    Hello! I've just recently converted from being a Windows user to a Mac user! One of my concerns when I was researching laptops was a spill resistant keyboard. I originally went with Lenovo but their trackpad was just awful. Sooooo I decided I would go with a Mac.

    I drink alot of coffee so I'm terrified of one day spilling some on my new rMBP...and I know that AppleCare doesn't cover spills. I'm looking at several different keyboard protectors but I don't know which one to get. I have an early 2013 15" rMBP...should I assume that any of the keyboard protectors for any 15" rMBP should fit properly? Does anyone have any recommendations for which brand or type I should get?

    ANy help is greatly appreciated!!! Thanks for reading!! :)

    You're welcome. :D

    While you're at the store, check out the Mochi Keypad - I don't use it, but it's had very positive reviews on Amazon.

    This is for the retina display models.

    Welcome to the world of Mac. I also converted a few years ago. Didn't take me long to come under the spell and acquire all kinds of other products made by Apple. To your point though, a sill-resistant keyboard would be nice. I simply keep my beverages a safe distance away from my MBP.

    Why not just use a travel mug. The new ones have caps on them so they don't spill. About 10 bucks at Walmart. Piece of mind. As for keyboard covers. I hate them so I couldn't suggest any.

    Yea, I won't use a keyboard cover. A case already hides the beautiful device - why spoil it with a laptop condom.

    Reminds me of an auto repair shop.

    LOL I worked in an auto repair shop for over 20 years. That's exactly why I came to hate keyboard covers.

    While I don't have a rMBP, I have a regular macbook and I love to drink things near my MB... A couple years ago I bought a cheap MB keyboard protector from Amazon for about $5. Its still holding up and works pretty good.
