Folks,

Any tips on preventing shiny key syndrome? Just bought a MBP and want to keep it as pristine as possible.


Cheers,

Get a bluetooth or usb keyboard so you never have to touch the built in keyboard Wink

Being serious though that and looking online for a keyboard cover are about your only options. If you get a cover watch out for the screen, it will probably rub on the screen when you close the lid. And that nice glossy screen wont be so glossy anymore.

A valid point, I hadn't thought of the 'rubber on the screen' issue. Thanks for your response.

Actually, anyone know if the keyboard is replaceable?

I can't vouch for the pro level but the macbook's keyboard is integrated into the top case.

Some of the earlier PowerBooks keyboards could actually come out pretty easy and could be unplugged from their bus. Haven't investigated the MBP's.

Here's a site with spare parts, my MBP does look a bit more sophisticated and appears to be built in to the top case in one form or another...depending on model of MBP you have:
