I never write reviews, but...

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 don't suggest it at all
I bought this when I first bought my laptop, despite the semi-steep price, directly out of the Apple store. I've had it for hardly I bought this when I first bought my laptop, despite the semi-steep price, directly out of the Apple store. I've had it for hardly a year now, and it's cracked, chipped, and falls off at the lightest pull. In the beginning, I used to have to cut my fingers in order to get the case off (which I had to do often, since it always lets dirt and other nasty substances into it, making my laptop gross and sometimes sticky). It's chipped all around the edges, leaving sharp corners that constantly hurt me. It lost 3/4 of the nubs that are supposed to keep the my computer on tables and stable within the first couple of months. However, despite my relatively rough use of my laptop (I have cats that like to push it off the table, or it sometimes slides off my lap because the case is so smooth), it has kept my laptop from breaking (though it does have several small chips and scratches), which is why I feel I must give it at least two stars. …

I've had it for about a month now on my brand new MBPR 13" and it still looks as new. I would just treat the case the same with I treat my Mac...handle with care. I don't see why it wouldn't last for others if they were taking care of it. It is pricey, but it does its job. Pair it with a nice mac case (I have a herschel co sleeve) and you should be good to go! …

It doesn't directly lead to overheating.. I'm still able to use it on a day-to-day basis with no pro It doesn't directly lead to overheating.. I'm still able to use it on a day-to-day basis with no problems.. Its just that theres an increase CHANCE of it heating up (not overheating) if you do something intensive...
