Hey guys, picked up a 2018 15" Touchbar MBP and have a few questions.

1 - Anyone know of a good THIN Keyboard cover for the new 15" touch bar Macbook Pros? I have used this in the past but it gets faded/dirty very fast. Any other recommendations? - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MRKLH27/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A895CA67P9P1A&psc=1

2 - Can someone recommend me some good USB-C to USB adapters that I can use which won't cause WIFI interference?

I have these Rankie ones but they disconnect Wifi here and there - https://www.amazon.com/Rankie-2-Pac...&qid=1538149935&sr=1-6&keywords=USB+C+Adapter

3 - Any clear skin wraps for macbook pros available? Preferably ones that are dry install? I have tried Best Skins Ever in the past, and while they are great, I want to avoid a wet install.

Thank you!

And for wraps, check out dBrand. High quality wraps, dry install, they have clear and other cool colors/ designs. I got a few for my iphone, still havent pulled the trigger for my mbp yet

I have been using the 13-inch Mac book pro(2017) from the time it got released. It was all fine, just some heating issue. Besides that, I handled it lethargically that resulted giving the Mac a few scratches (making it look awful). I'd specially mention here about the SKIN (not clear but a textured skin) which I bought from GadgetShieldz brand which I applied on top, bottom and trackpad of Macbook. I thought this stylish 3M skin would last around 4 or 5 months but it has been on my Mac for even longer. The camo texture I chose looks stunning. The brand provided these wraps at reasonable price.

I would recommend GadgetShieldz brand if someone looking for protective skins for MacBook.

I have several USBC to USB adaptors--a few are Apple, but I think the others aren't. I've never noticed a problem with wifi before.

This is an adaptor. It's very handy, and it works--but if you have a cover on the bottom of your MBP, you may have to remove it (which is annoying.) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076JCR216/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Still, for what it is and the price, it's not bad.

The Anker cord I bought last month is no longer available, but I've read elsewhere on MCs that if you aren't going with Apple, Anker is a good brand. I've had no problems with their products so far, and they are fairly inexpensive and on Amazon.

BTW, congrats on your new computer!
