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 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. …

At almost $100, is this Tech 21 Impact Case considerably better than the Speck, Kuzy or other cases in terms of shell material & protection?
- Asked by Jeffrey C from Haworth
- Jun 17, 2014
Yes, this shell is significantly better than others and well worth the extra expense. It's lightweig Yes, this shell is significantly better than others and well worth the extra expense. It's lightweight and fits perfectly, the installation is a piece of cake, as is removing it. The Tech21 Impact Case has not hindered the original appearance of my Mac (no scratches or scuffs) and unlike other shells I have purchased, the weight of it doesn't force my screen to fall back if opened slightly exceeding 90 degrees. So in a nutshell, the Tech21 Impact Snap Case is PERFECT, PRETTY and you can continue to strut around as a confident Mac owner as the transparent shell allows the "one and only" apple logo to shine through. ENJOY and Keep On Keepin On! …
