Silicone Keyboard Cover

    I am looking for a keyboard cover to protect the keys from dust and dirts. It should be very thin and comfortable. Anyone has purchased one ?

    I'm still looking for one that's not being shipped from Hong Kong and won't have an extortioner's price tag either.

    I got a moshi on from amazon. It is really thin....

    How much for that ?. Moshi is not famous for convenient prices. :D

    A friend has the one from moshi. I hate it, but I type a lot and the keyboard is a really good one. The moshi kills the excellent tactile feedback & slows key response time.

    If you are careful, why not just use it & enjoy it?

    Well the iSkin is better overall due to the way it fits and it has a nice rubberized surface. The Moshi is a clear (see-thru) cover that ends up getting "cloudy" after skin oil gets on it and it's impossible to get it back to normal.
    It's understandable that you are concerned about price but not every keyboard cover is created to fit your computer very well and you can be sorry for getting a cheap keyboard cover that either won't fit well or isn't comfortable to type on.

    I got mine for $15 a few days back.

    I hated mine at first, but now I like the feel. You need to give it some time.

    Moshi fits very well and can be cleaned to get rid of cloudiness

    Many of these covers are made for the US keyboard with the long return. So, the MOSHI is not suitable for my needs.
    However, US' friends look for iSkin.com, they have great products ,but right now are not compatible with the Macbook AIR.

    I found the Clearguard by Moshii with the EU shape, and it fits perfect.
