Protecting the Metal MacBook: InvisibleShield, Part 1 1

I had hoped to be able to share a complete end-to-end discussion of ZAGG’s version of InvisibleShield for the 13” metal MacBook ($55) with you today, but the installation is still ongoing.

Even having gone through the process with numerous iPod and iPhone variants of the same product, trying to get all the pieces of this clear, scratch-resistant film onto the computer is no easy feat. The major challenges are alignment and keeping the pieces of film clean given their size and tendency to bend during application. I’ve actually gone back a couple of times per piece trying to get alignment right after an initial misstep.

Why go through this trouble? To keep the MacBook in nearly perfect condition without the need for a thick case, of course. For now, I’ll leave you with a collection of photographs showing off the initial part of the process—most can be seen by clicking on the headline of this article—and additional details will be forthcoming soon.

  1. $55 for 25 cents worth of plastic. It’s amazing what we go through to keep our gadgets looking as new as possible (I’m personally guilty of spending $$$ on screen protectors for a wide range of gadgets).

  2. OMG come on, this is the most useless and tasteless product I have ever seen. A 55 dollar piece of plastic to ruin the looks of your macbook?! That’s like putting plastic over your couch. Come on people get a life.
