    Incase 15" hardshell case for MacBook Pro - Don't buy!

    I had purchased a hardshell cover for my MacBook Pro 15" about 2.5 years ago for about $35 and found that after only about 12 months it started to split around the corners and virtually fall apart. So I decided to purchase an 'Apple accessory' hardshell case, the Incase model, which I thought would be superior quality being on the Apple store...but it was worse! ...and cost more...$60!! This case is now more cracked and falling apart than the 'cheapie' after only 5 months. Whatever you do, don't purchase Incase products...poor quality! By the way, I rated this product one star...and that's because I couldn't rate it 'zero' stars.

    Great case

    Those who say the case doesn't fit properly - I thought I had the same issue, but that's just because I wasn't putting it on properly, and you do have to use a bit of force when putting it on. Haven't had any problems with it since, and looks attractive and feels sturdy. I like how brightly the Apple logo shines through despite having purchased the black case.

    Would Not Recommend

    I am always very careful with my electronics and this case has multiple cracks in all four corners after one year. I even keep this computer inside a soft case inside my backpack and the case still is cracking in all corners. I am highly disappointed considering that this product was purchased at the Apple Store. I definitely would not purchase from "incase" again.

    Incase Hardshell for 13" Retina MBP Cracks in Corners

    My wife and I both purchased 13" Mac book pros from the Apple Store and the incase hardshell seemed a good purchase. We bought ours on recommendation of the Apple Store, since they sold them there. As other reviews point out, cracks appeared in multiple corner areas of my wife's Mac. We attributed it to an inadvertent mishandle of some kind, because my incase seemed fine. I've had mine for just over six months and I always carry it in a padded Codi backpack. I saw cracks in three corners today that were not there yesterday. I know for a fact I did not mishandle it. The product needs some more design work. I'm very disappointed because it does take care of the computer she'll as far as oils and scratches.

    Do not buy this case

    I bought this case from the Apple website thinking i would get a quality and protective case. It doesn't fit correctly and lets dirt in. I have taken it off twice, and the corners have cracked and the case is falling apart. A total waste of money. I would not recommend this case to anyone.

    Please save your money!

    I bought the Incase hard shell for my brand new 13 Inch macbook pro with Retina Display. Unfortunately, I decided to return it because the quality of this product is not worth the price i paid. The design was pretty simple for a case that is over $40. The black hardshell case has the incase design on the bottom right corner of the display part and the bottom is perforated to supposedly allow ventilation for the macbook pro. While the bottom of this case could be removed without any effort, the display portion was very hard to remove for cleaning. As i removed it, the bottom right corner broke and was continuing to break as I tried to open the laptop for class. Eventually, the top corners of the bottom shell started breaking at the same level just from constantly opening and closing my laptop. The break in the case could potentially scratch my macbook pro because of the sharp edges. It is supposed to protect, not damage a product.
    Overall, it is not worth the money.

    Just bought this today

    So when I read the reviews for this item before buying I had mixed feelings about it. Only because there were more negative than positive comments about the case. However, on a hunch I went into my local Apple store and tried the case on my device. The moment I did I was impressed with the weight of the case and how it did not add any weight to my Macbook. I have owned cases for my Macbook but they were third party cases from Amazon which they fit but they didn't really wow me. This case does ....you can tell that this case was meant for this device. Now I can carry my computer with me just like an iPad and not have to worry about dropping my device. Now I will agree that this case most likely will not protect my computer from a drop but it will keep the outside free of scratches and oil marks from my hands. Very happy.

    Fantastic case

    I needed a case as I was going to use it for school (in and out of bag). So I wanted to avoid scratches on the aluminium unibody. I felt this case was much better than others like from Speck. It has not disappointed. The black colour makes my macbook look even better than it did before. Also, when the macbook is off you can barely see the apple logo, but when it is on you can see it and I'll be honest; it looks awesome.

    Not worth the purchase

    I am not tough on my computers. However accidents can happen so just in case, I wanted to provide extra protection for my computer. When I bought an apple laptop in Dec 2014, I purchased my first incase hardshell. In addition to the hardshell, I also store my computer in a neoprene soft zippered case. 6 months after I purchased my first case, I noticed a corner was cracked. Not sure how the damaged happened but I decided to give this product another try (as they only carried the Incase protectors at the local Apple store) and bought a second case. 6 months later and my new case is again broken at a corner. Wow... seems the 6 month mark is as much life as you will get out of these cases. My advice - don't waste your money - these are obviously a substandard product.

    2 cases, same result

    I have now had 2 copies of this case and both of the cases cracked in the corners immediately. With the first case I did not bother with the cracks but over the course of 4 months eventually the cracks became up to 4 inches in length. Also, one of the cracks wrapped around the corner of the case and cracked of the top left corner of the case. I have had the 2nd case for 3 days and I can see the beginnings of the same cracks forming. Beyond disappointing quality, do not ever get this case!

    Too expensive for its quality

    It's only been 3 months since I got this case with my new laptop, and I am already seeing cracks in the back corners and today I found the top left corner of the screen with a piece chipped off! I did not spend $50 on a case to see it getting scratched and damaged after just three months. I am very careful and gentle with all my valuables! It also doesn't protect the edge of the black hinge on the outside, if that is important in your purchase decision.

    Just What I Was Looking For

    I ordered this item on January 18th and received the case on January 19th without paying for overnight shipping!. Besides the quick receive the case fits like a glove and has a very matt finish.

    ncase 13" Hardshell Case for MacBook Pro with Retina display

    i recently purchased this product as i was looking for a case for my mac book pro looking online there wasn't much available. I went for this one as it looked well suited for my laptop. It has a professional look to it and it fits securely. It doest make my laptop feel bulky or add to much extra weight. Overall its a great product , however, its a bit to expensive for what it is.

    Bad case quality

    Just bought it on 9/15/15 at the Apple store, I used this with a sleeve cover and put in my backpack that have an exclusive mac/laptop space BUT even with that, this cover got 4 cracks in less than 3 months. So I comeback to the store to return this item, very smooth, no questions asked, as always best costumer service from the apple guys. And very bad design/quality of this "Incase" brand, I will not buy this brand again.

    Harshell case for new MacBook Pro

    I bought this case directly from the Apple store, along with my new MacBook Pro, in order to keep my computer looking new. Unfortunately it did not work.

    Small bits of dust, crumbs, dirt, or sand easily fall into the sides of the base portion of the case, lodging themselves between the metal surface of the computer and the plastic shell. This quickly becomes a problem as the case flexes and moves, grinding these particles against the metal computer body, causing small dents, scratches, and scrapes.

    I am disappointed with this product as it did not keep my MacBook looking new, and have since taken off the bottom part of the case to protect the computer from further damage. If you plan on moving around with your MacBook at all, I would not recommend this product as it is likely to damage your computer.

    poor build

    Would not recommend this case.
    Purchased this case for daily use at college, just an extra bit of protection, I noticed a small crack on the bottom after a week or so but wasn't to bothered. I recently attempted to remove the shell as I much prefer the look of the macbook with no case but it began to crack when I did this so am now scared to take it off incase it cracks fully and breaks as I song want to have to buy a new one.

    Very disappointing

    I decided to purchase this case as one it was recommended by Apple and sold in their stores and two it was also endorsed by one of the store staff.
    The case doesn't fit properly and provides little to no protection.

    Do no purchase this case

    I purchased my laptop less than a month ago and wanted to protect my investment so I bought the Incase for Macbook Pro 13" with Retina. The case started cracking within a few hours! I thought maybe I put it on wrong so I took it back to the store for an exchange and asked a store employee in putting it on. They had a difficult time putting it on as well. Once again, got home, it was already cracking at the sides. This should have been a clue. I went back to the Apple store a third time, once again I had another employee remove the old shell and put on a new one, this one started cracking just a tiny bit so I decided to put up with it. However, now a week later I notice a even bigger crack. There are only a couple other reviews, and they both say the same. The employees insisted they have never heard of this happening but this has got to be some sort of manufacturer's defect. I love Apple and figured even though this is not an Apple product that they would sell a product in their store that they would stand by. I am very disappointed. For $50 this is a terrible product. I hope Incase does the right thing and fixes their defect. Thank you.

    Not worth the money !!

    I bought this as I am a traveling sound engineer so I thought I would protect my new mac with one of the most expensive cases I could find. I received it and fitted to my mac. It doesn't fit properly around the back exposing the corners next to the hinge and while in some places it fits well in other it didn't. It also leaves a slight gap on the bottom for dirt to roll around scratching up the bottom. So for the price tag I thought it would be perfect fit providing the very best protection. I've bought other on eBay which would the job for 1/5 of the price. Which I feel would do the same job.
