If you’ve ever owned a MacBook Pro, you know that Apple’s whole line of premium laptops are built to last. The only downside to that durability? Over time, your fingers may actually wear away the letters on your keyboard. If you want to protect your keys from wear, tear, and food crumbs, a keyboard cover is a smart purchase. Here are five MacBook Pro keyboard covers we really like. The keyboard covers on our list will work with 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook models. Some accessories on the list are also available in variant sizes that should work with older, non-Retina MacBooks, or old-model 17-inch MacBooks.
