Yes, they seem to have a lot for MacBooks, but none for iBook.

Thanks,

This may be because "back in the day" keyboard skins for circa 2005 and older iBooks (not sure of your iBooks age/model) were not as common as they are for laptops now.

Add to this the fact that once iBooks were no longer available...manufacturers of keyboard skins for iBooks (if they were ever available) stopped making them.

So even back in the 2005-2006 timeframe...getting a keyboard skin for an iBook probably wasn't easy. Now add 7-8 years onto that...with the supply dwindling year after year...and you can see how finding a keyboard skin for an 8+ year-old iBook is going to be difficult.

If it ain't on e-Bay or Amazon (at any price)...you're probably not going to find it. Unless you keep checking day after day...and maybe something will pop up (and buy it before someone ese does).

Keep looking...you never know what you may come across. But if you find something (and if you want it)...make sure you can find it again/or buy it!
