    Does anyone have a recommendation on where to buy keyboard skins? I just purchased a new eMac and ordered the Apple Pro Keyboard skin to protect it, and discovered, when it arrived today, that the eMac doesn't have the AP Keyboard. It's a newer, different keyboard layout.

    I haven't been able to find an "eMac keyboard skin" yet so if anyone knows where I can find one, please let me know! :) Thanks!

    I thinkthe keyboard layout is the same as the old apple pro keyboards. I recommend iSkin products, i have one for my iBook and one for my iPod. visit them at www.iskin.com I think you'll be very pleased with their keyboard cover.

    I don't really understand why anyone would use one of these, today. Sounds like the days of yore, when PC users feared that a little dust would destroy a machine. (No flame intended)

    actually on my iBook it keeps all the dirt, dog hair and dust out of the keyboard and makes it easier to type one the keyboard itself. It softens the sound made when typing and makes it much easier to clean the are you touch the most.

    Thanks Kwyjibo! I'll check out iskin right now and see if I can find one that will fit the eMac keyboard... I'll report what happens. ;)
