Bumper for MacBook Pro

Forget about the new iPhone needing a bumper. The MacBook Pro needs a bumper. Resting my wrists on the edge of my 17" MBP feels like they may be sliced open at any moment. I would love to have a comfy bumper that fits over the front edge so that I can type in comfort. I like the one-piece aluminum case for its looks, but comfortable it ain't.

Has anyone seen anything like this, or am I left to make one for myself (poorly) and then two+ years from now enough people will have agitated for one and they'll finally have them?

Most common response: Don't rest your wrists on the edges of your machine. It's not healthy typing posture anyway.

An iLap will solve this problem for you, but it's not something that will clip-on/adhere to your MBP like I think you want. But it's something to check out. I like mine that I have for my 12" PB.

Does anyone else own an ilap as I am curious to know how good these are, build quality and personal preference.

I have had three, one for my first PB, one for my Blackbook and now one for my new MBP 15. Great product!

wouldn't any bumper on the edge of the computer hinder the way the lid closes?!

You'd probably remove it whenever you're not using it.

When playing games I rest my left wrist on the edge of it, but I put down a pretty heavy screen cloth (4"x 6"ish) and that helps a load.
