Skin or Cover for MacBook's

I've got a MacBook Pro and from past experience I have seen that the silver, in certain spots on the keyboard that get touched a lot, start to wear down to a darker color. Does anyone have any clear cover or skin that protects the keys from this as well as the areas where your wrists rest?

Thanks!

Re: Skin or Cover for MacBook's

Thanks man, those do look good I think i'll invest in one of those. are you planning on getting something that covers up the part that your wrist sits on? I used to work where everyone used macbooks and that area got all worn down and it looked awful so I'm just lookin for somethin that would prevent that.

Re: Skin or Cover for MacBook's

you should consider the invisible shield

http://www.invisibleshield.com/

I have one on pretty much every product with a display, and I used to have one on my MacBook. It's a great clear protector for stuff. The videos on the site, with the keys and all, are true to life - I tried, lol.

As far as a case goes, I keep mine in a www.booq.com Viper sleeve.

Re: Skin or Cover for MacBook's

I've never really understood the need for products like this. Laptops are pretty much disposable. Use it for a few years, sell and get a new one. It's a tool, it's not like it's a car or something.

My brother says the exact same thing, lol, I used to be critical of people who had skins for their iPods and phones and such but I really have grown to like the idea to protect it. I know the back of my iPod has gone to scratch-hell, it looks awful, I wasn't planning on keeping it for so long but I ended up and now i regret not taking more care of it. I'll probabbly end up using this laptop for longer then a few years anyways so I just want to keep it clean

The only caveat to the invisible shield is that it takes some patience to apply. Follow the directions closely, and be patient and careful. The good news is if you screw it up, they'll send you another one.

Yes and no. It's still a $2000 toy, and if the guy wants to protect his investment, who can fault him. I put them on my iPods, not because I don't plan on getting a new one in a few years, but because I want it to not be all scratched up while I use it!
