    From the pictures it looks nice, but I wanted to know if any of you have it. I was thinking of buying the Black one. TIA.

    I'm more curious to see how it looks from the inside... is there tabs that hold it in place? Does anyone have pictures?

    I am using the Speck hardcase, smoky black ones
    so far so good, the case is picking up a lot of scratches,
    the MBA is all fine, just like new:cool:

    I read a lot about it getting hot inside the case. Have you noticed that?

    Yea I have the specks case and the reason I don't use it is exactly because of that. The vents line up but there is about 3-5mm of space created by the plastic to the aluminum, which allows for some whirlpooling action... traps hot air and gets things pretty hot. Besides, it doubles the weight and almost doubles the thickness as well. I stuck with the $10 adhesive covering from amazon for the scratches, a sleeve for when I place it in my briefcase, and am just being extremely careful not to drop it...again.

    Curious if anyone has tried removing the MBA's bottom casing to then use the hardcase bottom? Would it run cooler because of more ventilation?

    I have the "smoky" one from when they had that sale a while back, it was posted here.

    I only ended up using it once. you can have mine for $25 shipped if you'd like.
