Simply snap on the lightweight top and bottom pieces to your MacBook, and you'll have a slim but durable outer layer to protect from bumps and scratches. A micro-suede lining stops dirt from getting into the case and scratching surfaces. As with the Grip for iPad, the exterior finish is comfortable to carry and soft to the touch.

I did an awful lot of research on ways to protect my new MBA, and finding a good quality, solid, durable case was paramount. The STM Grip case has fulfilled all my expectations and more. It is comfortable to carry, dissipates heat well, and looks great. I actually was looking for a case that would be a bit more subtle, as I do a lot of work in coffee shops/public places - I hoped that a plain, nondescript cover would deter potential thieves. So far, it's worked!

I've been using it for a month now and it's held up well to scratches. It doesn't smudge much at all, so I don't have to worry about its aesthetic. It installs in a snap (literally), and it fits cleanly. There almost no extra bulk to this case, but it feels incredibly solid. It also snaps off easily if you need to remove it for some reason. I love the microfiber lining on the inside - it prevents dirt/dust from getting between the case and the computer.

I highly recommend this product - as a short summary of all the youtube videos, blog reviews, and product sites on protective cases: this one takes the cake for hardshell cases. Way to be, STM.

Update: This case is $10 less now than when I bought it - an even better deal! Get 'em while they're hot! I'm jealous. I would buy a backup, but I'm confident mine will never break. It's barely shown any wear during the 6 months I've had it!

This case is perfect, everything I could ask for in a case.

Pros:
-It is lightweight and makes my macbook air less slippery (I'm prone to dropping things).
-It stays on tightly and protects my case from scratches.
-I can't really tell if it protects from falls, but I have dropped my computer a few times with this case on and it has not gotten any dents or scratches.
-I was able to remove the case easily when it was partially blocking a port.
-It looks very sleek and professional - you can't even tell that it's a Macbook. This might be a con for some, but I don't like the look of the Apple light, so I appreciate that this case cover's the symbol completely (in fact this is one of the few cases I could find that does this)

Cons:
-The added weight will make your computer shut if it is only slightly open. The hinge on the air can maintain pretty much any angle of openness without a case on, but with this case if you try to leave it open just a sliver, it will fall shut. This isn't a problem for me because I have no reason to leave it at that angle, but someone might care about this.
-This model does cover the additional mic holes on the newest Macbook Air. I should add, though, that I have used mine to skype and google hangout and everyone has been able to hear me just fine.
-You may have difficultly plugging in certain audio cables into the headphone port with this case on. It has only happened to me once, I tried a friend's headphones and the input was so wide that it hit the edge of this case and wouldn't go in all the way. I popped the case off in that corner and then I could get them in all the way. This does not happen with standard headphones, so maybe the input on these headphones was just weirdly shaped.

Overall, this is the best Mac case I've tried. It has everything I want and for a reasonable price.

Very utilitarian, does the job of protecting my MBA from dust and scratches (haven't dropped it so far), and reduces the slipperiness of the metal body. I love the fact that it's lined so dust won't get in between the case and the laptop, as happened with my old MBP which got scratched inside a Speck case. I feel confident my investment is well protected.

However, I would have given it 5 stars if it came in a better range of colours. My laptop is used for business as well, so pink and bright blue were out, but the black is REALLY boring. You're also out of luck if you want to show off that you have an Apple computer, as the case has no window for the logo. Personally I don't care about that, as it does it's job and the anonymity may stop someone wanting to steal my MBA.

UPDATE- January 25th 2014

Having used this case for a few months now, I'd like to add that it could be a little rubberised (it's smooth with a ribbed surface). Even just the little feet/pads please, as it tends to slide on my tilted desk at class (a slow insidious slide that I almost missed before it was too late!).

The case DOES add an appreciable amount to the weight of my MBA and weights the lid so that closes, or opens when used at an angle (like now when I'm lying on my back in bed it starts to close).
I still appreciate the soft lining, my MBA doesn't have a scratch and the cover IS easy to get on and off without damaging either the tabs or the laptop.

The case also shows oily marks, so keep your hands clean to maintain that sleek look.

This case is amazing. I have the latest MBA 13 and the speakers are covered. However, it has NOT impacted my ability to hear through the speakers or any other functionality. My computer is protected and the case is stylish. I'm may order pink as well...but for now, the blue works fine. I love the ridges on the case which keep my MBA from slipping out my hand, and that the case seals out dust and other rude elements. It does pick up fingerprints over time, but you can easily wipe it off.
