Quality Case for Much Less!
on June 18, 2013
You can't beat the price! I was a bit leery of the $10.99 price (vice the $40 average price of other name brands), but I received the cases today and they are a quality product. Similar to the quality incase cover that I have on my older Macbook Pro. Fits snugly, snaps on easily to stay. These are frosted covers with the silky rubberized feel to them. They do not interfere with the opening or closing of the Macbook. The sides are exposed where the ports are located. The sides are protected towards the front of the Macbook. There are two rows of air vents on the bottom cover for the front and rear portions of the Macbook. They are very light adding minimal extra weight. There are four distinct pads on the bottom at each corner. They function well; I'm not sure of their durability over the long-term. The pads seem to be made of the same soft material as kitchen cabinet bumpers (from lack of a better description). I bought two covers, different colors to change out once and awhile; still 50% cheaper than a single cover for most other brands. I don't know how the covers will hold up against scratches at this point, but they seem no less durable than the incase or speck cases that I have had. Then again, I'm only concerned about protecting the Macbook against scratches; I don't care if the case is scratched.
UPDATE In January 2015. Three of the four soft pads on the bottom of the case have torn off, but the case continues to function perfectly. The soft pads had a ring of tough plastic surrounding them which continue to support the case. I remain 100% satisfied with this case.
UPDATE in April 2015. I dropped my computer bag. The left front corner of the bottom piece cracked, but protected the computer. This case has taken a lot of punishment. There are dozens of small scratches on it, however, they are difficult to see because the cover is opaque. You can only see the scratches where the light appears through the apple logo on the computer cover. I am ordering another cover today.
UPDATE in May 2015. My replacement case arrived. The four bottom soft foot pads have been replaced by larger (diameter) hard, black rubber pads. Appear to be very durable. They definitely inhibit the case sliding around on table tops! Very nice improvement.
