Top ReviewsNOT Made for the A1181!!!

I like this keyboard cover, however, the description states that it's made for the A1181 & it IS NOT! The function keys are not labeled correctly. This doesn't prevent me from using the cover, BUT, since I'm a relatively new Mac user, I had to put a "sticky note" on my desktop to remember what the F keys actually do, since they are labeled incorrectly.
As far as using the cover, I really like the way it feels when typing. It's also nice to be able to just clean the cover rather than having to dig or blow stuff out of the keys. I also purchased an iPearl case (pink), so this cover paired w/ the case make my laptop look really cute & coordinated! :)
Again, the fact that the F keys don't match up isn't a deal breaker for me, but the seller really should take out the part of the description that says it's made for the A1181 because it obviously isn't.
Surprised at the negative reviews

I've only had this keyboard skin for a week, and while I recognize there are some issues (keyboard labeling doesn't completely match my ancient early 2008 MacBook), the fit is perfect and for my average typing speed and style (less than 50 wpm), it's a great upgrade in both appearance and quality. The soft silicone cover makes less noise than the original keyboard and feels wonderful under my fingertips.
One suggestion for some of you with similar models of MacBooks - make sure you have the topcase (keyboard, touchpad and display bezel) replacement done that is offered (FOR FREE) by Apple due to a manufacturing defect. If I had the original keyboard (which had gotten less responsive with age), I think I would be less satisfied with this cover.
Cover Like a Glove and Sleek

Bottom line, for this price you cannot go wrong!
- Makes Mac look sleek! (Especially when paired with a black case)
- Sits on keys nice / doesn't slide around
- Cover sits correctly on physical keys
- "F" functions are mislabeled: the volume keys are from F3 to F5, F8 through F12 are blank
- Yes! If you are looking for a case that is perfect, without those few mislabels don't get this product. But everything else is flawless. Typing isn't hindered, and it offers a sleek look while providing functional protection
Some key description are not on the right spot. ...

Some key description are not on the right spot. I would have given this skin cover five stars, but some of the keys on the very top row don't match the description on my computer. The volume keys on the skin are on the left side, but on my computer they are on the right side. If I use this skin, I won't know which is which without having to flip the skin over to peek at the computer keys.
Perfect for the Old Macbooks

I just got this in the mail this week, and it's everything you could ever ask for in a keyboard cover. It fits my keys perfectly, is comfortable to the touch , and it's surprisingly thin, so it doesn't impede my 70 wpm typing speed in the slightest. In fact, it actually feels better than typing on the bare keyboard.
Don't be fooled by all the people saying the F keys are mislabeled: That's because they didn't bother to read the title of the product. The title clearly states that this is for the A1181 MacBooks (meaning the old black and white ones, NOT the aluminum ones). The keyboard labels match my 2007 black MacBook perfectly, right down to the translucent dot for the light on the Caps Lock button.
Definitely a must-have for anyone who owns an old MacBook. It's a small investment that will go a long way, and you'll be thanking yourself months from now when your keyboard isn't full of dirt, dust, grease, crumbs, and God knows what else.

This keyboard cover is super cute and just as described. The only reason I am giving it a 3, is because it does make it hard to type and will take some time getting used to. But also because some of the symbols for the F keys do not match. For example on my computer the "turn volume up" symbol is on F12 but it's on the keyboard cover on key F5 making it hard to use those F key shortcuts.
True 1st Generation Skin - FANTASTIC!
by The Verms (5 out of 5 stars)

Great fit, fantastic product! Is a TRUE 1st Generation keyboard cover. The original 1st Generation Macbook had page up / page down / home / end buttons verbage on the arrow keys, not just arrows (my husband has the original 1st Generation MacBook). I have the REVISED/UPDATED 1st Generation MacBook that came out later, prior to the computer "remodel", and it does have just the arrows on the arrow keys, no verbage. Also, like the previous post, the "F" keys/symbols are different on the on the 1st Generation revised, compared to the original 1st true Generation, which is what TopCase is printing on their Silicone skin. IE...if you F10-F12 keys have the mute/volume symbols, then you have the REVISED/UPDATED 1st Generation MacBook and this skin will not be exact symbol/key match to your keyboard. If your F3-F5 keys are the mute/volume symbols, then this skin will match your keyboard exactly!! Even though this does not match the exact symbols on my 1st Generation, like it does my husband's, I LOVE this product!
Some keys are mislabeled

I LOVE the color of this keyboard. The pink is rich and not too bright. As another reviewer mentioned - only the keys are pink. The spaces between the keys are clear (which looks great).
The top keys (above numbers) are labeled wrong. It's not a huge deal to me because I already have those keys memorized, but for the MacBook 2009 13" - the sound buttons are labeled over the dashboard/f4&f5 keys.
Otherwise the keyboard is great.
Perfect keyboard cover for my 1st Generation/A1181

I had been looking for the right keyboard cover for a while now, and was unable to find that were in color AND for the 1st gen MacBook. I am glad I found it here. If you have a 1st Generation/A1181 MacBook, then you are in the right place. Don't be fooled by other reviews saying it is mislabeled, they must have a later MacBook version and were not paying attention to the description. I'm very happy with it. Shipped really fast too!
Great product, just one little thing.

While this product lays perfectly on the keys and the construction is well done. The labeling on the keys is different then what is on the cover and you can see through the cover when it is on the keys. This is a bit annoying to me, but my wife does not mind. In addition, it does take a little getting used to, but after that, it looks great on the computer. I paired this with a red Hello Kitty skin and my wife has a one of a kind computer.
