A good accessory, but not perfectly color matched...
The fit and finish of this product are outstanding. I had an aluminum PowerBook G4 that suffered from the dreaded "pitting" proble The fit and finish of this product are outstanding. I had an aluminum PowerBook G4 that suffered from the dreaded "pitting" problem- I have a lot of acid in my sweat which ate through the aluminum, leaving "pits" in the surface. Naturally, I didn't want to take that chance with my new MacBook Air. The fit is perfect. It is not however, color matched- it is slightly darker, but does not take away from the overall look. It's also a good idea to apply this if others are going to try your laptop (and with a beautiful piece of kit like the MacBook Air, everyone will want to). I would always cringe when someone wearing a bracelet or watch would use my computer, but no longer! It does not impede the magnetic closure latch either- highly recommended. The slightly un-matched color is my only criticism. …

Very Good product

Installing was a breeze. However the claim of perfect color match is not accurate, it is slightly darker that the MBA but overall not a big deal. I would recommend not using the mouse guard because it completely removed the ability to tap, once its installed I had to enable press to click. So for those two things I will give it 4 stars. …

This, and the Moshi 13" iGlaze Shell Case for MacBook Air, are must have items to protect your MBA!! I love the aluminum finish of This, and the Moshi 13" iGlaze Shell Case for MacBook Air, are must have items to protect your MBA!! I love the aluminum finish of the MBA and wanted to keep it in pristine condition. After reviewing several options on YouTube, I picked this up via the Apple online store. It is very easy to install (check some YouTube videos – hint: tape it to the keyboard for perfect alignment first, then remove the backing in two sections). The guard color matches the metal finish of the MBA perfectly.
Note: I chose to NOT use the trackpad protector that is included as the trackpad protector is reported to diminish the sensitivity of the single tap function. The minimal width of the palmguard left me with no noticeable tactical difference and no issues with closing the case. However, the sensitivity issue of the trackpad protector appears to be universal and not specific to Moshi. Therefore, I still rated it 5 stars. …
