Keep your keyboard's keys from getting worn out
Authored by: petersconsult on May 03, '13 12:34:50AM

One thing against those silicone or rubber keyboard covers:
If you think your portable Mac (PowerBook, iBook, MacBook, MacBook Pro) runs too hot, or makes too much fan noise, avoid those covers!!
Apple has been relying for a while now (especially in the Aluminium MacBook Pro line) on the little space between your keys to release some of the heat inside your Mac. Covering it up with a rubber or silicone cover would mean losing a somewhat important (again, depending on the model) resource for cooling the internals of your Mac.
On a separate note, my mother uses hand creams all the time, and her MacBook Pro's keyboard looks like someone poured dirty sulfuric acid on it... I agree that hand chemistry has a lot to do with it....
Hope this helps,
