Carapace—The Clear Choice in Mac Notebook and Desktop Keyboard Protection

In a world full of dirty fingers, food crumbs, and knocked-over beverages, your computer's keyboard is under the constant threat of damage. Why risk expensive Mac® notebook repair bills or ruining your desktop keyboard? Protect it with one of Sonnet's high-quality Carapace keyboard covers. Carapace encloses each key, and covers the spaces between to safeguard your keyboard from dust, crumbs, spills, and everyday mishaps.

Comfortable and Natural Typing Surface That Repels Dust Unlike Traditional Sticky Silicone Skins

Compared to traditional sticky silicone skins, Carapace's unique coating provides the dual benefits of being anti-static so as not to attract dust, and having a more natural feel so as to feel comfortable even during long typing periods. With Carapace in place, typing speed and accuracy are unaffected—its thin and flexible construction provides a clear view of the keys and dampens the sound of keystrokes.

Each Carapace keyboard cover is made of durable silicone, and is custom-designed and perfectly fitted to your keyboard to allow easy touch-typing in any sort of environment. You'll hardly notice it's there.
