Does the palmrest/trackpad on the MBP get worn or 'shiny'?

    On nearly every laptop I've used in the past, including my old white MacBook, the palmrest, trackpad, and keyboard became 'shiny' after time from wear. Does the unibody MBP get like this also? I was thinking maybe it wouldn't because the palmrests are aluminum and the trackpad is glass. Thanks

    No, but occasionally the paint chips off. This is less an issue on the unibodies as it was on the Classics. You shouldn't worry about it.

    If that's the case, then I guess all I need is a silicon keyboard cover to protect the keyboard. Thanks for the info, but more replies are welcome.

    I have yet to see anyone wear our a unibody.

    Also, I wouldn't use a keyboard cover especially if you use clamshell mode.

    No, they're advertised as anodized. They're powder coated.
