MBP Screen and Keyboard Marks

My mid-2015 MBP has marks on the screen that cannot be cleaned off and I'm assuming these are directly from the keyboard. I thought that only the old MacBooks and MBP had issues with that. Does the keyboard actually come in contact with the screen on newer versions? Probably slipping a piece of paper in between over the years would have been a good idea, but, I had it in my thinking that Apple rectified that problem with contact.

Do you actually notice the marks when you are actually using your Mac?


My son's 2015 MacBook Pro has similar slight marks that can be seen when the Mac is off, but they pretty well disappear once it is booted and running.

Maybe try changing the Brightness level and see if things improve, if the marks are bothersome.

Then I would say the problem is solved and you don't really have one.

I think decreasing the space between the lid and the keys by the thickness of a sheet of paper will make your problem worse.

Paper can actually also be quite abrasive, but I have seen some keyboards come with a very thin sheet of foam or the fabric that is similar to that used for cleaning glass lenses.

Maybe either of those would work, If needed to prevent further damage, but why bother if it's not noticed when it's in use now???
