    Protection vs Heat
    Hi All,

    I ran a forum search before posting, but didn't find anything specifically asking about the effect things like keyboard & trackpad protectors, and body skins, have on the MBP's ability to stay cool...

    Any thoughts? Any experiences (positive or negative)? Any recommendations?

    iMac, MBP
    Good guess would be minimal though

    Well obviously, as long as the accessory that you buy doesn't cover the intakes for the fans, you should be ok.

    As far as I can tell, the Intake vents for the MBP is at the edge of each side of the keyboard (left and right).

    I know some of the keyboard protectors cover the edge of the keyboard as well... which is obviously bad.
