    This is the second one I've purchased for my college student after a year of use the corners were all broken the case wouldn't stay on and the anti skid feet were missing but she wanted another because it was thin and lite!

    I have purchased and had to replace 4-5 times because the corner clip keeps breaking.

    Fits great, but within a Month the Top Right corner of the bottom case that snaps onto my computer appears to be very weak and about to break.

    this cover does not quite fit my laptop, even though it says it is made for it. one of the corners does not quite snap in, which kind of makes it unusable.

    Base cover never fit snug, always fell off on the corners. Screen cover ended up cracking.

    Case if made of thin brittle plastic. Seems to protect against scratches but not much else. After a month a corner cracked off apparently from snagging a bed sheet.

    I had a great experience with Speck for my last MacBook case, but this one was awful. The back corners didn't fit, and a little over a month later one of the corners broke off. I won't be buying Speck anymore for my MacBook cases.

    I kept having issues with one of the corners on the bottom popping off. Plus I wish it was a little lighter shade of gray to still see my sticker on the cover. I ended up returning it. Had better luck with a cheaper, "no-name" cover.

    Both cases broke in my backpack. There is a weak point on the corner. I am very careful with my computer. Hopefully Speck addresses the issue.

    I've tried a couple of other hard shells. I am happy with this one. It looks nice - went on easily - was affordable - does what it was intended to do. 4 stars because the edges are a little rough. They sometimes irritate my skin on the palm rest.

    There was a reason why it was on sale...

    Not sure if I had bad luck but the black case that I purchased did not fit properly. The bottom piece would not snap into place on one of the corners, therefore it would pop off completely. Needless to say I returned it and ordered an Incase from another website. Also, Apple store no longer sells Speck cases, they only have Incase. Maybe that's why?!?

    Major disappointment

    Let me just start by saying I am very gentle with my computer AND I don't even use it daily. When I bought this case I was just looking for extra protection. So much for that, this case cracked off in the bottom corners a little after two weeks!! When I went to return at Best Buy in far under 30 days, I was told I have to send it back to Speck... This is really disappointing and a hassle. Would not recommend

    Overall I feel better having my macbook in this case. It will prevent scratches, but after the second attempt to clip it on (laptop needed a new logic board thus forcing me to remove the cover) a corner snapped off. Seems to be par for the course amongst owners of these things. The plastic degrades over time, but for me, it seemed like I had to force it to fit properly and got unlucky with the piece snapping off. It's small enough though and in the backside so I'll just ignore it. Like I said, this will prevent scratches and I like the subdued look of the Mac within the case, but other than that, don't expect much protection of any other kind.

    Does the job

    The first one I owned did its job, it self destructed to protect the laptop. It seemed like a minor event to make the corner of the case break off, but oh well. I bought another one to replace it, but the bottom shell wouldn't stay on. I had to return it and get another one. This one is staying on and working fine. I would like to see the corners reinforced, as the cutouts make the design less than sturdy at the most likely impact points.
