    Bought the newest Macbook Pro 13" and doesn't fit

    • Written by from Downingtown

    Seems like this fits perfect on older Macbook Pros; however, I literally just purcahses the newest 13" and it's cut too large so it hangs off by a quarter inch on each side. Don't buy it for new Macbooks.

    It's a very nice palm rest

    • Written by from Antigonish

    The colour match is seamless and it is a great protector against scratches.

    I am disappointed however with how the packaging was sent for the product (it was a gigantic box full of bubble wrap for something that could have fit in an envelope). Also, when applying the protector to the computer you must remove a tab that is connected to the back for easy peel back - unfortunately that tab is stuck to the front with a bit of glue which cannot be removed. In an attempt to remove the adhesive the protector has now been permanently stained orange (which may be a base to the material the protector is made of... I am not sure) in the one corner. It does not accent the new laptop at all very well... =(

    Partially Perfect

    • Written by from Marshalltown

    The main part of this product, the palmguard, is incredible! 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.

    Disappointing product

    • Written by from South grafton

    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.

    Trackpad guard

    • Written by from Melville

    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.

    Decent purchase

    • Written by from Chicago

    The palmguard was easy to put on. You can unstick it and replace if you place it down incorrectly. It comes in two stickers - the small tracking pad sticker and the bigger sticker. Even though this is supposed to fit my macbook pro 13", the bigger sticker is a little longer on the sides which required me to cut it down a little (hence 4 stars instead of 5). Other than that, the gritty texture that people have been talking about is a non-issue for me; it's not gritty to me. I have not had any trouble with the tracking pad sticker either. I do not have to press down any harder than usual; it is still sensitive. I'm just glad to have something to protect the bottom of my computer which gets awfully dirty.

    Excellent Product

    • Written by from Sydney

    This Palmguard is amazing! Excellent quality, feels very similar to the aluminium, extremely easy to apply. There are some bad reviews that I read about the trackpad protector but from my experience it is very responsive. With the glass on the trackpad my fingers would have a lot of friction if my hands were a bit moist, but this does not occur with the trackpad protector and actually feels smoother. And if anyone is worried about this product not fitting with the Speck SeeThru case, don't be! it fits perfectly and doesn't peel or bubble up at the sides. Although its a bit on the pricey side, it is really worth the money if you want to protect your Macbook from scratches or wear. The product is hard to find in stores/apple stores so the best way is to purchase directly from the apple online store, and their service is incredibly efficient and fast.

    Moshi 13" PalmGuard

    • Written by from ILFRACOMBE

    Macbook Air 2011, 13" screen.

    Fits very well and good colour match. Need to remove hard cover if you have one to prevent it lifting where clips are.

    Trackpad cover is not such a good fit and the response of the trackpad when fitted I found to be poor. Have since removed.

    Overall the palm guard is good but a little over priced and the trackpad is a little bit of a let down. That said it does provide a nice level of protection to a heavily used area of the Macbook Air.

    Tap to click does not work properly

    • Written by from Mulgrave

    I like to look and feel but it seems to me that tap to click does not work properly with the palm guard. I am now feeling ripped off wiith the prize I've paid for this product. Also needing to figure out how to ripped it off without damaging my track pad :-(

    Great Product

    Works great. No complaints here. Even feels good, not grippy on the trackpad. I recommend this product to anyone who wears watches etc.

    I got this wanting to preserve my Mac as best as possible. The overall fit isn't perfect. There is a little gap on both side. The palm guard is a rough, gritty feeling. It isn't smooth at all, same with the track pad. The guard really hinders the tack pad's sensitivity. I can no longer "tap to click" which is something I like a lot rather than clicking. The color of the guard is a little darker than the actual Mac body. I might end up not using the track pad cover at all.

    A must-have product

    • Written by from Vinemont

    I absolutely love the Moshi Palmguard! I am using it with my 13" MacBook Pro. It fits perfectly. It is almost unnoticeable. I love the feel of it and it does not reduce the sensitivity of the trackpad. Again, this is a must-have product & I absolutely love it!

    Good, but ridiculously overpriced

    • Written by from Billingshurst

    Yeah it works, it feels nice and soft and stable. Seems like it'll last a while, but I cannot help but feel for a sticker on my Macbook just under £20 is a bit of a rip off. However, it does fit well, and, if like me, the appearance of your MBP (aka no scratches!) is important, I'd say bite the bullet just to protect your MBP.

    Well worth the money!

    • Written by from Antioch

    I bought the Moshi PalmGuard and the keyboard protector along with my MacBook Pro. The application was easy. I just aligned the edges perfectly and worked my way in securing it. The color matches my MacBook perfectly so I can hardly tell that it's there.

    I've read the other reviews on here so I was worried about the trackpad losing sensitivity or responsiveness if I applied the trackpad portion of the guard, but I haven't noticed a difference. If anything, it improved it. I noticed that when I used it without the guard, my finger would occasionally "slip" and the cursor wouldn't move on my screen (especially after washing my hands). The sandpaper-like texture of the trackpad gives it a bit more "grip" when you're using your finger to maneuver.

    INFINITELY better than the older suede version!!

    • Written by from Edwardsville

    I've gone through two of the older suede versions since I bought my macbook two years ago, and I love them for protecting my macbook, but they drive me nuts because for a student who's on their computer 8+ hours/day, it would just start looking dirty after a few months. So I was so excited when I saw that they improved the model in time for my second replacement. It's great and now (hopefully) I won't have to buy another one in 6-8 months!

    very high quality product

    • Written by from Surry Hills

    I bought a Macbook pro 4 months ago and since day 1, there have been white patches 'growing' in the anodised aluminium where my palms and wrists sit. The areas of the metal are oxidising with the air which is evident when you clean the surface and the blemishes return like magic as soon as the cleaning fluid residue evaporates and the metal is exposed to the air again. This doesn't happen to many people. It apparently depends on the acidity of your sweat. Anyway, Apple listened to me and agreed to replace the aluminium body as a one off exception - so as soon as it came back, I bought one of these moshi palm guards.
    It fits perfectly, it looks neat and discreet, the colour matching is spot on and it feels great. I left the trackpad guard off though. The glass trackpad is not showing any signs of wear at all anyway. I kind of feel it is a shame that I have to put anything on the macs case in the first place as it is a beautiful piece of engineering, but the moshi is so cleanly cut and well manufactured that it actually is a nice accessory to have. Even if Mac decided not to replace the unibody, this palm guard would have covered the problem area perfectly anyway. Definitely worth a purchase if you are serious about looking after your equipment.

    Great protection!

    • Written by from Ajax

    I love this product. The application process is so easy with tabs to help you remove the sticky part from the paper. The color and texture match perfectly with my Macbook pro. I have long nails and would hate to ruin the surface of my Macbook, so this is exactly what I was looking for.

    Overall a great protection plan for your Macbook!

    Protection, but with bad fit.

    • Written by from St. Andrews

    It looks nice on besides the fact that the trackpad piece is actually too small for the trackpad so there's an ugly space all around it in which particles collect. The right side of the palm piece keeps peeling up every couple of days. Not majorly, but I have to smooth it out. The feel is like sandpaper, especially on the trackpad. I'll use it because I paid for it and my macbook needs protection, but it's not the best product.
