    13" Macbook Air 2013

    • Written by from WOOLLAHRA

    Its very thin but it is not a perfect fit and it moves around a lot: sometimes it comes entirely adrift. It needs to be tackier on the underside to stay in place. I type fast, though not in the approved touch typing style and I often get annoyed when the cover moves. Its not quite the right size so the left or right hand end doesn't fit closely over the keys. I put up with it - my last Macbook died after one too many glasses of wine ended up in the innards...

    Heavy typing

    • Written by from Barnstaple

    I would agree with one other reviewer that this is great for protecting your keyboard from spills and dust but otherwise I am not impressed with it. If you touch-type and are used to typing reasonably fast, it really slows you down because of the increased resistance of the keys. I have noticed that my fingers, arms and shoulders are much more tired when using the keyboard with the cover on, something to consider if you type a lot. I also personally do not like the feel of it. It feels ever so slightly tacky, like it has once been smeared with jam that has been wiped off so that only a very slight residue remains.

    Not for fast typers

    • Written by from Aalborg C

    The thing is, this thing is great for protecting your keyboard from filth, dust and rubble. But that's it.

    If you type any faster than you would, just using a pair of index fingers, you are going to get annoyed with this. It feels bad typing with it, and what's worse, it slows your typing speed considerably. I now only use it when im not typing(to keep it clean), or if im having a snack whilst typing.

    Slides around in use

    • Written by from Liverpool

    Really disappointed after reading the other reviews to find how badly fitting and inconvenient the protector is. It slides around for the slightest contact and even though it will protect the keyboard, I can't see my patience lasting with this product. It slows down my work too much.

    I'd say it works best for long periods of typing but when you're moving frequently from mouse to keyboard the sliding around is crazily annoying.

    I've got the 15 inch macbook pro. Does anyone else with this model have the same problem? Perhaps main source of problem is that it doesn't quite fit the function keys. Or perhaps my fingers are too sweaty? The protector often sticks to them. Don't buy if you have hot hands.
