    I've used this case since the first day that I bought my macbook which was almost a year from now. I've had no problems with it, a I've used this case since the first day that I bought my macbook which was almost a year from now. I've had no problems with it, and I thought that everything was perfect...until about 5 days ago I decided to take off the cover to see if there was any dust. I was expecting to find dust, NOT mold! These Speck cases are not compatible with the aluminum on Mac's. There are permanent markings and scribbled looking engravings from....I don't even know what, but it was definitely not from me. I looks like some type of acid reaction? There were also white spots all over (top and bottom), from the mold. I did some research and found that another person had the same problem as I have using the Speck Case. I thought that paying the $50 and putting this case on my computer would keep it from getting permanent markings and damage, but oh boy was I wrong! Now I have markings all over, and I'm super upset. Apple should not sell a product that is not compatible with their own. I would recommend getting just a traditional bag or pouch with a zip so your Mac can breathe, instead of buying this case. It's way cheaper and safer for your laptop. Who knows, maybe I am the only one experiencing this...but I know for sure that I'm not using my Speck case again!

    When I purchased my MacBook Pro, I also bought this case to go along with it. I thought it was going to last me a long time, but i When I purchased my MacBook Pro, I also bought this case to go along with it. I thought it was going to last me a long time, but it happened to not last for a year. It started to crack on the side. I don't know if it's due to how thin the side is, but it eventually broke off. Today, I went back to the reviews and it showed comments about mold. After reading them, I instantly took off my case to see if it was true. I observed the bottom and there happened to be mold. I wouldn't recommend anyone buying this case for their MacBook.

    You wouldn't expect your derriere to stay clean just because you cover it with underwear, would you?

    I've had this case for 3 y You wouldn't expect your derriere to stay clean just because you cover it with underwear, would you?

    I've had this case for 3 years now and haven't had any issues. Plus, it makes my MacBook Pro look great up on stage when I'm performing.

    I can't help but notice that most reviewers with mold issues live in areas with relatively high humidity to begin with. And, I highly suspect that they more than likely have mold issues just in general because of that.

    Mold is a living organism that needs moisture, nutrients, and a comfy cozy place to live. The case certainly provides a comfy cozy space, but doesn't create mold by itself. Moisture in the air, especially warm humid air, and dirt of some sort provides mold spores something to feed on. That's what's causing the mold.

    So, if you are considering getting this case, keep in mind that there is some level of upkeep involved and you're gonna have to pull it off every now and then to clean things up just like you do when you pull yourself off the pot! :)
