Yes, it's pricey. If you're looking for a good value and function over form, keep looking. There are much cheaper options available that provide better protection. But if you're reading this, that's likely not your MO. I can't tell you the number of compliments I've received since I started using this - people love it. And more importantly, I love it. Also, the "security feature" of looking like a book is legit. It's always fun to see the look of surprise on people's faces when I open my "leather book" for the first time, revealing (an equally beautiful) MBA inside.

One thing that surprised me is how much I enjoy using it while it is still in its case. I didn't expect this at all and had just assumed that I would remove the case whenever in use. I've never had an issue with the computer getting too warm, and the convenience of simply closing the computer and zipping up is great.

My one minor gripe (other than the initial price, which is water under the bridge now) is that I miss the feeling of carrying around an impossibly thin laptop because of the added bulk. It's not a huge issue, but I do have a tinge of envy whenever I heft my wife's 13" MBA in a slim neoprene sleeve. The benefits - being enormously more attractive and providing better protection - still far outweigh the downsides though. One other minor gripe regarding protection though... The hard covers on either side offer excellent protection, and the soft interior is great as well. However, the zippered sides of the case provide little protection from impact. I'm always a bit paranoid of this when setting a backpack down when I have the case inside.

I waffled for some time on whether or not to pull the trigger on this one (my wife's eyes bulged when I divulged the sticker price...), but I can now say that I'm definitely glad I did.

Size: 13-inch MacBook Pro with RetinaColor: Rutledge Leather
Note: I bought this case directly from the TwelveSouth website. Its been available there for well over a month. Shipping was fast, and I received the case without issue. I'll post some pictures of the case a bit later. I've also updated this review at the bottom.

Now, I've had a BookBook case prior to this one (a classic black BookBook for iPad 2-4). Other than an occasional creaking sound, that case has served me well, and continues to. It looks classy, is functional, and gives excellent protection - 3 traits that almost no other cases have, I've found. I purchased a Retina Macbook Pro 13 inch late 2013 for college about a month and a half ago, and immediately bought this case to protect it. And I love it. Why?

-This case looks wonderful. Now, my iPad BookBook looks quite premium by most standards, with it's weathered yet sturdy look, but this case puts it to shame. The iPad BookBook has a plain black leather cover, while this case has a glossy finish. Trust me when I say that pictures don't do it justice - this case just OOZES beauty. Very unique pattern, and the colors are beautiful. But its the glossy finish that REALLY sets it apart from my other BookBook. I was unsure of whether or not I would like it, but it is really nice looking.

-This case is at least partially functional. Sure, not on the same level as the iPad BookBook, which could be folded into a multitude of positions to serve as a stand, with camera cutouts and a nice protective sleeve. Still, this case has two little...slip-like things that hold the Macbook in the upper left and right corners. Meaning, whenever you open your BookBook case, you also open up your Macbook.

-You can keep the Macbook in this case during use.

I now own three of these cases. I love this case for three reasons: a) it's durable, b) it's protective, and c) it's an attractive conversation piece. If you are comfortable with the price of this case, it is well worth having.

I only have one core complaint and I have found a matching solution. There are two elastic straps which keep the back of the case attached to the monitor as the case opens and closes. Over time, the laptop often slips forward across the smooth leather causing the monitor to slip outside these elastic straps. The solution is to cut a strip of no-slip material and put it underneath the laptop. That is all you need.

I have loved my BookBook but I have had to send it back because it BROKE! The strap that keeps your computer in place has snapped.

The same thing happened to my new one! And they make you pay to send the old one back even though it's a product/manufacturing issue. I'm very frustrated by the fact that it breaks at all / so quickly.

bought this as a gift for my wife for her macbook air. She loves the way it looks, it really does look like a book or ledger when closed. The quality of the leather is good, it's soft and feels like suede. The interior of the case is padded well (microfiber I think, but feels like suede as well). The zipper is strong, but the leather pull tab on the zipper feels thin and a bit flimsy. If anything breaks or rips on this case it would be the pull tabs on the zipper. It's easy to hold, easy to grip. The macbook air fits tightly, and you have to be careful opening and closing the zipper so you don't scratch the macbook inside. When the case is open with the macbook inside, the back of the zippers come to a stop right where the upper half and the lower half of the macbook come together. Be careful not to open too quickly because if those zippers get caught between the upper and lower halves it could scratch your macbook. My wife is usually very careful with her things, so she doesn't have a problem with the zippers. Overall it's a quality item, overpriced in my opinion but very unique and pretty, my wife has already had great comments from a few people, so she's happy and that makes it worth the price.
