I mentioned last week that I had ordered a Seethru case from Speck Products for my 15″ MacBook Pro… well, it arrived yesterday and the afore mentioned laptop is now green.
The casing does add a bit of additional weight to the laptop – not much – but enough to make the screen start dipping itself when low enough (i.e. when you’re closing the lid). Other than that though it is quite durable and perfectly capable of keeping scratches off the laptops original surface.
The cover itself clips on and off no problem and is well ventilated on the bottom so should be no problems there. Having ordered it on the 26th of July to arriving via UPS yesterday I reckon thats a pretty good turn around. Wasn’t expecting it at all until at least next week at the earliest. Happy with purchase? Yep.
Ok, I dislike Macs, but that’s damn sweet!
I think macs are pretty scratch resistant anyway. My 3 year old powerboox is virtually scratchless and I fire it around the place – no cover, no case, just throw it into whatever bag is handy.
I like it. Lots. Very cool.
Ken, does it provide any protection for the screen?
Afraid not Cormac, only for the outer casing. Keeps the dirt out, well ventilated, looks snazzy. Does add a little weight to the screen is the only thing, the lid is a slight be heavier, but only when it’s almost closed.
