Will crack and chip
Be warned. While this is perhaps the lightest and thinnest of hard shell-backings it is a stiff piece of plastic. I never mishan Be warned. While this is perhaps the lightest and thinnest of hard shell-backings it is a stiff piece of plastic. I never mishandled my iPad yet this case has cracked all around the metal insert (the purpose for which remains a mystery). It has chipped around the dock connector and front center section where you lift the smart cover. All within the first three months.
Save your money. For this price you can buy two full cases from other manufactures. …

Excellent case for iPad
Purchased the Speck SmartShell for use with the latest Retina iPad and it is a great case for a slim but basic level of protection Purchased the Speck SmartShell for use with the latest Retina iPad and it is a great case for a slim but basic level of protection for your iPad. The texture of the case is great for increased grip and the ability to fold back the Smart Cover (sold separately) so it magnetically clips to the back of the case is a welcome feature. Protects well against minor bumps against the body of the iPad without adding too much bulk, but do not expect it to protect against full drops - you will need a 'beefier' case for that. Very happy with the purchase - highly recommended! …

Excellent hard shell back case with a rear magnet to hold the Apple Smart Cover when folded back. I particularly love that the iP Excellent hard shell back case with a rear magnet to hold the Apple Smart Cover when folded back. I particularly love that the iPad 4 is completely seated in a polycarbonate bed that rims the entire iPad. The cut outs are spot on and this back case is a very tight fit although I have been able to remove it when needed. The clear see through one is very smooth where the smoky black has a tacky feeling to it. The clear one can and does show scratches easily but is not a deal breaker for me. I have one of each; clear and black and use them both with a red leather Apple Smart Cover which I'm also a big fan of.
If you don't have a need for absolute protection and like a minimalistic feel then this combo of back case and Smart Cover may be right for you. …

Also on Speck's website, it shows a smartshell case for the retina version, but it says "coming soon", so I would think if they are releasing a case specifically for the retina version, I would imagine the original one isn't compatible. I have asked Speck if they know the release date for the new case but they don't know yet. …
