

    i have had wrapsol on three macbook pros over the years...never any complaints, blends in perfectly with a matte finish, great cs and warranty, and i have never had it raise operating temps. (i use stat menu to keep track of temps ect.) will not go with anything else

    Has good reviews, with the coupon mine came out to $17 (I only got the cover for the bottom). The full is closer to $30.

    i got my wrapsol on friday and have to say, it is great. feels like nothing is there. really really happy with it.

    i did the "protection" package and got the "grip pad" with it. really happy i did, i think it's a great extra accessory.

    Got Wrapsol on the way. Zagg sucks IMO, the quality is really subpar.

    I highly recommend BodyGuardz clear protector for the MacBook. I had mine on for a good year or so until I changed to a Carbon Fiber skin. Both products are excellent, but I feel like the clear protector was much more protective. It had a really good grip and feel, and was seriously durable.

    You can get it for $50, but like ijen0311 said, you can get 30% off if you post on their facebook page. I've only tried a few other clear protectors (ZAGG, ugh), but this is a top-notch product IMO.

    got my wrapsol in and installed. pleased with the fitment but not happy that the screws are covered by the bottom sheet. the old one had all the little screws cut out so you could remove the bottom panel without damaging the skin. not sure if this was a fluke but have contacted wrapsol to see what they say.

    I nearly just sent him the $100 out of being so impressed with his hand-made attention to detail... but then I decided I might as well get one if that's already the case. ;-)

    I'm actually a "go naked" sorta guy myself. People always think I'm crazy because my iPhone doesn't have a case... but out of many years of habit, my phone ALWAYS goes in my front right pant pocket, and my keys go in the left. I've never had a single scratch on any phone ever that way.

    Main reason for a slip case is that let lets me carry a few things at once in one stack without worrying about any of them scratching the mac. Sometimes I'll throw a drive, tablet, wedding album etc. on top of my laptop and pick them all up together.
