    I bought this case after reading reviews of this product for the MacBook Pro 13 inch with retina display. I have the Macbook Pro 1 I bought this case after reading reviews of this product for the MacBook Pro 13 inch with retina display. I have the Macbook Pro 15 inch with retina display. It's a good product, but the company recommends that you remove the case and any dust that has collected in between the case and your laptop. When I went to remove the case, I found that it was very difficult to do and there was an excellent chance that it was going to scratch my brand new laptop-that cost me a $3800! Also, the screen for retina display laptops are super thin and I felt that removing the shell could damage the screen because it so hard to take off. Needless to say, I bought an Incase sleeve instead. $50 gone to waste, but at least I know my laptop won't be damaged by the case that is supposed to protect it.

    SCRATCHES EASILY AND AFTER A LITTLE WHILE THE FRONT BOTTOM PART DOESNT SEEM TO FIT AS TIGHT AS WHEN PURCHASED. GOT THE MOSHI CASE SCRATCHES EASILY AND AFTER A LITTLE WHILE THE FRONT BOTTOM PART DOESNT SEEM TO FIT AS TIGHT AS WHEN PURCHASED. GOT THE MOSHI CASE TOO AND FOR 10 DOLLARS MORE THINK IT FAR SUPERIOR IN FEEL, STYLE AND FITS THE MACBOOK FAR BETTER.

    From my experience the Speck SmartShell is the best overall case for your Macbook Pro. I originally purchased this case for my Mac From my experience the Speck SmartShell is the best overall case for your Macbook Pro. I originally purchased this case for my Macbook Pro 17" and again for my 15" Retina and thought it's a good case but it does show scratches since the plastic is glossy clear and the feet underneath the case will get slightly yellow with time (at least the one for my MBP 17" did after a few years). I looked at the reviews for the Moshi 15" iGlaze Shell case and thought I should give it a try instead since so many people highly recommend the iGlaze over the SmartShell. It turns out they're very wrong and here's why. Most people said the iGlaze does not show scratches. They're wrong, if you look closely, only a few times after handling the case you can see the hairline scratches... you just see them a bit less because the case is "glazed" but trust me they're there. The biggest problem with the iGlaze is the finish of the plastic. It's extremely slippery in your hand, compared to the Speck SmartShell which has the gloss finish and is extremely sticky to the touch. If you hold both of them in each hand you will see how the Speck SmartShell actually grips better. Even if you only close your MBP and insert it in a bag or like me carry your MBP up a flight of stairs you will take the Speck SmartShell any day over the Moshi iGlaze Shell because it has a better feel in the hand that's safer to carry in one hand. Simply put the Moshi 15" iGlaze Shell case is a straight up fail compared to the Speck SmartShell case.

    I loved the look and it was less money than the other one available so I bought it. Almost immediately, the edges chipped and cra I loved the look and it was less money than the other one available so I bought it. Almost immediately, the edges chipped and cracked. I finally succumbed and bought a new one only a few months ago. The edges on the second one also chipped almost immediately. And it is no longer a tight fit. Matter of fact, if I am not careful, the computer will drop out of the case completely. Certainly, I will not buy a third Speck case. In fact, I think Speck/Apple owes me my money back for at least one of these.

    Product broke and cracked 3 months after initial purchase. The case itself is okay and will do you good, the product will last if Product broke and cracked 3 months after initial purchase. The case itself is okay and will do you good, the product will last if you never remove it. However upon cleaning or removal thats when you break it. It cracks, it chips off, its very thin, you can break it in a million different ways. That being said they have excellent customer service.

    Upon routine cleaning I broke one of the clips on the back, I took some photos, provided a receipt, and followed instructions on their website about how to send in an RMA request. I sent in an RMA request via their website and had a new one in my mailbox within 48 hours via international shipping. I didn't even have to ship the old one back they simply looked at the photos and sent a new one.

    The quality of product in the sense that it breaks easy is disappointing however the customer service was excellent for me.

I have a to I bought the Speck case for my MBP in 2009 and while the tabs have popped off the bottom shell, it stays on my laptop. I have a toddler who likes to "help" by handing me the computer, so it can be handled a bit roughly, but the laptop is still functional, which I think has a lot to do with the case.
