    Exclamation Any way to prevent my macbook pro from slicing my wrists lol?
    I have a new 13" MBP. I generally use it either on my lap of the arm of the couch... my wrists like to press on the corners or sides of the machine... anyone else notice how incredibly sharp the edges are

    it makes it so sleek it hurts, literally.

    short of keeping my wrists off of it, any suggestions? any products out that address this???

    something like the rain iLap would give your wrists something cushy to rest against.. keep the machine cooler too.. as well as your lap

    the rain looks nice, but it only takes care of the front area. i have nice wide shoulders and my arms tend to rest on the sides of the machine at an angle

    If you type correctly then your wrists should not be resting on the laptop. You could always try and correct your typing posture. Free solution too.

    You can put "duct tape" on the sides as well!

    It will soften with time as your wrists slowly erode the aluminum... kind of. Not really.
