Macessity Keyboard Shields

Macessity has released a new line of silicone keyboard protectors for Apple's MacBook and MacBook Pro product lines. Currently, the new guard will be available only in a frosted clear finish, which matches the majority of Apple's line of white plastic or light metal cases, while complimenting the Black MacBook's matte finish. The new Keyboard Shield for the MacBook is designed to cover most of the keyboard and areas including the palm rest and mouse click button. Much like the MacBook's Keyboard Shield variant, the MacBook Pro version covers the keyboard, but does not cover the palm rest or mouse button. Both shields are made with a soft silicone which leaves the keys visible while offering protection from any grift or liquid dropped upon the keyboard. Macessity is shipping two models today; both cost $20. [images included

    Toast your Macbook

    I have seen someone almost toast their Macbook with one of these type of keyboard protectors.....a tremendous amount of heat is released past the keys and this protector would block it.....althought with a iBook it worked great.
