UPDATED 8/2012: I've used this case on my air just about every day for the past 16 months. I've never stopped loving it and am back here, in fact, to get a new one. The reason? It has stretched out a bit in the past couple months, so I find myself constantly tucking the air back in so that the cover stays put. The upside to that is that after a couple months it did shut tight. I just wish it would have stopped there! I'll look around to see if there is anything like it, but most likely I'll get another. I really do love it.
UPDATED AGAIN 11/2014: I replaced my original case (shown above) with the red version. My original held up for what I consider to be a very reasonable amount of time (after having to stitch the elastic to help it fit when it stretched out as mentioned above), though it did look pretty shabby. My red case has been good for several months now. It only cost $10 (down from the original $40), so my expectations are much lower. However, I have bought two of these for my daughter and for some reason, the material used has flaked off -- on both of the cases! My guess is that there is some type of reaction with a lotion or perfume she is using. But when the replacement did it within hours of putting it on... I don't know.Read more ›
Because it prevents the MB Air from completely closing, if pressure is placed on top of the MacBook (as would happen in a packed briefcase or if laid flat with anything on top of it) the screen section bows in towards the empty space created by the case. As the screen is very thin there's a clear potential to crack it. What Hard Candy should have done is use a much thinner material or fabric on the inside sleeve edge so that the computer can close more completely. Another small issue is the leather (or whatever it is) smells quite a bit, but my hope is that will dissipate over time.
If I had to do it over again, I'd probably get something different.
I got this case because I use my laptop for note taking in class and I needed something that gave the laptop protection from stuff in my backpack without having to deal with carrying a second pouch. The case looked sharp when I got it but after 15 months of frequent use the thing is just ragged. It slips off the laptop about once a week and the rubber has come off of 40% of the edges. I reinforced the corners with duct tape and that has held up moderately well; otherwise I would have lost it 6 months ago. It also attracts dirt and dander very well and is not easily cleaned. If your laptop spends most of its time in your house this case will be fine. However, if you subject it to regular friction, it wears out fast.
Suggestion: If they could come up with something that has reinforced corners and a more durable material for the edges this would be a 5 star product. In the meantime consider using black duct tape on the edges and corners.

However, after a week of using this the fake suede has started to flake right off.
Even with this cheapness, I'd still heartily recommend this over ANY "sleeve" style case which does NOT provide any in-use drop/corner protection, or any of the regular snap-on (Speck, etc.) style cases which provide only minimal drop/corner protection.
If you are a professional and appearances are important, I would strongly suggest SKIPPING this case upgrading to a $120+ Artfire genuine leather case, but if you don't care if the fake suede develops "bald spots", then this is certainly better than nothing for the $10 price, and better than the $40-$50 snap-on cases for sure.
If you don't mind tacky and passé, a Twelve South in-use case provides better protection, but for $80 I'd recommend something classier for just a little bit more.
