    Hi folks,

    I have the orange Speck SeeThru on MBA 11". It's absolutely stuck on there, and the tabs holding it won't budge.

    How on earth do I remove the top lid?! :eek:

    lift from the two sides of the tabs not the tab itself. It's easier if you have nails. It will come off with some force, no need to fear of it damaging the air.

    In addition to approaching from the back, that did the trick.... Thanks!!

    I have the same cases, although clear on my MBP and MBA, I find if you start on one side and apply a little force, the case comes loose. They are made to stay on though.

    I clean them once a month, but they seem to keep the dirt off fine.
