Looking at a Speck Satin case for my new (to me) 17" Macbook Pro

Hey all, I've finally done it - I bought a Mac. I still haven't heard the end of it from my wife, lol.

Anywho, I wanted to protect the darn thing, so I picked up a Speck 17" MBP Satin Black SeeThru.

I'm going to install it later, as I still want to open up the Macbook and take care of the notorious heatsink compound issues.

Youtube video if you're interested:

Tell me what you think of it. I bought a Moshi iGlaze a couple of days ago and it's already developed a crack. I'm less than impressed and probably going to RMA it for something different.

I just sold my 2011 MBP 17

I have a Speck clear shell I do not need and a like new Incase sling sleeve. PM me if you are interested in either one. Cheers, Mark.

So far, I love it. I'll try to do monthly updates on how it lasts, just for the information factor!

Also have to say... I'm liking my 17" Macbook Pro thus far.
