What is the best way to protect it?

I HATE getting scratches or any sort of cosmetical damage on my devices, I am getting my first MBP on Friday, and want to know what the best way to keep it like new is?
It won't be leaving the house regularly for a while, but I do have a neoprene case which I think it will fit for travelling anyway.
I have seen many people with cases on their Macs, I don't know what the proper name is for them, but they are like hard shells attached to the back of the lid, are these recommended? I have read about some heat issues with it.
What is the best way to protect the screen? I don't ever touch it, so I don't think that will be a problem, but cleaning dust off etc.?
Lastly, will the trackpad wear away? My laptop's trackpad has slightly faded from it being used a lot, are MBP's prone to this too? I will try to use a mouse as much as possible.
Are there any other things I should know about? I read that the bottom can get scratched easily too? I would only use it on a flat surface, so something like my lap, so depending on how soft the metal is... It can't be that bad can it?
Thanks!

Wouldnt buy that, nope
Hard cases protect the finish of your macbook, but they trap in heat, ....many here have spoken on same.
A major part of a macbook pro, especially a RETINA PRO is dissipating heat from the alloy case, which this case prevents from happening.
Yes, youre stopping all the scratch,.....and likewise keeping the Macbook from dissipating a lot of heat.
When I said INCASE, I meant this:
