      Very nice case!

We have spent an almost ridiculous amount of time resea This case is a gem in a sea of mostly terrible cases that are available for the latest 15” MacBook Pros. We have spent an almost ridiculous amount of time researching and reading purchaser reviews of products from other manufacturers. The Tech21 case is quite pricey, but it does provide the following: For a lightweight and trim case, it gives a MBP reasonably good protection against scratches and wear and tear. It is made of TPU, a specialized plastic that has a bit of ability to actually absorb some impact. The material is not soft and slippery like silicone, and not hard and likely to crack like Lexan. Because the case is not thick (not necessarily a bad thing) it should not be relied to protect the computer from drops of any height, especially at the corners and at the bottom rear, where the hinge design and ventilation port design of the MBP make it difficult to provide more protection. The top rear of the case does overhang the rear edge of the MBP giving a small measure of protection. The case allows the screen to open fully, way past 90°, not hindering the viewing angle adjustment in any way. The case fits very well (easy to install and remove) and is crystal clear. In our opinion, it actually enhances the appearance of the MBP adding only slightly to the dimensions and weight. The case has a Limited Lifetime Replacement Warranty from the manufacturer (a real rarity). It is a very nice case, especially when you consider the alternatives. Highly recommended!

      Nice case but it scratches very easily

      The case is nice and it looks great on the MacBook, but that's short-lived. It gets scratched and banged up easily which then makes it look bad. Only have it on The case is nice and it looks great on the MacBook, but that's short-lived. It gets scratched and banged up easily which then makes it look bad. Only have it on for a few weeks. Hopefully, it lasts longer than the other brands.

      The case fits 2019 MacBook Pro 15" with Touch Bar !

      Hi everyone, I purchased this case and then read the reviews afterward. I was surprised to see reviews indicating that the case did not work with the 2019 M Hi everyone, I purchased this case and then read the reviews afterward. I was surprised to see reviews indicating that the case did not work with the 2019 MacBook Pro given that Apple's filters and recommendations suggested that it should. To help others looking for a case for their MacBook Pro (2019) I want to let you know that it DOES FIT! In fact the fit is quite perfect and it appears to give the laptop a great level of protection. Suggestions for those experiencing what some have reported: Case not fitting, especially cover: The case fits and when placed on correctly, you can open the laptop without the case snapping off. I believe the varied experience is based on how one puts the cover on. I found that you must slide the cover on to the top part of the screen of the laptop first. There are two very subtle but necessary reinforcements that keep the cover in place here. Similarly, there is one of these reinforcements on each side of the screen. Snap these securely in place. Finally, as you approach the base of the screen, there are several smaller reinforcements that also need to be snapped into place. So this side last as these smaller reinforcements are easier to snap in place than the those along the top part of the screen! Scratches: I've not noticed any scratches on my cover, however, I completely expect that scratches will occur. If and when scratches do occur, whether they be few or many, I am happy that the cover is there so that the scratches aren't on my laptop! Sure, I also expect there to be far more scratches on the cover than I would see appearing on my actual case without a cover. After all, the case is plastic, which is known for easily being scratched, whereas the laptop is finished to minimize scratches. I hope this helps!

      Macbook Pro 15 (2019)

Have a 15" macbook pro (2019) and was willing to spend the extra money to purchase what I thought would be a better cover. Unfortunately the top of this cover dealt me a fit when trying to attach (looking at the tight almost seamless way the screen attaches to the bottom half of the device I had my doubts in the first place). Was never successful in attaching the top and felt that if I applied too much pressure I might damage the screen (don't force it). Tried looking for instructions but nothing on/in the box and couldn't find anything online either. I gave up and will take it back to the Apple store tomorrow. VERY negative experience and definitely do not recommend. Tech21 ... how about some simple instructions might help???

      Just what I was looking for

      I was leery of this case, as I am of all cases, due to bad experiences in the past. I also worried whether I'd have the same issue that other reviewers have had I was leery of this case, as I am of all cases, due to bad experiences in the past. I also worried whether I'd have the same issue that other reviewers have had with the top popping off. So far, this thing is perfect. Well built, nice clear plastic that's not too hard and not too soft, and it fits perfectly. The key is to press the top on using pressure all along the edges, not just the corners. The case not only keeps the beauty of Apple's design showing, but also provides a bit more slip resistance when carrying, more grip to open the top from the closed position, and a little more stable base so it doesn't slide around on my desk. The price is outrageous, but it's worth it.

    • Does the cover protect the trackpad and/or the keyboard? Thank you

      Answer

      The case only covers the outside top, bottom and sides, except for areas that need to be left open ( The case only covers the outside top, bottom and sides, except for areas that need to be left open (ports, headphone jack, and areas needed for ventilation, and to allow unencumbered opening of the display).

      There are a number of inexpensive, protective skins available for this model. Some are better than others. Do some research and above all, read the reviews, before purchasing. My recommendation is to not use them. With top-of-the line laptops such as the MBP, I recommend keeping your hands reasonably clean (no food or drink nearby!!), and the inside of your laptop vacuumed and free from foreign substances, as much as possible. Skins for the keyboard and trackpad have a reputation for destroying the feel and usability of the computer.
