Doesn't fit Macbook Air 13"
on November 6, 2012
I have to agree with user "Tight" and their review. I wish I could give this cover a higher rating because it is very pretty and also very soft, so it's comfortable to use... but I've had it for a month now and it hasn't really "sunk in" to the keys. The cover is raised and somewhat loose. I think it has to do with the depth of the keys. I have an external keyboard from Mac and the cover fits better on that than on my 13" Air. I realized today that i have to type harder with this cover than without, especially pushing the spacebar for some reason, which is also not a good habit to get into... whenever I use a keyboard without a cover, I'll be one of those seriously loud typers! Noooooo!!!!!!
Is it safe to close my screen over the cover? Since it is raised up from the keyboard, I am worried about damage to my screen. So I have to take the cover off every time I close the screen to prevent possible issues. If the screen sort of closes on its own, it doesn't close completely. So I'm hesitant to leave the cover on and then put it in it's tightly-fitting sleeve.
Overall, the keyboard cover muffles the typing sound, so it is quieter to type, which is nice. I also bought the hard cover from iPearl. In the box was a second keyboard cover, of seemingly cheaper quality, but it fits better over the keyboard.
I'm going to use the cover, but I'm not entirely impressed with it, which is why I had to give it a low rating. Had I tried out several covers I probably wouldn't have chosen this. Sorry iPearl!
