    Disappointing performance

    I needed to replace the hardshell laptop case on my MacBook Pro because the old one had cracked and broken beyond use. Best Buy only had one option for my laptop, this Incase Designs Hardshell Laptop Upper Shield Case. According to the associate who helped me, this brand had replaced the previous brand because it was a better, sturdier product. Within about a day, I could already see stress fractures on one corner of the case. As of now, all four corners are cracking and chipping. This case has performed no better than the previous one I had. Most disappointing is that Best Buy doesn't carry any alternative.

    Better than any other case for Macbook

    I’ve used countless Speck cases and products on my MacBook to protect it, but this one trumps them all. With Speck, they replace your product as long as it is in the one year window, and I’ve had to replace it several times. However, this Incase shield I’ve not had to replace a single time because of its sturdy build and supreme quality. The only drawback is, when taking off the case, you have to take your time so as not to damage the plastic clips which fit around the corners of the MacBook. Otherwise, I feel safe knowing my MacBook is very well protected in this Incase shield.

    Poor quality and overpriced

    Bought for my daughter going to college to protect her Mac. Thought it felt like thin junky plastic from the start but we were in a time crunch after having to return another style we bought from an online co. Then, there were just not many (if any)options to choose from that day at the store. Figured for the price it must be alright. She had it 3 weeks at school and the top corner was already splitting and missing tiny pieces. $$$ wasted. To note, she never dropped it, and had it in a soft sleeve when taking place to place. She said it was just not good quality for daily student use.

    Nice case but not for new MacBook Pro

    This case is nice but I was told by Best Buy staff that it would fit my new MacBook Pro but it did not fit. When choosing a case for the new MacBook Pro please look for the “USB-C” reference. I had to return this case and make a second trip. Hopefully this helps someone from making the same mistake that I did and even Best Buy staff did. Honest mistake but Apple Probably should’ve named newer MacBook something else to avoid confusion.

    Protect the Mac!

    I have owned several Mac laptops and other products. This is the first time I have purchased a case for one of them. My daughter was going off to college and I was thinking how much use her laptop is going to have in and out of backpack every day in multiple classes. My son had previously bought an Incase Design for his macbook pro and he loves it. So far so good! No scratches on the aluminum and the case has protected as it should. I would expect my daughter's macbook pro to last through her graduate degree with this case in place!

    I purchased this as a replacement cover - my old one cracked (different brand). I’m amazed that the new one fits perfectly, since my laptop is several years old. I just wish the texture of the new one wasn’t so slick. It slides into my satchel easily, but feels slippery when carrying it in my hands. My old cover had a coating on it that you could grip better.

    This was such a great great purchase from Vest abut. We looked around many days in search of that perfect protection for our laptop. The product is reasonable priced and offer a lot of protection should my child drop the laptop which has happened many many times over the years. We are very happy with the purchase and would tell anyone who is in the market to buy that.

    If you have a MacBook Pro or any other MacBook, you have to protect these excellent machines. I been using a clear Incase cover on my 15" MacBook Pro and it has been outstanding. When I bought my 13" MacBook Pro recently I wanted to use the same Incase brand, but there were none on display at the local Best Buy store or listed on line. I have a few favorite sales people . He looked up in the store inventory, found what I needed in the back room stock. Best of all it was on sale.

    Wasn't as advertised

    The laptop case was advertised to fit a MacBook Pro 13", which is what I own. However, upon purchase, it didn't fit my model. I think it was probably for an older version, but I'm not sure because the packaging and branding didn't specify anything beyond 13". Whenever I returned it, the cashier even said that there had been a bunch of returns for the same reason over a short period of time.

    Doesn't fit all MacBook Pros

    With the new MacBook Pro with the light up keys at the top there are not two sizes for MacBook Pro's with the same screen size. This is confusing when trying to buy a protective case. This case will fit the MacBook Pro that has the light up function keys. It didn't fit our MacBook Pro (no light up function keys) but it appeared to be well made.

    This is my second Incase Laptop case, I bought a second Mac and decided to purchase the same brand as what my other laptop has because that one lasted me super long and it's still in good condition... This one on the other hand is falling apart already. I am not sure If the one I have was defective but I am very unhappy that I spent $50 for a case that lasted me 3-4 months before breaking :(

    I've been using a Incase cover on my 2011 15" MacBook Pro and it has worked great. When I purchased my 2015 / 2016 13" MacBook Pro I wanted to offer the same protection for my laptop investment. Best Buy didn't have one on the floor, item was found by sales person in the stock room at a clearance price. Made me very happy, I was able to get what I needed at a very good price.

    Excellent MacBook Shell

    I've had a couple different brands of MacBook shells, and these are slightly thicker, with beefier corner protection, I typically get about a year to 18 months from a shell, with the no name brand ones cracking the corners off in about a month, but it looks like these might be a little more robust.

    This case we bought form y wife's 13-inch MacBook Pro. it previously had a cover, but that fell apart over time. With this new case the MAcBook looks very smart again. Since this case is made of similar plastic as the previous one I expect that is will give out over time, hence the four stars.

    I purchased the Hardshell Shield Case for my MacBook Pro Retina to protect my computer from scratches. It was easy to install and the cutouts give me access to all the ports. The rubber feet keep the computer from sliding around on the counter top. I do wish it was offered in more colors though!

    After exhausting myself of researching and testing many other similar products, this product won hands down. This is a good product and one that is very strong. This pricy st is definitely one that will be around for a long time and i would highly recommend it for those looking for a top notch screen protector.

    This is a great MacBook Case that protects and looks great! Its Lightweight and formfitting. This type of case was suggested by the Apple Store because my last case damaged my MacBook, which caused a costly repair. Highly recommend this case.

    Precise Fit

    Purchased for my late 2013 Macbook Pro with retina. Both top and bottom shells are an exact fit and do not block access to any ports/vents. Hopefully these shells will not leave pits in the aluminum Macbook case like I've ready about with other shells/covers.

    Although I loved th case initially within just a few days I started to notice cracks in the corners. There are now cracks in every corner. It’s not very durable.
