Too big for laptop

The case has two straps to hold the laptop within the case b I have a 15" Macbook Pro with Retina and this case is too big for it. The case has two straps to hold the laptop within the case but the laptop continually just slips from underneath them because there is too much room for the laptop to move within the case. If not for this, the case would be really good, but because of this it's pointless. …

Hello I am worried about the macbook pro getting hot with it...
- Asked by Paulina M from Mexico City
I have the Bookbook on my iPhones & iPad. That said, neither have given me any issues with heat. Per I have the Bookbook on my iPhones & iPad. That said, neither have given me any issues with heat. Perhaps it's the leather absorbing some of the heat? I've been using them since they came out (before they were even sold on the Apple website). I had some problems with devices back then but not since I've had the Bookbook. That said, Bookbook has made consistent improvements since its inception so I'll be purchasing yet another one next iPad. The craftsmanship is wonderful quality and a work of art. My oldest one is finally beginning to loose it's elasticity after many years. The outside is still awesome. I've taken it everywhere (only people who read books even notice & they just want to know what interesting old book I must be reading). It's given me a sense of safety for reading in public places. Worth all the pennies spent, in my opinion. …
