    An example of one is the RadTech ScreenSavrz

    Keeps your keyboard and trackpad from rubbing on the LCD panel while traveling. I've seen many a notebook LCD panels with permanent marks on them from the keyboard or trackpad rubbing against the LCD panel while traveling.

    I absolutely use a keyboard cover. I am very guilty of using my 11 on the couch while drinking coffee and eating. The cover has saved me from the heartache of getting coffee/crumbs into the keys.

    For me, it's a necessary item.

    I just a protector because I usually use my MBA when I'm eating :D

    Don't want my oily hands leave marks all over the keyboard.

    Ditto. I got the ShaggyMAC cloth in grey. It goes in between the keyboard and screen every time I close it.

    Moshi keyboard cover. Best one in the market IMO and does the job well.

    I use the Radtech keyboard cloth to protect the screen from keyboard marks when the MBA is closed.

    Does the MBA still close wiyh this cloth in between?
    Does it not increase the presuure on the LCD display and thus can even cause fatal damage to the LCD screen in stead of some minor scratches when not using the cloth ?
