    A better case

    I initially chose a less expensive case for my Macbook Air, thinking that it would be just as good. In the few weeks I used it, my laptop never traveled farthr than the distance between my lap and the coffee table and was never dropped. In spite of that, the case developed multiple cracks and breaks along the edges. I threw it away and paid the extra money for the Incase and am really pleased with it. It is light but feels very solid. It is not plagued by smudges and fingerprints. After several weeks of use, including being tossed in a bag, leaned on by my husband, and going through a hurricane, the case shows no signs of wear. I guess you really do get what you pay for!

    I bought this case in January and it has protected my Mac. It has occasionally popped off for no apparent reason throughout the use. I have used my Mac on a daily basis, as a student. So I use it a lot. I am not 100% satisfied with it, as the corners have slowly broken and cracked. It is still on the Mac but just waiting for the day that it cracks completely and breaks. I'm not sure how it could damage this easily just from everyday use.

    I had a 13inch Airbook for awhile. Its a great , portable computer. All you need for everyday expedient use. I took it back, only because I apparently wasn't ready to switch from my PC/Android. I REALLY wish PC's made a great case like this for their PC's. Sigh. My roomie has the i5 Airbook and this case. And I admire and envy it every time I see it.

    l like this case a lot. I buy it for all of my employees (it comes in a variety of colors). My only issue so far was when I dropped mine on a hard floor just right and it forms a tiny crack in the bottom right corner. It was right where my arm rest on my air so I could feel it - so I replaced it. It did it's job and protected the Mac perfectly.

    The product is thin, durable, and a great color. Everything that is shown in the picture is what you get, which is usually not the case for most online products. It did put in a little bit of weight to my macbook air, but this is fine as it is very durable. Make sure you be careful putting on the case as this might scratch your macbook. Overall, it was a great find and worth the money. Quite satisfied!

    Overall this case has held up well, there is a small crack in it but it still works and the crack has now spread. The design is cute, simple and clean. It has a slightly textured surface for a better grip when held. I got this on sale so it was more or less worth the price, but a case from Amazon could very well suffice too.

    Not what I expected

    At first, this seems like a good case to protect your MacBook Air. I have to say that it seems to be very flimsy. It fits nice over the laptop but sometimes the back side catches with the top half, when you open your laptop. It makes a clicking noise. If you are looking for basic protection against minor scratches, it does the job but don't expect it to protect your laptop from an accidental drop.

    I haven't dropped the laptop cover yet, so I can't say much about the durability. However, the color is nice and I like how it allows the logo to be seen. My only issue is when I open it, theres like a clicking noise. The cover also makes my laptop a bit heavier. Sometimes it becomes loose around the clickpad, so I have to press it firmly. Other than that, this was a good cover for my macbook.

    I bought this for my daughter for her birthday to protect her Latop. I got to say its very durable. I wish it came in purple or lavender but this color is nice too. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to protect their Laptop. The only negative thing I would say about it is it has a high price to it.

    I purchased my first case at Best Buy for my MacBook Air and I was really impressed. However it is a little difficult to take off the laptop if you want to change the case in the near future. I attempted to take it off but I was afraid I’d hurt my Mac in the process. I figured that I’d just leave it on it’s not worth it to break the case.

    I ordered this case for my new macbook air 13in with retina after receiving it I put it right on my laptop and it didn't fit so I ended up having to return it because it's for the older model macbook air. I did like the case though and loved the color.

    So far it does what it is suppose to protect out casing of macbook air. Have it on kids and they have not killed it so far. Color is a little different than thought it would be but other than that good case. I think most of them over priced as they are just a piece of hard plastic with 4 rubber feet. They work though for some form of protection.

    Whether it's an Apple error or who's I'm not sure? Case doesn't fit the new Air at all. Confirmed the packaging was correct and the right model/size... stil doesn't fit. Advised by Apple associate that Apple dimensions are not accurate for the laptop.

    Bought this in store during black friday to find out that it does not fit my new macbook air. Of course I should have measured it beforehand but was too excite to finally get a really good case. Would definitely have kept it if it was the right size.

    It does a fine job at what it was designed to do; however, after only a few months, it's started to crack in certain areas. They don't appear to be negatively affecting the overall integrity of the product, though.

    After putting it on when I would open my MacBook it would rub on the bottom part and make a clicking sound. Then when I tried taking it off to return it, it got stuck and I couldn’t take it off I took it to Best Buy and it took two different employees to get it off my MacBook.

    When I tried putting my case on my MacBook Air, it wouldn’t fit properly. It kept popping off and making a clicking noise every time I would open my laptop. The case said that it was designed to fit my laptop but unfortunately it didn’t.

    This is a nice sturdy hard shell but the base has sharp edges that does cause discomfort. That is the only complaint I have otherwise it’s a great color and is a good protector since I accidentally dropped my laptop but it didn’t get harmed. Whew

    My daughter just got a new Mac. She was thrilled to find this color in a snap on hard shell. It is cute. It is hard plastic. There isn't any rubbery or soft surfaces/lining to absorb any impact. That worries me. I hope it protects.

    I purchased early & had it stored away for a birthday present & within less than a week item started cracking (defective). I took back to store to exchange & was told by a manager on duty that I must have broken it.
