Upgrade your MacBook Air to First Class with the new SurfacePad for Air wrist pad.

Charleston, SC, June 5, 2012 – Twelve South announces SurfacePad for MacBook Air, the latest in a line of ultra-thin, genuine leather wrist rest protectors for MacBook. SurfacePad for MacBook Air is designed to add a refined look and scratch protection to the Air, while also adding a warm, soft layer of comfort to the metal wrist rest area. Available in black or red, SurfacePad for MacBook Air is available now for just $29.99 at twelvesouth.com. More info and images can be found here.

SurfacePad for MacBook Air is an ultra-thin layer of premium leather tailored to fit the wrist rest area of MacBook Air. Made from high quality napa leather, SurfacePad is a unique way to personalize and add a bit of luxury to MacBook Air. Available color options include Jet Black that coordinates perfectly with the black keys on MacBook Air, or Pop Red for those who want to add a hit of color to their Air.


In addition to good looks, SurfacePad for Air provides a soft, cushiony surface for your wrists. Rich, warm leather is a first-class upgrade compared to setting your wrists on cold, hard aluminum. SurfacePad is like adding an executive leather desk pad to your MacBook Air. Those who spend long hours on their Air at work, in coffee shops or at 35,000 feet will find the supple leather SurfacePad to be a comfortable addition to their MacBook.

SurfacePad for MacBook Air protects the wrist rest area of your Air from stains or scratches from watches and jewelry. Your watch or bracelet won’t clank annoyingly against the metal MacBook surface as you type and work. Meanwhile, SurfacePad will help you maintain your MacBook’s like-new finish underneath as you enjoy the added comfort on top.

Andrew Green, Creative Director at Twelve South said, “SurfacePad is one of my favorite MacBook accessories because it’s such a simple add-on, but adds so much comfort and style. I’ve been testing this new version for months and now I can’t imagine my Air without it. Plus, I must admit it’s nice that my MacBook looks just a little bit different than everyone else’s at the local coffee shop.”

The ultra-thin, feather light SurfacePad for MacBook Air makes your Air stand out and the buttery soft napa leather cushions your wrists, making your Mac look and feel great. Try it for yourself. Get a Jet Black or Pop Red SurfacePad for Air for your MacBook Air now at twelvesouth.com.
