Doesn't even snap on

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. …

The MBA is generally carried in a backpack, and it has done a lot of travelling in that time with no issues. I couldn't be happier with it.
It looks good and offers great protection, I've just ordered one for my new MBA I'm getting this week. …

Does not fit as well on the bottom as the one I have on my 2011 11" MBA
There is an annoying gap right under the notch below the trackpad on the bottom piece. Occasionally it snags on objects in my bag There is an annoying gap right under the notch below the trackpad on the bottom piece. Occasionally it snags on objects in my bag and pulls it loose on one side. The one on my 11" MBA has been flawless so this version is a disappointment. …
