The snapping o get this if you want your mac to be utterly damaged and scratched on areas where the case hooks on to your machine. The snapping on of the case scratched my MBP and left white marks which caused my resale value to drop by nearly 50%. If you're someone who protects your product, please do not buy any casing that snaps onto your machine. It kills it. …

Not as good as previous Speck cases
I have used numerous Speck cases over the years and this is the worst one yet. The last case kept going strong for 3+ years, but t I have used numerous Speck cases over the years and this is the worst one yet. The last case kept going strong for 3+ years, but there is serious quality problems with this one. Like the other reviewer, I too had the rear bottom tab (just next to the right hand USB port) snap. Speck needs to really take a step back and assess these quality problems, because other than the tab snapping right off, the case does not fit as snug as models they have made before. I will be returning this and getting a different case or waiting until someone makes a really good one. …

I have had a speck case on my macbook air for 5 years with zero incident. My macbook pro 15 inch retina? has gone through THREE I have had a speck case on my macbook air for 5 years with zero incident. My macbook pro 15 inch retina? has gone through THREE of these in a year. The bottom tabs holding the case on inevitably snap off - and not from abuse either. It may just be this model, but buyer beware, it will happen. I keep purchasing them because i'm an attorney and like the black matte case so my computer blends in in this PC world...
If i had another option, i would take it. …

Looks great, but it's brittle

If it only did not break, it clearly i Works fantastic, your computer does not slip from your hands, it is also really protective. If it only did not break, it clearly is the wrong material choice for the shell.
Maybe Speck can take the hint and choose another plastic, it would be a great product. Funny no one out there has taken their design and run with it. …

How durable is this case?

After a few months of owning this case, and one test drop, I have come to the conclusion that this i After a few months of owning this case, and one test drop, I have come to the conclusion that this is NOT a durable case. I took it off for cleaning my mac, and guess what? The plastic buds that hold the case onto the mac snaps, and falls off. All corners! The middle of the case has a huge crack. The case makes the mac super heavy. And when I took it off, there was too much dust, literally stuck to the Mac. And also, this case makes the Mac overheat countlessly whenever I hold it on my lap. It is blisteringly hot to the touch. As soon as I took the case off, my battery performed normally, No more warnings about the battery overheating. Do NOT get this product! …
