    I've got a 13" Macbook Pro 2010 version, with a Speck See-thru hard-shell case.

    Has this particular case caused any problems with heat dissipation? I don't really want to go without something to protect all that beautiful aluminum, but... If its bad for the machine, I'll take it off.

    Thanks for any thoughts/experience!

    Nah, I have the same case on my 13" since I got it, and it doesn't cause any heat problems. I checked the temps using iStat with the case on and off, and there is not much difference, if any. So you are good to go.

    heat is vented through the hinge ... the case will cause zero heat issues :cool:

    Awesome, thanks for the response. I won't worry about it, then.

    Ah, I wasn't sure where heat was vented through, and I had heard that some cases caused problems. I guess this one isn't included in that category! :D
