Which is the best or rated with the highest regard?

Deciding to get the Moshi ClearGuard. Would like to get the Rearth Verco but they don't do it for the 13'' MBA :-(

What anyone recommend any other protectors?

Regards

The Moshi is pretty good if you don't mind spending the money for it.

^ Agreed. Moshi is the best, but pretty pricey ...

30 GBP for the plastic keyboard protector? Doesn't that seem a little excessive? Its only around 15 USD here...

+1 to that. I was seriously disappointed to find that they didn't support the new 13. I'm still hoping they finally do make new ones.

I personally don't see the point to them. My keys won't get damaged when my laptop is shut, and I fail to see how I could damage them when its open. What are people doing with their keyboards?!

All keyboards after time will show wear due to friction. They will start to become shiny and glossy. Does it effect performance of the keyboard or the laptop in general? No. For me, I use the keyboard protector for resale purposes. When I sell my machines after 2-3 years, the brand new looking keyboard helps w/ resale value and desirability.

I guess you guys are right, they will suffer from cosmetic wear and tear (worse, if you are careless with your drinks :rolleyes:).

I guess its just personal preference. I don't think I would like to type on my laptop if the keys were covered in a shiny plastic surface, but thats just me.

Keyboard is one of the dirtiest places there are... plus all the **** that slips under it.

I tend to not use a keyboard protector because I think it'll overheat easily. Just my 2 cents.

Don't spread this myth, it is not accurate.

Heat does not vent through the keyboard. It comes from the hinge that attaches the monitor.

I understand that heat is blown out from the ventilation sills behind under/near the hinges. I also understand that the cool air will be sucked in from the openings of the keyboard. Am I wrong?

nope, i already disassembly the unit before and ,the only chance is through usb port,sd card slot and of course between hinge and monitor. it suck cool air from every opening port except keyboard area.

If that's the case, it's a bit disappointing that the keyboard isn't spill-resistant the way some keyboards from other manufacturers are.
