Ratings & Reviews
The case looks and feels nice, but the edge rubs your hand.
It looks great. However, after a short period of time, the edge that clips on to the bottom of the computer rubs your palm raw. It looks great. However, after a short period of time, the edge that clips on to the bottom of the computer rubs your palm raw. It hurts. If they redesigned where the upper clip and the lower clip hit the computer; i.e. just move the location of the bottom clip closer to the outside edge of the computer, it would not rub your hand while using the track pad.
Very, very disappointed. …

The case has not interfered with plugging in any of the devices I have used so far. Although thin and lightweight, the case feels sturdy and has afforded me the peace of mind to take my new MacBook Pro out into the world. Additionally, the case is very well-designed visually. When closed, it has the appearance of being a black MacBook with aluminum accents. …

This is a decent case for the MBP Retina 15 inch. There are Pros and Cons during my use of this case. Pro: it is sturdy and fits r This is a decent case for the MBP Retina 15 inch. There are Pros and Cons during my use of this case. Pro: it is sturdy and fits really well. Cons: it makes the MBP really heavy, with the case when you close the MBP, it feels like there is no hinge because the case is so heavy that it can just close itself with a 30 degree angle. More CON: even though the case looks matte, it attracts grease from your fingers and you constantly have to wipe your MBP. Another CON, there is a rubber built in the case, although this should help during a drop, the rubber sticks to your MBP too and you have to rub to get it off.
Do I recommend this case? I would if the price was right, this is not worth $110. It maybe worth $39. Since this case adds additional weight, I feel like it is more likely that you will drop your phone because it is slippery as well. The case is also thick, which may not fit certain bags that are measured tight for a MBP 15 inch.
I recommend that you look around for other alternatives before buying this case. I bought it but returned it the next day. Very unhappy with the quality, price, and weight of this case. …

Tech21 a Superior Case

The price was 4x what I had paid in earlier case purchases, but it was clear this case was superior in many respects to the standard cases. From the anti-shock material between the case and the MP, the rubberized finish of the case, and the ever important clips to fasten the case to the MP, this was a superior case. Well worth the $$ for protecting a very valuable investment. …
