So I've been flipping through my copy of Macworld, and noticed their feature on keyboard, screen, and palm pad protection. I wasn't thinking of getting either of these before, but now I can't help but wonder if I should.

So I was wondering, does anyone here have a keyboard cover, palm protector, or screen cover that they are using happily? Are these things really necessary? I have a white macbook so I've heard horror stories =)

I think these are both pretty cool. I have the same thing except it just covers my keyboard I wish I had seen that first

Yeah that top one looks cool, but I was kinda looking for one that you leave on. I think that is more of a mat. Definatly neat though. I wish Apple made something.

I also have this if your looking for something more permanent it works really well and kind of cushions the palm area. Its kinda cool because it comes with a cloth to cover your keyboard which can be used to clean your screen.

marware is a great pad and iskin is a decent cover for the keyboard

Does it reduce the sensitivity of the touchpad much?
