    Im thinking of getting a matte screen protector for my MBA.

    My questions are:

    1. Will it screw up the keyboard (ie. keyboard imprint due to thickness of the screen protector, etc?) Note: I don't use a keyboard protection sheet
    2. Will it affect the brightness significantly? Right now im doing 3-4 bars above zero, which i find just enough.
    3. Is the matte finish worth it?

    I haven't heard a lot of good about those. I don't imagine there would be any adverse effects, they just aren't known to work quite as advertized.

    Hell yeah it works! I love it and it really reduces glare. I also don't have to worry about my keys scratching or getting my screen dirty. However, you have to be very efficient at putting it on otherwise you'll get specs of dust beneath the screen. Peace of mind for only 10 bucks plus the reduction of glare. You can find 2 for 10 bucks and get 2 tries to put it on incase you mess up on the first one.
