    Is this the Speck case or a copycat? Either way, great price.

    i have one of the ripoff shells... it's clunky and doesn't stay on right.

    It does say "APPLE MACBOOK PRO 15 inch SEE THRU HARD CASE - CLEAR - CORE DUO VERSION SPECK"

    And the description and item ID match up to what's on Speck's site. So maybe it's legit. For $12.99 and free shipping, I'm inclined to take my chances. Worst case scenario, it ends up in the recycling bin. :rolleyes:

    PLEASE DO POST on how it turns out!!

    Also, is there heat issues to worry about, the aluminum now being 'enclosed'?

    The original Speck case is different than the current design. Apple changed the port layout on the Core 2 Duo machines, so Speck changed their design as well. This appears to be new/old stock, which would expain why it is so cheap. Keep in mind that this will only work with an original Core Duo MBP and not the Core 2 Duo machines.

    Yep.

    From the description it says "Core Duo".

    When the Core 2 Duo came out, they had to modify their case to incorporate the FW800.

    Wow, this is a great find for people looking for a CD case, what a discount! Even though I have one of these cases, I'm still scared to use it.

    Because they know 80% of the time people end up accepting it.
