Screen Keyboard Protectors for PB 15"

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
I just got my PB 15" and I was wondering if there is a problem with the keyboard rubbing on the screen and making marks or scratches. Looking through the back of a Macworld mag I saw like felt blanket sold that goes between the keyboard and the screen for that exact reason. Is this unessasary or not? My PB travels in a carrying case with me everywhere and I normally baby it like crazy but I just want to be on the safe side.

Thanks in adv,

    I'm paranoid about my screen (and battery etc) too. I've got some piece of fabric that was in some old Powerbook ('99 or earlier) so no clue where it was bought.. J&R probably.

    iSkin for your keyboard may be enough to protect the screen. And the skin is very smooth to touch too, and it'll take care of the keyboard too.

    I had problems with that with my Titanium Powerbook. I bought a thin foam screen protector, but it seemed to thick and I thought it was putting to much pressure on the hinges. So I did not use it

    The keyboard did leave marks on the screen that were very noticeable when the screen was off, but I never noticed them while the computer was on.

    But when I got my new 17 in. Powerbook (I did not know if it had the same problem, but did not want to take the chance) I found a thin leather screen protector from:

    It is very thin and works great.
