Doesn't even snap on
I just purchased and returned the Satin Case from the apple store today.

The reason being is that the bottom case does not even fully snap on! I could get 3 clips to work but the last clip just won't snap on!
I asked the Apple specialist to help me out and even she couldn't do it. We tried it on a macbook air on the floor and on that model, she only 2 of the front clips snapped on. We went through 3 other cases (1 the same color, 1 clear and 1 teal) from the same company before we finally gave up. I'm surprised apple is selling these in-store when they don't even work for the computer.
The one star is for the nice apple employee that helped me :) otherwise it would be none because the product just plainly doesn't work. …

We use this laptop a couple of times a month, so this is not something that is receiving heavy use. The Speck case has cracked and is falling apart. I cannot imagine how soon this case would have failed is this laptop was getting used daily! Very poor quality for a pricey case, I am very disappointed! …

Save your receipt
One snap on the bottom broke off within 1-2 months of purchase, which then resulted in movement/other pieces breaking, to the poin One snap on the bottom broke off within 1-2 months of purchase, which then resulted in movement/other pieces breaking, to the point where the bottom would not stay attached. Unfortunately, I did not save my receipt, so the manufacturer would not stand by their product and replace the broken/defective bottom half. …

I want a refund. Do not purchase!!
I bought a Macbook Air 13 inch to get ready for college. While at the Apple store, I saw the Speck satin case and I thought it loo I bought a Macbook Air 13 inch to get ready for college. While at the Apple store, I saw the Speck satin case and I thought it look nice in black and would protect my Macbook from everyday scratches. I have had many Speck cases in the past and had a level of quality that I associated with Speck. After a 3-4 weeks of having this case the bottom part started becoming loose. When I took off the case I noticed light dots on the bottom inside of the case. I tried everything to take it off (soap, windex, scrubbing) but they would not go away. The left bottom part of the case won't snap on and the little prong broke. There is a little gap that will not snap or stay but right in front of the touch pad. This was not worth the $50 it costs. The quality of the product is not what I expected. I'm a college student and I'm out $50 on a garbage shell case. Apple should discontinue this case for the Macbook Air 13 inch. …

Not worth $10
I bought this at the start of September - by now, the bottom part is completely gone. It was falling off within the first month.

Not sure how they get away with charging $50 for a product as bad as this one. …

It also looks nice as it gives the MacBook a sleek look instead of looking tacky as some of the colour cases do. The edges of the case around the vents/fan do turn white in patches if the computer is really hot such as from gaming. No problems with the clips if you do not take the case off everyday. …
