    I know they say not to use a keyboard cover with the retina Macbook because it can damage the screen on the laptop. However, I have a screen protector on my Macbook. I know it's overkill but I have plenty of clients who like to touch the screen like it were an iPad and it makes me cringe so I just threw one on so I don't care anymore. But I'm wondering if now that I have a screen protector, it wouldn't damage the display to use a keyboard guard since it won't leave any prints directly on the screen. Any thoughts?

    Ummm I use the Moshi keyboard cover with my macbook pro. It works great. If you are worried about oil from your hands transferring over to the screen. Just put a piece of paper between the keys and the screen and problem solved. I have a scratch free thin fabric that I cut to fit over the keys and that is what I do.

    Is the clear guard easy to type with? I'm a writer so I type a lot and want to make sure it still feels comfortable.

    The main reason Apple doesn't recommend it is because the space between the top lid and keyboard is very thin. The keyboard protector can potentially affect the hinge.

    Super unlikely you will do that. I am sure that is an urban legend that someone once used at the genius bar.

    I type all the time on it for work. It has a nice rubbery bounce and does not feel like you are pressing hard plastic keys.
