    Nice case; would recommend

    • Written by from Nashville

    I really like this case. It's sleek and protective and doesn't take away from the beauty or slim lines of the Macbook Pro. It seems to have a really tight snap on fit that was even slightly difficult to remove, which I like. The original case I ordered was scratched out of the box (and not on the side with the protective peel away), but Apple had a new one at my house the next day when I called to exchange it. It's brand new, but right now I would highly recommend it even with its expensive $50 price tag. I'll re-review if I have any of the problems that others have had, but so far I love it.

    Best Hardshell Case for MacBooks!!

    • Written by from Kirksville

    I just read some of the reviews below and felt compelled to offer my opinion and counterpoint - I disagree with the naysayers!!

    I bought Speck smartshell cases for my MacBooks: my first was purchased 4 yrs ago for my MBP and the second in Fall 2013 for my MBA. I take care of my cases, use my laptops appropriately - they don't drop, fall - I place them carefully onto tables, avoiding wetness, moisture, dust, etc.

    I use these cases for one reason alone - to keep the bottom of my laptops from directing touching any foreign surfaces. To that end, this product is PERFECT and there IS NO SUBSTITUTE!! I don't have any problems with breaking or cracking. My shell-case is in the same condition as the day I bought it - minus the minor scruffs from actual usage (i.e. placement onto surfaces for use).

    I not only have repurchased this product myself, but I've recommended this product to friends and family.

    Being in design, I know that everyone is different. One person's "attention to detail" may be sub-par compared to another. Again, I can't speak for others on why they have cracked cases; we don't actually know how those people use their cases. Mine remains perfect to date and I've never had to rebuy a shell for the same computer.

    My 2 cents...

    Excellent protective case !

    • Written by from PORTLAND

    I've had this case on my MacBook for over 2 years. It's traveled many, many miles with us. Fits like a "glove". I bought the bright red one and couldn't be any happier. I searched the web and made the right decision with this cover. I have no com plaits and only kudos for their products. Hope this helps you decide. Semper Fi. Patrick.
