    Heed the reviews!

    Great concept, but sadly... poor quality.
    -scratches easily
    -cracks/breaks easily

    My case lasted less than a year. Granted, it has protected the computer, but I would have suspected it to last much longer.

    2 stars for the color ..

    since I was heading to india for a holiday, I had to buy a case for MBA...the only choice i had was speck since it was in the store for pick-up.

    I regret the decision.. i should have just used the cover on my personal MBA till i came back while the Tech21 was delivered at home.

    in less than 15 days i had a crack on the cover and couple of days ago i found that it had chipped!! after my trip back- the MBA sits in the home office on its stand!!! how it happened i have no clue.. but definitely not a product to put your $ into.. just got the Tech21 case.. and i can already feel it so much better. My other MBA has the moshi cover- that it has been there for over a year now.. except for that one time when it was close to the candle- nothing has happened to the case!

    Cracks Easily

    • Written by from Oceanside

    This case is a waste of money. I purchased it in the calypso not five months ago and all corners are cracking badly. It's also slippy so if you're attempting to use your Macbook on your lap or any other cloth surface your computer is going to move around. Definitely not worth the price for such poor quality!

    Please do NOT buy

    • Written by from Brampton

    This case is a waste of money please do not consider buying it. I purchased the purple version and it completely disintegrated within the first month of use. At first the corners completely broke off and then the case just would not stay on. It offers no protection and does not last.

    I'm actually a bit shocked Apple promotes this product, it is not of their standards at all.

    Weak

    • Written by from Lethbridge

    I like the look of this case and I like the small pressure pods on the bottom to give some shock absorption. What I do not like is that the tabs that cling onto the laptop are cheaply made; i bumped my mac into something while i was holding it (not hard just soft bump) and the tabs snapped on two corners and cracked. I have only had this for 2 months. The other thing is dust traps between computer and case easily.

    Difficult to Remove

    • Written by from Portsmouth

    I bought this case less than a month ago for my Mac, and I found myself needing to clean it. After 30 minutes of struggling, I still can't get it off. I do not want to risk damaging my computer, nor do I want to snap the case. Now I'm going to have to consult my local genius bar just to get a friggin case off. Although it has been protecting my computer, there are better alternatives out there that don't require this much frustration. Don't waste your time (or money).

    Not very durable

    • Written by from Cotulla

    I bought this case when I bought my MacBook Pro and it was easy to install and way too easy to break. It scratches the laptop and breaks off very easily. It began cracking the first month I got it. I do not travel very much with my laptop so I was surprised to see it crack and break off so easily. I only move my laptop from my kitchen table to my sock drawer and took it once or twice to my mom's house during xmas. Oh well...now that it has completely broken apart I will look for something better.

    Physical Damage to MacBook Pro and easily 'Snapped'

    • Written by from Tampa

    I feel the need to warn other apple buyers against the speck shell case. I have owned 2 for my macbook pro and macbook air. The Pro was very susceptible to snap at the corners. The first time apple replaced without any problem. It swiftly snapped again in the same corner. However, the main problem is the physical 'scratches' it cause both laptops under the shell! The pro is scratched and indented along the sides of the laptop and the air has small 'dots' across the entire bottom. The shell has actually caused more damage than if it was left off.
