Ratings & Reviews
The case looks and feels nice, but the edge rubs your hand.
It looks great. However, after a short period of time, the edge that clips on to the bottom of the computer rubs your palm raw. It looks great. However, after a short period of time, the edge that clips on to the bottom of the computer rubs your palm raw. It hurts. If they redesigned where the upper clip and the lower clip hit the computer; i.e. just move the location of the bottom clip closer to the outside edge of the computer, it would not rub your hand while using the track pad.
Very, very disappointed. …

The case has not interfered with plugging in any of the devices I have used so far. Although thin and lightweight, the case feels sturdy and has afforded me the peace of mind to take my new MacBook Pro out into the world. Additionally, the case is very well-designed visually. When closed, it has the appearance of being a black MacBook with aluminum accents. …

I received mine via mail within 5 days of ordering online, once at doorstep, 3 minutes later was on Mac.
Initially looking at it I received mine via mail within 5 days of ordering online, once at doorstep, 3 minutes later was on Mac.
Initially looking at it online, I was apprehensive thinking that it was too much of a "plastic" material.
Having it in my hands, it has more the consistency of a sturdy neoprene, flexes....is waterproof,
and would withstand minor impact....similar to a durable phone case.
I'm impressed with its simplicity of installation, and function.
Highly recommend for basic protection. …

I purchased several of the "value" priced models from other sources, and each had flaws out of the box. I was also concerned abou I purchased several of the "value" priced models from other sources, and each had flaws out of the box. I was also concerned about them rubbing the finish on my MacBook Pro. The Tech21 is certainly more expensive, but in my opinion worth the price. I purchased the clear model, and I think it looks good as well as having good quality. I think it should be a little less than the price it's listed at, but in my opinion a much better product than then other options. …

This case is worth the money
If you're on the fence about shelling out the $100 for this case, I say go for it! I have had a tech 21 case on my samsung s4 sin If you're on the fence about shelling out the $100 for this case, I say go for it! I have had a tech 21 case on my samsung s4 since it was released and completely love it. When I recently got a MacBook Pro 15" I knew almost immediately that I had to get a good case to protect this beautiful machine. The first thing I did was google "macbook pro tech 21" in hopes that they were in the laptop case market as well as the phone case market. To my surprise, they were. The only problem was that none were available for almost a month when I checked back in late September. So, I spent some time daydreaming and scouring for reviews, leaving my MacBook unprotected until recently when I saw that they were finally in stock. Although some people gave it low stars, not sure why, I took the chance and bought myself a black one. I easily popped it on today and it fits super snug and looks awesome!! I was worried that the front where my wrists rest would be annoying, but it's not at all. It fits even better than I hoped and the impact technology gives me peace of mind. …

Is flexible neopren/plastic, and would not break/crack.
It's a softer plastic, would resist minor impacts and scratches.
I have no worry of it breaking.
So easily installed, just snaps into place. I'd say about 30 second
Hope this helps, I'd recommend it. …

The others do not either (that are sold through Apple), it is just the
LED Apple symbol showing through the transparent material.
Mine is black, and the Apple symbol shines through the case no
problem when the mac is on.
I think black would be the way to go, as when it is off, cannot see
the Apple logo.
Which, if you were ever to accidentally leave your mac anywhere (off),
it might not stand out as much....wouldn't catch the wrong persons eye. …
