MacBook Pro :: Need Piece Of Fabric To Cover Keys When Lid Closed

May 15, 2010

I'm sure you've all experienced this (if not then you don't have a unibody macbook pro, lol). I've had about 8 unibodies both 15" and 13" and the light grease fro the keys occasionally gets transfered to the screen in the shape of keys, and I've seen many people talk about a little piece of fabric (looks just like the screen cloth) they place over the keyboard to prevent this from happening. Anyone have an eBay or another online link to something like this? I think keyboard covers are silly, so just looking for the fabric solution.

MacBook Air :: Keyboard Cover: Is It Essential Or Useless

Mar 22, 2012

A wonderful Macbook Air has been recenly given to me as a present, but I have an obsession: I have read somewhere that the keyboard is set into the upper case, so that is impossible to replace it without spending half of the money this computer costs.generally i hate to exaggerate with protections, but I just wondering what is the normal time of usury of the keyboard (supposed in a daliy usage..)..Does it wear out prematurely before the other components of the computer, or it will be ruined when my Macbook is a rattletrap?In other words: shall I buy a cheap chinese keboard cover using it from time to time or  a more expensive one (such as Moshi or iSkin) for an every-day usage?

MacBook Pro :: Currently Best Keyboard Cover In Terms Of Fitment / Feedback?

Jun 1, 2010

I've been looking around for a new keyboard cover for my macbook and I was wondering which company offers the best fitment/tactile feedback.

I've heard of...KB Covers
Moshi Clearguard
Rearth Verco

So far, I've purchased one off eBay and a Logiix branded one, but I'm not completely satisfied with either one. I don't like how the molding for each key from the eBay one is slightly larger than the actual keys, and that it leaves an imprint on the LCD when the lid is closed, however, it is quiet and typing doesn't require any extra effort. The Logiix one resembles Moshi's Clearguard, where the fitment for the Fn keys is slightly longer at the top. The molding for this one fits like a glove, but typing feels unnatural and it is noticeably noisier. I think the noise comes from the silicone being pinched between the small gap around each key when they are pressed. Typing seems to require more effort because of this. I would like to know if other brands with an exact keyboard fit molding also suffer from this noise issue. Looking around for reviews, I am now somewhat interested inRearth Verco's product. They explain that their silicone molding's thickness around the edges of each key is much thinner than it is in the centre, therefore it requires less effort to press each key. From photos, it appears that the Moshi's Clearguard also has this design.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And/or Top Case Cover To Eliminate Aluminum Reflection?

Jun 25, 2012

Getting a new MacBookPro with high res anti-glare screen.I type with two fingers, and often look at the keyboard.  

For eye comfort, and to prevent retinal after-images, I'd like all the aluminum dull black. I found tape and fabric to cover up most of the top case and the bezel, but the keyboard is a challenge. KBCovers does not produce a keyboard cover which will be black at the bases of the keys and clear over the keys, which would allow the backlit keyboard to transmit.   So first choice is a keyboard cover which has black everywhere there's aluminum, and has clear for the keys.   Second choice is an all clear keybooard cover and I'll adhere black to the aluminum around the keys (and top case). 

Anyone aware of such keyboard covers ? 

Anyone aware of such top case covers ? 

(ColorWare voids a three year AppleCare, so ColorWare is not an option) 

Never understood Apple's engineering design of making a screen anti-glare and anti-reflective, while making the remainder of the computer glaring and reflective and contrasting.  Ye olde black MacBook is such an eye-pleasing and comfortable design.

MacBook :: Macbook Protect Keyboard Skin

Jun 15, 2010

I just got my old macbook replaced by the new unibody macbook. I had a keyboard skin on my old one to protect the keyboard and it was the full version to cover the palm area as well from dirt and wear. Do you guys think its necessary to get a skin that covers the palm area on the unibody or will a skin that just covers the key suffice? Is the palm area on the unibody easily scratched or worn in color? Any ideas on where to find the best deals on such products?

MacBook Pro :: Glass Keyboard Keys

Dec 23, 2010

What do you think? IMO it would be a nice subtle aesthetic change from the plastic EVERY keyboard has for the keys. They wouldn't be translucent either, black glass like the casing if iPhone 4.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Types Two Keys At Once?

Aug 2, 2010

So a few days ago I spilt tea on my MBP. When I opened it back up everything seemed to be in working condition, however a few of my keys were sticky. So, yesterday I took them off and started cleaning. That's when things went down hill.

Now, my keyboard will type two letters at the same time. For example, when I press "r" it will type "ry". It does this for the whole row. The Dashboard key brightens the screen and brings up the dashboard. 4 types 46. f types fh. v types vn. And space doesn't space.

MacBook :: Keyboard Isn't Working - Some Keys Don't Do Anything At All?

Feb 21, 2012

My cat slept on my MacBook last night and now the keyboard isn't working properly ... Some keys don't do anything at all and some keys do things they shouldn't... Any clues on how to fix this? I called the apple support line and we don't think it was anything to do with the settings in 'universal settings'. I'm not sure what else to do and this is one time I do wish I had a man in the house?! Or at least someone else who has half a clue! I rely haven't had many problems with my MacBook 'till now. I'm operating on Mac os x 10.6.8 Also, 2 cats free to good home. Or anyhome, it doesn't even need to be 'good'!

MacBook :: Keyboard Not Working - Keys Got Stuck

Jan 8, 2011

I am not sure what happened but it seems my two year old child might have spilled something on my macbook. The keyboard stopped working and when I pressed a key the letter "Z" got stuck. I purchased a used "topcase" from ebay, installed it and I am still experiencing the same phenomonon, although other letters can type normally. My gut instinct is that there is something else wrong ""deeper to the keyboard".

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Layout And Function Keys

May 2, 2010

I bought a new MacBook Pro i5 yesterday to replace my MBP LED (2.2Ghz). The function keys on the new MBP kinda suck. I really want the one that does "Show Desktop". If you go to keyboard layout, it says that F11, F12, etc., are assigned, but seems it completely ignores them. What the F? Even if I could change the expose button to show desktop, I'd be very happy. I know you can use the 4 finger swipe, but that doesn't help while trying to drag something from the desktop into mail.
