I ordered this product for my Macbook. Since I'm a college student, my computer goes everywhere with me. I wanted a case that was durable and cute. I also like to eat near my computer so I really wanted a keyboard cover as well. When this product arrived I was thrilled by what I received! I did have ONE slight issue. The keyboard cover did not lay flat on the keys. I emailed the company and within 24 hours they responded and sent me a new keyboard cover which arrived in less then 2 days! They have great costumer service! I am thrilled with this product! The case is really well made and looks adorable too! Totally buy this!

UPDATE August 24, 2014: Two years after my original purchase and I am still using this case. It has protected my computer well and is still in great shape! Read my original review below:
I just got a new 13" MacBook Pro, and determined to protect it, I decided to get a case for it. (Although I don't think I seriously abused my last computer, I didn't really take that good care of it either, and it got to the point where it was barely functional.) I looked at several different cases until I had narrowed it down to to this one and the iPearl mCover case. At first I was going to choose the latter because I read about the little feet that hold the laptop up and supposedly help with the cooling system. Then I read some reviews indicating that those feet weren't sturdy and that some people found their cases were too loose. They also reported that they had tried to get in touch with the manufacturers and had not heard back. In my opinion, this did not bode well.
On the other hand, in the reviews for the TopCase model, most were quite positive (though I'm aware of how few there are so far), and anyone who had any difficulties reported that TopCase had gotten back to them promptly and sent them replacements. Also, I like the fact that this model is "rubberized." The fact that I wouldn't have to order a separate keyboard skin cover didn't hurt either. The mouse pad was an additional bonus.
My order arrived well ahead of schedule, but as it turned out, the bottom part of my case was too loose. However, as soon as I reported this to TopCase, they sent me a replacement, which arrived equally promptly. This time, the case snapped on perfectly. I am very pleased with both the product and the customer service.
My one complaint, though I suspect this is true of most cases, is that the case does seem to cause my laptop to heat up. I had been warned by an Apple "genius" that leaving the keyboard skin cover on was a bad idea, since the keyboard is part of the venting system, so I only place the skin on when I'm typing. However, even with that off but the rest of the case still on, the computer still heats up. Even when I have left it alone for a while. It doesn't get terribly hot, but it is certainly warm, and when I tested the computer with the bottom case off, it remained cool. So in spite of the cutouts, the case does seem to interfere with the cooling system. So now when I'm at home, I leave the bottom case off, and just snap it on when I take it to school.
Also, be sure to actually SHUT DOWN your computer before transporting it. Don't just put it in sleep mode. I made that mistake with my last computer, which I think is the main reason why it got so messed up.
As for the keyboard skin cover, I find that it doesn't interfere with my typing at all. But I play the piano so perhaps I'm more used to striking keys with more force. Also, as others have said, it is true that some of the characters are misaligned with the characters on the keys underneath. However, it's not something I mind very much, but maybe that's because I hardly look at the keyboard when I type.
One star removed due to the fact that it heats up the computer, but overall, a good product and one I would recommend.

I was looking at every store & every website for a nice case for my new MacBook Pro but some were too expensive or not the color I wanted. I saw this case & immediately fell in love. The color & keyboard cover is EXACTLY as depicted in the photos. I love that you can still see the Apple logo through the case whether it's lit up or not. The case can show fingerprints easily but I've found that a dry cloth wipes away prints easily! The case is a perfect fit & it was easy to snap on. It did come in an envelope but it was not damaged at all so thank goodness for that! As for the keyboard cover, it aligned with all my keys perfectly & when I type, it doesn't move around. It does take some getting used to, it has a very soft, gummy feel to it but I like that it'll help to keep my board free of debris & it's easy to wipe clean as well! Just either wash with warm water & soap or use baby wipes! When my keyboard lights up, you can still see it under the keyboard cover which is a plus! As for shipping speed, I was very satisfied! I ordered this on a Wednesday & received it on a Saturday which was 4 days EARLIER than the estimated delivery date so I was super excited to see this in my mailbox! I love purple & I would recommend this to anyone who loves purple. This is a very soft, lavender color & the keyboard cover is a darker purple. If anyone has any questions about this product, I'd be more than happy to help!

Quick shipping, worth the money. I posted pictures of it in royal blue. Only cons are the keyboard protector notsitting perfectly flat and the eject button is misprinted as a power button. But it does it's job and doesn't affect closure or leave prints on the screen.

I chose this rating because the case and the keyboard cover is awesome and is perfect for a 13" MacBook Pro.
i really liked this because it fits perfectly, also if you were wondering with this case your able to see the apple light up through the case. I would recommend this product to any who is looking for a case thats won't scratch or dent the outside its a plastic hard case that feels soft like rubber.

I waited for this for a while and when it finally came, I was surprised that it was stuffed in a measly gray envelope packaging, not in a box with papers or something to protect it from being cracked in the shipping process or anything. Anyway I opened right away and there are 3 pieces: front and back hard case covers + keyboard cover. No mouse pad, but that's okay.
The disappointing thing was it didn't fit my laptop! It was an inch too big, so of course I couldn't snap it on. After all that wait.
And furthermore, now that I heard from the seller, I am to ship it back with my own money to get a refund. Great.
Waste of time!!

Unbelievable. I took off my case after about a month or so to check on my MacBook and it left little dents all over!!! really?!?! I bought this and now it costs me over 5 times the amount I paid for the cosmetic damage it left on my computer?! There goes my hope at reselling it. Do not buy

I bought this and right away I noticed a black speck on the top of the case. After contacting them, they gave me a $5 refund if I kept it instead of replacing it for an unblemished one. Shortly after purchasing this case, both edges started chipping and I am NOT rough with my laptop. All I do is tote it around in my backpack and use it around the house. Very, very unhappy with this product and am about to purchase from a different brand.
