I've had this case for 3 going on 4 years. It's the best case you can invest your money on to protect your laptop. I take my laptop just about everywhere I go and this case protects my laptop from scratches and dings. After 3 year, I'm replacing it with a new one as this one is all scratched up but it still in pretty good condition.Sammy

    I have been looking for a protective snap on case for my Macbook Pro Late 2011 edition. I ordered one on Amazon from a private seller for $12.99 very similar to the Speck product, however when it came in it was very cheap feeling compared to Speck's and the part for the bottom wasn't flush to the area with the trackpad and keyboard, leaving a hard plastic piece pressing into my wrist while I typing. I finally came across this product and decided to give it a try. It came in the mail just moments ago and immediately after installing, I felt comfort and durability as well as protection. It only increased the weight of my Macbook a little and is serving the purpose!

    The design is great and I hope to someday see one that allows the Apple logo to shine, like a logo cutout version. But great product!

    This case is great!! It and my mac turned 4 in 0ct 2014. The case is scratched because I use my laptop heavily. I bring it in my backpack everywhere I go. I use it on job sites (I'm a mobile mechanic), I drop it, slide it, and just completely abuse it, and it still looks new when I take the case off. Everyone else is just too picky, it's a protector for your computer, not a show piece. It works as it should

    I love these cases. They look nice and they are sturdy and do what they are advertised. However, I feel that once I reach the 8+ month range in these cases, I have to start considering buying another one. I haven't dropped my current case and yet I have the same problem as my first (which was dropped) and that is the corners break after so much use. If you try to take off the case like you're supposed to in order to clean your Macbook Pro, then eventually these corners break off and do not allow you to use the case anymore. They need to be sturdier in order to clean your Macbook correctly (as it says to do in the instructions for care). If this was fixed, I would feel more comfortable spending the price. Because like I said earlier, the case DOES work. It just needs sturdier corners to keep the case on longer. Buying a new case every 8-12 months is just not something a college kid can do easily even if it is a must to keep your Macbook pro in good shape.

    Please fix the corners!

    I replaced this case twice. Speck was nice enough to replace once. However, the case cracks in the corners and bottom falls off. After the second case don't think they are tested properly for usage.

    I don't know why people think this is such a bad product, but I love it! I had a normal MacBook Case for school and it lasted for more than 2 years, and the MacBook Pro Case is even better! Came in 2 days, and was very easy to put on. 10/10 would buy again

    I bought the 13" lightning yellow case approximately a year ago. I LOVE how it glows on the edges. Unfortunately, the bottom case has cracked where the top clips are supposed to be located and I have it duct taped just to keep the bottom on. The top case is still intact at least. When I take off the cases to clean, there are still no scratches, which is what is keeping the stars higher. Due to spending so much money on a case that didn't even last a year, I will not be purchasing a laptop case from Speck again.

    I just got my MacBook Pro for Christmas and wanted a really durable, but attractive-looking case. I had heard great things about Speck's cases and even though it was fifty bucks, I figured it would be a worthwhile investment. Unfortunately, nearly seven months later, I'm finding out it wasn't worth the price.

    I ordered the Calypso Blue and upon receiving it, I was not impressed with the color. It looks so pretty online, but in person it's much greener and darker (a little bit lighter than the Zircon Green option). While I didn't love the color I decided it wasn't completely awful and I could live with it. One of the first things I noticed after putting my case on was the looseness of the bottom piece. The clasps that hold it on the computer are very flimsy and weak (and eventually broke off) and the section below the track pad would move every time I repositioned my laptop. Not to mention the case digs into your arms when you type (ouch!). Also, the case gets scratched and scuffed really easily- which I guess would be okay if it protected your computer, except it doesn't (more on this later).

    ***Just for clarification I watched about ten instructional videos about how to put on this case so I know it was put on right. Also- I am extremely careful with my computer. I carry it in an Incase neoprene sleeve (which I love) and it never gets shoved in a backpack. Other reviewers have said that the only way this case would break is if you weren't careful with your computer, but I can assure you I am and it still broke.

    Probably the most disappointing thing about this case is that it doesn't protect your computer from scratches. I took it off last week and I had a bunch of really noticeable scratches all over the bottom of my laptop. So much for "keeping scuffs and scratches as bay". I mean it's whatever I'll just buy a new case, but especially for the price I was really disappointed. Maybe my case was just defective, but regardless, I wish I hadn't wasted fifty bucks.

    My title says it all....3 years on my 15" and the computer looks great. The cover withstands bumping, scraping, finger prints, scratches, etc. I'm not sure what cover the complainers have but I am ready to get a new one simply because I would like to change the cover. If you aren't satisfied with the Speck cover then keep it in a safe and operate from there!
