    I just got the case crown case in today from amazon its pretty nice, I DO like that it finally gives me full protection all around and I'm not afraid to place it anywhere. Previous to this I was using a incase sleeve and still would be hesitant to put it anywhere.


    For those of you using this case do you permanently leave it in here? I like it but it does give a tad bit bulk. Wondering what setup I should go with considering I am looking at getting an incase backpack as well. So that being said should I keep this and the backpack or a clear speck case and the backpack?

    I wish there was a cut for the apple logo to light up now THAT would be badass

    That little tab "thingy" looks like it would interfere with your use of the trackpad. Wish there were a way to tuck that away. It just looks like it would be in the way, always sticking up like that.

    I feel the same way. I did install the Speck hard case and gotta say I am impressed how thin and unobtrusive it is, but nothing is as beautiful as a naked MBA (well, we are talking laptops here... :D )

    I've got a BookBook Case by Twelfth South from Amazon, too. I like it so much as it's ultimately vintage feeling of touch.

    just put on the clear speck and DAMN it looks so much sexier and you can see the slim look of the air way better!!!! GODDD I am so indecisive NOW I'm debating keeping the speck or just getting an invisible shield or or wrapsol wrap to lose some more weight!!! but this speck isn't as bad as the one on my 13 pro this seems lighter

    Isn't it? What color did you get? I got the Satin and my wife got the Red (Raspberry?). Its actually pretty slick. The MBA definitely looks better naked, but I feel a lot better carrying it around with the Speck case. I can still fit it inside my Bohdi or Knomo leather cases (the Knomo is a bit tight but it fits) for carrying inside my briefcase, but I probably don't need to use those cases anymore. I ordered a Booq Vyper so I can cary the charger, cables, and external HD with all my movies. I think it all won't fit but I am going to give it a shot.

    Decisions decisions! :D

    For the first time since I began buying Macbooks in 2007, I am skipping the Speck case and just leaving my MBA naked and sticking it in a be.ez LaRobe sleeve.

    I purchased the Speck Clear just to try it out and there seems to be something wrong with it as the back portion does not permit the lower part of the top cover to clear when open.

    This could just be a defective one but it has turned me off of Speck for good, especially after speaking to their friendly. but ineffective, customer service.

    I wish Incase offered its cases for the 17" MacBook Pro.

    The CaseCrown case is great. Not only does it offer protection, it looks really nice. Also, on the bottom, it has a flap that opens to ventilate the laptop, and for typing, it props it up for a nice angle. In addition, you can flip the cover over and it gives additional padding, especially for on the lap use. As far as the securing flap, you can bend it so that it isn't really in the way. Lastly, even though it is a case, you can easily remove it.

    Doesthis case make the MBA hotter? Are the vents sufficient?

    Using this case, my MBA has not gotten any hotter. Occasionally, the air, under load, will get warm. However, the vast majority of the time, it is neither hot nor warm. Also, I have a Moshi keyboard protector. With both of these on my air, it is rarely hot. If you push your air, whether cased or not, it will get warm. As I said previously, the flap underneath really helps with heat dissipation.

    Since, with prior airs, I remember the hinge problems and don't keep the top attached. For me, I just don't want to put any load on the lid. With the cover unattached, it also, especially for those who want to show off their airs, shows the Apple logo. At present, my hinge is strong. I want to keep it that way.
