    I just ordered a MBA and have read quite a bit about the glare on the screen. Since this is my first Mac (and nicest laptop), I would love to have increased protection. I already purchased a hard shell (Kuzy) and carrying case (be.ez).

    Has anyone tried Moshi's iVisor? It's a high quality screen protector -- there are no bubbles, it reduces glare, and gets rave reviews everywhere I've looked. It costs $37, but I am considering picking one up.

    Has anyone tried this product, and would you recommend it?

    Thanks! :D

    Got my 13" Air about a month ago and have had zero issues with glare. I don't think anything is needed. I would not put anything on this screen. It's gorgeous!

    That sucks. Did you end up taking one of the two off so it would close?

    Also thanks for the input tsboy

    Can you give your experiences with the iVisor? :confused:

    I think it's pretty normal that using both is too much for the extremely thin notebook.

    I'm completely baffled as to why people would pay $37+ on a screen protector for a screen that should never be touched in the first place...

    Plus, my GF's 2009 Unibody Macbook has been going strong with daily use from both of us for almost 4 years now and the keyboard still looks brand new. These things do not need extra protection aside from a quality sleeve/bag to put it in.

    To get an anti-glare screen. Ever worked with a notebook outside? You'll hate that lossy thing.

    I currently have it on. It's fine, but be careful not to get any dust between the film and the actual screen.

    Do you also use a hard shell or keyboard cover?

    This I can completely understand. I couldn't imagine using it outside in sun with the stock screen.

    No - just an invisible shield.

    I got it for my 2012 13" about a week ago. It seems to help. Mine closes fine with the ivisor and the Moshi keyboard cover. I was concerned after reading the guy with the 11" MBA so I sent his post to Moshi. They assured me it would work and offered to accept a return if it didn't as long as I bought directly from them.
    I am pretty happy with it.

    I've ended up taking the keyboard protector off when I am away with the computer and only use it at home. But to be frank I hate dusts and other stuffs litter the keyboard as it is become hard to get them with finger.

    My concern is not about whether me touching it or not. It is the other people touching it and I seriously blew a couple of my friends because they tap the display. AND, I hate the fact that I am such a saliva spitter when someone engage a conversation with me, while I'm using the laptop.

    ----------

    Hm, interesting. I would like to get in touch with this Moshi guy you talked about and share my experience.

    is there a gap between the screen and protector because of the bezel?

    Yes, there is a slight gap because the adhesive is along the bezel and not on the screen itself.
