The top and bottom shell has blistered and left unsightly white marks in several areas. The temperatures were not tropical - I was away in Europe where temperatures were no more than the high 20's. It is an expensive case for something that literally melts under the pressure.

    Apparently it's a common issue with Speck SmartShell cases, but I don't expect something I've spent £40 on to fail quite so dramatically after less than a month.

However having used the product for only two days, the rear clips on the base (above ports) snapped meaning the case doesn't fit properly. As the product was delivered with the box damaged there are scratches on the case that will not come off. Very disapointed with it, being returned ASAP.

It also looks nice as it gives the MacBook a sleek look instead of looking tacky as some of the colour cases do. The edges of the case around the vents/fan do turn white in patches if the computer is really hot such as from gaming. No problems with the clips if you do not take the case off everyday.

The MBA is generally carried in a backpack, and it has done a lot of travelling in that time with no issues. I couldn't be happier with it.

    It looks good and offers great protection, I've just ordered one for my new MBA I'm getting this week.
