Question: Is it safe to use keyboard cover on MacBook Pro 2017?


The keyboard get dirty so easily, I mean everything this new MacBook Pro has is just terrible. I saw my friend's MacBook Air 2012 and I just can't the believe how good its quality still remain all over this year while my new MBP is already scratch and the screen broken because I put it the bag??? Now back to the question. Will it break my screen? There is already a few scratch inside the top layer of my screen. While my friend enjoy throwing around his old MacBook air, I can't even get any productivity out of it because I'm caring so much even open and close it and still the screen is break.......

What about using a mikrofiber cloth like the Radtech’s screensavrz for the MBP 13 (2017)? Or using the Moshi clearguard keyboard cover together with the iVisor screenprotector? Why does apple continue to sell the Moshi keyboard cover if you’re not supposed to use it?

You are free to choose ONE of:

• never closing the cover completely (or risk breaking the glass at the bottom of the screen)

• never installing anything between the keyboard and the display [in which case you may close the top cover whenever you wish]
