  • Looks good and fits well, but one significant design flaw!

    Although this case fits very well and looks great, unfortunately it covers the laptops dual mic's (positioned next to the headphon Although this case fits very well and looks great, unfortunately it covers the laptops dual mic's (positioned next to the headphone socket). As a result, using Skype, Facetime and dictation etc is somewhat problematic. Unfortunately I realised this after my 14 day return guarantee had expired so I'm a little stuck - hopefully this will be of use to you though.

    A little research suggests that the makers may be revising the case design but it would probably be worth checking this detail before you choose to buy. Seems strange that Apple are selling a product that inhibits a function of one of their own product. Oh well!
