Looks good and fits well, but one significant design flaw!
Although this case fits very well and looks great, unfortunately it covers the laptops dual mic's (positioned next to the headphon Although this case fits very well and looks great, unfortunately it covers the laptops dual mic's (positioned next to the headphone socket). As a result, using Skype, Facetime and dictation etc is somewhat problematic. Unfortunately I realised this after my 14 day return guarantee had expired so I'm a little stuck - hopefully this will be of use to you though.
A little research suggests that the makers may be revising the case design but it would probably be worth checking this detail before you choose to buy. Seems strange that Apple are selling a product that inhibits a function of one of their own product. Oh well! …

One of Specks Best MacBook Cases
I've been a speck consumer for a long time, since I purchased the first generation iPod Shuffle to be exact. The Clear color case I've been a speck consumer for a long time, since I purchased the first generation iPod Shuffle to be exact. The Clear color case for the Air is well suggested over any other as I am owner of this model and the Matte Black. The Clear case helps kept the computer clean and safe from scratches and dings and on top of it the case holds strong against blemishes in comparison to the color versions of this model. The only thing i dislike but isn't a huge flaw and is also expected is that the rubber feet on the bottom yellow a bit but other than that its a great case. lastly the price is a bit steep but if you want a good case with a good warranty than its money well spent. …

I bought it from Apple because I expected it to be quality - STOP SELLING THESE APPLE - THEY'RE NOT DOING YOUR REPUTATION ANY FAVOURS! The guy in the Apple store was appalled - he can see it, why can't the company?! …

Worst case I have ever had
When I first got this case, I thought it was pretty decent but now, I can say this is easily one of the worst cases I have ever ow When I first got this case, I thought it was pretty decent but now, I can say this is easily one of the worst cases I have ever owned. It breaks so easily and since I am a college student, it only sits on my desk. I don't take it many places at all. Yet somehow the pieces of plastic for the bottom continue to break. There are cracks all along the bottom and this just sits on my desk. The only thing this case is good for is keeping it clean. But for any form of protection, please look somewhere else!! …

Not what I expected
This product did not fit on my laptop very well, popping off very easily and was very difficult to put on. The color of the green This product did not fit on my laptop very well, popping off very easily and was very difficult to put on. The color of the green one which I had ordered looked much more vibrant in the picture. I returned this product because although when it actually stayed on it seemed like it would protect well, it was not worth $60. I would not recommend this product …
