    At Speck's Website, there are a number of cases for the computer, but I'm not sure which one to get.

    I really need a case that is thin and light and acts more as a scratch protector than a bump protector (I have a satchel-type bag as well).

    Do any of you have experience with Speck's line (if so, what does the "Satin" models feel like?) or do you have another brand that you like a lot??

    Cheers!

    Leo Laporte uses an Incipio feather case for his Air and the Retina model has recently come out. I'm looking into getting one myself.

    I am went for the Moshi iglaze pro 15r. It is a perfect fit for my rMBP.

    I picked up a clean Speck smartshell? case for my 15R.

    The bottom piece fits fine but the shell around the top fits WAY to snug. It is near impossible to take off and You have to force stretch it on.

    Will be buying a Skin whenever i get around to it.

    Power support has some of the best precision when it comes to cases as we seen from their iPhone 5 line up.

    The reviews usually go for the Moshi one instead of Speck's.

    I'd go for Power Support or Moshi. Speck's quality is not that great.

    Get the SeeThru or SmartShell by Speck.
    I have the SeeThru and they are extremely good.
    No damage on my MBP what so ever.
    In fact it saved it from several scratches and dents.

    ----------

    Can you get that in the US?
    I got mine for the MBA when I was over in Japan but never seen it over here...

    No US sellers are even aware that this product even exists lol. This case was just made available by powersupport japan a few days ago. Judging from the pictures, this case looks like it has better proportions than the speck while being a little slimmer too. I could be wrong however.

    How's the Moshi iGlaze working out for you? Has it caused any damage to the rMBP?

    No as of now it is still a perfect match. I am traveling a lot and remove the hard case frequently no issue at all.
