    Hey all,
    I recently picked up a new MBP and was thinking of "protecting" it a bit as well as making it look a bit different... and on ebay i found this...
    i wrote to the guy and he tells me its for the MB but it should work with the MBP aluminum, he of course wants to make a sale so cant totally be trusted... what do you guys think?

    Worth it or not?

    Thanks!

    no, it won't fit. The 13" MBP is thinner, and has different curves to the MacBooks.

    Yep, thats what i figured as i have them both side by side but his response gave me doubts... thought maybe it was some type of universal fit :D
    your response confirms my thoughts tho... thanks!

    I did find another seller selling one just for my model but am gonna make sure the apple logo is cut out exactly or I wont buy.... will write back here if/when he responds.

    Cheers!

    I just bought speck's clear hardshell for my uniMB - fits like a glove - and they say on the website it also fits the 13" MBP. I can see no reason why they would hassle with all those returns if it does not truely fit the MBP.

    At $50 each Speck is pretty darn expensive... plus shipping:eek:

    For that price i can get roughly 3 covers from different sellers from ebay and i'm pretty sure one will fit... most of them are based in China anyway so I'm willing to put a pretty dollar down in saying they must have ripped of Speck's design and specs :)D) anyway

    Quality with things like this are key. I recommend Incase. If you search around you can find either for cheaper. I payed $35 for my 17" Speck Case. I plan on keeping it for a couple of weeks until the Incase gets released.
