[PR] Luxury Leather SurfacePad from Twelve South Protects Your MacBook Pro and Your Wrists

Charleston, SC, December 16, 2009 – Twelve South introduces SurfacePad, a super soft, ultra-thin layer of luxury leather that dresses up and protects the keyboard deck/wrist rest area of MacBook Pro from scratches, dirt and discoloration. SurfacePad is available now in Smooth and Pattern styles for the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro. The retail price is $39.99 for both sizes, and the product is available immediately.

Along with protecting the surface around the keyboard, the rich black leather SurfacePad completely transforms the look of a MacBook Pro, making it a standout in coffee shops, classrooms and boardrooms. SurfacePad is available in either a napa Smooth finish or an embossed baroque Pattern. It also beautifully coordinates with the black keys and black screen bezel on MacBook Pros.

The SurfacePad for the 13-inch MacBook Pro is a one-piece design that covers the keyboard deck, with an opening for the trackpad and keyboard. The SurfacePad for the 15-inch MacBook Pro is a two-piece style that also integrates the speaker grills into the design of SurfacePad. Each of the pieces can be used independently of one another, depending on user preference or personal style.

“SurfacePad adds a sophisticated layer of protection, style and comfort to MacBook in the form of a thin cushion of top-grain napa leather. It gives your MacBook a fresh new look and makes working for hours more comfortable,” said Andrew Green, Head of Creative for Twelve South. “With two distinct styles, the classic Smooth leather and the embossed baroque Pattern, it gives our customer the choice of which version best fits their personality.”

SurfacePad installs easily and remains in place using a special adhesive that leaves no trace or sticky residue. More importantly, the adhesive allows you to reposition your SurfacePad, or even remove it entirely for a period of time and then reapply it. At a mere 0.7mm thin, SurfacePad does not interfere with your MacBook closing and going to sleep.
