Nice fit and will protect your retina MBP, if you're not into aesthetics...
on August 21, 2012
I purchased the frosty matte finish i-Blason shell case cover for my retina MBP. I found that it fits the retina MBP very well and from my observations, will protect this device from scratches and minor bumps. The only drawback that I found with this case is that through normal every day handling, there is a tendency for smudges to really stick out on this case. While I fully expect fingerprints and what not to show up on this case from every day use, I did not count on very, very obvious smudges that make the case look like it's frosty matte finish is rubbing off. It takes a damp/wet cloth to remove the obvious smudges and fingerprints although they will show up again the next time you pick up your rMBP.
Don't get me wrong, this case serves it's purpose well in providing protection for my retina MBP, but it's a shame that it can't look good at the same time (unless you wear gloves). If you don't particularly care for aesthetics and aren't bothered by the kind of smudges and fingerprints that can be seen on this thing from a mile away, you'll be real happy with this case. For me, I am getting tired of having to clean the smudges off everytime I use my rMBP. I am definitely going to get something better when it becomes available.
