I am revising my review from a 1 star to 5 star rating! speck has apparently modified the product to eliminate my issue that it did not fit the new, 2010 MBP 15".

This product has been modified to perfectly fit the 2010 15" MBP. The revised ones have a blue sticker on the box right-hand side about midway down which says "Yep, it fits! the new MacBook Pro with 90 degree MagSafe."

I did buy it in person at the Apple Store though. They appear to have new stock of the product which has this sticker. I can't say for sure if Amazon has this new, revised model in stock OR if they have older model. If you order online, etc. from Amazon or Apple and it doesn't have this sticker I'd return it for one that does.

And, it works and looks great!! Just as advertised. I got the black, SeeThru Satin. I like the extra "grip" that the Satin variety/model supplies. Less likely to slip out of your hand than their non-Satin model (which I personally find very attractive visually but, a bit too slippery) - especially at the airport where you are constantly taking your laptop in and out of your baggage. Highly recommended. Easy to install or remove.

They have also modified their regular, SeeThru product line as well. The ones that fit the April 2010 model have the same blue sticker as noted above.

Kudos to speck for addressing this issue!

Again, owners of the newer 2010 MBP MUST look for ones that have this blue sticker. However, this is not at all an issue for owners of earlier MBPs. All models will fit it.

------------------------------------------------------------------
DO NOT BUY ANY OF THE SPECK PRODUCTS IF YOU HAVE A NEW APRIL, 2010 MBP!!!!!!!!!!!

There is a design issue with the back left clip on the bottom cover.

I bought this a few months ago, and there is one major complaint: it affects the closure of the lid of the macbook. I tried a speck a long time ago with my regular macbook and also noticed this, but wasn't sure if it would also affect the new macbook pros: it does.

If the lid is not at a normal opening (for normal use), then the additional weight of the lid will cause it to either close (when opened a little bit), or lean back further than you want it to. Basically, this case is too heavy for the Macbook Pro. I wanted something that would protect the computer, but not at the cost of functionality of the lid. Sometimes I want the lid closed just a little bit, or maybe I want to carry the macbook somewhere without closing the lid.. both of these are hard to do with the Speck attached.

Sorry guys, the case looks nice and it's a good idea, but you have to make it lighter!

This case arrived a couple days after I ordered it. It fits both the October 2008 and June 2009 unibody Macbook Pros (15.4") perfectly. The case has a snug fit, feels great, and looks very professional. It was very easy to snap on and doesn't scratch the laptop whatsoever--it's very protective (although I can't guarantee it will do much if you drop your Macbook--for that I recommend the polyurethane case by Be-Ez). I love how the apple icon on the back of my Macbook illuminates through the case. Although fingerprints (which can be cleaned off) show up more on this satin Speck case than the hard-body Speck case, the Satin case doesn't accumulate scratches as much. Overall I love this product and would recommend it to any Macbook Pro user.

I bought this case about a year and a half ago, and was very happy with the purchase. The case was sleek, looked nice, fit well, and seemed to protect my Macbook from dreaded scratches and nicks. It required monthly cleaning in order to keep dirt and particles from becoming wedged in between the case and the Macbook, but that was a small price to pay. However, in the long run this case is NOT worth it.

After a year or so of use I noticed that my Macbook's screen had become wobbly and was no longer stable. When I pushed it back, there was about a half inch where you could pull the screen back up and it would just fall back down. While it doesn't necessarily affect the performance of the laptop, it is a nuisance and whenever I pick up my laptop when it is still open it wobbles back and forth and I feel like the screen will snap off any minute. I took it to the Apple store and they said that not only could they not simply tighten the hinges of the screen, but that if I wanted it fixed I would have to replace the entire screen for $700. The 3-year warranty I purchased apparently does not cover this because through "normal use", this wouldn't happen. Apparently "normal use" is defined as not using a case-apparently the Speck case added weight to the screen that it is not supposed to carry, this weakening the hinges.

Also, the case raises the temperature of the Macbook by a LOT. I'm not really sure of the exact numbers but I noticed that when I ran the Sims 3 (a very CPU-heavy program),the fan began to whir very loudly and clearly was running at max power to try and get all the excess heat out. However, once I removed the case the fan ran at medium power and was not nearly as loud, indicating that the temperature was not as high as before.
