Six years ago, I bought a MacBook Pro 2010. I had seen the palmrests of my friends' laptops being worn down by the sandpapery grinding and acid oils from the constant rubbing of your palms. It looks like this gross picture: So I thought I'd spend a few more bucks on my $3000 laptop and get a "Moshi PalmGuard" for it, to prevent that from happening. It's a protective film which covers both the palmrest area and the trackpad. Six years later, I have the following experiences to report about it: The PalmGuard feels incredible to rest your palms on. It has a slight texture instead of the smooth metal feeling of a nude MacBook. Putting pants on my MacBook has meant that the actual metal is still perfectly protected underneath. The laptop still looks fresh. And the PalmGuard itself? Six years later, it still looks like new! There are no shiny, worn-down spots at all. They must make it out of some freaking space material, because it doesn't look worn at all. The only thing I did was clean it with a Mr Clean Magic Eraser with some water about once per year to give it a microfiber-clean. The only downside I could find was that the glue has finally lost some of its stickiness, and that a corner of the PalmGuard was finally rising up a bit (after all these years). That happened very recently, which is a damn good track record for 6 years of perfect protection. So why am I making this thread? Because I recently contacted Moshi, asking where I could buy a replacement PalmGuard or some suitable glue (since the PalmGuard itself was still in perfect condition). Instead, they sent me a brand new replacement PalmGuard for free, shipped from Taiwan, six years after my purchase! And Claire at Moshi's support was wonderfully kind, patient and helpful the whole time! That's incredible and shows that they really care about their customers. So not only is their product great, but the customer service is 5/5. I'll be in the market for a new MacBook Pro in a year or two, and will 100% guaranteed be buying a new Moshi PalmGuard for that too. Because they pay for themselves immediately in that your laptop remains in pristine condition, which raises your laptop's second hand value by far more than what the PalmGuard costs. And they feel great to rest your palms on. Much better than a plain metal case. Oh and when it comes to protecting your investment and pricy laptop, I'd also recommend the kbCovers.com ClearSkin, which is a super-thin and super-transparent keyboard cover that feels great to type on (I'm using it right now and have been using them for years). It protects your keyboard so that you avoid "shiny chrome dome" syndrome (a serious medical condition which affects bald men and keyboards alike)! Because if there are two things that make 2nd hand laptops lose their value, it's disgustingly worn-down keys and miscolored palmrests. It looks gross and greatly reduces their value. That's one of the reasons why I decided to protect the palmrest and the keyboard. Some may say "well, forget about the 2nd hand value, and just enjoy your laptop", to which I say: Yes. Exactly! The laptop feels a lot nicer with a Moshi PalmGuard and a kbCovers ClearSkin. The palmrest feels much nicer, and the keys have a more pleasant feeling to type on. And if you spill some liquid, the ClearSkin prevents it from seeping into the inner electronics of the laptop. It's a win-win-win: Better feeling while using the laptop, better 2nd hand value, and better protection against the environment. Anyway, do whatever you want with this information. I just wanted to share a great and uplifting holiday experience I had with Moshi! It's rare that you see such great customer service!
