MacBook Pro :: Wants To Get Hardshell Case

May 2, 2010

I was thinking about getting a hardshell case for the macbook pro. However with all this controversy with heating I was wondering if a hardshell would affect the macbook's temps even more. Can anyone who has a case on their new macbook pro give some insight on the temp differences?

MacBook Pro :: Looking For Incase Hardshell Case For MBP 13

Sep 16, 2009

where I can find a black or clear/white one for a 13" Macbook Pro?I've looked everywhere online with no luck? This seems to be the one to get over the Satin See Thru Speck. Also does the incase fit over a Macbook that has an Invisible Skin or some other type of film like protector? My Macbook 13" from late '08 was put in a Speck See Thru case on day 1 and after awhile it left small dimple dents in the bottom case. I'd like to get my new machine covered in a shield and then add the Incase. It may be too thick, but I'd like to know if someone tried it. You never can have enough protection!!

MacBook :: New Speck See Thru Satin Hardshell Case For Alum MB

Dec 18, 2008

There's plenty of opinions on whether to cover your new Alum MB or let it go naked. My question is about the New Speck See Thru Cases for the new Alum MB... See Thru Satin and Hardshell Clear... If you have recently purchased one would you tell us how it fits on the new notebook. Particularly can you still tilt the lid all the way back like they claim? InCase claimed to be redesigning one for the Alum but nothing is out yet. Does anyone know anything about that? Are they really making a case for the Alum? I know the old Incase Hardshell's restricted the tilt on the lid. Anyone have experience with both, the new Speck and the old InCase? And what about all the claims about the Speck products scratching the notebooks? We're concerned here with the "New" ones. So who has bought one?

MacBook Pro :: Looking For Speck Seethru Case - Hardshell Or Wrapsol?

Jul 22, 2010

Just to let everyone know, I am probably the most indecisivve person on the face of the earth. That being said, please back-up your answers & be paitient with me. I will be a college student this upcoming fall, and have decided to go with the Macbook Pro 13".

I will definitely be getting a[n Incase] sleeve. What I'm struggling with is if I need an additional case. Speck seethru case, Incase Hardshell... Or maybe the Wrapsol. [no ZAGG.... I have a ZAGG cover for my iPhone & am throughly dissapointed. Every corner has peeled off].

The thing I am terrified about with the hardshell cases is that they might scratch my MBP? This thing is going to be my BABY, & I will not stand for anything scratching it!! But dust & tiny particles are bound to get in between the case & MBP.... and I've heard many bad reviews about that.

I've also been looking into the Moshi screen/ keyboard skins. They seem great... but this is all getting to be pretty expensive, & how much of it do I really NEED anyways? Is the MBP really prone to scratches, say, if it's just sitting on my desk? [if it's anything like the back of the iPhone, then it is.]I also think the MBP in itself looks gorgeous, and I'm not too interested in the idea of covering it with a piece of plastic.

MacBook Pro :: Speck Satin Versus Incase Hardshell

Jul 22, 2009

this topic has come up in discussion a few times. I know that that I was looking feedback originally but all the research lead me to believe that it was a 50/50 between the two. My girlfriend and I both have the 13" MBP. She has the Incase Hardshell (the one for the previous generation) and I recently picked up the Speck Satin 13" for MBP because of the recent discount.

At first glance, they seem the same. But after further inspection, they do differ and although it may be subjective, this is just what I see.


When I first received the case for my Speck, I opened the package up excitedly. It was nice to find a small piece of cloth in the package to wipe down the case and the laptop. However, I found small surface scratches on the inside of the case. The sides of the plastic are sharp as hell! Not sure if it's suppose to be like this. There was even excess plastic sticking out. The Incase did not have a cloth, but everything was clean and all the plastic was scratch free smooth.


Nice lined pattern but only 1/4 of the grille is actually open for heat to escape. This opened area is located on the top left corner. Given this is where I find the majority of the heat to be, I would much prefer if the whole thing was open. They have the grille design in there already, why not just open it up? The Incase's vents consist of small holes that span the majority of the bottom. My personal feel is that more ventilation, the better.


The button to check battery power on the Speck is a little off. I can't tell if I hit it or not. The Incase actually has some feedback, I know that I have pressed it. Now I am not sure if it's the colour choice, but I can't see the battery indicator lights. This could be the fact that I have a deeper darker colour. I have the red and my girlfriend has green. I can see her's clearly in any light but I can barely see mine even indoors in low light.


Now the Incase was nice in that the whole right side of the case is covered except for the slot where the cd/dvd is suppose to enter. The Kensington lock is covered but the Incase is meant for the UMB. The Seck case seems like they took the easy way out. Rather than cutting out a slot for the optical drive, they just took a whole chunk out. Not a big deal when it comes to functionality, but it's just nice.


Speck has plastic feet, Incase has rubber feet. When I placed both laptops side by side on a table. The Speck moves so easily as there isn't enough friction. The Incase does move as well but you need give it a little more force.


Not sure why but the Incase's cut out for the IR is larger than required. I can only assume they did it to not impeded the sleep light to shine through. My Speck is cut out only where the IR port is, the sleep light is covered but is bright enough to shine through the case.


I think the Incase is better built, and is the perfect balance between form and function. I am actually thinking about returning this and getting the Incase when they release theirs, but I hear they take forever to release redesigns. On another note though....I think that the Speck case was sharp at the sides and had excess plastic because they used their old 13" UMB stock and put it back into a machine to make the cut outs larger to accommodate the ports. Cannot confirm this and I am bad at articulating it but what I am trying to say is that I don't think they went back to the drawing board for this. They essentially said, we need to make the cut outs larger and rahter than making a new die/mold, they make alterations on their old cases, if so...that is not cool.

MacBook Pro :: 15" Unibody Speck Versus Incase Hardshell

Apr 28, 2010

I bought a new MBP last week.It is still sitting in its box.I am on my old ibook g4 with half a broken screen as I don't want to scratch my new MBP.I am a poor collage student that wants to take good care of my big purchase.It was the laptop or a used car and I went with the laptop as my g4 got hurt.Biggest purchase I have made EVER.My g4 was fine and very well cared for but I have diabetes and passed out and fell on the ibook

I was very jazzed about buying a hardshell to protect my computer.Then seen [URL] had some nasty reviews about both the incase & speck.So I thought crap what should I do.

Incase I have read that computer only stays at one angle?That it dose not close all the way or makes a popping sound when it rubs the back.I am sure some could be due to not installing it right.Someone even said they could not get off and apple took it off and the top part of the computer broke

I didn't see to much on Speck but did read on this forum more people prefer incase?I figure you all know what you are talking about when it comes to what is good bad for the mac items so kinda registered to get some Ideas on what to get.

Does anyone know if the PB 15.4 Aluminum case is exchangeable with the Macbook Pro 15.4 case? I have a 1.6Ghz Powerbook which has a few dents in the front but I don't see any of these cases for sale on Ebay, but I do see Macbook Pro cases. It's really a nasty cosmetic issue I'd like to resolve and then sell it.

OS X :: Unable To Know About Case-Sensitive To Case-Ignorant?

Jun 14, 2010

I am working on restoring a Time Machine backup from Leopard to a clean installation of Snow Leopard. The only problem I'm facing is that the Leopard backup is on a case-sensitive drive (and the Snow Leopard drive is set up, by default, as case-ignorant).

I have scoured the Web the last two days and have not found a definitive answer to my question: Is there a way to transfer the data from the Time Machine backup on the case-sensitive drive to the case-ignorant Snow Leopard drive?

Yesterday I ran across a tutorial explaining how this might be accomplished using SuperDuper! but a commenter explained that Disk Utility could be used and was much easier.

I tried the Disk Utility method but it didn't work, and I ran out of time to give the SuperDuper! option a try. Does anyone know if it, or even Carbon Copy Cloner, might solve my problem?

OS X :: Can't Remove Incase Hardshell?

Aug 4, 2008

I tried to remove the Incase hardshell that is on my Macbook Pro. The bottom came off, but it did damage to the vent area on the back. However, my main problem right now is that the top cover will not come off. I've tried using as much force as I think wise, and it just won't budge. The little tabs won't move beyond the seam between the plastic bezel and the anodized aluminum.

If I ever get this thing off, I'm going to go back to the Speck hardcase.

MacBook :: Speck Black Satin VS Incase Black Hardshell Cases?

Mar 19, 2009

I'm looking for a few good ways to transport and use my UMB. I figure buying a hardshell case & a timbuk2 bag seem like a good combo. Question is - which do you guys think is better, the Speck or Incase cases? Anyone have any experiences? I had the Incase hardshell for my old whitebook.

Seemed to work out alright. The other option I thought of was getting the invisible shield. Anyone have any thoughts?

MacBook Pro :: Sleeve Versus Case Versus No Case Or Sleeve

Jun 25, 2010

Soon i will be getting a Mac(i think) and was wondering about a case. Since i want a Macbook Pro with the Unibody Housing i want it to be safe. Now i can't decide if i want a case or a Sleeve. Now the Case might have heat issues even with the vents that are on the case. The sleeve won't have that issue but will it be more prone to scratching the Macbook it self? Or should i go no case and just sorta deal with the scratches. There is a Price difference between the Sleeve and the Case. About $20 Cdn more for the Case.
