Some people couldn’t care less if their laptop looks like a well-used tool—scratched, scuffed, and generally broken in. On the other hand, some of us want our laptops to continue to look as good as new, no matter how much we use and abuse them.
To do so, you need to take steps to protect your laptop, but a good laptop bag can’t keep your Mac notebook safe all the time. A good solution is an always-on protective film that’s strong enough to beat back scratches from keys, rings, watches, tabletops, and other objects that would normally wreak havoc on your MacBook’s attractive finish with minimal effort.
The problem is that while the best of these films are nearly impervious to surface scratches, they’re also challenging to apply. You might even say intimidating, if you’ve ever seen someone perform the task. In this Macworld Video, I show you what’s involved in installing one of these protective films, NLU Products’ BodyGuardz, on a unibody MacBook.
