Not worth it.
I bought this case after reading reviews of this product for the MacBook Pro 13 inch with retina display. I have the Macbook Pro 1 I bought this case after reading reviews of this product for the MacBook Pro 13 inch with retina display. I have the Macbook Pro 15 inch with retina display. It's a good product, but the company recommends that you remove the case and any dust that has collected in between the case and your laptop. When I went to remove the case, I found that it was very difficult to do and there was an excellent chance that it was going to scratch my brand new laptop-that cost me a $3800! Also, the screen for retina display laptops are super thin and I felt that removing the shell could damage the screen because it so hard to take off. Needless to say, I bought an Incase sleeve instead. $50 gone to waste, but at least I know my laptop won't be damaged by the case that is supposed to protect it. …

However, the bottom part of the case two of the joint parts have broke.. (in about 2weeks) so now it kinda sides in and out now.. still works though..
Another thing, it does make your rMBP to heat up faster (if you're doing any high performance usage this will most likely cause it to heat up)..
But all in all an good product if you just want some protection... …

Gives the desired protection, although the case is prone to scratches
I've had the clear version of this case for a couple of months now and overall I'm happy with it. So far it has done a good job of I've had the clear version of this case for a couple of months now and overall I'm happy with it. So far it has done a good job of protecting my Macbook Pro. I haven't had any problems with the retaining clips breaking off so far, as was highlighted in other reviews, but I only keep my laptop around the house for the most part, with the occasional bit of transport in a car, so maybe I'm not best user to base this durability on.
The main fault with this case, in my opinion, is that it is very easy to scratch. I bought the clear case to preserve the cosmetic appearance of my Mac, but when I was putting the case on for the first time, I had one side of case installed on my machine and placed that side face down on a table, and while in the process of installing the other side of the case, I was shocked to see that managed to get a big scratch across the case where I had placed it on the table. I checked the table and there was no major dirt that I would expect to cause this kind of scratch. If you are installing this case, I recommend that you place your the case on a towel or soft cloth while you install.
Regardless of that, I think if you put this type of case in backpacks etc, you can expect the case will get scratches, although this should not impact how the case protects your Mac! …

does this case fit the new macbook pro retina 13" late 2013 model
- Asked by Fraser P
I recently purchased a new macbook retina and speck case. The top part that connects to the display I recently purchased a new macbook retina and speck case. The top part that connects to the display fits like a glove. However the bottom part with the main body of the keyboard is a little loose. I think this is due to the fact that new new MBPr is 1mm thinner than the earlier model. I'm considering returning the speck case tomorrow in to wait for the new MBPr case. …

Does anyone got mold under the shell?
- Asked by Cecile L
My wife and I have had these shells on our MBP''s for a fair time. Hers is red, at least 2 years, an My wife and I have had these shells on our MBP''s for a fair time. Hers is red, at least 2 years, and mine, a blue one, about a year and a half. neither machine has any growth of any kind under the shell. I suspect someone spilled liquid on, or sat the MBP in question in or on a wet area. Possibly they used it in a high humidity area. the shell isn't sealed, and has vent holes in the underside, so I would very much be surprised that there would mold, mildew or any other growths inside. Provided it wasn't used in the Amazon rain forest. …
