    Love the product!

    I had the Moshi PalmGuard on my previous white MacBook for over a year and a half and I loved it. 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!

    It was scary installing this palm guard because once it sticks...it sticks! Yet it fits perfectly, the silver color matches precisely and it does a great job of protecting one of the most vulnerable areas of my MacBook Pro

    A must-have product

    I absolutely love the Moshi Palmguard! I am using it with my 13" MacBook Pro. It fits perfectly. It is almost unnoticeable. I love the feel of it and it does not reduce the sensitivity of the trackpad. Again, this is a must-have product & I absolutely love it!

    Great Product

    Works great. No complaints here. Even feels good, not grippy on the trackpad. I recommend this product to anyone who wears watches etc.

    Well worth the money!

    I bought the Moshi PalmGuard and the keyboard protector along with my MacBook Pro. The application was easy. I just aligned the edges perfectly and worked my way in securing it. The color matches my MacBook perfectly so I can hardly tell that it's there.

    I've read the other reviews on here so I was worried about the trackpad losing sensitivity or responsiveness if I applied the trackpad portion of the guard, but I haven't noticed a difference. If anything, it improved it. I noticed that when I used it without the guard, my finger would occasionally "slip" and the cursor wouldn't move on my screen (especially after washing my hands). The sandpaper-like texture of the trackpad gives it a bit more "grip" when you're using your finger to maneuver.

    Great protection!

    I love this product. The application process is so easy with tabs to help you remove the sticky part from the paper. The color and texture match perfectly with my Macbook pro. I have long nails and would hate to ruin the surface of my Macbook, so this is exactly what I was looking for.

    Overall a great protection plan for your Macbook!

    Indispensable Product. Awesome Design.

    Well done Moshi!

    A great combination of form and function. The die-cut is perfectly aligned to the edges (for me at least) and the protection is IMHO clearly best of its kind, design and class. Also the feel is very natural and it is also very aesthetically pleasing to the eye as well.

    Unlike what others have reported I haven't experienced any decrease in sensitivity in the trackpad with the film in place. Gestures are fine and I find the feel a lot smoother. Also keep in mind that if you only plan to use only the palm rest guard without the trackpad film the trackpad will be slightly sunken as the material does add some thickness to the palm rest area and so the outer edges of the trackpad will obviously feel lower. Something to keep in mind I guess.

    Lastly maybe others might disagree but I like the little Moshi logo in lower right corner of the palm rest. It's just perfectly subtle for my tastes.

    Although I have none myself ... if I had to point out negatives that others might find when considering this product they'd be as such:

    - More or less a one-shot install. You need to be patient and line it up carefully. I start with the bottom edge. Re-applying is out of the question from the looks of it.

    - As with all products of this type you need to make sure the area is clean and wiped down prior to install. The material is very robust and clearly isn't one that will allow any trapped air or dust bubbles to escape out to the edges over time. I reckon any bubbles would be permanent. Take your time.

    - Doesn't fit well when used in combination with a RadTech Screensavrs cloth and/or silicone keyboard cover cloth as combination is too thick for magnetic latch to secure properly. Doesn't bother me, but it might bug some of you.

    That's all I got. Ciao.

    INFINITELY better than the older suede version!!

    I've gone through two of the older suede versions since I bought my macbook two years ago, and I love them for protecting my macbook, but they drive me nuts because for a student who's on their computer 8+ hours/day, it would just start looking dirty after a few months. So I was so excited when I saw that they improved the model in time for my second replacement. It's great and now (hopefully) I won't have to buy another one in 6-8 months!

    Great Product! Cheap Fix!

    I recently dropped my tv remote on the palm rest to the immediate right of the track pad. Of course, my treasured mbp gets its first dent, though minor, it stuck out like a sore thumb, to me at least. So I look at replacement pieces and to my dismay they easily run $300+ with installation. I find this product and not only does it protect the computer, it completely hides the blemish. Blends great with aluminum finish and feels "protective". Install can be tedious, but take your time, it will be worth it. Excellent Product only wish I had found it sooner...

    I received the palm guard in the mail and it took one simple easy stick to get it to line up correctly. I LOVE it. My previous laptops have gotten quite dirty for the palm area. It matches perfectly and feels great. My only complaint is I did have to remove the track pad part of it. The sensitivity wasn't great (I do graphic design, so this was important) and there came to a point where it wouldn't register when I moved my finger over it. But overall, fantastic product. I'm buying another one for my husband's MBP.

    Great function, excellent product!

    I have to be honest - I ordered this to bump my order up to $80 to get free shipping, but now I have it on (as of 5 minutes ago!) I love it!
    - Words cannot express how seamlessly it blends with the rest of the laptop body, and the application is easier than I thought. It's thicker than usual stickers so it doesn't bubble. The colour actually does match the laptop's silver!!
    - I know from my previous laptops that it's an important area to protect.
    - Highly recommended.

    Fit and Color are spot on!

    This shield is great! It provides great protection and the fit and color match my MBP-13" laptop perfectly. You can barely tell it's there! It's a great buy if you're looking to protect your wrist rest and trackpad from dull spots due to extended use.

    The ONLY negative I can see is that you do lose that smooth glass feeling of the trackpad. It is replaced with a very light texture, which is what will provide long wearing protection. It isn't enough to get annoyed with but it is worth noting that it has a little texture.

    Make sure you get this PalmGuard aligned properly the first time you put it on, as it's not repositionable. Once it's on your computer it virtually disappears! Great job MOSHI.

    Totally worth it...

    Brilliant piece of protection...it was easy to put on and what I love about it the most is how it prevents your MacBook from getting that shiny wear-and-tear look from excessive use.

    I was able to actually reset mine a couple times to get it right and it's holding in place so the statement of you can only place it once is not quite true.. Very happy with this item. its a perfect fit on mine..

    Good Product

    I bought this so that there wouldn't be any wear on the palm rest. Great product but it does come with a trackpad cover as well. I just wish that they would have said that in the description.

    Very Happy with Moshi

    Can't tell its there and feels like nothing is there too. Easy to install, I would recommend to install the palm portion first then line up the mouse part. I would recommend to friends & I would purchase again.

    When I got got my mac book I was scared I was going to scratch the arm rest area so I ordered this product. To my surprise it worked like a charm, fit perfectly, and blends in with the actual color of the laptop. Its amazing and I recommend it to anyone !

    Basically a perfect match!

    I bought this from moshi directly for my Early 2015 macbook pro retina. So this one may not fit perfectly, but if you go to mosh, you should find the right one for your macbook. It has stopped a lot of wear and tear on the bottom and trackpad of my laptop. I began noticing how grimy the trackpad looked compared to the keyboard area, which i had a keyboard cover on and decided to get the palm guard they offer. Contrary to what many people worry about, its thin enough that it lets my MBP close completely and the color difference isn't jarring whatsoever. Its definitely a quality product, the trackpad cover does cause the mouse to be slightly less sensitive, but it is your choice to put it on, and if you change some of the trackpad settings under system preferences than you won't even notice it. Maybe I'm being too cautious, but at least my macbook will be looking pristine for years to come!

    This is the most useful accessory I have had for my MacBooks. 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.
