My order arrived this afternoon, and I was really eager to put this cover on my new MacBook Air (A1466). The color was great and I loved the texture. The bottom was a tight, but perfect and secure fit, and didn't take too terribly much effort to install. However, the top was a whole different story. With a fair amount of work, I did get the clips snapped on tightly in the short direction - front to back, and with quite a substantial amount of effort, I got two of the side to side clips properly on and a third "almost" there but not feeling as if it were seated quite right. Try as I might - and I did so for at least 15 minutes and ended up badly hurting my thumb in the process - I simply could not even get the fourth clip to fit over the edge, and I was really worried I was going to damage my laptop, too. Had I succeeded in installing it, I'd have been giving this case a glowing 5 star review, as I really liked it a lot, and trust me, it wasn't going to go anywhere with it being as tight as it was. Prying it back off even partially installed took some effort! (I wonder if the buyer who said it slips off really didn't have the clips completely engaged, as it can be difficult to see?) I enjoyed looking at what might have been for awhile before repacking it for return. I'm terribly disappointed this just didn't quite fit my new toy. :o( This product needs just a slight tweaking to be an excellent choice. Until then, I can't recommend it.
