Pros: 3 in 1 protection, well made, does it's job
Cons: no cushion in protective sleeve, discoloring on protective wristpad, unobtrusive
I had an IBook G4 previously, and there was a very apparent discoloration on the left side of the wristpad and it was very annoying, it took away from the clean white of the IBook. I wanted to do things right with the MacBook this time so I got a protection pack. It comes with a PVC leather wristpad protector, a keyboard cover and a protective sleeve.
The wristpad protector is reuseable, meaning you can stick it on, take it off, and put it back on with no problems. I haven't had to take it off since placing it on was pretty simple and straightforward. The wristpad protector is made of thin PVC leather and is rather comfortable. The white doesn't match my MacBook white perfectly but it's nothing too bothersome. The macbook is more of a plastic-y white (which it is, duh) and the wristpad leather handrest is more of a pure white. Nevertheless, I don't have to worry anymore that I'm going to have some terrible discoloration on my wristpad. However, I DO notice some discoloration on the wristpad protector itself, it's not as apparent as it was on the ibook, but I can see it if I look for it. I don't know if I have some wierd dirty wrists or what, but a discolored wristpad area must be in my stars... But at least I know I can replace the protective wristpad if needed.
The wristpad also has cutouts towards the bottom for where the lid comes in contact with it when it closes. It does not interfere whatsoever with the natural state of the MacBook when the lid is closed.
The keyboard cover is made of a soft microfiber material, it fits perfectly on top of your keyboard. This can prevent dust from settling on the keyboard, and also helps prevent fingerprint oils from transferring to the LCD screen when you close the lid. You can also use this to clean the LCD screen. I find it does it's job well, removing dust and smudges.
The protective sleeve is made of the same material as the keyboard cover, except that it's 'ultra-soft' instead of just 'soft', but you get the idea. The MacBook fits snugly inside, it doesn't exactly slide right on the MacBook, since its so snug, so it might take a little effort, but once it's on it fits nicely. This wil prevent any scratches from finding their way onto the MacBook, but it might not save the end that is left exposed since it doesn't zip closed or anything. It will definitely not help your MacBook any if you drop it, or drop something heavy on it, since the sleeve is very thing and not cushioned. This is ideal for light transport in a backpack or inside another laptop case.
