I wanted to write a review to let everyone else out there know that apparently dell has changed the size and shape of the lid on the new inspiron laptops. I just purchased a Dell Inspiron 15 inch laptop computer. On the website the only options that dell offered were 3 solid colors. I didn't like those boring choices when they had all these fun patterns out here. I bought this one. Just recieved it, I love the way it looks, it's totally me. Opened it and it is larger than the opening for the switch lid and will not fit in the space whatsoever. It appears that they have changed this years models and the older lids will not fit. I think people should be aware of this so that they don't make the same mistake. I think it's really crappy that there is no indication anyplace that the old lids will not work for the new computer of the same make and size. Misleading.I guess I am going to have to list it here and see if someone with an older model laptop will buy it from me now. This sucks majorly.

The covers being sold on Amazon do not fit 2012 model Dell Inspiron 15R laptops! Do not buy these covers for a 2012 Dell Inspiron 15R unless Amazon updates their inventory and then specifies in the online listings which year/model cover that you are buying!

I've now purchased two of these flimsy, cheap, plastic covers (ridiculously 80+ bucks for two after taxes and shipping) and neither of them fit the 2012 Dell Inspiron 15R that I just bought and the online sellers everywhere appear to be completely oblivious to the fact that the 2011 lids they are selling will not work--and cannot be made to work, with any 2012 Dell Inspiron 15R laptop.

I'm very angry about this because I bought two of these covers for my 10 year old daughter's upcoming birthday and now will not be able to give them to her along with her new laptop. What makes matters worse is that even the Dell website fails to address the fact that the SWITCH lids ARE NOT COMPATIBLE between the same model name laptops for 2011 and 2012.

This is the second Dell Switch Lid we own. Dell did a great job with these lids the fit and finish and quality is top notch. The lids are very easy change making for a nice makeover. Amazons price is about $20.00 less then what Dell sells them for. We'll be ordering more of these lids.

I ordered this and got it within two days and it was gorgeous and I would have loved to have put it on my lap top... if I had the right kind. Be careful when you order because there are two types of 15R laptops, one that has a special button for switching the lids easily and one that doesn't. I have the one that doesn't allow you to switch the lid so make sure you check your lap top has the button on the back that allows you to. Other than that, the purple horizontal lid I ordered was gorgeous and I loved it, I just couldn't use it unfortunately.

I bought this for my daughters birthday and the size was just slightly off to fit on her 15 inch dell laptop. It was after the return time by her birthday so I couldn't return it. Waste of money for me

not fit into the hooks of the laptop, even though the ad was saying it worked for that model. I lost my money on this.
