The cover was as beautiful as in the picture. It fit my macbook pro 13" perfectly and protects it very well. The gap where the apple is, leaves the computer unprotected at that spot. But it lines up perfectly so it doesn't look awkward and the apple plastic doesn't take scratches. Its also really simple to take off to clean if anything gets in (small dust). I really recommend this item. The keyboard protector was also in great condition and it matched perfectly. It fits well and does not overlap the groove. It is still easy to type and now my computer is protected and looks beautiful.
