    Just what I was looking for

    • Written by Jim B from West Linn

    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.

    Top Piece Does Not Fit

    • Written by Adil Z from Waterdown

    I purchased this case with my 15 inch 2018 MacBook Pro. When I went to install the case, the bottom piece fit on perfectly but the top piece did not. I spent a solid twenty minutes trying to figure out how to get it on. In the end I gave up trying to put on this garbage clear case. I am not willing to wrestle with a $3000 laptop just to get a case on it. I ended up returning this device back to my local Apple Store at which they did the return swiftly for me. For $100 CAD this case is definitely not worth it. The case is obviously not molded properly and defective. Tech21 should redesign this case and Apple should pull it from their stores.

    Cover Issue

    • Written by Nancy B from San Diego

    My husband bought this case for me for Christmas and we were disappointed. It looked beautiful, the bottom cover snapped on to the laptop properly but the top cover did not. We brought it into the apple store where we the reps exchanged it for the same model and it had the same problem. We ended up returning it.

    Scratched horribly.

    • Written by Luigi G from Eltham North

    Looked amazing out of the box. Out of my leather briefcase with its own special section but scratches, scratches, scratches; everyday more and more. I seems to protect the computer but looks horrid. I have a tech 21 case for iPhone that lives in my pocket all the time and hardly a scratch. I'm holding out to throw it out. Disappointed and probably won't buy Tech 21 again; another company that relies on reputation and then lets go?

    Problem Cover

    • Written by victor J from Howell

    Nice to look at...However upper half refuses to stay on. Pops off suddenly even though I followed the instructions exactly. Lower half locks securely in place. Tried everything nothing seems to keep the upper half secure. Wife threw out the box. Very unlikely will get my money back. Not exactly a happy camper!

    Great case!

    • Written by Brad J from Stone Mountain

    I've always had some kind of shell case on my MacBook Pros but eventually they always seem to crack or become brittle. This case is made of a more pliable and flexible material. It may scratch but it fits well and doesn't seem like it would ever get brittle like the other cases. Very nice!

    Great quality Annoying features

    • Written by Andrew P from alexandria

    I love the look, design and overall feel of this case ive had many cases for macbook pros and airs in the past and i have to say that this has been the nicest one that ive owned. The overall quality of the case is very good and it looks are 2nd to none if you are looking for a clear case. Id highly recommend this case to anyone in the market for a hardshell case as it uses the best materials in plastics and gives it an overall great look and I do think that it is worth the extra money over other cheaper cases I have owned in the past. My once concern with this case is the fit on the top layer. Im not sure if mine is a factory defect of if they are all like this but the top layer of the case will pop off almost every time I open the macbook from the opening slit if i don't absolutely baby it. I feel as tho this is a factory defect but am not sure. For 100$(after tax and shipping) this case should NOT do this and its quite annoying as if I dont want to encounter this problem I either have to lift up the screen from the sides or touch the top of the screen bezel and get fingerprints on it which is something i do not want to do. There is a built in slit on the mac for a reason , so you can open it with one finger and not have to touch the screen. Overall its a great case minus this one inconvenience and would recommend it.

    Nice case

    • Written by GARETH C from Rooty Hill

    Nice feeling case. Only problem is it gets scratched fairly easily and it's a huge dust magnet, I get dust under it all the time which is annoying, but there's no damage to the actual MacBook Pro

    Build quality is definitely impressive though, much better than a lot of other cases

    Soper Case

    Nice case but it scratches very easily

    • Written by Jessica W from NEWARK

    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.

    Very nice case!

    • Written by Robert H. Z from O'Brien

    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!
