    I got a new touch bar MBPro last week. [just showing off a little - my white 2009 MacBook is showing its age] and I have two issues:

    1. It is slippery.
    2. It is cold to the touch.

    Questions: How do I make it less slippery? I don't want to drop nearly two thousand pounds [sterling] worth of new gear. And, apart from leaving it on a radiator or overcharging the battery, how do I keep it warm? Maybe a knitted woollen jacket?

    Notes about the Retina MBP, so far:
    Good pictures.
    The little touch bar piano widget by Graham Parks is fun.
    Fingerprint start flawless so far.

    Yeah, 2000 pounds is a lot to lose! Our oldest son lives in London, so we know how cold and windy it can get there.

    Maybe buy a laptop "sleeve" and keep the machine inside it while it is idle should help. My mid 2013 13" MacBook Air, which I keep in my bedroom, is also "somewhat" cold to the touch, at least initially. Don't know about your machine being slippery.
