    Horrible waste of $52. Am very particular about my computer, very protective of it in every way. This was the only protective case Horrible waste of $52. Am very particular about my computer, very protective of it in every way. This was the only protective case the Apple store had it when I bought my newest MacBook Air. Cracked in many places within three months--despite the care I gave it. Saw a lady in a hotel's breakfast area with the same computer, same case. Hers cracked also despite her protection of the computer.
    Bottom line: this is but a speck of protection for any MacBook Air!

The case is difficult to get on at first use, and is also a pain when using it. If my computer is open at more than 90 degrees _| (like that) the lid falls back _/ (like that). I got clear, and it is nice, and it does add a bit of extra weight to the product, but the design is okay, it just bothers me that it always falls all the way back whenever I'm using it

I returned it and ordered this one. The initial installation can be tricky, but once installed it is a great product and well worth the price considering the alternative cost the same.
    I give it 4 stars for the tough installation, but highly recommend it.

    I purchased this case primarily because I had a similar Speck hardshell case for my MacBook Pro. I've had the Pro version for 3+ y I purchased this case primarily because I had a similar Speck hardshell case for my MacBook Pro. I've had the Pro version for 3+ years without any issues. But the MackBook Air version I purchased cracked along the edge within the first few months. Within less than a year, several of the attachment points have broken off the case, so it no longer stays on my computer and is basically useless. I am very careful with my computer, and from reading the other reviews case cracking seems to be a common issue. Don't waste your money on this product, it does not last!

  • Disappointed considering my last Speck case was amazing

    I had a Speck cover for my old Macbook, which my husband commandeered and it is still going strong (cover and computer). I figured I had a Speck cover for my old Macbook, which my husband commandeered and it is still going strong (cover and computer). I figured since I was getting a new precious piece of machinery, I should invest in another Speck cover (especially since the last one did it's job so well). When I got this $53 cover, I was surprised at how flimsy it was and that it didn't have the grippy texture my last cover had. I figured since my last cover was legit, this one would somehow do the same job. WRONG...this thing has cracks all over it and I have not dropped it once! I submitted my claim to Speck today, since it has a 1-year warranty. I guess we'll see how that goes, but as of now I feel like this case is a total rip-off!

    I bought it about a week ago and it has started cracking. It also doesn't fit well. I am very careful with my mac, I only move it I bought it about a week ago and it has started cracking. It also doesn't fit well. I am very careful with my mac, I only move it from my room to downstairs. I would not waste $50 on a case that starts cracking after a week. I am buying a new case.
