Breaks and scratches easily
I have had this case for 2 weeks and one of the pieces that hold it to the computer has already broken off. The case scratches ver I have had this case for 2 weeks and one of the pieces that hold it to the computer has already broken off. The case scratches very easily, although this is better then scratches on the computer. I am very careful with my computer, so if it breaks this easily for me, I would not recommend it for someone who is tough on electronics. …

Very Beautiful Case/Perfect Color
I am one that MUST read a review (prior to purchase), I absolutely love this case. My plan was to get one before now, however, it I am one that MUST read a review (prior to purchase), I absolutely love this case. My plan was to get one before now, however, it is very true to color (as seen on this page) and nice and smooth in texture. So far, this case appears to be very durable and was extremely easy to apply. The only con I have is that the case seems to have made my 15" Mac w/retina display a little heavier. I will definitely continue to use this product and can't wait for more colors; maybe something in a coral for the Spring...thanks, Speck & Apple. …

I am now on my 4th case of the same one because I have to keep returning it and getting a new one because it BREAKS super easily. Within the first three days, there are already stress cracks on the front corners of the case that houses the bottom of my computer. This has happened to ALL 4 of these cases. There are also two very small pieces holding onto the back of the computer, and each has broken off. I love the sleek feel and satin finish, but this is ridiculous! The same cracks and breaks are happening in the same place each time and I barely move my computer from my desk. Such a bummer! …

I suggest you find another case with quality and well worth your money instead of this case! In fact I still have this case right now and it is slowly cracking, breaking and chipping! Please get another case instead of this one because after a week of owning the cases, they cracked and broke right away! This case is not worth your time and do not give it a second chance like I did! …

BREAKS FAST - ok first but meh
I bought this case and was pleased for it for about a month and a half.....until a little piece of the bottom case (one case cover I bought this case and was pleased for it for about a month and a half.....until a little piece of the bottom case (one case covers the bottom of the macbook pro, and one covers the top) fell off and broke. Game over.
The bottom of the case now just slides off and doesn't protect the computer at all. Totally ineffective.
I wish this product came with a year-long warrantee, because (chances are) you may have to buy 4 over the course of a year...
Nice-looking and doesn't get dirty though... …

Will this fit the latest 13" retina display macbook pro, the one with the haswell chip?

Yes. I just picked one up and it snapped right on. The lid portion fits a lot more snug than the bot Yes. I just picked one up and it snapped right on. The lid portion fits a lot more snug than the bottom. I haven't seen one on the older model but I may return it because its bugging me to have a slight creaking sound when I pick it up with one hand (when open) and I feel it slightly moving/detaching. It might be a good idea to keep it for the long term protection but the slight weight increase is noticeable when the Pros are so light now days. All that said, I can't imagine another brand would be better at this issue, it seems to be a function of this type of cover. …

How durable is this case?

- Jul 6, 2013
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! …
