- Great product, fast delivery!
I'm very happy with my case for my Macbook. I was very happy about the price, and delivery was very fast. the case was easy to put on and it's very sturdy. Now my Macbook is much safer while in my backpack when I'm going around campus! Thanks for great service....more info
- Can't remove it!
I just got this and attached it with no problem. But when I tried to remove it to change batteries, I can't, not without feeling like I'll break apart my computer or the plastic cover. I've tried moving the tabs, but this thing seems really stuck! Anyone have the same problems? Suggestions? Thanks
- Doesn't fit all 13" macbooks
this product, unlike it's advertisement claims, does not fit all versions of 13" macbooks. the bottom was much too large and plastic made obnoxious noises every time i opened my laptop. the plastic holes cover most of the power, and usb inputs so it is virtually impossible to connect any plugs to the latest version of macbook. within two days of owning this product during airport travel (which isn't particularly grimy the way that camping or road tripping would be) dirt got in between the laptop and cover and scratched the computer. if you have the new "green" version of macbook i would strongly advise against purchasing this product....more info
- TERRIBLE BUY
I got my brand new white macbook and I wanted it to be protected from wear and tear. I bought the Speck case, thinking it would help protect my laptop, but it definitely did a lot more damage than protection.
Before buying, I thought it was expensive, but figured it was worth it. I was SO wrong! This case is a piece of junk. Like other users, the rubber feet fell off, which left nasty sticky stuff on the plastic which accumulated dust, hair, and dirt. Disgusting. Also, the dirt that got between the case and my laptop scratched it up. When I first put the case on, I thought it looked cool. It scratches so easily that now I just want to rip the thing off, which is nearly impossible. So far, I've only been able to get the bottom off, and I'm scared I will hurt my computer trying to get the top off. This product is a complete rip-off; it was probably made in some foreign country and is worth a couple bucks, though it is sold for nearly $50.
Take my advice: DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!...more info
- mac skin
this product turned out way better than expected.
It installs quick and easy and looks like the laptop came that color....more info
I really love my macbook cover. It protects my macbook very well. The only downfall is it gets scratched really easy and somehow gets weird scratches underneath the cover, which made me think that there was big scratches on my actual macbook, but there weren't. I would recommend this item as it protects and makes your macbook more fashionable! ...more info
- Best Item for your Investment
I actually bought this item for friend for Christmas. We both have a MacBook and I had ordered a pink one for mine this past summer, I absolutely love it! Its great because it keeps your computer safe and you don't have to be worried when its in your backpack and hauling to classes, home, and work. Keeps from getting it scratched, dropping up, and any other harsh things. I do recommend the keyboard skin too. ...more info
- See Thru Case for Mac
Excellent design. The case fits very well and is quite durable. It has all the accessibility to the drives, ports and provides sufficient amount of cooling vents for the processor and power circuitry. I highly recommend this product for the 13" Macbook....more info
- It scratched my WHITE macbook! Please help!
So I recently purchased a new WHITE 13.3 MacBook and purchased this clear case so I my new baby would be protected from dust, hair, oil etc. Well, it has been a nightmare ever since. Not only is it kind of a pain because once you put it on, you can see dust/dirt on your unit collect in it after a few days, but when I removed it to clean it, I saw it scratched up the sides and back of my computer. You have to use a credit card to remove it off the top and bottom of the computer because it is such a tight fit. So basically I have some protection for my computer but now my pretty new MacBook has ugly gray/black scratches on it. I read that other people have had the same thing happen to them. What were you able to do it fix it? I have tried wiping the scratches down with a wet cloth but nothing. I am so depressed. :(...more info
- Decent, but not Incredible.
LIke others, my experience with the Speck SeeThru has been mixed. I only had it for a brief time, and I found it to be a little ugly, and the protection it provided was questionable. I'm sure it protected against scratches and minor bumps, but it also seemed unnecessary and a little unwieldy. Ultimately, what made me give it up and resell it was the price- I personally cannot justify this price for something that seems to be primarily for looks. My MacBook is pretty enough without it.
If they made it in solid black, I'd reconsider the Speck SeeThru (though I guess it wouldn't be "seethru" then, would it?)
Get this if you want to have a unique-looking MacBook. if you're looking for scratch protection, though, I suggest Best Skins Ever or Invisible Shield. ...more info
- Hard case
Nice to give your laptop a special look.
Boutht it for my daughter. They don't uses books anymore omn school.
But very expensive.
And now I get a extra bill from the FedEx (???) Strange....more info
- great cover for college! WORTH IT!
This summer, I purchased a macbook for college. As a college student, a macbook was not cheap. I wanted to make sure i kept my laptop in the best shape possible. Thats when I found this Hard Case. I thought the color was cool and in the long run, be worth the money. I am very happy I bought this cover. The cover protects my laptop from scratches and little dings and it looks cooler than just the white cover! I would absolutely recommend this cover (esp. for college kids) to people...its worth the money! ...more info
- Great price online, silly price in stores.
What can you say about a laptop cover? It fits, it comes with a wipe to keep it clean. It's simple to use and I've no complaints. I also have a keyboard cover so I feel safer when using this in public and semi public places. Less likely to be missed because its bright color and while it will not completely protect myself from a full out spill as the back is still "open" I feel safer with it on. ...more info
- LOVE IT
I purchased the Speck cover for my macbook and love it. It was easy to put on. I get lots of comments about how nice it looks. I would highly recommend this to anyone with a macbook!!!...more info
- Does Not Fit
This product does NOT fit the MacBook! The slots are wrong and no way fits the MacBook so be careful upon purchasing this hard case....more info
- I love it.
I purchased the orange speck case for the 13in Macbook.I love the color. I love how it fits on the notebook-it snaps on perfectly and stays snug. Other cases similar to this I have purchased and tried also and none have pleased me as this one has. I know it is protected from outer damage. It does not protect the inside face of course. However, I will highly recommended this product!!...more info
- looks great, but . . .
purchased the speck orange see-thru shell during the first year for my macbook 13" after seeing my teaching assistant's red one. while i love the color and the way the apple logo shines through, after a short while (don't remember how long), i noticed what appeared to be dust marks on the inside of the shell, both top and bottom. after removing the shell i discovered those "dust marks" weren't! they were/are SCRATCH marks, the exact same thing i bought the shell to prevent! apparently the result of getting dust trapped between the shell and the case that became permanent marks over time from the micro-movements of the laptop inside the shell. unfortunately, i didn't read many reviews before buying it, but quickly discovered after seeing the SCRATCH marks that this is an outcome that has been reviewed unfavorably by others.
since it was too late to do anything about it, i snapped the shell back on and started searching for another protective covering to camouflage the scratches caused by the speck shell . . . in retrospect, if i'd read the unfavorable reviews, i probably would have gotten something like the zagg invisi-shield to put on the computer case BEFORE using the speck shell, just to maintain the look. now i'm just about ready to spring for either a macally shell or the other, rubberized shell, even tho the colors are less attractive to me.
one more thing: the heat build-up using the plastic shell seems excessive to me (too warm to rest on an unprotected lap for more than 2 minutes), although i am not aware of having experienced any undesirable malfunctions that resulted from it. would have given it 1 star, but bumped it up to 2 stars because it really did look good - before the scratches showed up....more info
- The cover is not that great
When i first got the cover and had it on my macbook it was fine and I loved it. However, when I took the cover off I noticed that the plastic around the edges of my laptop were starting to crack. I think it was from the pressure the case exerted on the laptop. The seller was awesome. I got the product within the estimated shipping dates and was in perfect condition, I would not recommend this product but I would recommend this seller. ...more info
- its ok
i received on time...but the case its not the same that the pic shows...it doesnt have the apple frame...so it was dissapointing.....more info
- laptop cover
This is a great product, i feel a lot more secure knowing my computer is protected. The only caution i would give is that since it is a clear case I can still see scratches from before i got the cover so i think a colored case may have been nicer...more info
i wanted to protect my mac from the obvious scratches the soft outercasing would get, so i bought a speck case. BAD IDEA. this thing scratched up my macbook so bad. the case itself also gets really scratched and nasty really easily. the rubber feet fell off of the bottom of the case, and this case makes my macbook so much heavier and bulkier for some reason. you're better off just buying a large decal to put over the casing to protect your computer from scratches, and tote it in a neoprene sleeve....more info
- not for the new aluminum mac
I got the new mac and I wanted a fun protective case (already bought an Incase that I happy with); it doesn't fit the new 13 inch mac (aluminum); misleading advertising when says "fits all"...more info
- GREAT FOR DJS
Great for everybody, but better for djs who work in nightclubs or any other gigs. Is great to stand out from other djs and keeps it clean from finger prints. And for everybody else thats say it scratches my computer, well if u remove it quickly is going to scratch it, now i have remove this cover of a few times now and no scratches is all about patients. ...more info
- The best hard case available
This is a perfect fit for the 13" Macbook, you can apply this and still put it into a sleeve easily. This prevents scratches on the case which is really important....more info
- a good buy
Overall a great tool to keep your MacBook from getting scratched. I love the color options because it makes my Book unique. My only problem is making sure that it is secured in every corner. ...more info
- Good for what it is
I bought this case a few months after I bought my computer because I wanted to save my mac from getting scratched up. For that the case does it's job. I really like the color it gives my white macbook. The only negative thing is that there are parts of the case that seem a little flimsy, like they could break if they weren't on the laptop. That's not a big deal, just keep the case on the computer. I only wish I'd bought it earlier to protect my mac from scratches....more info
- Definitely worth the money
So, for those of you who say your cover scratched your Macbook...I have absolutely NO idea how that happened. I take my cover off once a month or so to clean the interior, because fuzz and dust can get through some of the edges, especially becasue I live in a dorm. It IS vitally important that you clean off your laptop with the cloth provided (which, incidentally, also works wonders for your screen) before placing the cover on. Again, I haven't had problems in that area.
I find that this cover fits well and looks extremely sleek. No worries about slipping or sliding--the cover locks down tightly to prevent any of that. I carry my computer around all the time in my backpack, and the cover stays on tight. It will not protect your Macbook against impact, but my cover has already absorbed tons of scratches from daily use that would otherwise be on the pearly white cover. I would assume it would also buy you another 10 seconds or so should you spill something on your laptop, but it is not waterproof, either.
Again, I can't emphasize enough how good the cover looks on your Mac. Macs are meant to be streamlined, so why buy a bulky cover that masks the wonderful design of the computer? C'mon, Mac owners are proud folk. Why hide your lovely purchase? This cover lets your Apple logo shine through, and maintains the design integrity of the laptop. It comes in fabulous colors which really pop against the white background it's put against.
The only drawbacks I've found are these: the cover must be removed for cleaning every once in a while and the Speck cover itself is fairly easy to scratch. I've had my cover for about a month and it's pretty scratced up already. I plan on replacing the cover again in about six months, but it's an expense I'm willing to make to keep my laptop (which I plan on having for at least five years) in tip-top condition. ...more info
- great product-- looks good, does its job
my white macbook picked up scratches in its first two days with me, even with tender treatment and without leaving the house. a cover like this one is a must. my speck cover snapped on easily and doesn't impede the computer's function in any way. fortunately i haven't dropped it (yet) so i can't speak to impact protection, but i have read several other reviews that said the speck cover protected a hard fall onto asphalt and similar surfaces.
and the orange looks fabulous. it gets lots of comments. ...more info
- I'm buying a few more!!!
I'm the IT manager of an insurance company. We have almost 10 MacBooks for our road warriors, including me. I bought two of these to test. I tested one myself, and I've had it for a year.
Before this, I tried everything in airports to get my MacBook in and out of security fast, and this beats everything by a mile. No slipping the Mac in and out, even when you want to use it. Just open it up and start working.
My concern when I bought it was if it added so much bulk to the Mac it was no longer miniscule. It did not. It's not noticeable. And it's fantastic protection.
As for scratching - I've had the Speck shell off a couple times for upgrades and it's difficult enough that it will not come off inadvertently, but easy enough when you want to do an upgrade. I haven't noticed any scratches on my black 13" MacBook, and I'm pretty critical.
After reading about the problems with scratching in these reviews, I'm thinking to try a piece of clear plastic food wrap (Saran Wrap) between the Speck and the MacBook. That's the first thing I thought of.
Before I got the Speck cases, several of my road warriors dropped their Macs off the top of cars and one knocked it off their bed. All of them destroyed the shell of the computer (very expensive repairs for two, totaled the third). No one has dropped a Mac since I got the cases, but they've all learned to be careful. If they did drop it, I think it would crack the $40 Speck case but protect the computer.
I can't say enough great things about this case. A few minor scratches will happen no matter what case you have (slipping it in and out of neoprene will probably do the same thing), but a drop of a computer or something dropping on it will negate the worry of a few hard to see scratches.
And talk about convenient. Like I said, just take the computer out open it up to start work. No other case to take it in and out of. And no matter where it is, it's protected at all times. I can't stress this enough. What if you take it out of it's nice neoprene case and put it on the tray table of an airplane and someone knocks it off? Your neoprene case is in the overhead (or under foot), but with the Speck, it's protected.
I'm buying one for every MacBook we have.
I got this product last month , and it is very gud for the mac books....more info
- pretty good
