    i just went to the apple store looking for a speck hard shell case. ive been reading in older threads that the incase and speck shells wont fit perfectly where the mag safe connects. something about it not seating properly...

    anyway, the one i bought says "for the 08-09 models", (and ive got 2010) but there is also a sticker on it with a pic of the mag safe and it says "yes it fits!"

    and it does indeed fit perfectly. no bad connection at the mag safe what so ever. this shell is very nice.

    now im thinkin about getting some translucent color film and putting it inside the shell where the apple will be... therefor illuminating whatever color i go with. ill post pics when this is done.

    great shell!

    Glad to hear it fits! Ill probably pick one up myself today if I could find that internet coupon that everybody talks about.

    Strange though, I remember one of the first people on here to post their 2010 AG 15" had the black satin and it didnt fit, he had to put the mag safe the opposite direction.

    i saw the 13" cases right next to the 15" on the shelf, but i did not look to see if they had the "it fits" sticker on them

    Coupon code SFD822TP takes 25% off total purchase price on Speck's website; makes the case $37.50 vs. $50.

    that is almost exactly what i had in mind except i wont be opening the macbook.

    ill just apply the colored film to the inside of the speck case where the apple shines through.

    putting the film inside the macbook will void your warranty... my method will not and ill get the same results.

    that second youtube link was great tho... i guess they mount a little display instead of just colored film and the macbook recognizes it as a second monitor... ?

    does this mean I can buy it online too? the website does not show that the seethru has any updates done to it...

    edit: I called speck and apparently that said that they ship apple all their priority cases first (so all the updated ones) and whatever is left goes up on their website. So apple stores will get the updated cases before even they do.

    BE CAREFUL! The Speck SeeThru Satin case that has the "Yep, it fits!" sticker it a complete sham. What did they do? They opened all of the old cases and chopped off the part of the case that was getting in the way, and not in a clean way either, and sold it as new without any indication! The one I just got was completely dirty/dusty and the part of the case that they cut away looks like crap. I have contacted Speck about this and they don't give a damn. I'm so upset (I can't just return it, my mom spent $10 to send this to me and the closest apple store is 60 miles away). They also said that they have no knowledge about the "Yep, it fits!" sticker.

    mc751n,

    Thanks, I think I'll go the Incase router after hearing that.

    I got mine yesterday (for the 13" though), but I did saw a black satin case for the 15" too. I don't know about the 15", but seems like Speck just shaved out the plastic in my 13"'s.:( Not really noticeable though. If you can't wait, Incase has got the whole set out already.

    the "yep it fits" new models are absolutely not a sham

    my case fits perfectly and magsafe seats perfectly

    there is in no way any "chopped off" parts of this case

    everything is formed from the mold

    sounds to me like you got one that some user modded and returned and it made its way back on the shelf

    Ended up buying a red one off the bay (new in package) for $22.50 (shipping included)...

    But I have a late 2008 model, so I can't comment on the fit with the new power adapters...
