    Looking for 3 items to help protect my laptop: screen, palm rest, keyboard
    I'm looking 3 items to help protect my new laptop!

    Something that...

    - I can place over the screen to protect it from scratches and reduce glare

    - Something to cover the palm rest from skin oil because of my heavy use

    - Something to go over the keyboard to protect the keys but isn't something that is floppy and slides off like many of the silicon covers

    Thanks.

    The Macbook Pros have a glass screen that is very scratch resistant. However, I'll let others chime in for your needs as I haven't had a need for any of them.

    Don't have anything on the screen or the palm rest area, though for the keyboard I'm using the Moshi ClearGuard keyboard cover, $24.95US from Apple.

    Do you feel that the cover is loose on the keys or in anyway inhibits typing speed? I used one before and I did not like the way it felt, but I am not sure if it was specifically the one you show in that link...

    thanks

    I haven't tried any other keyboard covers, but I haven't found any hindrance to typing with it so far, in fact, I sometimes forget it's even there until I see the world "moshi" on the spacebar.

    According to Moshi, it is only 0.1mm thin...

    I got the iSkin Pro Touch FX, it's a little thicker than the Marware one, just need to get used to it. I feel better having a protector over my keyboard. BTW it doesn't slide around, it's covers the keys nicely.

    do not get the cover for the keyboard i got one and it creates a build up of dirt around the keys after a while even if you remove and wash frequently and also leaves an imprint on your screen.
