Shock-absorbent rubber bumpers help protect the corners of the laptop when you zip the case and holds the laptop in place.

I really like this case. It's very well made and provides excellent protection for the Macbook Air. I especially like that I can fit my MBA inside this sleeve with a Speck SeeThru Satin case on the computer itself.

Unfortunately,I've had the same problem with the Bubble Sleeve that many others have from what I've seen online.
I read about the fragile zippers and so made a point to try and be careful with mine. Nonetheless, after the Bubble Case had taken only it's second trip away from home inside my well-padded Targus laptop bag, I pulled it out to find that the RUBBERIZED ZIPPER HAD SNAPPED IN HALF. The problem is that the actual, metal zipper inside the pull doesn't extend through the length of the (once) nice-looking rubberized zipper pull. This is exactly where it snaps off, apparently really easily.

It's a bummer of a flaw that leaves the case looking somewhat cheap, especially since the 'pulls draw attention to themselves and get compliments. Now, people comment on how "that case looks brand new and the zippers ALREADY broken?!" Not what I wanted since I use my Air for work and want it to make a professional impression when it comes out of the bag. My Hard Candy Bubble Case kinda let me down in this respect.

I was really pleased with this case when I took it out of the box and tried it out. It's a perfect fit for the 13" Mac Air, and the interior corner tabs are attached with velcro so you can adjust just how snug you want the fit. After two weeks of light use (I tend to use my iPad more the the Air) i took it out of my briefcase one morning and saw that one of the branded rubber tabs attached to the zippers was snapped in half. I found the other half inside my briefcase. Nothing out of the ordinary had taken place, briefcase wasn't dropped or any other incident that would have created stress on the case, so i think the rubber tabs are just of poor quality. I was disappointed to return the case, but this is supposed to be a high-end brand and I expected higher quality. This is the only aspect of the case that found any fault in, and the tabs on mine may have been an exception that should not have passed a QA inspection, but be warned.

Ever since I bought my awesome new 13 inch MacBook Air, I have struggled to find a case that would protect it adequately, let alone fit it snugly. I tried a few cases, including two different ones from the Apple store, and ending up returning them all, either because the fit was too loose, the laptop body could be scratched by the zipper during insertion or extraction, or the case just didn't offer enough protection, particularly if placed in a backpack full of books.

When I searched Amazon.com for cases that would fit the new 13 inch MacBook Air, I came across the Hard Candy Case which looked interesting. I then went to Hard Candy's website for additional information, and I was sold when I saw the rubber shock mounts inside the case that the MacBook Air sits in (NOTE: the photos shown on Amazon.com for the interior of the case are NOT correct. They may have been from an earlier version of the case which was never released. Go to [...] to see the actual photos of the interior and then buy this baby from Amazon.com. There you will see the protective rubber bumpers that the MacBook Air sits in.)

I had to wait a couple weeks to get this case, but I received it a few days ago and the wait was worth it. This case is super stiff and will easily protect the Air inside of a case full of books or other loose items. I also like the design which provides some degree of shock protection if the case was dropped, and the case opens completely without any chance of the zipper or other hardware scratching the body of the Air.

I am completely satisfied with this case, and it gives me the confidence that my beloved MacBook Air will be well protected..

I recently bought the late 2013 Macbook Pro 13" Retina and was in the market for a brand new case but there's no brand dedicated for the retina laptop, and only for Macbook Air/Pro combos at best. I wanted a sturdy and rigid case for protection from accidental drops and that will not get smushed inside my bag full of textbooks, so neoprene cases were out of the question. After hours of research, I narrowed it down between this HardCandy case and the Booq Viper Case - both of which are hard cases. I ultimately chose this case for the following reasons and never looked back.

PROS
-Aesthetic design - unique design, received many compliments.
-Bulkiness - the case adds minimal bulk to my laptop.
-Bubbles strategically placed on front and back of the case (15 on each side) provide an extra layer of protection when dropped.
-Shock-absorbent rubber bumpers help protect the corners of the laptop when you zip the case and holds the laptop in place. The bumpers have velcro attached and are easily detachable so you can adjust it to fit your laptop.
-UPDATE - the rubber bumpers are smooth on the edges, not jagged as suggested in one of the Amazon pictures.
-Snug fit - BIG SELLING POINT - the main reason why I chose this case over the Booq case. While this case is made for Macbook Air, the dimensions of which are slightly larger than my Macbook Pro Retina, this case provides removable rubber bumpers that can be adjusted snugly to hug the Macbook Pro Retina.

CONS
-The metal zipper only goes up to half of the rubber piece and is prone to snapping off and breaking if pulled from the rubber end. Just hold the rubber portion close to the zipper when opening the case and that should be fine.
-pricey at $50.
