Im looking for a Keyboard protector for my Macbook Pro 13 inch. Anyone have any recommendations? Im leaning towards the Moshi keyboard cover, what do you guys think?

Also, do these keyboard covers touch the Screen when the Macbook pro is closed?

Yes they do touch. It's also important to note that heat naturally rises out of the keyboard area.

haven't seen any marks or grease marks on my screen from having the keyboard protector on, and I check every day

i am also wondering if i should get a moshi keyboard cover. if it touches the screen at all i wont do it.

i am getting the 15" HR AG screen which is more inlaid into the bezel without the glass cover plate. does this make for enough space between the moshi and the screen so it will *never* touch the screen?

I got my girlfriend the Moshi keyboard guard because I didn't like the iSkin one she bought herself. The Moshi is much much clearer, and is much easier to type on as opposed to the iSkin. The thing is, like most keyboard skins, it does get dirty after a while, but can be washed and reused.

Go with the Moshi, or yeno buy one of ebay! :p

Does the screen make contact with the Moshi when its closed?

I just got the moshi clearguard. It is super thin and doesn't touch the screen at all. It isn't silocone either so it doesn't attract dust. The problem is it doesn't always stay in place. Once in a while I open my MBP and it has escaped (yeah its thin enough to move around while the MBP is closed).

Other than the moving around issue its great! Can barely tell its on there.

I might just get some small pieces of double-sided tape to hold it in place...then problem solved.

Then again if you want to save some money try that $0.99 silicone one suggested by aeboi first. If it sucks no real harm done. The clearguard is ~$20 on Amazon...
