    Default Case Recommendations for new 13" Macbook Pro Retina?

    My daughter just received her new 13" MacBook Pro Retina from the school bookstore (yikes, college in the fall.....).

    She said she wants a case to help protect. She would like something that either is clear or translucent enough to allow the logo/light to be seen through it.

    I also would like it to be relatively protective and something known to last (a lot of reviews for some cases talk about corners of the case breaking off with normal use, etc..).

    Any ideas from the forum? Thanks ahead of time for your ideas!!!

    Default Case Recommendations for new 13" Macbook Pro Retina?

    I was looking at that as a possibility for her. Thanks!

    But my concern with that one......if you look at the reviews on the Apple Store, they are basically all negative, with concerns about build quality, corners breaking down in a relatively short period of time, etc....

    Granted, people are quick to post negative comments, but I just don't know in this one.....

    The Kuzy case (on amazon) seems to get pretty good reviews too.....

    I have a Speck Clearshell on my MacBook, I have had zero issues with it. Mine is the black Clearshell and I can still see my logo and stickers on my MacBook. The lighter colors will be even more translucent.
