    A good accessory, but not perfectly color matched...

    • Written by from Dayton

    The fit and finish of this product are outstanding. 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.

    Very Good product

    Just bought this product and I am happy with the results. Installing was a breeze. However the claim of perfect color match is not accurate, it is slightly darker that the MBA but overall not a big deal. I would recommend not using the mouse guard because it completely removed the ability to tap, once its installed I had to enable press to click. So for those two things I will give it 4 stars.

    Good fit, but

    The fit and finish of the product is very nicely done but there is a major problem with this product: If you like the tap to click feature like i do, then the trackpad protection is useless to you.

    Good but..

    with the touch click, you can't use that. I just removed the touch part after a couple of hours, it was soo horrible to use. But, the palm guard is ok, nice color and fit, no bubbles, you don't feel it.

    Great Idea / Not a Perfect Match

    • Written by from Carrollton

    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.
