Doesn't even snap on
I just purchased and returned the Satin Case from the apple store today.

The reason being is that the bottom case does not even fully snap on! I could get 3 clips to work but the last clip just won't snap on!
I asked the Apple specialist to help me out and even she couldn't do it. We tried it on a macbook air on the floor and on that model, she only 2 of the front clips snapped on. We went through 3 other cases (1 the same color, 1 clear and 1 teal) from the same company before we finally gave up. I'm surprised apple is selling these in-store when they don't even work for the computer.
The one star is for the nice apple employee that helped me :) otherwise it would be none because the product just plainly doesn't work. …

We use this laptop a couple of times a month, so this is not something that is receiving heavy use. The Speck case has cracked and is falling apart. I cannot imagine how soon this case would have failed is this laptop was getting used daily! Very poor quality for a pricey case, I am very disappointed! …

Unfortunately, I did not save my receipt, so the manufacturer would not stand by their product and replace the broken/defective bottom half. …

Does not fit as well on the bottom as the one I have on my 2011 11" MBA
There is an annoying gap right under the notch below the trackpad on the bottom piece. Occasionally it snags on objects in my bag There is an annoying gap right under the notch below the trackpad on the bottom piece. Occasionally it snags on objects in my bag and pulls it loose on one side. The one on my 11" MBA has been flawless so this version is a disappointment. …

Good idea, poor implementation)
First I was very happy with look & feel of black one: both color and softouch feeling reminded me of my old black macbook 2007. Un First I was very happy with look & feel of black one: both color and softouch feeling reminded me of my old black macbook 2007. Unfortunately it brings all the negative sides of old plastic macbook: increased weight, loose feeling in the bottom half - not enough clips to hold it tight. Also not sure about cooling: on the one hand now you won't reach hot surface any more, on the other - it may reduce cooling efficiency …
