    After seeing the rave reviews here, I expected a lot from this product.

    The main palm rest is great...not exactly the best fit, but it still appears to be worth the price. My last laptop had a big spot worn in right there, so I welcome anything that will prevent that.

    The part that goes on the trackpad - junk. Instead of feeling smooth like the trackpad, it's rough and gritty feeling...meaning I'm sure it'll get nasty looking with my finger dragging over it for 5-6 hours every day. On top of the gritty feel, it hinders the trackpad's sensitivity just a bit. Now when I tap to click, it rarely works on the first try. I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually, but it looks horrid anyway, so I'll probably end up scrapping the trackpad piece.

    That brings me to my only other complaint. The pieces aren't an exact fit, so you have try and center the pieces so that the gap is even on each side...otherwise your MacBook will have uneven gaps between touchpad and body....looking like a car that's been wrecked and the door doesn't line up evenly with the body.

    Bottom line...it's an OK product and probably worth protecting the palm area from scratches. But five star reviews people? Really?

It kept the palm area clean and unscratched and was extremely easy to install. The material didn't wear in the entire time I used it. I was a bit skeptical about the PalmGuard for the new unibody MacBook because I figured it would be difficult to color-match the material to the aluminum. I decided to give it a shot since I liked the white one so much. So far its been great! It protects the palm area and track pad just like the older version that I had, and despite my skepticism is matches the color perfectly! I highly recommend this product for anyone who is looking to protect their MacBook!

I bought it about 4.5 years ago for my first MacBook after noticing the wear on a friends that wasn't more than a year old, and I love it. It went on easily, was a great match of colour and just had an overall feel of quality, all while remaining fairly inexpensive. What I also found incredible was when i got a new MacBook after about 2 years, I was able to peel it off and easily reapply it to my new one with no issues, it re-stuck perfectly, and still no air bubbles to this day, with relatively minimal wear, likely a lot less than would exist on the actual trackpad without it. Contrary to what others have said, I have never even one time experienced any reduction in trackpad sensitivity on either MacBook I have used it on, the trackpad has always remained perfectly responsive, including all tap functions and multi gesture functions.

    1) Other reviewers are correct, this is not an exact "color match"
    2) Sticker does NOT fit, I had to cut it down to fit my 13", and it looks shoddy and cheap now
    3) The "sticker" meant to go on the trackpad is a joke. It does not stay stuck, and it is not sized properly for my track pad. Further, you can not use the trackpad with the sticker on, the on-screen cursor "gets sticky" and does not move the on screen cursor! Basically, this protective sticker prevents you from using your trackpad without having a headache.
    4) I don't know why these products are sold, tailored to Apple products, when they don't even fit. Feels bait-and-switch-y.

Don't buy it for new Macbooks.
