Twelve South SurfacePad for MacBook
One of Twelve South’s earliest accessories, SurfacePad ($30), has been redesigned for 2013. Now available for both sizes of the MacBook Air, as well as 13” and 15” non-Retina MacBook Pros, the already minimalistic design of the leather palm rest has been slimmed down even further. Why isn’t there a Retina version? Twelve South links to this Apple article, which says the tolerances are too tight for such accessories.
SurfacePad is now a single rounded rectangle of napa leather, with adhesive holding it in place around your Mac’s trackpad, and stopping just short of the edges. It comes in either red or black, and doesn’t interfere with the computer’s lid. This edition of the protector is $10 less than the previous version, a more reasonable price to pay—and a nice insurance policy against wear and tear from sweaty palms.
