    Is any local shops selling keyboard protectors and snap-on cases for the late 2008 Macbook Pro?

    I tried the Macbook Air's protector and the buttons are bigger than Macbook Pro. I recently discovered that Macbook works with the unibody.

    When I bought my MBP at iStudio they gave me the a keyboard protector for free and it's for the Macbook Air (although I have not used it yet, but their demo unit uses the same protector)

    Temporarily I am using MacTop's Keyboard Skin from my MBP on my MacBook. It's not a perfect fit but at least I have something. I just remove it when I close the lid so it wont have direct contact on the screen.

    Of course, got it from Pods, Trinoma.

    I noticed that oil shows up too easily on the black keys.

    IMHO, better remove it especially if you don't have a screen protector. Or you can use that silver foam-like cover muna if you don't want to remove the keyboard skin (that's what I do :))

    I tried the previous macbook screen protector on the new one and it's too small. It does cover the viewable screen but the black outline is left out. I guess they will be coming out with the new screen protector (and track pad protector) for the new macbook.

    im sure it wont, yup they have the same viewable screen size but the new Macbook/Pro has a much bigger screen overall because of the glass in front/top of it.

    Anyone know where Zagg/InvisibleShield can be bought locally for the new MB/MBP? I know it can be purchased at their website but it takes about a month for one to be delivered to a Phil. address.

    Thanks!

    butcher - capdase (spelling???) is a nice keyboard protector. I got mine when i bought my MB. Ok siya. They have the clear/white one and the darker one.

    skinhead - yeah it doesn't fit. tried it kanina sa DW VMall. Only the viewable screen is covered by the protector.
