Clean Laser Macbook Pro

So, what’s up guys? Jonathan here. And this might be theperfect Macbook setup. Specifically, I’m lookingat the H277HU from Acer which is a 27 inch IPS displaywith a trick up its sleeve. First off, it is really, really pretty. The base, which is made outof metal, and not plastic, has this gold finish,

which looks killerpaired with a white back. And there’s something strangely satisfying with metal versus plastic. It feels premium and is cool to the touch. You combine that with the bezels, or rather, lack thereof, and that makes thisone of the best looking monitors I’ve ever seen,

and a great starting point for a minimal, but great looking, setup. On the back, you will seea couple of USB3 ports, display port, and HDMI, but where the magic happens, is this guy right here: a USBC port. Normally the idea of a 12 inch Macbook hooked up to a monitor wouldsound like a nightmare.

There would be cablesand dongles everywhere, but this monitor fixes that. It’s essentially a gianthub that allows you to dock the Macbook, transfer data, but what seals the deal, is that it charges the Macbook, and all through a single USBC cable. Keep in mind this is done through

the monitor’s power supply. So that’s going to meana couple of things. One: you’re not going toneed the Macbook charger, and two: you now have twoUSB3 ports at your disposal. Personally, I love theimplementation of a dock set up, but it’s even betterwhen you’re connecting and disconnecting with a single cable. Now, one slightlyannoying thing is because

there are different kinds of USBC cables, not every one will work with this monitor. The ones that come withthe Macbook and most phones are USB2 and those will not work. So what you’re going to need is a fully compatible USB 3.1 USBC cable, which fortunately is included. But the problem is, to the naked eye,

CrystalGuard Keyboard Protector Review Apple Macbook Pro

Hey guys, it’s Multitechno101 here and todayI’m going to be talking about the new keyboard cover I got. This is around USD$4 I guess’cos I got it for HKD$30, so if you divide by 8 then. yeah. But anyways, this is theCrystalGuard. It’s really odd because I don’t know where it’s from or anything, but it’sjust called the CrystalGuard. So there are the descriptions here, and one thing I findthis packaging similar to is the ClearGuard. The Moshi ClearGuard’s packaging. You cansee the sizes are pretty similar and the font is pretty similar, the layout’s pretty similartoo. And at the back they both have pull tabs, except for the fact that this isn’t glued at thetop so you can just pull this out, and the

CrystalGuard just comes on this sheet of cardboard.But anyways, this keyboard cover (the CrystalGuard) has similar patterns to the iSkins they havethe blue, green, purple polka dotted designs, they have a pink one, just a blue one, greenone, orange one. but they have several colors you can choose from. This is pretty differentfrom what I’ve been used to using, the ClearGuard, because firstly the ClearGuard is a lot lighter.It doesn’t feel as rubbery this is more plasticky ‘cos the ClearGuard is TPU, whereas the CrystalGuardis actually silicone. So it is incredibly stretchy, um I know it’s not good to do thisbut it’s incredibly stretchy, and on the back it’s really sticky so it sticks to your keyboardkeys. A bad thing I found out about this is

that there’s sometimes watermarks. I don’tknow if you can see that but there are some watermarks along here. But since this is pink,it doesn’t show as easily, so that’s good. So how is this better than the ClearGuard?Well, I guess it’s pretty cool ‘cos it’s pink, it adds more color and style to your keyboard,and since it is rubbery and a lot smoother than the ClearGuard sometimes people mightprefer that. In some ways, it’s easier to type on this because since silicone is a softermaterial than TPU (well obviously) it would be easier to type using this than the ClearGuard.Although, sometimes you might accidentally click on some keys that you don’t want to,because this is so thin. I think they are

around the same thickness. the ClearGuardand the CrystalGuard. But this is just overall a lot heavier. But I like both of them soit depends on what you’re doing and what you need this for. You know, they both serve thesame purpose. So let’s take a look at the sides, over here. They don’t align reallywell with the little dent. indentation, I guess, along the keyboard, but it’s not significant.Over here it’s not aligned that well. You can cut it if you want to but it’s just amatter of a few millimetres so personally I don’t think it matters. Another thing thatbugs me about this is that sometimes there might be air bubbles in the keyboard. And ifyou do that, it might unalign to your keyboard.

But it’s not showing now. So that’s aboutit guys, so once again, the product I’m reviewing today is the CrystalGuard. Oh, and beforeI forget, the keyboard lighting does not show. well it does show. it does shine throughthis, but as you can see it’s unaligned to the text that’s embossed on the keyboard cover,so if I’m using this keyboard cover I don’t think I’m gunna be using the backlight forthe keyboard. But the light still shines through these cracks. So this is Multitechno101 here,signing out. Bye guys!.
