    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!

    These cases are the best thing you can possibly buy to protect your Macbook for a decent amount of money. I've had mine for about 3 years, and I'm only replacing it because I wanted to a girly color. People are complaining about the quality, which is a ridiculous complaint. It's made of plastic, not magic. This case is designed to be put over your macbook and left there. If you put it on properly and you take good care of your macbook, you shouldn't have a problem with broken pieces and you definitely shouldn't have chunks of the case missing! While many people have had these cases for multiple years without a problem, you shouldn't expect to have a plastic case last much more than a year because it's rather unrealistic. Bottom line: if you want to protect your investment and look good doing it, then this is a necessity.
  • Broken Bottom

    I have had my case for just over a year and the bottom is falling apart. Not only have the round bumpers on the bottom cracked, fallen, off, and complete shattered; the clips that attach it to the actual laptop broke. Only one of the four clips still is attached to the laptop. The top half of the case has fared well and has no damage. They need to sell just the bottom half somewhere.
  • Durability...or lack of...

    Considering the bottom is so fragile, maybe Speck should consider: 1) reevaluate the making of this product or 2) sell the bottom as a separate unit at a fraction of the price...the concept of an attractive protective case is great but Speck should do better on the quality, especially for the price.

    I have had my case for over 3 years now. The only reason I am replacing it now is because my clear one has gotten scratched over time, but my computer is in perfect, like new condition! It has done a great job of protecting my computer.

    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.

    I disagree with the other reviewers so I thought I'd share. I've had my SmartShell case for almost a year and it has protected my macbook pro from everything! Not only does it look just smashing (can't tell you how many compliments I get), but it has survived many trips back and forth from school, home, starbucks, the library, etc without any breakage. It's held up perfectly. Also, I have a terrible habit of snapping the case on and off when I'm bored and not one crack. Even if it broke at this point (almost a year after initial purchase) I would buy another in a different color. Highly recommended!

    Before I applied this case on my macbook pro 15", I trusted Speck. They have durable iPhone cases. However, this case is not worth the price. I used it for only 3 months, there is scratches everywhere, and it looks very dirty because of that. What's even worse, the bottom part easily comes off and it does not really fit. I am extremely disappointed with this case, and I will no long use it anymore. Not worth $50.
  • Looking into something cheaper from Amazon

    I bought this $50 case to go with my new MacBook pro for college, and I haven't been overly please with it. After only a couple months of having it, I have lost two big chunks of the case and I have a crack on the bottom of the case. I'm pretty careful with my MacBook, but from just being in my backpack, It hasn't been able to hold up to normal,typical backpack wear and tear. I am extremely disappointed after spending so much money. I would return it, but It requires paying for your own shipping and handling as well as meeting certain conditions to actually get your money back. As a college student, I don't have the time or money to mess with that. I plan on buying something on Amazon for much cheaper ($12), and unfortunately I would recommend anyone else thinking of buying this product to do the same. Sorry!
