    Check ifixit.com or ebay.

    iskin.com
    kbcovers.com
    zcover.com

    Covers made for late 2007 Macbook and Macbook Air fit the Alu book.

    No they don't, my wife has a late 2007 Macbook and it doesn't fit on my Alu book at all.

    Have you used one before? How does it affect the feel while your typing?

    All I know is I'm using this: http://www.iskin.com/product_kbrd_air.html
    and it fits.



    I guess I'll jump to answer this. The iSkin one is kinda stiff on the edges so I have to hit dead centre of the key... it does affect my speed and accuracies, but I got used to it after a while.

    Thanks for the reply! I still can't decide if I want one. It is pretty cheap insurance, but if it will annoy me daily....prolly not. lol.

    No worries!
    Haha, I suppose, use it when doing light tasks while eating in front of your computer, but take it off when writing 10,000 words thesis.
