Made from soft, premium leather, SurfacePad Colors is a fun way to give your MacBook a distinct, custom look that stands out in classrooms, coffee shops and anyplace else MacBook goes. Along with making a colorful statement, SurfacePad Colors provides a layer of protection that keeps the surface around the keyboard deck free of scratches and those distinct discoloration marks your wrists leave after regular use. The bright white finish of your Mac will be retained without adding bulk.

“Users love the rainbow of iPods and iPhone cases available to them. When they want to accessorize their MacBook the same way, there wasn’t many options. SurfacePad Colors provides a great way to personalize a MacBook with a nice pop of color that not only protects the MacBook from scratches and stains, it makes it more comfortable to use as well,” said Andrew Green of Twelve South.


SurfacePad Colors also provide a nice cushiony surface that makes long stretches on MacBook easier on the wrists. Apply the color of your choice and you instantly have a cooler looking Mac that is more comfortable to work on. At a mere .7 mm thin, SurfacePad does not interfere with your MacBook closing and going to sleep.

These leather shields stay in place using a special adhesive that leaves no trace or sticky residue. More importantly, the adhesive allows you to reposition the one-piece SurfacePad for super-easy installation. You can even remove SurfacePad entirely for a short period of time letting you collect and switch colors as often as you wish.
