    Anyone planning to get a keyboard cover for the new MBP 13" w/touchbar? Have been using them for my past few Mac laptops, and like the bounciness in addition to protection against spills. Wondering whether the springiness these covers provide would mitigate the new keyboard's low 'travel.' Or would even a very close fitting cover, like KB Covers or Moshi, pose a threat to the display in such a tight body?

    ya i am worried about spills...those covers have saved me a few times...i was thinking even a flat silicone sheet that covers everything except the touch bar should work too since i heard the keys are flush with the surface...do these things even exist for the 12" macbook? cuz if so, then im sure they will make em for the new boys

    Good point. At KB Covers site I found this:
    http://kbcovers.com/clear-transparent-keyboard-cover/
    which listed the 12" Retina MB

    But couldn't find it on the long list of available sizes at Moshi.

    These are the only brands I've used in recent years, though several companies sell them. The new MBP with touchbar will obviously take a special design, so it may be a while before one's out. Might also take me a while to pull the trigger on this high-priced MBP...
