    I know that in prior Powerbooks/Macbook Pro's, the keyboard used to touch the screen and put oil prints from the keys all over it. I just got a new Macbook Pro and Im wondering if this is still an issue. I keep the Styrofoam insert in it when I close the lid.

    Should I get a keyboard cover or is this no longer an issue?

    No, not a problem at all. I'm on my second unibody MBP and haven't seen it happen ever.

    It might or might not, but from the lack of people posting about it, I don't think the keyboard touches the screen. But what I do know is that if you get a keyboard cover (and by that I mean the silicon ones) that will in fact touch your screen and leave oil prints on it - does with my Moshi ClearGuard.

    Its not a big problem on the newer unibody models. First because they are stronger, second because the glass doesn't scratch easily like the bare lcds did. Its still nice to prevent key shininess, but not as crucial anymore.

    Brought my system home from work today without the styrofoam in it, and there isn't a mark on the screen.

    Thanks guys. :apple:
