    Macbook Air 13"

    • Written by from Yorkville

    I've had my case for not even a year and it has cracked from having to take it off multiple times to clean underneath the clear case.

    Looked good, but ...

    • Written by from Spring Hill

    I returned it the next day. It would not allow my MacBook Air to open or close all the way. Poorly constructed.

    Do Not Buy

    • Written by from Hempstead

    This case is more so to protect the surface of your computer. It will be useless if you drop it. I dropped my computer (while it was in a bag & in this case) & it still has a dent. It is useful when on unknown surfaces that may be dirty, wet, or sticky. However, you can probably find something much cheaper for that purpose. Don't waste your money. This thing should be no more than $15.

    Recent Purchase Spec 13" SmartShell Case

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I purchased this case about 2 months ago and it's never stayed on correctly. The bottom half never seems to snap in place and always slides off when I take my laptop out of my briefcase.

    complete waste of money

    • Written by from Decatur

    I use my macbook air as a television basically, therefore I keep it in the same place almost every single day. However I just had to upgrade my case. Why you ask? Oh just because my case was scratched, broken, and then there's the fact that the bottom half wouldn't even stay on anymore! I am now using the Tech 21 case for my 13" macbook air and love it! It fits perfectly, it snaps on much better, and it is very firm, I would recommend it to anyone! Despite the fact that it is a little more expensive, it is worth every penny!

    Ultra Flimsy

    • Written by from Whitestone

    After a week of carrying my mac with the Speck case in my backpack (normal wear and tear?), this case had fallen to pieces! The Mac is completely scratched up, worse than it would have been without the case on it...
    After paying $50 for this case, I was shocked and disappointed that it was NOT protective and that it shattered for no reason within days!

    Terrible Waste of Money

    • Written by from Kilbride

    My Speck case started to crack in the first month. By the third month, it was garbage. I recently bought another, much cheaper case from another company and it's 10 times better for half the price! Don't waste your money on this one!

    AWFUL, cracked within weeks of purchase

    • Written by from WEST SAINT PAUL

    This product is not worth anywhere near $50! The plastic shell began to crack within weeks of purchasing it. I don't travel with my laptop and when I do it's in a soft sleeve. I should have saved my receipt and packaging... also read reviews before buying. Save your $50 for a better product, I know there's one out there.

    Bad Option

    • Written by from Brentwood

    The case was a Cbristmas present and has now broken and cracked in multiple places. It had no unusual or rough use, primarily around the house. The plastic is just brittle and degraded in less than 90 days. Would not buy this again.

    WORST WASTE OF MONEY EVER!!!!

    • Written by from Hamilton

    Ok so I got this case for my birthday (March 16th) from my grandmother who did in fact pay for this case. This case is now (March 25th, not even 10 days of having it) cracked, and the clips are all broken. I take good care of my laptop including the case because I am not a person who wants to pay for something twice so I take care of my things. I am very disappointed, and upset to tell my grand-mother she just wasted $50. Thanks Apple... thanks for wasting old people's money -.-

    A poor quality product

    • Written by from Keene

    I had this case on for 1 day, and one of the clasps cracked. Since then, the case sometimes will slip off, and even more of the clasps have broken. The top half is okay, but the bottom half of the case is dreadful.

    Before I bought this case, I spent half the money to get a hard shell case on Amazon (and it came with a keyboard and screen protector!), and it lasted for 3 years. This has lasted 2 months, so I'm never buying this brand again. Buyer beware!

    Cracks within a month of use

    • Written by from Chicago

    Don't be fooled by the attractive color. All the clips that attach this cover to my MacAir have broken/cracked, rending this thing horribly useless after a month of owning it. It goes from my protected bag to a desk to a lap desk without being banged around. Save your $50. I'm so sad I wasted a gift card on something that broke so easily.

    Zero stars is really my rating

    • Written by from Broomall

    This is an awful waste of money. Cheap cheap garbage plastic that cracks VERY EASILY when you open your macbook. It seems that bottom corners crack very easily when you open your macbook and you may not notice it until you see that the bottom will not stay on any longer. This is my second purchase of this case because I thought that maybe the first one was just bad luck. I was wrong, it's an awful product and should be given out for free because that's really all it's worth.....NOTHING!!! Same problem BOTH times, cracked bottom corners.

    Horrible Quality

    • Written by from Ajax

    I purchased this case primarily because I had a similar Speck hardshell case for my MacBook Pro. I've had the Pro version for 3+ years without any issues. But the MackBook Air version I purchased cracked along the edge within the first few months. Within less than a year, several of the attachment points have broken off the case, so it no longer stays on my computer and is basically useless. I am very careful with my computer, and from reading the other reviews case cracking seems to be a common issue. Don't waste your money on this product, it does not last!

    Disappointed considering my last Speck case was amazing

    • Written by from Austin

    I had a Speck cover for my old Macbook, which my husband commandeered and it is still going strong (cover and computer). I figured since I was getting a new precious piece of machinery, I should invest in another Speck cover (especially since the last one did it's job so well). When I got this $53 cover, I was surprised at how flimsy it was and that it didn't have the grippy texture my last cover had. I figured since my last cover was legit, this one would somehow do the same job. WRONG...this thing has cracks all over it and I have not dropped it once! I submitted my claim to Speck today, since it has a 1-year warranty. I guess we'll see how that goes, but as of now I feel like this case is a total rip-off!

    Don't waste your money

    • Written by from Livley

    I bought it about a week ago and it has started cracking. It also doesn't fit well. I am very careful with my mac, I only move it from my room to downstairs. I would not waste $50 on a case that starts cracking after a week. I am buying a new case.

    DO NOT PURCHASE

    • Written by from Bridgeport

    This case is awful. I bought mine 3 months ago and it has already cracked in so many areas without any hard use. The case cracks from the inside out and around the edges pieces are prone to fall out from what seems like the very wind blowing on it. The case was a mojor waste of money, DON'T BUY IT.

    DO NOT BUY IT

    • Written by from 시흥시

    I would recommend you not to buy this book case. It can be easily broken, and I can't really see the worth of $50. It isn't durable, either.

    $50 Down The Drain

    • Written by from BOULDER

    I am now on my second Speck SmartShell for the MBA 13" I purchased in January 2014. The first one cracked and the tabs that hold the bottom shell on literally disintegrated within 2 months of owning it. I sent it back to Speck (and paid the shipping!) and they sent me another one but this one has the same problem. When I got my 2nd one I also bought one for my hubby's MBP 15" - his has suffered the same fate despite the fact that his laptop never leaves home and mostly lives on a desk. I do take mine to work, in a padded case and I am very fastidious about the care of my laptop but still I've got a case with two missing corners, several cracks and no way to keep the bottom shell attached. This case, in my opinion, is an epic failure with regards to materials and lack of durability. I wish I'd spent that $100 elsewhere.
