The world’s thinnest little laptop is getting a little protection.

NLU Products, the developer of scratch-proof, transparent skins for mobile devices, announced tuesday that BodyGuardz clear film covers are now available for the MacBook Air.

The BodyGuardz clear film offers protection from scratches and outside elements.

We first encountered these types of products in our first issue and we’ve been pretty impressed with the results — as long as they are installed correctly.

“Once again, BodyGuardz provides the best way to protect the great design and functionality of Apple’s MacBook Air,” said Whitney Feller, marketing manager of NLU Products.

BodyGuardz protectors are made from the same material that is used to protect the front of automobiles from stones and other abrasive elements, NLU said in a statement Tuesday. The products are designed to be optically clear but can be a bitch to install if you don’t do it right.

NLU also makes protectors for over 1,000 different brands of computers, phones, PDAs, media players, gaming devices, and cameras. Their best-selling items right now include protection for for Blackberry Curve (8300), Apple iPod Touch, Blackberry Pearl (8120/8230), Apple iPod Nano 3G, and Apple MacBook 13″.

The BodyGuardz MacBook air kit goes for $49.95 and can be ordered online.
