    I have never considered this before, but after a few black-key apple laptops, I am getting sick of how dirty they get after a full day of use.
    My Late-2011 Air, despite regular alcohol-cloth cleanings, has permanent signs of use. I will need the rMBP i just ordered to last me a

    I am thinking about getting one of those silicone keyboard covers. anyone have any experience with them?

    Yes. I used to be against using keyboard covers...that being said though, I did purchase one for my Retina Macbook Pro. It can be annoying at times (especially at first) to type with, but I can deal with it because at least I know my keyboard will remain squeaky clean. :D

    I bought one for my rmbp off amazon by eithe rkuz or kuzy can't remember. They are super cheap at like $2. Shipping was very slow however even being usps. I actually love the feel of it and how quiet the keyboard is with it. What I don;t liek is I can;t see the backlight of the keys anymore. Just what little bit comes out around the keys not the letters. Are all the covers this way?

    Yes. I've had a cover on since I got it in Feb. Took it off yesterday. Forgot my keys were black. LOL. I have a clear cover and they look gray beneath it. My keyboard looks brand new!

    Oh, and my cover was about $1 on Amazon with free shipping. Can't beat that.

    I have a Moshi keyboard cover and I love it. Yes, it took a little getting used to as it does feel a bit different when you type, but I adjusted to it quickly. To me it's worth it because I hate cleaning the keyboard between the keys and stuff. It's so much easier to take the cover off, wash it with soap and water, dry it and put it back on. Also useful if you ever have liquids around your keyboard, because it provides at least a little protection from spills.

    I've been using a keyboard cover for nearly two years. After awhile you don't notice how sluggish the keys are.

    $1 on Amazon, along with the $4 HDMI adapter. To me, these are no brainer accessories.
