          I had the clear incase shell for my MacBook Pro and loved it. Unfortunately the top part started to crack and I bought the black case since there was no more clear one to have.
          The black has a great feel and fits much more snugly on the laptop. I love it!

              This shell from Incase is far superior to the Speck case I am replacing. The satin exterior texture does not show dirt or scratches so far, and it provides better air movement on the bottom of the computer.

              Comments about Incase Designs Corp Hardshell Case for MacBook Pro 15" with Retina Display (Black Frost):

              I just purchased a late-2013 15" Retina Macbook Pro. This case fits my computer ALMOST perfectly. One of the clips on the bottom case keeps sliding off. This is pretty minor though since the case does not come off at all. It stays in place but the clip still slides off a bit. The top and bottom case do catch a little when you open the computer past the 90 degree mark but that's all. Very minor. My computer will still be protected regardless. I had a late 2008 White Macbook before and I had scuffs/scratches everywhere on it. This is the solution to that. Definitely grab this if you want superb protection. Also, you should really consider a bag with a separate, padded laptop compartment if you'll be moving around frequently with it.

                I use this case with my 2012 Macbook pro retina.
                It has a nice feel, I like how the rubber feet are recessed in the molded plastic- harder to knock off (my last case had an issue with the rubber feet coming off).
                Unfortunately, the top lid is slightly undersized and does not quite fit correctly- it will clip on, but not perfectly snug leaving a bit of the case protruding slightly at the bottom.

                Looks great and works as described. The two prices do catch a bit when opening more than 90 deg.

                        Great slim case for my 2013 Macbook Pro 15" Retina. It's nice and rubberized and makes the machine feel invincible. Great price too compared to incase's website for $50, what a deal! Only downside is if you are moving around the computer a lot, holding with one hand or whatever, sometimes the case pops off a tad, not the whole case, just a clip on the corner that I have to re snap every so often. This isn't a huge deal, I just wish they made the clips a bit bigger. Other than that, this is the case if you want to have protection and still be able to go in and out of your daily bag.

                          I use this case to protect my MacBook Pro 15" with Retina Display.

                          This is the first Incase product I've owned, and it won't be my last. This case is great. It's easy to install, fits snug to my 15" Retina, and is very stylish. It's a soft-touch case, while still being really sturdy to offer good protection. The case is translucent so that you can still see the Apple logo when it lights up on the back. All the ports are easily accessible with the case. Having it on also seems to make it easier to open the laptop.

                          I was a little concerned about my purchase at first. I looked more into it after I ordered it and saw that there is a perforated section on the bottom of the cover, probably for ventilation - except there are no vents there. Also, I noticed that the cut outs for the vents on the sides of the laptop don't line up with the actual vents. Regardless, these two nuances are easily overlooked, and so the case looks flawless.

                          A friend of mine has the Moshi iGlaze. I compared the two, and I noticed that her iGlaze felt more plastic than my Incase. I am greatly satisfied that I got this case for about $10 less.
