MediaDevil Typeguard Clear edition keyboard protec&hellip by MediaDevil
5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 9 July 2013
Great product. I hardly notice it's there, and I really need something like this after destroying my previous Macbook with liquid. Not to mention that with skin problems that require me to constantly lubricate my skin, it's really easy for my expensive new computer to get nasty and sticky way too fast from moisturisers and ointments I have to use constantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb opening story, 23 Jan 2013
