    My Macbook Pro is naked (at least for now). I bought a blue keyboard protector from CDR-King but I only use it when I'm outside.

    I'm thinking about buying a Speck case though... We'll see. :)

    Don't know. I think I got them at Ace Hardware or True Value. Maybe National Bookstore also sells the stuff.

    I'm using invisible SHIELD. It is like a clad wrap that protects my late 2010 MBP. I had it installed last 29June2011 and up until now still like brand new no scratched yet. I just had replaced the portion on the palm rest because of brown stains but the back and bottom cover is still intact. It is a bit pricey 3K (I have to protect my investment because it is not cheap also) and for replacement you need to shell out 800 pesos . They will replace the whole cover. But I opted not to because it is still okay. The remaining replacement front and rear cover was kept by them and if in case the front/back shield is broken they will replace it.
    For the case I am using Capdase Neoprene sleeve as protector when you put them in your back pack or bag.:)

    I plan to get a Speck SmartShell Satin for my MBP 13". But before I decide to buy, are there any disadvantages of using protective cases? I've read from some customer reviews on the web that some of these products cause their MBP to heat up easily. Not sure if youve had the same experience.

    Basing from my 1 month experience with the Smartshell Satin, the case doesn't make my MBP heat up more. The back cover has holes in the right places to provide ventilation to the laptop. But take note that i only use my MBP for surfing/email/watching movies/skype. So no experience with heavy performance programs.

    Outside the added expense of buying a case, one of the disadvantages i can think of is the bulk and weight it adds to the MBP. Another would be the aesthetics factor of covering up the defining feature of MBPs, which is its aluminum body. Also, it has been said that cases can scratch the MBP when puttting it on or taking it off. Although i haven't experienced this myself and i have removed the case a number of times.

    For me, i like the protection a case gives against scratches and light bumps. The added bulk and weight is negligible.

    Note: Speck says that the Smartshell Satin is 30% lighter and thinner than its SeeThru counterparts. I haven't tested if this is true but nonetheless, it's still a good case.

    How do you clean your Macbooks ? Especially the dust that could accumulate and pass through between the keys ?

    Based on my experience, no overheating issues. Im using speck seethru satin and it saves my MBP from bumps and dents.
