    What is the best hard case for a 2015 15" rMBP that covers the top and bottom and all edges and provides decent ventilation? I have a Speck hard case on my late 2011 15" rMBP, it's okay however it's very stiff. Some of the tabs have broken off and it seems to allow dirt to get between the case and the aluminum body. Is a rubber case the best option?

    I've had a Speck for years on my 2008, but I have read that their current quality control is crappy and the tabs break off easily. Since the more expensive one isn't better I'm just getting a cheap one.

    I choose the rubberized one because it hides scratches better than the smooth transparent and it is easier to grip in one hand. FWIW, even when all the tabs were intact dirt still got in there; I just accept that it will be scratched so I keep a hard case on it.

    I have dropped mine once or twice on pavement and hardwood floors, landing on the corner, and the laptop remains fine.

    I had a speck on my old cMBP, didn't like it too much. So much so that I don't even use a hard case at all on rMBP.

    I heard from several people and reviews that the Moshi and Power Support Air Jacket are more expensive but much better in quality than Speck.

    Is there any reason why this is a bad choice: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B008NSH446/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?qid=1432671293&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX110_SY165_QL70&keywords=ipearl+macbook+pro+15&dpPl=1&dpID=41jPkvTFEyL&ref=plSrch

    The mosh is by far better than the speck. I will never go back.
