    Not bad but not that good either.

    Generally easy to put on. Does its job as a shell. However, it scratches too easily! The shell would have multiple scratchers on right on the first day before I even finish putting it on my mac. Moreover, (I don't know if anyone experiences this) but it's incredibly difficult to take off when it's time to clean. My fingers hurt like crazy when I try to take it off and I'm always afraid it'll break because I had to really use a lot of strength to get the clamps out. In fact, it cracks a bit but it's not that visible.
    Pros: does its job. Fit perfectly.
    Cons: scratches easily (not that visible but it'll irritate you a bit if you're a bit of a perfectionist). Hard to take off.

    I bought this with my $100 gift card from Apple since this is pretty much the only one with the look I want that fits my 15" mac. But honestly, if you don't have the gift card, buy some other brands like Moshi or Power Support.

    needs gentle handling

    After about a month, the small tabs that anchor the bottom shell adjacent to the display broke off. After emailing pictures to Speck, they sent me a new one right away. The case is very nice, thin, attaches very securely, but the small size of those tabs is a weak point. Perhaps with very gentle handling, the case hold up longer.

    Why did it crack?

    • Written by from Farmers Branch

    I bought this case when I bought my MPB. It held up fine for a year, went to Europe, no problems.
    But in the last three months - like just after the 1 year warranty ran out, it cracked. A piece fell off the bottom and the cover has crack in it. It has not left the desk since this summer, but has cracked since then.
    Nothing has been dropped on it, and it has not moved.

    Would invest money somewhere els

    After sometime the corners start to come way. The case allows little bits of debris in between the case and the computer. After a while you'll start to get little scratches in the aluminium. I have had this case for about 2 years now. It will protect your computer from larger thing falling on it but there's not to many benefits to this case other than that.

    SCRATCHES EASILY AND AFTER A LITTLE WHILE THE FRONT BOTTOM PART DOESNT SEEM TO FIT AS TIGHT AS WHEN PURCHASED. GOT THE MOSHI CASE TOO AND FOR 10 DOLLARS MORE THINK IT FAR SUPERIOR IN FEEL, STYLE AND FITS THE MACBOOK FAR BETTER.
