UPDATE: 8/24/2012 - I'm actually removing one star from my rating due to an issue that I have experienced using this hard shell case on my new MacBook Pro. Several other people have reported this issue to me as well. With this new tweaked design of the iPearl mCover, I have noticed that the two tabs on the bottom rear hard shell actually rub against the black plastic piece which is part of the assembly of the top cover of the MacBook Pro. When you slowly open the lid of your comptuer while looking at the tabs, you can clearly see them hitting the black piece as it slides into the case of the MacBook Pro. When the lid of the computer is opened or closed, the two tabs rub against the black piece of the top lid causing either a squeak or clicking sound. This by itself is more of a nuisance rather than a huge problem. However when you go into a quiet room or office meeting and open your MacBook Pro, you may hear this squeak or click. I have a previous version of this mCover and it has a slightly different tab design and that older model does not squeak or click. So I guess what I'm saying is that you may also experience this. But not everyone does. Seems to be a tolerance issue either with the hard shell itself or the MacBook Pro or both.

--------

This is the third iPearl mCover hard shell case that I have purchased. Previously I had purchased a black mCover as well as a blue one.

This case is the aqua color and it might be my favorite color so far. It is also nice to see that iPearl is still improving the already excellent mCover case.

The previous version of the case that I own has two large open areas on the bottom piece of the cover. These open areas leave a good portion of the bottom of the MacBook Pro exposed to potential scratching.

I just bought a new Macbook Pro 13" and wanted to make sure I had a protective case for it before it even arrived. I ordered this case online (in the Aqua color) and am very happy with it. It looks great, goes on easily, and most of all, I really love the little feet at the bottom to keep it angled up right and help keep it cool.

the mCover Hard Shell case is really good. it protects the computer from dirt but also from it getting hit by accident. Even when you drop it the cover protects it and with the cover on, the damage will be no were near the level it would have been if the hard shell cover wasn't on. the hard shell is also very practical. it doesn't overlap any ports on either side of the computer and it covers the whole external body of the mac. this product also has two little stand on the far side in order for it to be tilted a little bit and trust me this helps.i definitely recommend this produt

I bought this iPearl cover for my new MacBook Pro. LOVE IT! Great value, great color, quality product. I bought my daughter a much more expensive Speck brand for her laptop and though it's also nice, I wouldn't spend the extra money if I had it to do over.

I ordered this for my MacBook Pro 13" (early 2011 model). My goal was simply to prevent scratching my laptop when sliding it in and out of my backpack on a daily basis.

PROS - nice color (Aqua), doesn't add any noticeable weight to laptop, and designed to hook on securely

(see update) CONS - there are 6 tabs that hold the bottom cover in place, 2 of which are located just below the hinge between laptop body and screen. Due to their angle, these 2 tabs scratch the hinge as you open and close the screen causing a noticeable squeaking sound.

Not sure if I just got a defective cover.

---UPDATE (12/25/2011)---
After the original review, I was quickly contacted and sent a replacement directly by iPearl. The original case was in fact defective

With the new case -
1) the 2 tabs no longer come into contact with the screen, therefore no scratching
2) (which i didn't even notice was missing on the original) there are supposed to be 2 rubber feet on the bottom cover that prevent unwanted sliding of the laptop

I've now been using this case for over a month now, and it has done a pretty good job protecting my laptop.

This item is of good value, compared to many other overly priced items. bought this item from the seller as a present for my girlfriend and she wrote a view on my behalf...

"I got my Macbook just a month ago and was looking for a case to protect it from my numerous coffee cups and crumbs. Plus, the top of my previous computer looked very ugly, because of hundreds of scratches from the books that I use to put on it and just from carrying it around all the time.
The mCover case was a present, and I should say that probably it is one of the most useful presents I have ever gotten. First of all, it does not make the laptop bigger. It is fixed directly to the computer and completely united with the body. On the sides there are special holes for the usb exits and other plugs. If you open the laptop you do not see the case, it does not ruin Macbook's design from the inside.
Another thing I like about this case is that it has little trotters that push the computer from the bottom, so you can lift it up preventing heating of the hard drive granting your MacBook nice and long life. If you are not using them (let's say you sit on the bed) they are easily folded to the bottom of the laptop.
I can say that I am completely satisfied with this present. Nice, bright, lively color, the case fits perfectly, looks very stylish and accurate, and it really protects the computer from all the scratches, liquids and crumbs helping the Macbook to stay pretty and "healthy" for a longer time. And the last, but not the least, are all the admiring "wows" and inquiries you get from your friends. I would say that if you are fancied by good protection, style, and something that would improve upon the design one of these cases is a must have."
