    worth it

    • Written by from Buras

    I have had this clear, hard, snap on case for three years now. It has scratched and broken in places (no cracks, just the snap locks), and that's why I'm looking to replace it. I was surprised to see all the negative reviews for this case. It is difficult to get on and off, but I feel like that is a good thing, because its not going to come off of my computer. It is like a second skin for my laptop, and I don't even know its there. I have many furry pets, and fur gets everywhere, but this case does a fairly good job of keeping stuff out. Every three months, I take the case off and clean my lap top. It still looks as good as the day I bought it. My laptop has ZERO scratches on it! If you ask me, this case did 100% of what it was supposed to (macs are notorious for scratching, and look awful once they've been scratched). Over all a wonderful product to me.

    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.
