So, originally I had purchased the Speck 13" Satin Case for my MacBook Air because I wanted to protect my laptop from random scrat So, originally I had purchased the Speck 13" Satin Case for my MacBook Air because I wanted to protect my laptop from random scratches, but unfortunately after going through three different exchanges, I ended up returning it because the pieces never snapped onto my laptop quite right. As I was leaving the store after my return, I noticed this case. I didn't even know that Tech21 made a snap case for my Macbook Air. Since my entire family uses Tech21 cases for our iPhones and my brother's motorcycle gear uses D30 impact material, this purchase was a no-brainer. Yeah, $100 is a little steep for a snap case, but if you really think about, it's really not too much to protect your investment of $1,000+. Anyway, the case fits perfectly right out of the box, my computer does not over heat with the case on, it now has impact protection (unlike the Speck case), the matte black looks super cool, and yes, you can still see the Apple Logo through it. I definitely recommend this case to everyone. Go buy it now! …

WOW....this is a great cover
I have purchased numerous cases for my Mac Air and many of them never seem to hold up without cracking in the corners. I thought I have purchased numerous cases for my Mac Air and many of them never seem to hold up without cracking in the corners. I thought I would try this Tech21 case to see how well it would perform. I just got it and put it on my laptop and couldn't be happier! You can tell this is a substantially better made case than the Speck cases. The price is higher but it's cheaper than having to replace the case every 6 months. The case is still lightweight but fits so snugly around my laptop without any movement at all! This is THE best case to purchase to protect your laptop. Apple got it right with this one........ …

Expensive but Impressive
I felt like I should write a review for anyone on the fence about this product. For the longest time I debated about getting this I felt like I should write a review for anyone on the fence about this product. For the longest time I debated about getting this device for my MacBook Pro 15" and finally pulled the trigger. I am so happy I picked this up, it makes my laptop feel so secure and makes it look twice as nice.
Unlike a Speck case, the impact technology on this thing is actually designed to protect the machine. Have not dropped it yet and surly hope I don't but knowing it's on gives me a peace of mind knowing that I have invested in my machines preservation.
I use my machine with products like Avid MC & the Adobe Suit and really keep in mind overheating and as far as I am concerned that should not be an issue. I have not done longer edits then 2 hours at a time but I have a feeling that with the lower cutouts for the bottom vents along with the mesh that separates the laptop with the exterior plastic there is room for breathing.
If you think you would like this case you will! Go out and invest in your expensive machine. …

Good not great

cases it is so similar in apparent quality it is tough to say for sure it will be any better; for the money it had better.I would feel more comfortable if it had a limited lifetime warranty rather than the one year.
The top and bottom fit securely and the tabs holding them on seem considerably stronger than my past cases. The feet are also good scratch resistant rubber. The rubber liner is a neat addition but I think the claims of extra protection are dubious but who want to test it out on a thousand dollar computer?
All in all the case is good but without a lifetime warranty or a lower price it is not great. …
