      fits the computer well, allows the lid to fully open, which I was worried about. Also fully covers the apple logo on the lid (unlike some others), which I like -- I'm not so insecure that I need the world to see I bought a mac!

      It also keeps my legs from getting cold against the aluminum MBP -- TMI, I know, but there you go.

      Good ventilation on the bottom, though I'm not sure how effective it is. As far as protection goes, I'm still pretty careful, even with it on. It's there to prevent scratches, but not "damage" from dropping or other rough use. Since that is the case, it could probably be thinner -- hence 4 out of 5 stars.

      It limits the laptop to opening to 90°. In other words, if you're used to pushing your screen back so you can use it while it's on your lap, you can't. At least, the screen can't face you directly. It doesn't go back that far when you have this slick looking cover on it.

              Please note, I was concerned this case wouldn't open past 90 degrees as another reviewer mentioned. The case I received does allow the laptop to open the full amount.

              Great case! Only noticed that the left corner on the bottom tends to slip just a bit when picking it up. The finish also smudges a bit, but it protects well and looks great!

                    Super happy with this case. It's got a great non-slip (but not rubbery) texture to it and clips on perfectly snug. Being translucent and letting the apple light shine through is great. It does not get in the way of any connections or make the lid more difficult to open like some of the cheaper cases I've seen. It makes me feel much more confident moving my macbook from place to place. I've been extremely happy with incase products for my laptops and phones.

                      Works like a charm, I am a college student and it has held up in the past few weeks going from class to class. I always get compliments on it. My favorite thing is the texture, no fingerprints and easy to clean. Buy this case, you will not regret it!And the price from B&H is [$] cheaper then [*], B&H for life!

                        The Incase Hard Shell protects the MacBookPro Aluminum case without spoiling the aesthetic silhuette of the laptop.

                        The Incase hard Shell finish is a smooth matte finish surface which does not show fingerprints as readily as some of its competitors

                        Installation took mere seconds

                        My only negative comment is that the black Hard Shell has a slight purple tinge to iy.

                          I use this product for my Macbook Pro 15" unibody model and it's great. It's a clean look, and snaps right onto my case. I've always enjoyed inCase products for my iphone and so getting a product for my Macbook Pro just made sense. Glad I made the investment.

                          One thing I don't like about it is that for some reason it's not flush with the bottom front part of the laptop. Other than that, it's a great product.

                            I really feel like this product protects my computer. The case does not effect my screen position as other reviewers have mentioned. I use it for everyday use to prevent dings and scratches and then put it in a soft case when I travel with it in my backpack, it fits snug but well in the soft case with the hard case on. I highly recommend this product.

                            Purchased this case for my new 15" MacBook Pro. Installation was a breeze. The touch and feel is great. Yes the rubbery texture attracts dust and fingerprints, but they just wipe away with your hand. It adds a non-slip surface to you MacBook when carrying it around, and I've had absolutely no temperature issues even though I pound my machine with Final Cut and Motion.

                            What keeps me from the five stars is one small caveat: the lid will only open at exactly a 45º angle, less than the screen allows normally. So when sitting at a desk with a taller chair like I'm used to, I can't tilt the screen to the angle I'm used to.

                            Other than that, get it if you want your machine to remain scratch free for a long time!

                              This case has been a great benefit being that I am always traveling. Its stylish and rugged, it adds a bit of weight to the laptop but the extra protection is well worth it!

                                    Good case overall, only complaint is that a clip on the right side sometimes slips off and the case bends when you pick up the laptop. This is the only reason I gave it 4 stars.

                                    It limits the laptop to opening to 90°. In other words, if you're used to pushing your screen back so you can use it while it's on your lap, you can't. At least, the screen can't face you directly. It doesn't go back that far when you have this slick looking cover on it.

                                        The case looks great and fits like a glove! The cases latch pops off on one side where I pick up the computer when it's open. But it's user error more then bad design.
