Annoyingly not quite right
Took the plunge on this one over the spec case that is about £20 less. Got it in black. The bottom half fits like a glove but the Took the plunge on this one over the spec case that is about £20 less. Got it in black. The bottom half fits like a glove but the top half is pretty poor. The clips down the side of the screen and along the bottom like to pop off if you touch them while altering the angle of the screen. Took the case back to the apple store where they agreed it didn't seem right so offered to change it, unfortunately they didn't have any more in black but they did have one in clear and recommended trying the clear on so if the fit is better I could order the black one online with the refund. Tried the clear one on and it was perfect so thought it must have been a one off faulty one I had. Ordered a new one online, fitted it and it's worse than the first one. Must only be with the black cases? Will be returning it, a shame the clear one is ugly. …

I have no doubt the Tech21 case offers a degree of protection you might not get from other products, but at £59.95 the quality of I have no doubt the Tech21 case offers a degree of protection you might not get from other products, but at £59.95 the quality of fit is appalling.
The top section sides can be popped off with a mere slight touch of a finger. The lower section fits more flushly, but I've just (whilst writing this review) pushed on the left side with my thumb and sure enough the side unclipped.
If the Mac was to be dropped I have an uneasy feeling that the case would simply come off.
My wife has a Macbook Air with a Speck case. That is a harder material (much) and looks very good too. I wish I'd have saved myself £20 and bought one of those instead. It fits perfectly and is a much better quality.
I'm disappointed Apple endorse this product through selling it in stores and online. It isn't worth the money and if I had known how poor a fit it would be I'd have been reluctant to pay £25 for it, never mind £59.95! Simply not good enough. …

Great Shell, Would buy another if this one breaks.
Love this case, well worth the money over the speck case... but can get stained easily (mine has dark patches on the base); brill Love this case, well worth the money over the speck case... but can get stained easily (mine has dark patches on the base); brill protection, couldn't ask for more, doesn't add too much bulk, adds a bit more weight but totally worth it for a protected mac in my opinion! love the soft week of the case and the textured pattern on the plastic. seems very sturdy, expecting it to last a very long time, probably exceeding the life of my mac! …

DO NOT BUY!
I bought this case at the Apple Store to protect my brand new MacBook Pro 15" Retina as I wanted to keep it safe and scratch free. I bought this case at the Apple Store to protect my brand new MacBook Pro 15" Retina as I wanted to keep it safe and scratch free.
So I thought this was ideal as it is quite discreet and comfortable as you can just use your Mac with the case on.
