I had my MacBook Pro 13″ for several months now. However, it took me some time to find the perfect case for my beloved laptop. Now, I finally found the case and I loved it! When I went to the store, I was looking for the red color case. They didn’t have it in stock so I ended up getting a purple one. I said to myself that if I’m getting satin, might as well get purple as it’s most known when it comes to velvet/satin.
The product is called Speck SeeThru Satin and it’s engineered specifically to fit onto the unibody MacBook Pro. I remember distinctively that I used a Speck SeeThru case on my old MacBook Pro 15″. That case though is different because it was glossy and a bit slippery on the hand. The Speck SeeThru Satin case which I got yesterday was a complete upgrade and improvement compared to Speck SeeThru. I guess the difference is with the material used on the exterior of the case particularly the rubberized coating. Speck SeeThru Satin is such a high-quality case with an elegant and soft feel.
When you see the case on display, go on and touch the case to feel and understand why it’s a must-case for your MacBook Pro.
The Speck SeeThru Satin includes two pieces of hard polycarbonate plastic with an added soft-touch rubberized exterior coating. The silky feel is the most wonderful feature of the case. I actually notice myself caressing my MacBook Pro every now and then 😛
Of course, the SeeThru Satin design blended well with MacBook Pro’s minimalistic design. There are available cases for aluminum unibody MacBook Pro 13″ and 15″ including the ones with Thunderbolt port.
I started with the bottom case and I noticed two things:
- Ventilation slot that works perfectly with the MacBook Pro’s internal ventilation process to keep the gadget cool and safe.
- Rubberized feet to cover the black rubber pads on the MacBook Pro.
The front case, on the other hand, is a work of art.
Its translucent coating enables the Apple logo to show through the top. The Speck SeeThru Satin case is supposedly 30% thinner than the old version of the case. I appreciate the thinness plus how the case holds everything together with the very small clips on the edges.
The design of the SeeThru Satin is spot on. I do not need to remove the case whenever I need to access any of the keys, sensors, ports, plugs or buttons. I can open and close my MacBook Pro just like how I do it without the case. All features of the MacBook Pro are accessible.
I really love how the Speck SeeThru Satin was put together. Everything just works!
Putting the Speck SeeThru Satin case is like giving the MacBook Pro a makeover. I appreciate that it has a lot of color options that would match ones’ personality.
I can go on and on about its benefits… If there’s one word I can say about the case, it would be beautiful!
The Speck SeeThru Satin for MacBook Pro 13″ costs about Php 2,450. While the price may set you aback, that feeling will diminish quickly when you start using the case. The form-fitting factor and the soft-touch hard shell are so great that it will be so hard to resist not getting one for your Mac laptop 🙂
