But as with all applied materials (especially large area ones that have small or thin strips, i.e., between keyboard and screen hinge) there is a tendency to get bubbles under the surface pad or waveyness in the narrow parts that make for an imperfect fit. I'm tempted to cut off the narrow part between the keyboard and the top hinge. I haven't decided yet. I gave this only four stars to reflect that if you are a stickler for perfection you may be bothered by these issues. The supplier has made the application mostly trouble free. There are three separate pull off plastic tabs that help but even then it is not easy.
You don't need to worry about bubbles as the pad is thicker and the adhesive more forgiving than on a screen protector. There are instructions on the strips and you just remove part of the backing for the area around the track pad. I was able to reposition that portion before removing the rest of the backing. The tip from "Z's" 9/2/2011 review entitled, "Great Protection, Great Look, Unsurpassed Feel", was very helpful.
So I was looking forward to a badass black leather pattern but instead I got a kind of dainty flowery twisty floral pattern, which is exactly what I do not want for my MacBook Pro that's wrapped in a red Speck Satin cover.
But I can't bring myself to return it since it is my fault, so I have a gift for someone.
Just a word of warning. The craftsmanship is great, I'm sure. It's just not really what I was expecting. The retail packaging really shows off the pattern, but the Amazon listing really does not.
If you wear a watch at work - without this product, you will scratch your MacBook Pro.
This product is beautiful, it looks like Mac was made to wear it.
TIP: When, not if, you buy one of these - I recommend you use the trackpad (for the bottom piece) and the power button (for the top pieces) to line-up the pad as you are putting it on. After installing around 20 of these - this has proven to be the best method. And dont worry, you can always pull it up and putt it back on. (though I would limit that to only 1-2 times)
Enjoy your SurfacePad!
