just wanted to see what the consensus is here.
yea I'm bored.
any recommendations on whether the moshi or rearth is better?
I've only used the Moshi and I'm personally not a fan. Often times, the Moshi will pop off if I get to typing extremely fast (80+ wpm) which is annoying. It adds a very spongy feel to the keys when typing which is annoying (to me) as well. That might just be part of the norm when it comes to these protectors though, not sure.
I have the Moshi Clearguard and I love it.
hmm ok I'm still on the fence whether to use one.
Are there any concerns with the 11" screen touching the keyboard and creating imprints at all?
i have no desire to use cheap protection of any kind.
what are you protecting the keyboard for anyway? so that when you finally trash your macbook air it goes into the bin with a new keyboard?
I dont use one and i dont think i ll ever do
A keyboard gets pretty dirty. "Some office keyboards have FIVE times more bugs than a lavatory, tests have revealed."
Also, all the little things that get in between the keys that you barely notice but that add up over time.
And when I sell my computer it helps if I can say that the keyboard is like new.
But wont you end up with that SAME crap on your keyboard cover? This is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.
You've got to be pretty flippin OCD to use a keyboard cover.
What happened to buying a laptop and enjoying it?
Since when did it turn into artwork?
Hello ? Relax Much ?
If thinking that makes you feel good, please do.
You're a smart guy.
so someone else enjoys the new keyboard on your mba?
i recommend you buy a magic mouse and don't use your computer's touchpad either so your future buyer gets a shiny touchpad as well.
perhaps the best thing to do is to store it and not use it. your future buyer will be thankful.
You didn't get the sarcasm, did you? Does this help?
Thanks for the tips! I'll definitely do that!
I have several covers but dont use them. Hated the feel. Definately mutes the tactile feel of the keys.
No, and I believe a large number would vote no.
As mentioned, there is just no point to it.
Supposedly. I've never had it happen with any of my laptops that I've had over the years. I've read that some had this happen when there was too much weight pressing down on the MBA in transit...others say it's BS. I tend to be careful about large amounts of weight bearing down on any laptop and I haven't had any problems. I picked up one of those BookBooks for mine which should offer enough protection whilst inside my bag.
But the difference is you can take your keyboard cover off, clean it and put it back on. Also, having crumbs, dust built up on a keyboard cover doesn't affect the performance of a keyboard...
The only reason to use a keyboard cover is to protect the display. After a year, my late 2011 MBA has scratches on the screen in the shape of the keyboard keys.
I would think that a screen protector would do a better job of preventing scratches on the screen in the shape of the keys. It would seem to me, that if anything, the protector would only add to the height of the keys, increasing the likelihood of them creating an impression on the screen. Plus, they will get dirty and oily from constant contact with your fingers.
