    Worth the money? I already have a wrapsol coming in the mail and was curious if the palmrest and keyboard cover were worth it. Keyboard I can see being somewhat worth it since wrapsol doesn't cover the keyboard but the palmrest is covered and the only additional thing the moshi palmrest kit would provide is the trackpad cover.

    I'm very happy with my Moshi products. I have the keyboard cover, palmrest and trackpad covers. Perfect fit, color matched, and provides me with the piece of mind that my alien acidic sweat doesn't leave permanent discoloration or shiney areas. :)

    My 2 year old work laptop and older logitech keyboards definitely show which keys I prefer and where my thumbs press on the spacebar.

    FYI: I noticed no loss of trackpad sensitivity when using the cover. That was my initial concern prior to using the cover.

    If you must have one I would choose the Moshi palmguard over the keyboard cover. I purchased both when I first got my MBP. The palmguardis still there but I threw away the keyboard cover within a few weeks. Why? While it got the job done, it did not look good after washing and reusing. It became a cloudy and opaque. Anyway, I HIGHLY recommend the palm guard. It goes on smooth, with no bubbles and almost blends in perfectly with the aluminum look. Here's an installation method if you do decide to go with that. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-VGSEcHHyo

    The moshi definitely looks nice but I'm not sure if buying the palmrest is worth the money since the wrapsol already covers it.

    Edit: I guess the wrapsol comes with a trackpad piece. Anyone try it?

    I have the Moshi keyboard cover.

    Between the Moshi keyboard cover and a silicon based one, I like the Moshi one more. It is thinner and does not have a tacky feel to it. Also because the silicon is tacky, it gets dirty rather fast... even after washing it and letting it dry, it gets 'dirty' (attracts dust) again within a day.

    I have the wrapsol on my MBP and i like it, although from the video, it looked like the moshi is alot easier to install than the wrapsol. I didnt install the track pad cover cause I like the feel of it now, and I can deal with having to clean that every once in a while

    My keyboard cover also became somewhat cloudy. I am therefore unsure as to what I will do for protection of my new MBP.

    I have the keyguard and the palmrest. They both do what they're suppose to do and it's been around a year now. The keyguard gets cloudy but that can be solved through washing it with dishwasher fluid and toothpaste. (works for me anyway)

    I have the palmrest+trackpad protector and the keyboard cover.

    I really like the palm rest. It feels just like aluminum, and most of the time, people don't realize that it's there. Because it's not a plastic film, It doesn't feel sticky for me either. The same goes with the track pad. I'm also considering the wrapsol protector, and I'm not sure whether it will have the sticky feeling that most macbook skins like the Bodyguardz and Invisibleshield have.

    The keyboard protector is also very nice. However, the annoying caveat is that after closing the computer and putting it away for travel, and then opening it again, you can see some keyboard key imprints on the monitor screen.

    I have also used the Moshi iVisor AG, but I found that the antiglare screen will sag a bit, creating a small pocket of space when the monitor is tilted forward.

    I just ordered all three. Trackpad, palm and keyboard. $50 for all three on amazon... not cheap but I'm a clean freak and wan't to preserve it's new look for as long as possible so worth it to me.

    I have been using the Moshi palmguard with trackpad protector combination for many years now. Works great and never had any issues; it's the only thing I order for my new Mac [notebooks] as far as films and protectors go.
