    Oh wow thanks! It's almost exactly (would prefer just clear films, which they don't seem to have) what I’m looking for! Wished I had known it earlier.

    I don’t suppose much has changed, but has anyone been using 2017 MacBooks with the second-generation butterfly mechanism keyboard and noticed wear/stains on the keyboard?

    It is just normal wear on the keyboard. Same here. It's not an issue. All products wear out eventually - this is normal.

    My old MacBook Pro with aluminium keys lasted 6 years before the first signs of keyboard wear happened. My 2016 MacBook took about 3 months. In the first scenario I would gladly use the keyboard without any protection, but given the second one I would rather use some.

    Just curious if it has been improved.

    I've not experienced any wear on my 2017 MB yet, but on past laptops, I've had great success with a magic eraser when preparing them for sale. The key (pun intended) is to go slow. After all, a magic eraser is a micro abrasive.
