The surface pad looks great and does its job of protecting the surface from dirt and hand oils. It is thin enough so that it does not interfere with the laptop screen closing properly.

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.

This is my first aluminum lapbook and I wanted to prevent stains around the track pad. You can apply this pad after you've installed a hard case because the pad edges are about 1/2 inch from the edge of the laptop. It feels a lot better with it on and it looks really sharp with plenty of aluminum remaining exposed.

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.

Originally purchased the "Twelve South Surface Pad (leather) for Macbook", because the wifey like the design on it. Turns out to be super functional. It provides just the right amount of softness and support. Definitely makes it more comfortable and enjoyable to work and play on the laptop. Every macbook should have this!

I guess I misread the description when it said "13 inch pattern." I assumed that mean the cut form fit the 13 inch MacBook Pro but what it really means is the leather is embossed with a girly, flowery pattern in the corners. You really cannot tell from picture at all unless you are looking for it... and I was not.

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.

This is a high quality leather pad that distinguishes your laptop from all others! It warms the harshness of the metal wrist area, and makes using the keypad more comfortable while working on your laptop when on the go. I would recommend this leather cover.

My sentiment is best captured by the fact I bought a new Macbook Pro and promptly ordered another Surface Pad. Yet, I did not catch that there is a "patterned" version that looks like pretty(?) flowers are stamped into the leather. You can see it in the pictures, however I did not catch it until it was delivered. My four star rating does not punish the product for my error, I just docked a start due to the value. No matter how useful, I find it hard to pay $30 for something that cost a couple of bucks to make. If you wear a watch, this is a five-star product.

As the IT manager for a Mac based company - let me start by telling you that I REQUIRE all new employees that are allocated a Mac to get one of these. Set aside the wonderful aesthetics - this is absolutely necessary for the new unibody all-aluminium MacBook Pros for one very specific reason:

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!
