Will the clearguard available right now fit on the Oct. 10 MBA 13" laptop keyboards?

Are they releasing a new skin specifically for the new line of macbook airs? What's the deal?

Anyone know?

Thanks!

One thing is for sure: ZAGG will be having a 50% site-wide sale for Cyber Monday (tomorrow), and they do have a full coverage for the new MacBook Airs in 13.3" and 11.6" models.

I can't say for sure about other companies, but I can't afford to wait around much longer with my Air exposed to things that could easily scratch it up.

I have the one for the MacBook Pros, fits perfectly on my new 13" air. love it, I also have the marware one, and I can honestly say this is better.;)

idk if they are releasing one specifically for the 13" shouldn't need to as it fits perfect, only the 11" I believe has the top row of keys that are non standard.

sold out at Moshi online store, but got it from an e-bay seller for cheaper, 20 bucks free shipping, lol.

The moshi which I used with my 13"MBP is now on my 13" MBA. It's not quite a perfect fit. The border around the moshi is about 1-2 mm too long which causes the border part to stick up a little bit and I suspect the moshi isn't resting perfectly on the keyboard. The problem is that the dished part of the case surrounding the keyboard on the MBP 13" and the 15" is larger than on the 13" MBA.

But the keys match up perfectly so it is still very usable, just not perfect. :)

I noticed that too, but it doesn't bother me as much coming from the Marware solution the border are thicker and the overhang is wider.

if they make another specifically for the 13" Air I'm not so sure I would buy another just for that 1-2mm borders but hey if I were buying new then certainly.
