I dont think buying a screen protector at the start will be what you need. Usually laptops will come with a screen protector, im betting the chromebook will have one too. Maybe with a Chomebook unboxing video we will see it.Yeah, I have already looked at a lot of cases and I know what I want to get. I was more concerned with finding the right sized screen protector. I use them on my phone and they are a life saver.
