Hi everyone. I got an absinthe green speck smartshell for my 13" rMBP and am not sure whether to keep it or exchange it for a clear one. I've had a clear seethru in the past, but it was in a terrible shape so I threw it away. I was using it naked, but I recently spot two scratches in the bottom and have no idea where it happen. I'm a phd student and my mac goes everywhere with me. I take good care of my mac and carry it on a incase backpack with fur-lined compartiment (the campus exclusive mini). I can only imagine it got scratched by an uneven surface or something like that. My current thoughts are: i like the color. not sure if it will annoy me in the future. While I like the clear option, the idea of a colored one - to change a bit the look of the rmbp - sounds good to me. People with colored hardshell cases: do you get sick of it easily? I got sick of the clear one before. With this, whenever i miss my gorgeous aluminum I can just take the top off - since I'm worried with the bottom.
