The Worst Possible Way To Protect Your MacBook From Scars [Image]

There are a couple of different ways to protect your MacBook from abuse, but this is a new one to us. A Reddit user decided that he was tired of the dings and scratches on the front of his 2008 MacBook, so he grabbed a can of Plasti-dip and gave it a nice plastic coating to cover everything up.

It’s either the most brilliant way to cover up your MacBook’s scars, or the absolute worst. We’re not sure. Plasti Dip was originally created to help people rubberize the grips of their tools, but people have started putting it on everything from car bumpers to pieces of art.

Once you’re tired of the plastic coating you can just peel it off, but we think a protective case would be a better idea so you don’t get plastic in your USB port.

Here’s what the MacBook looked like after its final Plasti Dip coating:

What do you guys think? Brilliant, or stupid?

    As long as the edges, ports and Apple logo are properly masked, it looks like a killer solution to slightly dinged up MacBook Pros. It offers a killer solution to those who want a black MBP (or other colors if they’re available). The key is doing the coating in a professional manner, the same way professional auto body shops do their painting, with exact masking.
