Perfect for Newer Model MacBook Air,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: iPearl mCover Hard Shell Cover Case with FREE keyboard cover for 13.3-inch Apple MacBook Air A1369 & A1466 - CLEAR (Personal Computers)
When I purchased my new MacBook Air at the Apple store, I asked specifically for a clear hard shell case for it because the aluminum body of the laptop scratches really easily. I was assured that the case I was buying (for $50!) was going to fit. Did it? OF COURSE NOT. It was for the prior model. So I had to make do with the case that didn't fit to protect the computer, while searching for a hard shell case that would actually fit.
This one is perfect. The clear model has a matte finish to the lid, and from the side it almost looks frosted, but you can see the decals and stickers I have on the lid just fine. It is ridiculously easy to put on and while I was afraid of cracking it while I snapped each corner into place, the case was way more durable than I gave it credit for. It is very, very lightweight, doesn't add much at all to the dimensions of the machine, and it isn't slick or slippery to carry, either. Plus, it has feet. Yup. Flippy feet. I didn't think I would use them, but they tilt the laptop to a very comfortable typing height.
Plus it was much cheaper than the one I purchased at the store. BOO. YAH. It fits exactly right - thank you to mCover for clearly labeling the correct model and compatibility in the title and description of the item so I knew I was getting the right case for my laptop.
