    For the most part, people seem to like the Speck SeeThru case. It's pretty cheap and has pretty good reviews for the most part.

    I don't have much experience with other cases, so someone will have to pitch in there.

    I'm using an Incipio Feather on my MBA 11. I read a few reviews about the Speck cracking which put me off that. A shame because I preferred the Speck colours.

    Best MacBook Case

    I have the mCover by iPearl. It stands apart from the other covers since it has retractable pegs that can prop up the laptop for better heat dissapation and ergonomics.

    I posted a video demonstration of it on YouTube.

    I highly highly highly recommend the Moshi iGlaze shell. I have the clear version on my 13" Air and it is a smooth, good looking case. It fits so well. It's like when Homer kept hearing Flanders say "It feels like nothing at all... nothing at all... nothing at all."

    I dislike the mpearl. The hinges are sloppy, and the feet are adhered with glue and came off quickly. Also, the case likes to seperate from the MBA easily.

    The Moshi is absolutely the best. I have a Speck clear from before I got my Moshi and the Moshi looks and feels 1000% nicer. It is more expensive, but well worth it.

    Also on an 11" Air. :)


    Stands apart... Yuck-yuck-yuck! lol

    I've been using the mPearl for about six months. I haven't had any problems at all and recommend it. I don't use the feet, so I can't comment on those.

    Yeah, the feet got harder and harder to extend and retract. I have to put a LOT of pressure on it to get them to retract. The bottom rubber feet were just adhered with glue, and they came off after only about 3 months. I am glad you had success with it, but I can't recommend it to anyone.
