    Great but too flimsy

    • Written by from Norwich

    I love this case. I got one from the off with my MBPr 15" but I've had two now (second replaced by apple store under warranty) and both of them have broken. I think in an effort to keep it light Speck have sacrificed strength and the corner clips are very fragile...

    Saying that I love it so much that I'm considering buying another...

    Good BUT what happens underneath

    With the case on the Mac has to be CLEANED weekly. Took mine off and grit had got stuck in it and has scratched the base of my laptop, rather p'ed off about this.

    Good case for general use

    Does it's job

    I purchased this sleek case to protect my new MacBook Pro Retina from scratches as it cost me a fortune. The case is made of a nice smooth material on the outside but has a glossy inside which was an issue, when I received the case it was covered in dust/lint which was extremely difficult to remove, mainly the screen section. After about 30 minutes getting the case dust/lint free it went on easily, just snapped right on. It looks great on and has excellent cut outs for all ports, it is very thin and doesn't add much bulk to the machines sexy slim design. Overall the case does exactly what it's designed for, I just wish speck cleaned them properly before shipping, the last thing you want to do after purchasing a new case for £45 is cleaning it for ages before installing.

    Alright, but not great

    I bought my case from September, when the apple store didn't have them yet. Its served me well up til now, where as you'd have seen in the posts below, the bottom tabs near the hinge broke. I don't think it was worth it, but maybe that was because Speck made ME pay for shipping as well.

    I'll check if the warranty covers this as it is less than a year old though.

    Hard cases are very important when it comes to protecting your mac... especially when you drop them from a height. So I'd say get a soft case for now, maybe add some padding with it, and wait for them to redesign this.

    Great looks but hard to put on

    • Written by from Langley Park

    The case looks beautiful and is light as promised.

    It says in the product description it is easy to snap on and off. This is absolutely not true. It is actually very difficult to put it on (granted the bottom is easy) but the top is hard to apply. On corner will simply not snap on as it should and I don't want to break my MBPR so I decided to get a replacement.

    Now for the taking off part...yes, the bottom is easy to remove, the top, however, is incredibly difficult to take off and it takes lots of patience to take it off. I have consulted several youtube videos and it's simply not as easy as it might look. Good case (if it actually fits!) and you don't need to take it off and put it back on again often!
