Received my new Moshi keyboard cover this morning, and I have to say, Im impressed, and temperature-wise, I have not noticed any increases as of yet.

Its fits almost 100% of the keyboard, with just the function keys being a little ill-fitting, but once fitted, it does not come off, or away from its fitting as easily as I imagined.

Here's a few photos of it fitted. Its washable too, which is a bonus.

I like it! Was it expensive? Can you notice any difference when you are typing? Ive been toying with the idea of getting one myself. In other words, is it worth getting?

It cost me £20GBP delivered from a seller on eBay. Its worth investing in for sure, and yes, you know its there whilst typing, but for me, in a positive way, the keys are no longer slippy.

Very nice!!!

Covers for the silver-key MBP's arent as nice, since the keys are so close together. But i wonder if they make one for the new wireless keyboards??

EDIT: Found these; iSkin ProTouch for Apple Aluminum Keyboard

I kinda think the keyboard skins might be a different class though. But i'll take your advice on there iPhone skins. I just got an Otterbox defender, its bulky but keeps the phone very well protected.

That looks great! I wish they'd make one just for the home row keys and the space bar. lol On second thought, couldn't you just cut it? I mean, I really don't use the function keys all too often. I just hate that shiny look you get on the home row keys from all the oil from your fingers.

That is interesting to hear. The slippery keys are the biggest annoyance of the new MBP keyboards. I might try this product one day.

After half an hour cleaning my Mackbook again today, it'd be nice if I could find one for this model (late 07 santa rosa) :/

I put the Moshi on my wishlist. I have cat with long fur and oh well, it gets on and around the keys. Plus dust. My only concern is I work with my MBP tilted and worried it might slip off the keys since there is no adhesive.

I also have my MBP on a tilt using the Xtreme stand, and its fine, the keys actually hold it in place.

I think it's pretty classy how the Moshi logo on the spacebar looks just like the silkscreening on the rest of the keys!
