The turquoise looks great on the computer, and I didn't want my new Macbook to be dented and scratched like my old one. Today made me want to write a review, though. Believe it or not, I just dropped my computer out of a second story window. It fell onto concrete. The concrete had leaves, which probably helped break the fall. I panicked, but guess what. MY LAPTOP IS FINE! There are some expected scratches and dents, but the case didn't even break. I'm not saying you can throw your computer out a window, but this case is worth the money in protection. …

After buying my first macbook I figured if I'm going to be dragging this everywhere I should buy a case. I picked up this case but After buying my first macbook I figured if I'm going to be dragging this everywhere I should buy a case. I picked up this case but in black and thought it was really nice, even durable. After literally 4 days after putting the case on, the color started wearing off. The corners were turning... 4 DAYS LATER! It didn't even leave my room! Obviously I took it back, and now all the reviews for cases say this is one of the best cases. Very disappointed and for $49.99, should have better quality. Atleast wait until 30 days after, geesh. …

Hard, protective case
I'm not sure why so many of these reviews are negative, but I must say that I am extremely happy I bought this case. The turquoise I'm not sure why so many of these reviews are negative, but I must say that I am extremely happy I bought this case. The turquoise color is beautiful and it almost looks like the actual laptop is this pretty color. I purchased my laptop for college a few months ago and was so scared about scratching/dropping it that I bought this expensive case right out of the apple store. Since then, my MacBook has been lugged around in my backpack from class to class and it's still in perfect condition.
The only drawback to this case is that it scratches pretty easily. I have just been placing it in my backpack with notebooks and folders and there are scratches everywhere already. I know that this is mostly my fault because I should have bought a sleeve or something, but it's still sort of disappointing that it got ruined from simply sitting in my backpack. But overall it does its job well and is a solid case for a MacBook. …

I have had my eye on this case for a long time whilst planning and building my MacBook Pro Retina. Ordered the dark purple case al I have had my eye on this case for a long time whilst planning and building my MacBook Pro Retina. Ordered the dark purple case along with my Mac and it arrived with a scratch on the top lid. Rung Apple and they replaced the case. It snapped on easily and was more then happy with the fit and protection it would provide. However within the first few months i noticed the corners holding the bottom of the case to my Mac had snapped off, first one corner then within a few weeks the other went. I had not dropped or bashed the case and when not in use it was zipped up in a padded sleeve. Not only was it a complete waste of money (as it was not cheap) but a complete let down. Going to have to buy a more expensive case which i know is more reliable. Should have paid the extra money and bought it in the first place instead of wasting my money on this one. STAY WELL AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT. …

Yes, if you have a sticker on your MBP it will be easily visible. Honestly, the case is difficult to Yes, if you have a sticker on your MBP it will be easily visible. Honestly, the case is difficult to even know it is on if you don't know what they look like. The case is crystal clear so every detail on the macbook can easily be seen. That's why I chose this case. I love the way the MBP looks and I didn't want any of it's "glory", if you will, to be hidden behind silly colors. …
