It fits the Macbook keyboard perfectly, is transparent, easy to clean, and just sits there unobtrusively.
Phil Rinehart
I don't have any problems with it sticking to the screen (I have the regular, not glossy screen) when the cover is closed.
Paul M. Dubuc
It keeps dust, dirt, food crumbs, and everything else out of there as well, and it protects the keys from wear.

I have on of these that I've used on a Titanium PowerBook G4 for a years and I love it. I've also used it on my MacBook Pro keyboard. It's a perfect fit for the PowerBook, and nearly so for my MacBook Pro -- enough that I'm looking to get a second one for that computer -- and the later Aluminum PowerBooks. It's good for more than just keeping drinks out of your keyboard (although it did keep some water out of mine when a stewardess spilled some on a flight one time). It keeps dust, dirt, food crumbs, and everything else out of there as well, and it protects the keys from wear. If you look at an unprotected laptop keyboard that's used a lot, you'll see that the keys get worn and shiny. That doesn't happen with an iSkin in place.It's soft, very flexible, and I've never felt like it interfered with typing. As the other reviewer says, it's not clear, but there's a reason for that and it's never bothered me. The underside is not sticky, it's just very smooth. If the top were as smooth it would be clear, but I think it would also tend to feel sticky, and I'm guessing that's why they didn't design in that way. It's made of silicon rubber, which is why it's so flexible. In fact it feels almost delicate since it's so thin, but it seems to be pretty durable if treated appropriately. It also cleans up easily with a very soft brush and some soapy water. I wash it from time to time to clean off all that dust that it's keeping out of my keyboard. To dry it I just lay it inside a towel and press down all over. Much easier that cleaning a keyboard.Great little product.

This is a great idea, very useful to protect your keyboard. I think that computer companies should always integrate this kind of protection to the keyboard. Keyboard aren't cheap, and on laptops if you spill your coffee, your laptop is pretty much dead. So this comes in as an important piece of protection.

Unfortunately in low light environment, especially when there's still enough light for the backlight of the keyboard to be off, you just can't see the keys anymore. Because of this issue, 1/2 of the time i'm not using the protection. The protection is very sticky on the side that goes against the keyboard, meaning that when you don't use it, it gathers a lot of dust very quickly, beating the purpose of having that "skin" on top of your keyboard.

Another good idea, that really needs more thinking, as to what material should be used so that it's fully transparent.

I was really looking forward to using this product given how pleased I have been with the iSkin covers for both of my iPods. The iSkin cover for the MacBook Pro does not fit well over the keyboard and as another reviewer mentioned it makes the keys hard to read. I plan on returning this keyboard protector.

As a keyboard protector, it works fine.
Unfortunately, the material seems to interact with the LCD display to leave marks.
It has stained my screen with rectangles (one from each protected keycap).
Water does not completely remove the marks on the screen - they appear to be
permanent.

Great product. Definitely does not feel like it's close to $30.00 product quality. It is a very simple and painless install. After the first installation is it apparent how much protection this little silicone thing offers...a lot! The only problem I have with it is that it does touch the screen after putting it on the keyboard. If your Pro touch is doing its job(collecting dust, crumbs, and oil from your fingers) residue from what it collects will get onto the display. My recommendation? Buy it and take it off before you close the lid.

I was a bit dubious when I bought this a few months ago (with my new MacBook Pro)... would it work? Would it be sticky? Would it obstruct my typing? Keep me from seeing the keys properly?

But my paranoia and possibly slightly irrational obsession with my new computer convinced me to buy it anyway.

At first, the skin didn't seem to fit perfectly... I mean, it fit decently, but the return key would pop out once in a while, and that bothered me. It also bothered me that I felt like I was typing on something sticky all the time, and so I would take the skin off and wash it about once a day.

But eventually, I started to get used to it. It does seem to mold to your keyboard by itself eventually -- now it's a perfect fit on mine -- and I no longer feel the sticky sensation when I type, though whether that's because I'm used to it now or because I washed it wayyyy too many times, I can't say.

I took the skin off to see what it felt like typing without it just now, and the keys felt so slippery! I actually really prefer typing with the skin on, now; I feel like I have a really good grip on the keys and can type fast without accidentally having my fingers slip and hit neighboring keys.

Also, it goes without saying that this thing keeps all the dust and hair and gunk that you'd normally collect under your keyboard -out-, which is why I bought it in the first place.

Totally satisfied. Totally recommend it. :)
