Beautiful. Would definitely recommend but add two more straps please.

It has been very durable. I was afraid the leather finish would scratch badly but it does not. Looks as good as the day I bought it. I have had no issues with computer overheating. The main thing I wish they would add are two more elastic straps for the bottom corners of the case to keep the Air from sliding forward and out of the upper elastic straps. Perhaps there is an obvious reason not to that I haven't observed, but this has been a continual issue. After two years of continual use one elastic strap has broken and the zipper is starting to come loose from the cover (which may have received a bit of help from a certain nine year old boy). I will gladly buy another identical Bookbook case when this one bites the dust even with the minor issues. …

Hello I am worried about the macbook pro getting hot with it...

I have the Bookbook on my iPhones & iPad. That said, neither have given me any issues with heat. Per I have the Bookbook on my iPhones & iPad. That said, neither have given me any issues with heat. Perhaps it's the leather absorbing some of the heat? I've been using them since they came out (before they were even sold on the Apple website). I had some problems with devices back then but not since I've had the Bookbook. That said, Bookbook has made consistent improvements since its inception so I'll be purchasing yet another one next iPad. The craftsmanship is wonderful quality and a work of art. My oldest one is finally beginning to loose it's elasticity after many years. The outside is still awesome. I've taken it everywhere (only people who read books even notice & they just want to know what interesting old book I must be reading). It's given me a sense of safety for reading in public places. Worth all the pennies spent, in my opinion. …
