UPDATE: 8/24/2012 - I'm actually removing one star from my rating due to an issue that I have experienced using this hard shell case on my new MacBook Pro. Several other people have reported this issue to me as well. With this new tweaked design of the iPearl mCover, I have noticed that the two tabs on the bottom rear hard shell actually rub against the black plastic piece which is part of the assembly of the top cover of the MacBook Pro. When you slowly open the lid of your comptuer while looking at the tabs, you can clearly see them hitting the black piece as it slides into the case of the MacBook Pro. When the lid of the computer is opened or closed, the two tabs rub against the black piece of the top lid causing either a squeak or clicking sound. This by itself is more of a nuisance rather than a huge problem. However when you go into a quiet room or office meeting and open your MacBook Pro, you may hear this squeak or click. I have a previous version of this mCover and it has a slightly different tab design and that older model does not squeak or click. So I guess what I'm saying is that you may also experience this. But not everyone does. Seems to be a tolerance issue either with the hard shell itself or the MacBook Pro or both.

--------

This is the third iPearl mCover hard shell case that I have purchased. Previously I had purchased a black mCover as well as a blue one.

This case is the aqua color and it might be my favorite color so far. It is also nice to see that iPearl is still improving the already excellent mCover case.

The previous version of the case that I own has two large open areas on the bottom piece of the cover. These open areas leave a good portion of the bottom of the MacBook Pro exposed to potential scratching.

I just bought a new Macbook Pro 13" and wanted to make sure I had a protective case for it before it even arrived. I ordered this case online (in the Aqua color) and am very happy with it. It looks great, goes on easily, and most of all, I really love the little feet at the bottom to keep it angled up right and help keep it cool.

I ordered this for my MacBook Pro 13" (early 2011 model). My goal was simply to prevent scratching my laptop when sliding it in and out of my backpack on a daily basis.

PROS - nice color (Aqua), doesn't add any noticeable weight to laptop, and designed to hook on securely

(see update) CONS - there are 6 tabs that hold the bottom cover in place, 2 of which are located just below the hinge between laptop body and screen. Due to their angle, these 2 tabs scratch the hinge as you open and close the screen causing a noticeable squeaking sound.

Not sure if I just got a defective cover.

---UPDATE (12/25/2011)---
After the original review, I was quickly contacted and sent a replacement directly by iPearl. The original case was in fact defective

With the new case -
1) the 2 tabs no longer come into contact with the screen, therefore no scratching
2) (which i didn't even notice was missing on the original) there are supposed to be 2 rubber feet on the bottom cover that prevent unwanted sliding of the laptop

I've now been using this case for over a month now, and it has done a pretty good job protecting my laptop.

the mCover Hard Shell case is really good. it protects the computer from dirt but also from it getting hit by accident. Even when you drop it the cover protects it and with the cover on, the damage will be no were near the level it would have been if the hard shell cover wasn't on. the hard shell is also very practical. it doesn't overlap any ports on either side of the computer and it covers the whole external body of the mac. this product also has two little stand on the far side in order for it to be tilted a little bit and trust me this helps.i definitely recommend this produt

I got this for my 21 year old daughter. She's had her MacBook Pro for about 2 and a half years, but it's like a "new baby" still for her. She keeps it pristine and is fanatical about people touching it - LOL - it looks and IS good as new... so... when it got a small nick in the top the other day she was upset. Okay, so maybe she is a little obsessive about her computer :) but I thought she would like to have a cover for it, finally, so I went online to look for one. This one is SO "her color" (GORGEOUS teal blue), looks GREAT on the computer (she was worried that it would block the apple logo, but it doesn't - it actually accentuates it), it's easy to snap on, doesn't add bulk to the computer so it still fits perfectly into her neoprene sleeve. In short, it's just great. A really fun and satisfying purchase - a great price - does what it should (protects) and looks amazing.

I bought this iPearl cover for my new MacBook Pro. LOVE IT! Great value, great color, quality product. I bought my daughter a much more expensive Speck brand for her laptop and though it's also nice, I wouldn't spend the extra money if I had it to do over.

This cover works really well, goes on easily, has a great color, and you can still see all of my stickers that I had on the front easily. It super easy to snap on, and the little feet for keeping it cool are great. It's a great product for protecting your laptop, hard shell is the way to go! :)
