Other World Computing (OWC) today announced it has expanded its popular line of laptop screen protectors (LSPs) to cover the new 15-inch and 17-inch Aluminum Apple PowerBook G4 models.

Made from all-natural, top-grain cowhide leather, LSPs fit across a laptop’s track pad and/or keyboard to prevent the keyboard and button on the base of the laptop from coming in contact with, and leaving skin oils or permanent marks and indentations on, the laptop’s built in display.

“When you invest your hard-earned money in something as substantial as a PowerBook G4, the last thing you want is for the screen to become marked up or permanently damaged,” said Larry O’Connor, president of OWC. “The OWC Laptop Screen Protector is the original. OWC has been protecting Apple PowerBook and iBook screens since the 1998 PowerBook G3 Wallstreet first showed the need for such a product. Our LSPs are the perfect solution, being both elegant and effective, as well as durable and easy to care for all at the same time.”

The OWC 15-inch Aluminum PowerBook LSP measures 8.5- x 12.75-inches, while the 17-inch Aluminum PowerBook version measures 9.25- x 15-inches. Other LSPs from OWC include those for the Macintosh iBook Dual USB, PowerBook G3 and the PowerBook G4 Titanium, as well as a 5- x 11.5-inch LSP that fits over most standard laptop keyboards. Custom-designed for specific models to ensure a proper fit that does not cause interference or stress when the notebook closes, OWC LSPs are the sensible solution for notebook screen protection.

“With laptops becoming thinner, the keyboard/trackpad contact issue has become more prevalent, increasing the need for this type of product,” O’Connor said. “A small investment in an OWC LSP protects your Apple laptop screen – and for a fraction of the cost and pain of replacing it!”

OWC Laptop Screen Protectors do not require any after-purchase treatment and are designed to not shed or leave lint between the keys. Pricing for LSPs begins at $13.95 and each also includes one Apple Polish screen cleaner and wipe to ensure a clean start. OWC Laptop Screen Protectors can be purchased online at Custom logo-stamped versions are also available. Contact for more information.
