Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: iPearl mCover Hard Shell Case with FREE keyboard cover for 15-inch Model A1398 MacBook Pro (with 15.4-inch Retina Display) - CLEAR (Personal Computers)
This 20 buck piece of trash definitely decreases the form factor of the Macbook Pro Retina. This aesthetic issue is tolerable but what was not was the fact that the hard plastic tabs on the bottem piece are uncomfortably hard and sharp so they did into your wrists when you type. After using this for about 20 minutes I decided to try to remove it. Here is where the fun started. There is no easy way to take off this cover. Even being gentle and working on the tabs, I noticed that it was actually pulling apart the metal panes of my MacBook! This cheap junk almost ruined my $2K computer, Major buyers remorse. Stay away

I agree 100%... my $2000 laptop deserves better. I cannot believe I tried to save money by ordering this garbage.

This is what's really odd about Amazon reviews. I just got one of these and i like it just fine.

The plastic clips don't dig into the heels of your palms and wrists? Odd. It hurts me. I'm done. Sending it back.

I'm very pleased with my case. I spent three times more for my last MBP. That one was shiny and became all scratched up. THIS shell is a brushed plastic which doesn't show scratches nearly as easily. I have no problem with the edges scratching my palms. Perhaps you got a lemon. Mine is excellent.

Hmm, that's odd because mine does not dig into my wrists at all. I can honestly say I love this case.
