    I have a black macbook. The trackpad and the palmrest have begun to get glossy. What do you suggest? A silicone cover or the invisible shield for the whole body and which brand? Any ways of removing the glossiness?

    Do you have the 2.4 ghz model?

    Well, I have a Moshi Palmguard for my black macbook 2.4.. And that nice, allthough I think it looks a bit silly 'cause you can obviously see that its on...

    No, got the 2.16 Ghz model. So, which one would be better? a hard shell case or something like the invisible shield? I was thinking of sticking the invisible shield on the top and bottom and going for a silicone skin for the keyboard and the palm rest. ANy opinions?

    I've got a Speck clear for the exterior and a Moshi for the interior. Works great, looks fine, and I just use a Windex nap from time to time for the keys to get the skin oils clean. No worries. iKlear is great, but it's more a polish than a cleaner, keep that in mind.

    You heard nothing but FUD, most likely. Mine's been on without respite for nearly a year so far, I don't have overheating or "other" issues. The Specks won't have a single issue that any other covering or case has.

    I just picked up the incase hardshell, i must say, build quality compared to spec is really worth the extra $$$. its snuck, ventilated, and the rubberized finish feels sooo nice.

    Does the INCASE HARDSHELL compromise the looks of the Black Macbook? I mean, i dont want my machine to look all cheap and tacky. Plus, do i need it or is it a better choice if I go in for an INCASE NYLON SLEEVE?
