Got this just to keep my rMBP from cracking when Im on the move.. a precautionary measure I should say.. Good thing is it can with Got this just to keep my rMBP from cracking when Im on the move.. a precautionary measure I should say.. Good thing is it can withstand some hits..
However, the bottom part of the case two of the joint parts have broke.. (in about 2weeks) so now it kinda sides in and out now.. still works though..
Another thing, it does make your rMBP to heat up faster (if you're doing any high performance usage this will most likely cause it to heat up)..
But all in all an good product if you just want some protection... …

Retaining clip broken
I bought the Speck 15" SmartShell Case approximately 5 months ago, and have managed to break one of the retaining clips Negative
I bought the Speck 15" SmartShell Case approximately 5 months ago, and have managed to break one of the retaining clips on the lower shell.
I think this is a design flaw as I am not the only person to have suffered a broken retaining clip - the width of the plastic is too narrow, or the material isn't flexible enough.
The SmartShell adds a considerable amount of weight to your Macbook, which makes one handed handling of the Macbook at arms length more difficult.
Price - seems expensive for 2 sheets of plastic.
Protects the Macbook very well (even with a broken clip) - I have kids and if I didn't have the SmartShell fitted, the Macbook would be covered in a multitude of scrapes and scratches from the kids and from being carted around in my briefcase with other equipment.
Overall it's a good idea, but the clips need better designing.
A thin film of stick on plastic would be a better idea. …

Really unhappy with this case. Almost each corner has now cracked and broken off. The top part of my Mac Book is perfect however, Really unhappy with this case. Almost each corner has now cracked and broken off. The top part of my Mac Book is perfect however, the underneath is a different story. From the moment I had my Mac it has always had this case on. I tend to take the case off and wipe down my Mac. It was then I discovered a numerous amount of tiny scratches. I couldn't understand why my Mac would have so many scratches. It seems that this 'Case' lets in dust or tiny bits of dirt which rubs against the case and causes the scratches.
If you want to keep your Mac pristine... DO NOT BUY THE SmartShell Case for MacBook Pro with Retina Display!
I would suggest a more softer case. For the amount you pay for it, it should be protecting your Mac, not scratching and damaging. …

Battered case + scratched laptop
Both rear clips on bottom case have broken off
Top lid has two cracks
What I've done?
Taken it off to clean about One year:
Both rear clips on bottom case have broken off
Top lid has two cracks
What I've done?
Taken it off to clean about once a month as dirt grim and just gets underneath which then scratches and permanently marks your outer aluminium shell laptop!
Had a MBA 13 with no case that was pristine when I sold it on.. This is no longer the case!
Don't buy unless its necessity, find a softer case that won't ruin something that cost over £2300 as I have found out …

Good case shame about the quality of the clips that hold it to your macbook
Its a great case it will protect your MacBook from scratches as its designed to do.
However after a couple of months the clips Its a great case it will protect your MacBook from scratches as its designed to do.
However after a couple of months the clips that hold it onto your MacBook base especially at the mouse end of your MacBook will fail and fall off, rendering this product useless, the quality is not the same as the old version it replaced which I might add lasted 3 years on my previous Macbook, not the two months it has on my new MacBook Pro. …

Fits snugly and makes the laptop far more robust. My first PowerBooks were always bending and my MBPs took lots of looking after but were just too bulky when this was added.
As the retina is so slim, it can take the extra bulk that these covers inevitably add but it makes the machine so much easier to grip.
It also gives much more confidence when placing it down. …
