    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.

    If I'd had the option, I wouldn't have given this product even one star. I purchased this case alongside my 13-in MacBook Pro back If I'd had the option, I wouldn't have given this product even one star. I purchased this case alongside my 13-in MacBook Pro back in February of 2014. Within two weeks of my having put it on my laptop, the bottom casing cracked along the edges and, within a month, would not even stay on. I ended up taking it off and then purchasing a new case elsewhere for around $20.00: I've had said case for a month now and it has thus far proven a far better investment than the SmartShell. To cut to the short of it, don't waste your money. There are alternatives to the Speck case; all one has to do is shop around a bit.
