    Nice color but...

    • Written by from Aurora

    I recently bought the new macbook pro 13 inch retina and about 4 days later i bought this case. I have the orange color and I haven't experienced damage to the case but my 1300 dollar computer now has little scratch marks on the bottom of the case from crumbs getting lodged under the bottom case. I like the feel and look of the case but damage to my laptop means bye bye case. For 50 dollars i would expect it to hold a bit better and have more protection against crumbs and marks on the bottom of my computer.

    I don't suggest it at all

    • Written by from Beaverton

    I bought this when I first bought my laptop, despite the semi-steep price, directly out of the Apple store. I've had it for hardly a year now, and it's cracked, chipped, and falls off at the lightest pull. In the beginning, I used to have to cut my fingers in order to get the case off (which I had to do often, since it always lets dirt and other nasty substances into it, making my laptop gross and sometimes sticky). It's chipped all around the edges, leaving sharp corners that constantly hurt me. It lost 3/4 of the nubs that are supposed to keep the my computer on tables and stable within the first couple of months. However, despite my relatively rough use of my laptop (I have cats that like to push it off the table, or it sometimes slides off my lap because the case is so smooth), it has kept my laptop from breaking (though it does have several small chips and scratches), which is why I feel I must give it at least two stars.

    speck case MBPR 13"

    • Written by from Baltimore

    I was hesitant to purchase this case based on the previous reviews and things I have heard from a few friends, but I am pleasantly surprised that I love it! I've had it for about a month now on my brand new MBPR 13" and it still looks as new. I would just treat the case the same with I treat my Mac...handle with care. I don't see why it wouldn't last for others if they were taking care of it. It is pricey, but it does its job. Pair it with a nice mac case (I have a herschel co sleeve) and you should be good to go!

    Bad quality

    • Written by from Selmer

    I love the color of the case and the way it fits. However, within a few weeks of having the case the corners broke off without even dropping it. Very disappointed in the quality of the product for the price.

    Pretty but just doesn't last.

    • Written by from west hartford

    Got the purple one for my MBP Pro back in February. It held up until a few days ago when I pulled my mbp from my bag and noticed that as I was grabbing at the mbp, it was sliding out from the case. Noticed that the bottom half of the shell casing broke in the corners towards the back. I was very confused because my mbp stay in a laptop bag, never dropped it, banged it or anything to that nature. And I guess based on all the other reviews this is something common. I wouldn't mind as much if I didn't have to pay so much for it.

    Love it!

    I bought this for my dad for his laptop, and he really loves it! I can definitely say this product is worth the money, and VERY durable.

    Completely Worth It!

    • Written by from Moreno Valley

    This case is clearly worth the money. I purchased it around this time last year and it is still in good condition. I drop my laptop many times and that in and of itself is what pushed me to purchase a hard case. The case has broken the fall every time. I don't understand the previous reviews claiming it's flimsy and doesn't fit and falls off. It is a hard plastic that DOES NOT BEND. It may seem flimsy but once it's on it's hard and it does not just pop off easily. It fits perfect and if you look at the descriptions you'll find they have the same case for different models so that may be why it doesn't fit and fall off. READ the description carefully. This is a highly recommended product that I will continue to sing praises of and buy in multiple colors.

    Not Recommended

    • Written by from Parkland

    After buying my first macbook I figured if I'm going to be dragging this everywhere I should buy a case. I picked up this case but in black and thought it was really nice, even durable. After literally 4 days after putting the case on, the color started wearing off. The corners were turning... 4 DAYS LATER! It didn't even leave my room! Obviously I took it back, and now all the reviews for cases say this is one of the best cases. Very disappointed and for $49.99, should have better quality. Atleast wait until 30 days after, geesh.

    This is NOT worth the money that I spent on it! I love the color but the shell never stays on. It is always falling off and it is very flimsy. The thing is chipping away piece by piece and I just bought it 3 months ago! For this price I expected something a bit sturdier!

    I never write reviews, but...

    • Written by from Maryville

    I loved this case for purely cosmetic reasons. The turquoise looks great on the computer, and I didn't want my new Macbook to be dented and scratched like my old one. Today made me want to write a review, though. Believe it or not, I just dropped my computer out of a second story window. It fell onto concrete. The concrete had leaves, which probably helped break the fall. I panicked, but guess what. MY LAPTOP IS FINE! There are some expected scratches and dents, but the case didn't even break. I'm not saying you can throw your computer out a window, but this case is worth the money in protection.

    This Speck product had been recommended to me by family members that had purchased other Speck products, so I was fairly confident when I ordered this case. It was advertised as a light-weight 'hard' case. Light-weight - yes; 'hard' - NO WAY!! It is very flimsy and does not stay on my MacBook very well. It is advertised as easy to put on and off - it definitely is easy to take off but I'm not at all confident that it will stay on. Definitely NOT worth the price!
