    Horrible waste of $52. Am very particular about my computer, very protective of it in every way. This was the only protective case Horrible waste of $52. Am very particular about my computer, very protective of it in every way. This was the only protective case the Apple store had it when I bought my newest MacBook Air. Cracked in many places within three months--despite the care I gave it. Saw a lady in a hotel's breakfast area with the same computer, same case. Hers cracked also despite her protection of the computer.
    Bottom line: this is but a speck of protection for any MacBook Air!

The case is difficult to get on at first use, and is also a pain when using it. If my computer is open at more than 90 degrees _| (like that) the lid falls back _/ (like that). I got clear, and it is nice, and it does add a bit of extra weight to the product, but the design is okay, it just bothers me that it always falls all the way back whenever I'm using it

I returned it and ordered this one. The initial installation can be tricky, but once installed it is a great product and well worth the price considering the alternative cost the same.
    I give it 4 stars for the tough installation, but highly recommend it.

Since then, the case sometimes will slip off, and even more of the clasps have broken. The top half is okay, but the bottom half of the case is dreadful.

    Before I bought this case, I spent half the money to get a hard shell case on Amazon (and it came with a keyboard and screen protector!), and it lasted for 3 years. This has lasted 2 months, so I'm never buying this brand again. Buyer beware!

    Pros: - Customize / Personalize your Macbook to give it that "you" flair.
    - Protect your Macbook from every day scuf Pros: - Customize / Personalize your Macbook to give it that "you" flair.
    - Protect your Macbook from every day scuffs and scratches, awful gouging and dents
    - Offers some drop protection ( off of lap, short distance.. with in reason)

    Cons:
    - Poor Packaging can often cause the case to arrive already scratched ( edit* They have recently started a new package design to address this)
    - The corner clips of the case have an unfortunate frequency of cracking off
    - Protection from dropping is an absolute minimum ( But really .... don't drop your computer)

    I work In an APR and we sell speck, I've seen customers return unhappy with the integrity of the case ( Cracking, splitting, clips breaking )
    and I've seen customers come in saying that their friends won't shut up about the case and that they have to get one too.

    I personally have never had one of my speck cases break, crack or split, I would recommend this product.
    My Red Pro and Blue Air have never looked better, Talk about increasing your resale value, no scratches at all? Cha Ching.

For $50, I hoped for something more with a longer warranty than 1 year. I can already see scratches on the front that are quite visible.. Other than that, I like the color and feel better knowing that my laptop is somewhat protected. I also enjoy that you can see the apple logo through the case and it lights up.
