Good Protection, Nice Rubber Texture, Fits The Blackaluminum, Nice Look
I bought the Speck Satin Case for my new Aluminum MacBook Pro. I love it so far, especially the smooth texture. I had the original Speck case for my white MacBook and wasn't too happy with it. When I took the case off, I noticed that it left marks. I am hoping that this one does not. After taking it off for the first time, I did not notice any of these marks. It offers great protection and it is really easy to take off and on. I read people saying it took 30 mins to take it off, but it takes me only 5 to 10 seconds. I read online reviews about other MacBook cases and this one seemed like the best choice for me.
The only negatives about the case is that you can see fingerprints really easily when you touch the top or bottom of the case. It is easy to clean them off with a wet paper towel, but it is still frustrating. The other negative is that the Speck case is made for the both the older aluminum MacBook and the newer MacBook Pro. This means there is a vent on the bottom of the case that is unnecessary if you have a new Macbook Pro. Dust can get into these vents and cause problems. If you remove the case every 1-2 months, I'm sure this would help the problem. (if it even does cause a problem)
Overall, I am very happy with the new case. It offers great protection and I love the new texture of the Speck Case.
