      I did a lot of research before this purchase

      I upgraded my laptop back in December. I started thinking about how light it was and how easily I felt it could get scratched. I wanted a case to protect it, be I upgraded my laptop back in December. I started thinking about how light it was and how easily I felt it could get scratched. I wanted a case to protect it, because I am in love with my macbook pro and want to keep it as long as I can! I looked EVERYWHERE online for cases and read hundreds of reviews. The main thing I noticed was that the reviews were all very mixed. Some really liked their case and some claimed it didn't fit right, broke quickly... I didn't feel comfortable taking a chance and potentially wasting my time. Then I found this case advertised on Apple's website. I saw the price was higher then I had expected to pay, but I read the reviews anyways. I was impressed with what I had read and went ahead and ordered one. Purple, of course! It's been awhile since I first got it, and I can honestly say I love it! It snaps on easily. I haven't had any of the snaps pop off. I don't feel the two snaps at the bottom when I'm typing. The case doesn't get in the way of anything I'm doing. It has rubber grips on the bottom that I also love. My computer feels very protected, and I'm extremely happy I chose this case to purchase! The only Minor downside, which another reviewer mentioned as well.. it does leave fingerprint marks easily. I really don't mind this though. Overall, I would recommend this case to anyone looking for one.

      Great feel and protection, kind of ugly

      I have not had any fit and finish issues with this case. I have had it for about three months, have taken it to school, to the office, to coffee shops, etc. It I have not had any fit and finish issues with this case. I have had it for about three months, have taken it to school, to the office, to coffee shops, etc. It has been in and out of my messenger bag a lot and is not yet showing wear and tear. As two other reviewers have mentioned, it picks up finger prints and grease smudges easily and I also think it is generally a little ugly, but the protection is worth it. I lost a Macbook to damage a year ago that would have been prevented by this case. I like that this case lifts the computer a little higher off the table than other cases because it makes it more likely that a spilled drink will just puddle under it rather than even touching the computer. (That observation combined with the fact that I said my Mac spends significant time in coffee shops probably gives some insight into how my previous computer died.) Bottom line: if protection is more important than appearances and some added bulk, this is worth the (hefty sum of) money.

      Great case, but...

      the black one is a real fingerprint magnet, and looks awful if not cleaned every day...

      Solid Protection

      I've been using hard shell covers on my MacBook Pros for years now.

Some of the other manufacturers I've used have nice looking products, but these soon crack, even when I'm careful about keeping my MBP in padded bags and not dropping it. I did a lot of research, and decided to take the plunge. So far, the case has held up well, and I've yet to see any damage to it. As some other reviewers have noted, the case may be a bit heavy (and pricey), but I feel it's worth it for the protection and durability, especially when compared to what other brands offer. Highly recommended.

      Does not fit new macbook pro usb -c

      Be careful. This case fits the previous macbook pro, not the latest (at least for the 15 inch model that is listed.

      Probably the most protective MacBook shell available

The good: Really well built, fits perfectly, and absolutely no discomfort typing with the case on (some cases' clips stick up and annoy). The case is attractive and unobtrusive. And while I refuse to drop the laptop to see HOW protective it is, I see every indication that it would help quite a bit if the laptop were dropped (although if the screen is open, all bets are off). The bad: Probably the heaviest snap case out there. The extra padding and quality materials aren't as light as cheaper stuff. While less than a pound, that's not nothing on a computer that weighs in at only 3.5 pounds. I would say the case adds about 25% to the weight. If you want/need the protection, it's worth it. I bought this after real thought, and went for the best. If your laptop spends it life on a desk, get something light for simple scratch protection. Recommended.
