Great potential... but alas not there yet.
on 6 August 2014
Received this item very quickly. It looked good and I can understand the idea of security as it looks at first glance an old book. It is ridged and appears well made. It appeared to give good protection from knocks and had potential to protect from more serious drops. However after half an hour of use I was resigned to send it back. The case is about half an inch too big at both ends and as a result the MBP is never in the same position in the case in which it was left. The restraining elastics hold the top in place but I found that when closing my MBP it slid out of the case, which was very annoying. The other problem I found was that the zips were up against the back corners of the case and I found I was continually worried about the corners being scratched. As other reviewers have stated this may not be a problem but the price makes it so. I feel that if these issues were resolved this has the potential to be a great case even at the price, but no as is.
