I received this case as a Christmas Present. Already (March) it is falling apart. It also is showing wear on the soft touch case. I use my computer every day but not hard wear and tear, it is not packed in a bag or carried to and from work and 'bashed' around. For the price and as a gift I would have expected it to have lasted much better for much longer. I am very disappointed that my brother 'wasted' his money on this.
