    Horrible waste of $52. Am very particular about my computer, very protective of it in every way. This was the only protective case Horrible waste of $52. Am very particular about my computer, very protective of it in every way. This was the only protective case the Apple store had it when I bought my newest MacBook Air. Cracked in many places within three months--despite the care I gave it. Saw a lady in a hotel's breakfast area with the same computer, same case. Hers cracked also despite her protection of the computer.
    Bottom line: this is but a speck of protection for any MacBook Air!

The case is difficult to get on at first use, and is also a pain when using it. If my computer is open at more than 90 degrees _| (like that) the lid falls back _/ (like that). I got clear, and it is nice, and it does add a bit of extra weight to the product, but the design is okay, it just bothers me that it always falls all the way back whenever I'm using it

I returned it and ordered this one. The initial installation can be tricky, but once installed it is a great product and well worth the price considering the alternative cost the same.
    I give it 4 stars for the tough installation, but highly recommend it.

Huge waste of 50$. This product is terribly overpriced for the horrendous quality.

    I really like this case. It's sleek and protective and doesn't take away from the beauty or slim lines of the Macbook Pro. It seem I really like this case. It's sleek and protective and doesn't take away from the beauty or slim lines of the Macbook Pro. It seems to have a really tight snap on fit that was even slightly difficult to remove, which I like. The original case I ordered was scratched out of the box (and not on the side with the protective peel away), but Apple had a new one at my house the next day when I called to exchange it. It's brand new, but right now I would highly recommend it even with its expensive $50 price tag. I'll re-review if I have any of the problems that others have had, but so far I love it.
