I am one that MUST read a review (prior to purchase), I absolutely love this case. My plan was to get one before now, however, it is very true to color (as seen on this page) and nice and smooth in texture. So far, this case appears to be very durable and was extremely easy to apply. The only con I have is that the case seems to have made my 15" Mac w/retina display a little heavier. I will definitely continue to use this product and can't wait for more colors; maybe something in a coral for the Spring...thanks, Speck & Apple.
