    I want to buy one of this...

    http://www.iskin.com/store/i2shop_protach_exam.tpl?cart=12022737232410288

    to protect my white macbook keyboard which is catching up a lot of dirt from my hands and around!

    But i was confused over the color. Should I buy the Arctic (clear type) or the blue or pink versions? I want a clear visibility of the keys, i thought the Arctic is better!
    Do some1 own one of these? Can some1 suggest which color i should buy?

    Note: At the bottom of that page its given that Eclipse and Ghost (letter imprinted) are not compatible with macbooks that came after nov 07 (the santa rose chip versions). Mine is the new one so i dont have that option!

    The new SR Macbooks have Media keys in the upper right; function keys. The upper left has Expose All Windows and the Dashboard button.

    I wouldn't worry about it unless you really need to see the print on those buttons.

    Hah they are great, my store just starting caring them today, i got one, i love it. It feels a bit strange at first, about 20 minutes later already getting used to it. I got the ghost one or acrtic, it is really good. The cover that i have is clear, so i guess it was arctic. I really do suggest, as its not as much the dirt getting on the keys, but rather just really simply preventing dust to get through and onto the inside, i had really bad experience with that.:apple:

    after a day i have noticed one thing, it still is a tiny bit wiered to type, but the important thing is that, scence heat goes up, the protection pad slightly delays the cooling that happens through the space in the keys.

    I've got mine today, it's quite thick but fits nicely on the MBP keyboard. The thing is a dust magnet though, quite ironic hence it's supposed to protect dust from entering the keyboard. It's an okay product IMO but not worth the money.

    I have the pink iskin i bought from my campus computer store. It was really nice at first...somehow dust, hair, and other crap gets stuck underneath it. I have no idea how, its quite annoying.
