Works for me! Love the Kickstand!
on April 26, 2011
I bought the iPearl mCover for my 11 inch Macbook Air. It was easy to snap on and stays extremely secure. I have no had any issues with it slipping, popping off, cracking or anything of the sort. I do carry it in my bag along with several file folders filled with papers (I am a high school English teacher), and I don't always remember that it is in my bag. Therefore, sometimes the bag gets tossed into the backseat of the car instead of gently placed, and I haven't had any problems with the cover.
If you're looking more for opportunities to personalize your Macbook Air according to your mood or what color outfit you're wearing that day, the iPearl mCover might prove to be challenging for that. It is quite secure and snug, and it's not easy to take off of the computer if you want to switch covers, or feel the need to wipe the computer down. Removing isn't a snap and takes some maneuvering. While I would like it to be a little easier to remove, I am greatly comforted by the security I have with it, and I feel that makes up for the difficult removal. I'm also very willing to admit there's the possibility I'm just going about removing it the wrong way. If that is so, then directions would be appreciated.
My favorite feature is the kickstand, which has also garnered envy from some of my colleagues. The kickstand definitely provides a nice angle of placement for the keyboard and even the screen, so I feel much more comfortable and as if I'm working at a more natural angle than without the kickstand to be honest. Apple might want to consider integrating a kickstand feature to the Air. I also greatly appreciate the keyboard cover; I am definitely guilty of the keys getting dirty with dust and crumbs, compounded by the fact that I don't clean it as often as I should. So it has helped me keep the keyboard good as new, especially since it fits the keyboard nearly perfectly and it doesn't slip or bulge.
In conclusion, if you're someone who definitely gets a lot of use out of your expensive Macbook Air, aren't necessarily the best laptop caretaker, and need a cover that looks nice, but is also secure and functional, the iPearl mCover is definitely a good choice for you. I'm definitely thinking of purchasing another one.
