The use of a keyboard cover does not significantly impact temps. They only slightly impede heat dissipation, but since the primary cooling is not via dissipation but via the vents, which are located at the rear near the hinge, the impact of a keyboard cover is minimal.Covers are not recommended for thermal reasons.
maybe, but they're not discouraged for thermal reasons eitherCovers are not recommended for thermal reasons.
i like how in their own picture you can see water by and on the hinge...the keyboard protector isn't going to stop that water if it finds its way into a vent
True, but it's just extra protection. Say you let someone else use your computer and they're drinking some water or something near your computer, would you rather have them spill something on your computer keyboard OR would you rather have a keyboard protector just incase.No thanks. It affects how the keyboard feels plus it can leave imprints on your screen.
I just choose to either not eat/drink in front of my machine, or place my drink BEHIND the computer instead of next to the keyboard.
I love having a keyboard cover on my MBA for many reasons. One being that it protects the keyboard from dust and any other small particles that like to creep in. Also, it does change the way that the keyboard feels but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's a little difficult to get used to at first but then it feels fine. I also like the fact that it quiets the keyboard. Typing on that keyboard is a little noisy, and having the cover on it reduces the noise so it's not too disruptive while I'm in class. I've never had any problems with it overheating my MBA.Hey
Do you use any protection for keyboard
there are plenty cases which users spilled coke, cofee on keyboard
so i am only one who think it can be useful to wear keyboard with a soft silicone cover?
yikes, neither your response nor your stance on this issue seem particularly metered to the level of seriousness it seems to require.Gee, if I let anyone else use my computer, it would be on the condition that they not eat or drink near the device. After all, that's the way I use my computer. They're called house rules.
Or, they can use it the way they want and they are liable for all damages incurred during their usage period.
You use someone else's stuff for a short while and you leave it in the same or better condition that which you found it. That's common courtesy. You know, what civilized, respectful people would do.
If these people aren't willing to respect that, well, maybe you need to reassess how you pick friends. If they are unfazed by trashing your personal property and not taking ownership of their mistakes, well, how do you think they treat the rest of the world that they don't even know?
Keyboard protectors feel weird and look like white trash anyhow.
Quite frankly:True, but it's just extra protection. Say you let someone else use your computer and they're drinking some water or something near your computer, would you rather have them spill something on your computer keyboard OR would you rather have a keyboard protector just incase.
I mean accidents do happen. I know who has habits of spilling things and who doesn't, so if they have a habit of doing this, they get my small netbook.Quite frankly:
a) I never lend my computer to anyone who has so bad habits.
b) If someone would spill anything on my machine, they'd pay for the repairs.
I gave up and just bought the most ridiculously overpriced keyboarddunno, random generic cover picture
but guess what, Moshi makes really great keyboard cover according reviews if you aware of quality
by the way, what guys do you think about trackpad cover?
should i use protection over trackpad in order to prevent scratch and wear?
i am thinking about using whole kind of protection in every area of laptop
- keyboard cover: thanks guys for yours advice
as long as i drink coffee every morning while i am checking mails, i need to cover safely keyboard. of course i wont put it forever. just few moments when i grab some drinks near macbook.
- trackpad cover: i am aware of wearing and scratching. moreover i have clammy hands and get dirty too quickly
- hardshell (Speck Tru / Moshi iglaze) or skin (Spigen ultra coat / InvisibleShield): protective skin just provides from scratch and wear while hardshell does protect against drop
i heard protective skin might cause some little overheating.
is that true?
