The turquoise looks great on the computer, and I didn't want my new Macbook to be dented and scratched like my old one. Today made me want to write a review, though. Believe it or not, I just dropped my computer out of a second story window. It fell onto concrete. The concrete had leaves, which probably helped break the fall. I panicked, but guess what. MY LAPTOP IS FINE! There are some expected scratches and dents, but the case didn't even break. I'm not saying you can throw your computer out a window, but this case is worth the money in protection.

    After buying my first macbook I figured if I'm going to be dragging this everywhere I should buy a case. I picked up this case but After buying my first macbook I figured if I'm going to be dragging this everywhere I should buy a case. I picked up this case but in black and thought it was really nice, even durable. After literally 4 days after putting the case on, the color started wearing off. The corners were turning... 4 DAYS LATER! It didn't even leave my room! Obviously I took it back, and now all the reviews for cases say this is one of the best cases. Very disappointed and for $49.99, should have better quality. Atleast wait until 30 days after, geesh.

I love the color but the shell never stays on. It is always falling off and it is very flimsy. The thing is chipping away piece by piece and I just bought it 3 months ago! For this price I expected something a bit sturdier!

    I'm not sure why so many of these reviews are negative, but I must say that I am extremely happy I bought this case. The turquoise I'm not sure why so many of these reviews are negative, but I must say that I am extremely happy I bought this case. The turquoise color is beautiful and it almost looks like the actual laptop is this pretty color. I purchased my laptop for college a few months ago and was so scared about scratching/dropping it that I bought this expensive case right out of the apple store. Since then, my MacBook has been lugged around in my backpack from class to class and it's still in perfect condition.

    The only drawback to this case is that it scratches pretty easily. I have just been placing it in my backpack with notebooks and folders and there are scratches everywhere already. I know that this is mostly my fault because I should have bought a sleeve or something, but it's still sort of disappointing that it got ruined from simply sitting in my backpack. But overall it does its job well and is a solid case for a MacBook.

It was securely in(fits well) pl It was easy to install but as far as taking out the top part it was a little bit of a challenged. It was securely in(fits well) place and it stays there. The only problem I had was when my case for about 2 months old I noticed that one of the rubberized foot came off immediately emailed specks about the problem. Speck emailed me back and they replaced my case right away. GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE ON THIER PART.

  • Flimsy Design Flaw

    2.0 out of 5 stars

    I had a Speck SmartShell case for almost 5 years on my old MacBook with no issues, so I immediately went with the brand again when I had a Speck SmartShell case for almost 5 years on my old MacBook with no issues, so I immediately went with the brand again when I got the new MacBook with retina display. The unfortunate part is that the bottom piece of the case flat out has a design flaw--the tabs that are on the back of the case meant to hold it on aren't big enough to hold the case without eventually snapping off. The left side of mine snapped off almost immediately and a few months later, the right side has snapped. Now the bottom of the case slides around and has become useless because now I fear the MacBook sliding out while I'm carrying it.

    Unfortunately, I've been searching for a replacement and every plastic shell case I've seen has the same design flaw. It looks like I'm going to have to switch to the hassle of a sleeve because I carry this thing with me everywhere and I want have some protection for it.
