it works, which the only good thing I can say about it
on January 15, 2012
I can't really fault this product, but I'm disappointed in it because it doesn't actually stay put. The coverage on the bottom palm rest is nice, but the coverage on the keyboard area fits more like a placemat, There's a slight gap between the cover and the keys which make typing on it not difficult, but you have to try harder to hit the keys properly. Also, the tiny scrap of silicone under the trackpad is flimsy and doesn't stay put. The problem could be solved by putting a small amount of adhesive on it, but that would defeat the purpose.
I did entertain the thought of cutting the top part of it off and just using the bottom part (which is the real reason I need it), but I haven't figured out a proper way to cut the silicone to where it'll still stick by itself.
My suggestion is that if you don't want to spend thirty to forty bucks on a fancy cover, get this silicone skin. It's not bad for the price, but it could be better. Then again, that's why you'll have to pay more for something like this if you want it to work properly.
