    Look into an iSkin. You can get a new one on ebay for $19.50 shipped which is new in the package and your choice of color!

    If you do get an iSkin, get some sort of cloth to keep between the iSkin and the screen, because the iskin makes the "keys" even CLOSER to the screen which makes the marks, only not as bad.

    iskin

    Hi, look around at your local store for one since iskin charges shipping and ups the price a good bit.

    You can buy them straight from Apple for $20 + shipping. If you are ordering $50 or more, shipping is free. I perfer to pay a few dollars more if it means avoiding eBay.

    Do you have an iSkin?

    Yeah, forgot to mention, the Apple store carries them. According to Katie, you can ask for an open one and get it for $10 instead of the full $20. ;)

    Just curious if what I said above was correct. Doesn't it make the keys (with the iskin over them) closer to the screen and therefore you would definitely need a screen protector as well? Just asking 'cause I ordered an iBook and bought an iSkin from someone on here!

    I have an iSkin on my PowerBook. It leaves no streaks on the screen. I think there is more room between the screen and keyboard on the PB than the iBook, though.
