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. …

Flimsy Design Flaw
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. …

The price was a bit too much for the make and durability.the only positive thing I'll say about the cover is, its a nice color. …

Yes, if you have a sticker on your MBP it will be easily visible. Honestly, the case is difficult to Yes, if you have a sticker on your MBP it will be easily visible. Honestly, the case is difficult to even know it is on if you don't know what they look like. The case is crystal clear so every detail on the macbook can easily be seen. That's why I chose this case. I love the way the MBP looks and I didn't want any of it's "glory", if you will, to be hidden behind silly colors. …
