    Hello,
    There are many threads about incase but don't see one for speck. I have incase, well, it added too much weight & size. I'm thinking about getting speck.
    Honestly, I don't want to put on any case, I like the clean white look but eventually it'll look ugly with visible scratches.
    Anyone with experience with this brand?
    Thanks.

    I have one of the Speck cases for my white macbook. The 2 pieces each fit perfectly with all ports and vents exposed.

    The only bad thing is you can't get the damn things off unless you have 4 hands and 3 feet. They recommend you do this every couple of weeks and wipe your macbook clean as the case allows dirt and grime through the vents/crevices which can somehow scratch the macbook. Strange instructions if you ask me because I thought you put one of these things on to prevent the very thing it causes.

    As for me.... I don't intend to remove the casing (I tried once but gave up for fear of breaking it).

    Besides, I only got the thing to change its color because my macbook was a distraction around the conference table among all the Lenovo's, Dells and HP's. :D

    I use the the little black cloth that came with the MB, wrapped a few layers around the credit card and slide my incase open, with strength :), the cloth is ripped but no scratches.
    At least I have the "laptop lift" under to drag around worried less.
    $12.99 http://www.laptoplifts.com/
    I just use the 4 small ones on the corner.
    Well, no case then.
