    Ive seen the "Protection Pack" by Marware. Who else makes something like that? How is the Marware protector?

    Suggestions/Comments/Tips ?

    I use the plamguard by Moshi, and I've been really happy with it. You can't really tell it's there.

    How well does it "stick" in place? Any issues with it moving?

    I just took a look at the Moshi Palmguard. How does it stick? It looks sorta like a sticker.

    I used the Marware on my PBG4 and its been great. It has been on for over 2 years and I just replaced it 3 months ago with a new one. No residue and the palmrests looked brand new. I'll be buying one for my new toy shortly. Marware has a 1-3 week wait but Amazon has them readily available...at least for the 17" versions.

    So how does it stay in place? Does it just grip the wrist pad or does it actually stick?

    It actually sticks.

    I have the marware on my new MacBook Pro and I love it!

    (went through hell trying to put it on just right though)

    Just want to second the moshi recommendation. The quality is much higher than the marware one, is essentially invisible and doesn't wear out. I've had both and it's really so much nicer.

    Well, here are some quick pics I snapped with my iPhone.

    If you notice, the Marware protector wrist protector is the same color as the rubber piece on the hinge area.

    The Marware protector has worked great for me. I've (carefully) removed and re-stuck it to 3 different machines and it still looks as good as new. The Moshi stuff looks good too but they don't make a version for the 17".
