Official homepage: PalmGuard
The palmrests of the Macbooks are known for their discoloration. While one might think that Apple would have fixed this by now you still can find many threads in Mac forums where Macbook owners complain about discoloration. This is where moshi's Palmguard comes in to play.
The material used for the Palmguard is hard plastic. It is a sticker type of protection you have to apply to the palmrest area of the Macbook but what surprised me the most when opening the package and holding the Palmguard in my hands was the fact that the material is surprisingly hard. Don't get me wrong it is very thin and flexible but the material itself is very tough. If I had to summarize in one sentence: it feels like someone took the material of the original Macbook top case and formed an ultra thin protection layer.
Contents of the package
Obviously you get one piece to protect the top case of your Macbook (the bottom half of the top case). Included also is a small piece for your trackpad button that is made of the same material as the main piece. Finally, there is a transparent very thin sticker that you apply to the trackpad itself. A very neat extra that you'll find in the package is a plastic ruler (6 inches, black) which you are supposed to use to get the guards on properly.
Applying the Palmguard is very easy. There is actually nothing to say about it. Just align it correctly and use the included ruler to press and it's done. A little tip: When you get the alignment perfectly around the trackpad the Palmguard should be in the correct position.
The Design, feel, and fit
I truly love the design. The Palmguard just looks awesome on my white Macbook. Since the material which is used is very similar to the original top case it blends in very well. I especially like the little logo in the right bottom corner - now that is elegant understatement of the finest. The feel is very nice also. Because of the material which is used, there is no "sticky feeling" like with other palmrest protectors. The fit of the Palmguard is very exact, too.
To summarize: I think if you are on the search for palmrest protection only this is the one that fits the best (color-wise and material wise) and feels the best when resting your palms on it.
I recommend this product to all Macbook owners that want protection for the palmrest area and want to do it without attracting too much attention. From a distance you won't be able to notice the Palmguard because it doesn't reflect, because it matches the color of the top case very well and finally because there is no large company logo on it.
Is this the best palmrest protection I have tested so far? For my taste, yes, unless you want to customize the look of the top case (like the DeinDesign skins). If you are looking for solid protection that doesn't stand out, go for the Palmguard. At a price of 20$ I can truly recommend this product.
