    Probably avoid

    • Written by Jessica L from Bury

    I have had 3 of these cases now. Look good but all have cracked at the corners without anything other than routine use i.e. never dropped etc. Apple have previously exchanged under warranty and have now approved refund. I do not want t exchange for the same as I strongly suspect the same would happen again.

    Good quality, breaks too easily

    • Written by Tom O from Conder

    Nice build quality but broke in 6 months. All the corners cracked and small parts of the case also cracked off. Very disappointing given the price and the fact I carry it in a sleeve for extra protection but it still broke.

    Would Not Recommend or Repurchase

    • Written by Hannah L from Alexandria

    Bought this case for my 13" MacBook Pro. It was ok for a few months. Then the top cover kept coming off. Took a close look at the case and it was cracked on all four corners. The bottom cover has not cracked as yet. I have never dropped my laptop, set it down hard, or anything of that nature. This is just poor design.

    I Wanted to Like It

    • Written by Aarin W from Springfield

    Don't waste your money. This case did look lovely for two weeks. It's thin plastic, matte but not rubberized; maintains a slim profile. The clips are minuscule, but they have held it on so far. A couple have cracks, so I'm afraid to remove the case lest they break. Every corner of the case now has cracks; all the top corners have started to chip off. I treat my computer EXTREMELY gently. I've had this case 8 months and it's falling apart. Another (cheaper!) case brand I had previously lasted 5 years, no cracks, protected my older MacBook Pro flawlessly. I'm switching back.

    Disappointed in Apple's ONLY choice for a case

    • Written by Joshua C from Jupiter

    I bought this case about a month ago at the Apple Store. As another reviewer said I did like the excellent fit and the fact that it doesn't really add any weight to my Mac. I have not experienced any cracking on the corners as other have said. These are the only reasons this is a 2 star review. You CAN'T open the screen all the way so that you are sitting at an odd angle to have a good viewing angle. I'm really disappointed that this seems to be the only case Apple sells for this computer. I really expect more. I would gladly pay $100 for a nice Tech 21 case like they made for the last model of the MacBook Pro to protect my $2500 investment. I'm keeping this one on for now but will be purchasing something else as soon as something different is available.

    Average case

    • Written by Nick J from Manukau

    The case looks great and did the job, but after a few weeks it began to crack and a few months later it is barely hanging on my MacBook pro. The corners cracked almost immediately and continued to crack with the Macbook being placed and carried within a sleeve. Not worth the $70 price tag at all :(

    Incase Hardshell for 13" Retina MBP Cracks in Corners

    • Written by Fred F from Jefferson

    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.

    Harshell case for new MacBook Pro

    • Written by Daniel B from seattle

    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.

    Not worth the money !!

    • Written by James S from East Bergholt

    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.

    not made well

    • Written by Auriel B from Dallas

    I have two major issues with this case. 1... It prevents you from moving your screen all the way back without damaging your MBP. 2... It cracked on the corners and I hadn't had it but a week. Apple did let me return it and I have the tech case now which was more but did not damage the screen and is made of different material.
