It does what it promises...with a couple of minor nits
on December 13, 2011
Speck gives you what it promises: lightweight protection for the Air. And its cool that when the Air is powered up, the Apple logo shines through clearly. The only thing that prevents this from getting five starts are picky points, but they might be important to other buyers. The case is a good matte finish, which is easy to hold and not slippery, but it does show occasional fingerprints if you're a little sweaty. Not a deal breaker. The other thing that is a bit more aggravating is that the slight weight of the top cover sometimes forces the Air's screen to fold all the way back if you've got it angled just at the right point. There are times when (like in writing this review, which I'm typing on the Air) I prefer to have the Speck off - the Air just seems a little more nimble and lighter without it. It's not the easiest to snap on and off if you do it daily, but if you're looking for good, stylish and pretty sturdy protection, I'd go for this Speck.
