TheEnderKidTZX: I was a bit worried about purchasing a case for the MacBook Pro because I
thought it would damage the feel of the Apple product, but this review
helped me and it makes the MacBook pro feel even better. Gonna buy one with
my rMBP definitely.
Brujah: Your video just sell me this useful piece for my MBP. Great review.
XDreamFallacy: God damn too bad i didn't know there is such thing before. I just damaged
my case a little bit :( Thanks for review.
Tyler Christensen: I have had no problems with mold people have talked about on the apple
store for the speck satin black case. I removed it for the first time after
6months of use with no mold or scratches what so ever. My MBP Retina 15"
still looks brandnew on the outside.
Benjamin C: Thanks for the great review! Just about to order one on amazon now!

kctess5: Amazing story: my mac fell of the roof of my car going 50mph (I forgot it
there), and this case saved it's life. There is a dent in the screen where
it landed, but there is no scratching because the case took the brunt of
the damage. I will replace the screen because it reminds me of my
stupidity, but the computer still works great.

gobbo241: Thats the best talk up of a plastic case I have ever heard, you would be a
James Woodcock: I have taken the cover off many times and not scratched the MacBook Pro at
nsbkaizen: Thanks, it's reassuring to know the aluminum is durable enough for the
tabs. Looks like I'll be ordering this- can't wait.
Frankie Palmisano: Question, the dual microphones on the side of the MacBook are covered by
this case, does that diminish quality at all? Thanks!!!
Nicholas Neumann: Great review! You made me buy it!
DontTouchTheWatch: What's the difference between smartshell and seethru?

James Woodcock: I have tried various USB devices and had no problems accessing the ports
with this protective cover attached.
Speak Apple: Great review! I was against the whole 'covering up the beauty of an Apple
product', but it looks like this does a good job in terms of protection and
style! I second the more video reviews comment ;-)

Omar Jamil: why is my satin seethru causing a burning smell with my retina?
miiiiicro: I wish the case didn't show the apple logo at all when it is backlit. Then
it would be perfect. Like the incipio feather, but they don't make a case
for the 13 rMBP :(
sean m: You do great reviews James, should do more on console games and other
James Woodcock: Thank you for your kind comments :)
LIZARD CHEEKS: Does this case leave black markings on the corners?
