Purchased product at a discount in exchange for my review. The product will protect the keys of your mac. I am underwhelmed about the look and fit. I purchased a Macbook Air this year so the placement of the lettering is off just enough to bother me. The entire top row of function keys and the power button are half the size of the keys on the cover. Will it prevent me from using the cover in coffee shop - no. Will I use this cover all the time as I had intended? No. The product is ok. I would like to note that I have not had the typing problem that many described in other reviews. I am by no means a speed typist though. I actually like the feel of the keys with the cover on. That is why I rated it three instead of two stars.
The cover does fit and letters are large and easy to see. Also, if you have back light on, you can see the lighting around the individual keys through the cover. One thing to note about this cover is that the silicone/printing on the keys is particularly tacky, so there can be a bit of traction as you type. I have owned other covers where the silicone/printing on the keys is much smoother. As you use it, I'm sure the "tacky" feeling would eventually go away as you "wear it in".
update: have only used this for over two weeks and the color and some letters are seriously wearing off already. this thing obviously was not made to last a long tie. find one with printing on the backside or that's clear (no color)
I loved the color of this cover, so I bought it immediately when I saw it on Amazon. I put it on my MacBook and only used it for 2 weeks when the gold color started changing.
I only use my laptop in class for taking notes, and I'm not using it while eating. I also don't have particularly greasy hands and I've used it for such a short time, so I was disappointed to see how low quality the cover was.
The gold color is true to the picture so if you change your covers frequently (like every week), I would purchase. Otherwise, I would look for a cover that's better quality.
