Great Item with some flaws
on 11 March 2012
When I bought my Macbook air it was clear to me that some sort of protection is needed with all those shiny surfaces. For protection this item ticks all the boxes, and it actually makes the macbook air easier to handle by giving the hand a better grip compared with the grip you would have on an aluminum surface.
Having said that, my case came from the manufacturer slightly short in thickness at the point where the main body connects with the monitor. As I used it more and more the clips that where barely hanging in their place started to come off and eventually break. Now that part is only held with two other clips and the comes off every now and then - a slight inconvenience.
So to wrap up, I think this is a great item that I am not going to give up easily because the pros far outweigh the cons.

IMPROTANT UPDATE: PLEASE READ
As indicated in my original review the clips holding the case in place were cracking slowly until the case reached a point where it barely fit the laptop. So after some research I decided to replace this cover with "ZAGG Invisible Shield" but when I took off the bottom cover I noticed some dirt which when was wiped off I noticed that there was scratch marks! apparently the relatively loose cover at the base caused dirt particles to get in and when I put the laptop on any surface these particles do their scratching.
As one of the main reason for buying such a case is to keep the mac in as new condition I recommend not buying this product at all, it didn't last and its loose fitting meant allowing particles to get inside that cause scratching.
