Having tried both the Speck and Incase offerings in my 15" MacBook Pro, I can provide the following insights:
I believe the fit of the Incase Hardshell case is superior to that of the Speck, which may be due in part to how the rear of the bottom half of each case clips onto the MacBook. The Incase has one long clip that attaches to the underside of the MacBook at the hinge, while the Speck uses only two small clips on either side. The top half of each case fits about the same. Both cases feature 4 small rubber nubs which provide an imperceptible gap between the case and the aluminum surface of the MacBook, preventing any stray particles from grinding between the case and the MacBook causing scratches.
Neither case impedes the MagSafe power input or screen viewing angle. I noticed some other reviews mention that the added weight of the case caused the screen hinge to seem looser, but that was not my experience whatsoever. I could detect no difference in hinge function, and the screen stayed open using both cases even at the most acute screen angle. Note that I used a MacBook with the matte screen option for this comparison.
The underside of the Speck features one small cutout for heat dissipation, while the Incase has dithering across almost half of the bottom of the case. Not only does it look better aesthetically, but I'd imagine the Incase provides superior heat dissipation as well.
The standby light, IR port, and battery indicator are functional / visible on both cases.
In my opinion neither case added inordinate bulk to the MacBook. I carry my MacBook around all day, and I wouldn't hesitate to use either one of these cases.Read more ›
All in all I don't think you'll find a better case for your laptop case. I haven't had the opportunity to try out any other cases but you would be hard pressed to find something better.
thinner than expected.
satin feels great, not plasticy
color is soothing to the eyes.
the apple logo shows through the case.
it doesn't cook,
hardly smiles back
and only hold my hand when i reach out to hold it first...
which are all signs that this case shows no initiative in becoming a human being.
nonetheless, i love its spirit.
There are a couple of issues with the Speck case. First, the Macbook Pro uses the aluminum as a way to dissipate heat. That is why the bottom of the case gets hot. That's also why the MBP is so quiet, because it doesn't need 3-4 fans like a PC laptop. People that complain about the bottom of the MBP getting hot seem to not understand this key concept. On the bottom of the Speck case, you can see prefabbed slots that are there for ventilation. However, only the slots on the left corner are "drilled" all the way through. This makes no sense. Yes, the left back side of the MBP does get hotter, but why have prefabbed holes etched in the plastic, but only have 25% of them actually usable?
Second, the bottom part of the Speck case attaches in 4 places. When you look at your MBP upright, and in use, the Speck will clip onto the front left and right sides next to the palmrest areas. The Speck case also clips at the back right and left corners. That's great and it's fine if you have a 13", but on a 15" when you flip over your MBP and look at the Speck case attached to the MBP there most likely will be "bowing" along the whole backside where the hinge is. Plenty of dust and debris can creep up between the Speck case and the bottom of the MBP. The fit is just not snug.
Incase on the other hand solves both of these problems. Incase has vents that go across the ENTIRE bottom/backside. Therefore the MBP can vent properly.Read more ›
