Mine fits my 13 inch Mac like a glove--it does not slide around and it cannot compare to Saran Wrap. There are four dogs and one cat in my household. Despite constant vacuuming, my house still gathers furballs and dirt dust dragged in from the dog pen. This keyboard protector does as it should. It keeps out the pet hair and the dust--a good thing when you consider the fact that the "guts" of the laptop are under the keyboard. Worth every penny. If you research other sites that sell this, you'll see that those who have purchased it feel just like me.

  • Pros and Cons for using Moshi with the MacBook Air

I would recomme This cover came as advertised, and I liked using it until I noticed that it seemed to be slowing down my computer. I would recommend using it only when you want to be especially quiet or when you are likely to get your computer dirty. I no longer use it for everyday use.

    Pros:
    The keyboard cover fits the keyboard perfectly.
    Typing is quieter with the cover on.
    The cover keeps the keyboard clean - no more accumulation of dirt and oil.

    Cons:
    The keys feel slightly less responsive. You type slower until you get used to the cover.
    The cover picks up oil from your fingers and deposits it on the screen.
    The cover causes the computer to get very hot and slow down. Networking in particular is much slower when the cover has been on for a while. It also seems to slow down the processor.

This thin protector fits perfectly, no sliding around on the keyboard at all. Easy to type through - I don't hardly feel it there. I often go from computer to cooking, and now I don't worry about wet/greasy fingers! Definitely worth it to protect my valuable investment.

  • Perfect fit but sluggish feel and sticky keys

    The cover fits perfectly and I really want to like it, however, the cover frequently settles in underneath the keys resulting in a The cover fits perfectly and I really want to like it, however, the cover frequently settles in underneath the keys resulting in a sluggish feel. Further, I subconsciously feel as if I need to press the keys more firmly in order to engage the key, which tires my fingers out. This is a big bummer, because one of the things I love most about apple computers is the buttery smooth responsiveness of the keyboard. I guess I'll just save the cover for times when I'm likely to drop or spill something on the keyboard. If you must use the cover full-time, then I recommend slightly offsetting it so the edge sits slightly on to of the key instead of snuggling fitting around it. This keeps the cover from wedging itself underneath the keys, avoiding the sluggish feel and the occasional sticky key. Note, I purchased the cover and used it with a brand new Macbook Pro 13, so there was no previous built up grit or grim to cause the sluggish feel. When I remove the cover the keyboard feels and works perfectly.

Its a bit expensive, but so would a spill on my keyboard. When this one wears out as I expect it will over time I will replace it again with the same identical product.

    It actually feels too waxy for silicone. Too costly for such a minimal sheet of silicone. There must be a better option.
