iSkin laptop keyboard protectorMy beloved new MacBook is now as much a part of my kitchen table as the napkin stand but, in such a high-traffic spot, my laptop is in constant danger of a small person dribbling a juice box over the keys. Instead of constantly playing defense, I now use protection with iSkin


Despite its brand name — second only to the iPad in its unfortunate mental imagery — iSkin makes a smart ProTouch Keyboard Protector that should make computer-loving moms jump for joy.

This thin silicone covering lays across a laptop’s keys, with raised key for easier typing and no slippage. It took me about a day to get used to the feeling of the silicone under my fingers, but now I don’t even notice it.

The iSkin protects the keyboard from drips, dust and dirt getting inside a computer, which is quite the lifesaver for us work-at-home moms, or those of us who allow the kids to bang on the keys from time to time. But this isn’t a watertight seal, so don’t expect that you can suddenly float in the pool and Twitter. –Christina
