    What is the best keyboard cover to buy for my MB? I only want it to cover the keyboard... I have a white MB, what is the most popular color for this? Also do you close the cover on your MB with the keyboard still on? Thanks for your help on this matter!

    still curious what this does to ventilation. my understanding is that the air is being pulled in through the keyboard? Aleready pushing 80°C under full load, don't want to fry my MB due to using a cover.

    I personally am not so sure if a keyboard cover for the mb is so smart.
    I think that the mb sucks air in through the keyboard so having a cover might heat up your mb in the long run.

    I use the iSkin ProTouch in Arctic (frosted clear) on my MacBook and unless you look closely it's bearly noticeable, I haven't noticed any overheating but I do keep a check on it just incase.

    I just got a Logiix soft keyboard cover, semi clear. So far its great. Typing is a hair slower, but overall its great,plus it keeps it clean and dust free.

    Do they affect the MBP at all when you close the lid?

    and does it mark the screen?

    2. If your fingers are oily, yes
