Using iSkin on Macbook

I recently bought an iSkin for my MacBook keyboard to protect it from dust and other things that can get inside. I was wondering if people who also use the iSkin have experienced any problems with it because of the heat the macbook generates. I am kinda worried about it melting and getting stuck to the keyboard or just it becoming so hot that it gets sticky or really maleable. Thanks.
MacBook 13.3" White, 1GB RAM, 60GB HD   Mac OS X (10.4.7)  

Thanks for the responses, I bought my MacBook about 3 days ago, it is a week 25 model. When I am running apps like Safari, Adium, iTunes etc the temp is around 55-60 degrees Celcius. When I have big apps open like Photoshop, Garageband and WoW it is anywhere from 61-75 degrees. To answer your question Willett, nope the iSkin does not move around, it stays right on top of my keys and doesnt move at all. It also doesnt leave any marks on my screen but that is because I have the Marware kit that has the palm rest guard and the keyboard cover so the iSkin never touches the screen when I close it. Thanks again for the speedy responses.

  • I have 2 macbooks each with an account for me and one for my wife. I use one Macbook logged in with my account and my wife uses the other Macbook only loged in on her account. We both make regular time-machine back-ups each on a separate external disk

    I have 2 Macbooks each with an account for me and one for my wife. I use one Macbook logged in with my account and my wife uses the other Macbook only logged in on her account. We both make regular time-machine back-ups each on a separate external disk. Is it possible to update her account on my macbook using her external disk without overwriting my stuff on the same Macbook and vice versa?

    Time Machine does not do individual accounts. It records the complete drive. So if you were to use her TM backup on your Mac it would make your Mac just like hers. Both yours and her account on your MAC.
    Just copy the missing files over from her Mac to yours. If there are differennt programs on each then they would need to be installed on both.

  • Is there a way to use two macs to run one app? I want to use my two macbook pros processors in a shared capacity.

    I have two macbook pros a 2.4ghz and a 2.2ghz. Is there a way to use the other macbook pro to help with any cpu intensive apps like audio and video apps. I haven't had much luck on finding anything about sharing resources. It would be awesome if you could link up two macs and use both of them to power through processor intensive tasks.

    Yep here you go.

    Migration Assistant (Finder > Applications > Utilities > Migration Assistant) is the tool that you would use to restore backups from older Macs to another Mac.
    Details are here:   http://pondini.org/OSX/MigrateLion.html   The same info applies for Mavericks and Yosemite.   If you are saying that this is a "no go".....where are you getting stuck?  What error messages do you see?

  • Can I use my old macbook as a disk drive for my new iMac?

    My husband just bought me a new new iMac (yey!) but had assumed it would have a dvd drive (as you do).  It doesn't.  So can I use my old Macbook to upload cds and dvds and somehow import to my itunes on my new computer?

    As long as your Macbook is up-to-date.  Go to system preferences>Internet and Wireless>Sharing>check mark CD/DVD sharing.

  • Can I use my old Macbook Pro as an external disc drive while installing Windows 7 through boot camp?

    I want to install the Windows 7 CD on the newest version of the 2013 Macbook pro 10.9.2 running OSX Mavericks, through Boot Camp.  It does not have a disc port, nor do I have an external disc drive....but I do have an older macbook that does have a disc drive and I know you can supplement it for an external disc drive.
    My question is can I use my old Macbook pro's as an external disc drive for the installation of Windows 7 in Boot camp? Will this be a problem? Or do I have to buy an external disc drive separately.

  • I'm using a 15" Macbook Pro running OSX6.8 and cannot upgrade. I have a subscription to Adobe CC but none of these work on this so I was on with Adobe for 5 hours trying to install and launch Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Muse, and Acrobat Pro from CS

    I'm using a 15" Macbook Pro running OSX6.8 and cannot upgrade. I have a subscription to Adobe CC but none of these work on this so I was on with Adobe for 5 hours trying to install and launch Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Muse, and Acrobat Pro from CS6. Well, InDesign is the only one that works and I have a ton of work due! I don't have a serial number for Photoshop or Illustrator except for CS3, and they don't work. InDesign gave me no problems. Illustrator says it can't work on this machine. Photoshop needs a serial number. I'm stumped and getting anxious and freaked out. Can anyone help? Adobe Chat is down right now.

    if you have a cc subscription, close ps > sign out and then back in to your cc desktop > open ps.
    ai cs6 requires:
    Multicore Intel processor with 64-bit support
    Mac OS X v10.6.8 or v10.7. Adobe Creative Suite 5, CS5.5, and CS6 applications support Mac OS X v10.8 and v10.9 when installed on Intel-based systems.*
    2 GB of RAM (8 GB recommended)
    2 GB of available hard-disk space for installation; additional free space required during installation (cannot install on a volume that uses a case-sensitive file system or on removable flash storage devices)
    1024 x 768 display (1280 x 800 recommended) with 16-bit video card

  • HT1981 I will use my 110V MacBook in the Philippines which has 220V sockets. Will the World Travel Adapter Kit help me?

    I will use my 110V MacBook in the Philippines which has 220V sockets. Will the World Travel Adapter Kit help me?

    Assuming you're in North America now, you probably won't need any sort of plug adaptor there; most sockets in the Philippines are the same as those in North America. In case you do, it doesn't contain the correct adaptor.
    Voltage conversion is handled by the MacBook without any additional components.

  • I am now using a different MacBook Pro, and want to install my CC, I have done that and downloaded the Photoshop App but its a trial version. How do I get the full version of the apps?

    I had a new MacBook Pro that was damaged and I am now using a different MacBook pro as my primary computer (running yosemite 10.10.1).
    I did uninstall the Creative Cloud off the old MacBook before I stopped using it.
    I have downloaded the Creative Cloud and signed in using my adobe username and password, but when I went to download the Photoshop App it is only giving me the TRIAL VERSION.
    How do I make sure that the apps are the full version that I have already paid for? (I do know that my subscription is still current)
    Thanks for your help
    - Shawn

    Shawn I would recommend utilizing the steps in Sign in, activation, or connection errors | CC, CS6, CS5.5 - http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/activation-network-issues.html to resolve the connection error which is likely preventing the software from authenticating.

  • I recently purchased, from the APP store, Lion for use on my MacBook Pro.  I wish to upgrade my IMac to Lion also.  Do I need to make a 2nd purchase or will the single purchase suffice?  If the single purchase will suffice, how do I facilitate ?

    I recently purchased, from the APP store, Lion for use on my MacBook Pro.  To upgrade my IMac to Lion, need I make an additional purchase?  If not, how do I facilitate the IMac upgrade?

    No, you do not need to re purchase Lion. You can re download Lion on all your authorized Macs using the same Apple ID.
    How to re download apps from the Mac App Store:
    Open the App Store. From the menu bar click Store > Sign In
    Click Purchases from the top of the App Store window.
    Select which apps you want to re download. Then right or control click where you see Installed  then click Install.

  • How do I set up my AT&T Beam USB modem to use on my MacBook Pro?

    I purchased the AT&T Beam after the salesperson at AT&T told me it wouldn't be a problem to use with my MacBook Pro.  When I received it, the instructions were bare minimum which didn't help me at all.  So, I plug it into my USB and nothing happens.  How do I get my MacBook to recognize it?

    It is all a bit confusing. AT&T product pages for the AT&T Beam (AC340U) do not appear to say anything about Mac OS X support, but a "Device How-To Center" page does. The latter also mentions Netgear as the manufacturer. At a Netgear site, the following page could be found:
    http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/23444
    I do not know whether or not the web page above (or the problem/procedure described) is at all relevant to your very modem and the network operator in question. I agree with LowLuster, do contact AT&T tech support and ask them to sort things out.
    Generally speaking, I do also agree with Linc Davis about USB mobile broadband modems. The need for special driver software often leads to difficulties. A mobile broadband hotspot (3G or 4G), using Wi-Fi for the local wireless connection, is usually a better solution. An added advantage is that the hotspot location can be changed for optimal radio reception from the mobile tower.

    As long as it's USB, any one will work (If you're only using it for your Mac, then use Disk Utility to Partition it as GUID/HFS+).
