    After seeing the rave reviews here, I expected a lot from this product.

    The main palm rest is great...not exactly the best fit, but it still appears to be worth the price. My last laptop had a big spot worn in right there, so I welcome anything that will prevent that.

    The part that goes on the trackpad - junk. Instead of feeling smooth like the trackpad, it's rough and gritty feeling...meaning I'm sure it'll get nasty looking with my finger dragging over it for 5-6 hours every day. On top of the gritty feel, it hinders the trackpad's sensitivity just a bit. Now when I tap to click, it rarely works on the first try. I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually, but it looks horrid anyway, so I'll probably end up scrapping the trackpad piece.

    That brings me to my only other complaint. The pieces aren't an exact fit, so you have try and center the pieces so that the gap is even on each side...otherwise your MacBook will have uneven gaps between touchpad and body....looking like a car that's been wrecked and the door doesn't line up evenly with the body.

    Bottom line...it's an OK product and probably worth protecting the palm area from scratches. But five star reviews people? Really?

It kept the palm area clean and unscratched and was extremely easy to install. The material didn't wear in the entire time I used it. I was a bit skeptical about the PalmGuard for the new unibody MacBook because I figured it would be difficult to color-match the material to the aluminum. I decided to give it a shot since I liked the white one so much. So far its been great! It protects the palm area and track pad just like the older version that I had, and despite my skepticism is matches the color perfectly! I highly recommend this product for anyone who is looking to protect their MacBook!

It is a perfect fit, despite what others have said, as long as you take your time applying it, you will be extremely pleased. (Plus, unlike many skins or adhesive add-ons, this can be removed and re-applied, so if you mess up, take it off and try again). The color match is near perfect, only give-a-way is the line at the top from the level change, which I thought might lift and peel after time but the adhesive is great and I've had absolutely no problems with it.

    The reason I say "partially perfect" is because of the trackpad skin. It definitely affects the use of the trackpad, I noticed it right after application when trying to "tap to select" and sometimes when trying to use multi-finger gestures and noticing it is unable to register how many fingers are being used. I'd think making this thinner could solve that problem, but until a resolution I will keep it on because in the end, it is successful at its job, keeping oil from skin off the trackpad and reducing wear.

    i bought this to protect my Macbook Pro 13" Retina display. It is bigger and palm rest does not fit the model. I had to use it rig i bought this to protect my Macbook Pro 13" Retina display. It is bigger and palm rest does not fit the model. I had to use it right away so i ended up cutting the edges and using it now. It's 1 star product but additional star is for a perfect fit on touchpad.

    I do not recommend this product.

    I removed my trackpad guard just now. It just wouldn't work for tap functions because of less sensitivity. In my opinion, its too I removed my trackpad guard just now. It just wouldn't work for tap functions because of less sensitivity. In my opinion, its too thick for tapping but it will work on clicks.
    As for the PalmGuard, basically it serves its purpose.Hope this helps.
