Ever since airport security put a hairline scratch on the underside of my baby, I have searched frantically for a case that would A) Preserve the look of my laptop, B) Keep it comfortable to have it on my lap, C) Allow it to still fit inside my neoprene sleeve or messenger bag, D) Leave all my ports fully-functional, and E) Protect it from those elements who wish it harm. This impressive laundry list is checked off entirely by the Speck clear case!

It didn't add any perceptible bulk, it left my computer looking as much like a bare Macbook as any case can, protects it adequately from anything other than a steep fall, and leaves even my Magsafe power port fully functional (the plug can be oriented either way while in the case! Yay!). It does stick to one's thighs slightly after a while, but so does the Mac itself (and it becomes too toasty on the bottom to sit on a lap for a while anyway). The case left my hinge action alone, to my delight. Also, it still (miraculously) fits in my tight neoprene sleeve, in part due to being quite a slippery surface. Never again shall the TSA cause harm!.. well, to my computer, anyway. Highly recommend.

I wanted to keep my brand new 17" MacBook clean, safe and unscratched. The options for 15" models are far greater, and I had considered "skins" which offered protection of the top or the bottom. This product supplies protection for both, allowing full functionality and access to all of the ports and drives, revealing the great look of the classic design. It has a nice feel, is very sturdy, comes off easily but stays put as needed. The computer still fits in its sleeve with the case on. It was exactly the solution I sought for this device and I'm very pleased with it.

So I bought my cover for my 17" macbook pro which I just purchased a few weeks ago. With saying this I mean that it is the newest model and yes, this fits like a ring to my finger.

That comment I see often about it not fitting properly into the side of the computer with the USB ports; I guess it varies on the use you give to your laptop.

Yes, with my field in school I should have to carry it atleast once or twice a week to school. However, my intentions are to try to leave it behind because if you have owned any laptops in the past you should know laptops are NOT meant to be carried around. This will diminish the life of the battery because it is constantly moving.

With that said, the cover does what it says it does: It protects it from scratches(Which I am OCD about), and it shields dust and other mites.

However, if you are thinking a piece of plastic will make your computer shatter proof- you are wrong. If it falls, GAME OVER.

Also, I'd like to note that no the computer does not seem bulkier. It is like- almost- putting a penny on the top and in the bottom, that is how thick it is now. In the end, you will prefer that thickness rather than a scratch! trust me!

all in all, I am VERY VERY happy with my purchase and it is the least expensive one I found. I did a very thorough research in book stores, apple, best buy, and even walmart! The difference is beat by atleast 10$ and the shipping and handling was included!

This case is great. It makes the laptop "bulletproof." :) Mine fell of a moving car, and with the additional protection from a foam envelope and bicycle bag, there was no sign of damage. Also, I am a bit rough with my laptops, and this case takes all the beating I can dish out.

The downside is that it is heavy. It is lighter than the laptop itself, but the laptop feels almost twice as heavy with the case on. It could be because of the weight and increased thickness adding up. Especially when holding the laptop by the edge in a vertical position one can really feel the added weight. I did get a 17" laptop however, so weight was never my primary concern. I am happy with the case, but one should know about the added weight when deciding to get one.

I was frustrated at first because the 17 inch MacBookPro is the only size that doesn't have colorful cases for it. I had the black case first, but after that broke (where the dvd drive is), I wanted to try the clear. The nice thing about this one is that it allows me to put fun decals using the apple sign.

I used the decal: Tree MacBook Decal Mac Apple skin sticker

Looks whimsical, and still professional enough to use during my meetings with clients.

This was the second case I purchased for my 17" MacBook Pro. Since Apple has discontinued the 17", this case is a bit hard to find in stock, so the second has been placed in storage in the event the original needs replacing. Overall the case installed easy and tightly. My wife (the user of this computer) is extremely happy with it, and has protected the computer from wear and scratches in the four months of daily use it has been in service.

I have two 17 inch macbook pros and I have one of these on each. They work great and are worth the money. I just wish they came in colors other than clear and black. I realize not that many people get 17", but I do a lot of photoshop work and it would be really cool to have a blue or red one. The product definitely goes the job, though. I carry my macbook pro back and forth to school every day and it has a lot of potential to be scratched up so I'm glad I bought this.
