Ratings & Reviews
Not worth it.
I bought this case after reading reviews of this product for the MacBook Pro 13 inch with retina display. I have the Macbook Pro 1 I bought this case after reading reviews of this product for the MacBook Pro 13 inch with retina display. I have the Macbook Pro 15 inch with retina display. It's a good product, but the company recommends that you remove the case and any dust that has collected in between the case and your laptop. When I went to remove the case, I found that it was very difficult to do and there was an excellent chance that it was going to scratch my brand new laptop-that cost me a $3800! Also, the screen for retina display laptops are super thin and I felt that removing the shell could damage the screen because it so hard to take off. Needless to say, I bought an Incase sleeve instead. $50 gone to waste, but at least I know my laptop won't be damaged by the case that is supposed to protect it. …

HANDS DOWN THE ABSOLUTE BEST CASE FOR YOUR MBP RETINA
From my experience the Speck SmartShell is the best overall case for your Macbook Pro. I originally purchased this case for my Mac From my experience the Speck SmartShell is the best overall case for your Macbook Pro. I originally purchased this case for my Macbook Pro 17" and again for my 15" Retina and thought it's a good case but it does show scratches since the plastic is glossy clear and the feet underneath the case will get slightly yellow with time (at least the one for my MBP 17" did after a few years). I looked at the reviews for the Moshi 15" iGlaze Shell case and thought I should give it a try instead since so many people highly recommend the iGlaze over the SmartShell. It turns out they're very wrong and here's why. Most people said the iGlaze does not show scratches. They're wrong, if you look closely, only a few times after handling the case you can see the hairline scratches... you just see them a bit less because the case is "glazed" but trust me they're there. The biggest problem with the iGlaze is the finish of the plastic. It's extremely slippery in your hand, compared to the Speck SmartShell which has the gloss finish and is extremely sticky to the touch. If you hold both of them in each hand you will see how the Speck SmartShell actually grips better. Even if you only close your MBP and insert it in a bag or like me carry your MBP up a flight of stairs you will take the Speck SmartShell any day over the Moshi iGlaze Shell because it has a better feel in the hand that's safer to carry in one hand. Simply put the Moshi 15" iGlaze Shell case is a straight up fail compared to the Speck SmartShell case. …

I loved the idea and look of this case, unfortunately, there seem to be design flaws.
I ordered this with my new MB Air in March I loved the idea and look of this case, unfortunately, there seem to be design flaws.
I ordered this with my new MB Air in March, within the first few days, it cracked. I'd barely moved it even on the desk. I took it back and got a replacement. Again, within the next few days, still not having moved from my desktop, the corners cracked again and now the bottom shell doesn't even stay on. For the time it takes, I haven't decided whether or not to try and return this one as well. I don't see what good having another one that will most likely crack again will do me. Not a good investment :( …

Not robust at all
This is an appealing product, but with a fatal flaw. The corner tabs on the back of the bottom break off; mine broke within three This is an appealing product, but with a fatal flaw. The corner tabs on the back of the bottom break off; mine broke within three months of purchase. (I'm not rough on my equipment generally.) The feet on the bottom don't hold up well, either; one came off. Other comments here suggest that this breakage is all too common. The product is meant to be "robust," but is not. …

- Asked by Betsy C from Centreville

It doesn't directly lead to overheating.. I'm still able to use it on a day-to-day basis with no pro It doesn't directly lead to overheating.. I'm still able to use it on a day-to-day basis with no problems.. Its just that theres an increase CHANCE of it heating up (not overheating) if you do something intensive...
