    :apple: :apple: my buddy has one!! its really nice...puts together very easily no lose spots very tight and secure fit all the way around. VERY GOOD AIR FLOW!!! does not heat up computer much at all.

    I really wanna get one I just don't like the red color. Hopefully Speck will come out with a cool blue color!!

    :D :apple:

    Mine arrived yesterday - very impressed with the shipping speed - only 4 days from the States to the UK!

    Looks great on, feels like its doing its job - very secure feeling and fits into my Brenthaven Edge II sleeve fine. I'm not entirely sure if I've fitted the bottom properly as the front ports (lid button, IR and optical slot) aren't dead centre... they're about 1-2mm out, yet the side ports are fine. I'll try to refit and see if its all down to my over-keeness in fitting it last night!

    It sounds great - i had a case for one of my mobiles based on the same concept, it kept my mobile in absolutely pristine condition but it made my mobile real bulky :(

    Can anyone snap a few shots of what they look like on a Macbook/Pro? I'm still trying to decide between this and the 'sticker' variant.

    I don't mind clips to look at, I'm just looking for the protection.

    I've read that the thickness of the case can affect the angle at which the screen can open, as in the case on the body of the macbook pro and the case on the lcd can interfere with each other effectively reducing the maximum opening angle. Anyone tell me how much?

    In my opinion thesy are horrid. The protection the provide is nice but they are god awful to look at.

    I had mine for 2 days and sent ot back.

    Well.. I read a lot of reviews and decided to order one from Amazon. I figured after reading articles and stories about dents, scratches, etc. with peoples MBP, I want to protect mine.

    I'll let you guys know what I think.

    So far I have the iSkin and keyboard cover to protect the screen, all works well. iSkin is pretty nice.

    I love mine, it looks great on my black macbook and it really protects it. it even fits better in the incase sleeve i got for it (you need all the protection you can get :p). I'll post pics later of it when I have my camera around.

    So I got my Speck case today and all I can say is.. DOH!!! When I open the LCD up it catches on the plastic and make a popping sound. So apparently the case I received isn't a good fit for my laptop.

    NOT avail. for 17" MBP???

    I would have checked it out but they still don't have on for the 17" MBP. They dropped the ball on that one!

    Day two with my Speck case for the MBP

    My first reaction was positive: very easy to fit and actually quite aesthetically pleasing.

    I agree on the point about popping when the lid opens - I'm going to refit it to see if it goes away.

    The extra weight on the lid concerns me a little bit (hopefully I'm just being over-obsessive). Do you think it will adversely affect the MBPs hinges over time?
