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.

So I bought this along with it.. and it's amazing!! The color matches perfectly. Also, it was so easy to install! I was able to do it on my own and it is aligned perfectly. If you have any doubts.. BUY IT!!

  • Great Idea / Not a Perfect Match

    The idea here is great: We've all used a friend's MacBook at one point in time and gawked at the dirt left from the palms of your The idea here is great: We've all used a friend's MacBook at one point in time and gawked at the dirt left from the palms of your buddy's hands... GROSS! Of course you don't want the same when you finally spend your life's savings to invest in MacBook. Hence the reason for this product.

    The color is not a match. It was a good attempt, but sadly it is a bit darker than the actual MacBook Air. I've noticed that when I put the Tech21 Case on my MacBook Air, part of the protective film bunched up on one of the clips of the case. Not a big deal, but I don't have the time to take it off and put it on another 40 times.

    As far as the trackpad protector: STEER CLEAR! It makes the response from the touchpad horrible. There are disconnects every few centimeters where the trackpad will not recognize the motion of your finger and the cursor will stop. I decided after putting it on to take it off and just use the Magic Mouse for tracking and cursor functions.

    Good idea, but probably unnecessary to buy.

Parts of the palmrest and trackpad had bubbles! I re-applied making sure the bubbles were pushed out but after leaving on my desk for an hour i came back to more bubbles! After finally re applying for the 3rd time the bubbles went away. Kind of a hassle to have to reapply so many times, other than that its great!
