I have an Apple MacBook Air M1 A2337, and after reading the reviews, I was assuming the case wouldn’t fit, but I ordered it anyway, because of the vibrant orange color. I followed the included instructions, and I haven’t had any issues with it fitting the MacBook. If you follow the instructions, it seems to snap on with ease, and does not easily snap off. See the photos that I took, so that you can see that there are no parts of the case that fits loosely. The color is beautiful, and from the other side of the room, it absolutely makes me smile. However, the MacBook Air M1, is a well designed beautiful machine, but this plastic case kinds of cheapens the look. That’s something to be mindful of if you’re into aesthetics. Overall, the feel is ok. It adds a tad bit more weight to the MacBook, but not enough for it to be a deal breaker. The keyboard skin actually fits better than in the picture I posted. However, it just slows down my typing. I love the orange, but the travel across the keys is much slower with the skin on the keyboard, versus, just using the native naked MacBook Air keyboard. There are no issues with connecting and adapters to the laptop with the case on, as far as I can tell. I’ve had no issues. I can open the MacBook fully and at varying angles, without the case being an issue. When the MacBook is closed, there are also no issues with the case. It also comes with a screen protector, which I have not used, but thought it was a cool addition, to an already complete package. The one drawback occurred when, I first opened the case, there was a strong smell of nail polish remover, and it is strong. It went away after a few hours, but it really bothered my throat for awhile, while I was setting up the laptop. If you’re sensitive to smells and you’re planning on purchasing one of these cases, be sure and air it out for awhile. Finally, I can’t speak to the durability, because I haven’t dropped my MacBook, and I’m not eager to test that feature of the case anyway . I am considering purchasing some other colors, because I like the modularity of being able to change colors with whatever mood I’m in.
This case is the type I wanted as I felt the MB Air appearance is too nice to hide under a solid cover. I also ordered a laptop sleeve case for the computer at the same time (Lacdo 360 case). The padded case and the air pillows kept things from moving in the box such that the case was not damaged or scratched in transit, which other reviewers had mentioned. The case itself was packed in a protecting sleeve with the screen and keyboard protector inside, As seen in the photos, the top and bottom sections were wrapped together and separated with a plastic piece that kept them from rubbing together, and then each cover was again wrapped in its own protective plastic. Seem like overkill but there was no damage or scratched to the case when I finally removed all the protection. I did notice the pieces were flexible and although smooth, they do provide a good grip for the laptop once they are on. The directions were not very clear in that they showed more tabs on the cover pieces that they actually had. I dod follow the suggestion to put the bottom case on first. It is a tight fit for both pieces so be prepared to use some pressure to snap these covers onto the laptop. The top cover has two tabs in the front that snap over the front edge of the top section of the laptop. The photos show that the back edges of the cover have rounded lips that fit on the back of the computer. To get the cover on, I first snugged the back edges as tight as I could to the laptop cover. As I said, be prepared to use some effort to do this. Once the back was all the way on, you snap the tabs over the front of the laptop. Be sure to push the rest of the edges of the cover onto the laptop lid as shown in the picture. The screen protector went on in a similar fashion as a phone screen protector. They provide something to clean off the screen before you apply the protector. It is important that your screen is completely clean otherwise you may end up with bubbles. There are two strips on the screen protector and you only remove one to apply the screen protector and use the other to hold it in lace as you put it on. I started by lining up the right edge of the screen protector on the laptop, bent it to curve it slightly, and slowly let it adhere to the laptop screen while using edge of two credit cards together to force out any bubbles that started to form. If bubbles do form, just lift up the protector to the point where the bubble may be and smooth the protector with the edge of the card. I placed the top of the laptop on a padded surface such that when I was applying the protector, I could put more pressure using the edge of the credit card (or something similar with a straight edge that won't damage your laptop screen). The top was parallel with the padded flat surface and the keyboard section was perpendicular to the flat surface (used our kitchen island as the flat surface). This provide the most control while smoothing the screen protector. The protector is nearly an exact fit for the laptop screen so it is important to ensure the starting edge is lined up correctly. The keyboard protector is better that some of the others I have seen in reviews. It is translucent and doesn't lable the letters and/or numbers so you don't have the miss-alignment issues you see with protectors that have that feature. I prefer this to the labeled ones. I sits on top of the keyboard and covers all the keys except the touch ID key (see picture). If a liquid is spilled on this, it seems like it could get into the computer around the edges. It should protect from a splash depending on where it lands, and it should keep any particles or crumbs and such out of the keyboard when it is on the computer. I am not a touch typist so I can't say how the protector preforms for someone who has that skill. The last photo shows the laptop with all the parts on, including the screen and keyboard protector. Overall, I am very pleased with this product and feel this was a good value and expect it should last. The cover is a very tight fit so I do not expect it to come off easily during normal use. It does a great job and I like the clear look. I would recommend this cover to anyone.
After quite a bit of trial and error (instructions were not clear), I got the case on my new macbook. Once it was on, I immediately noticed some smudges on the case that only got worse every time I touched it. The clearish cloudy case does not mix with the natural oils you have on your hands, leaving the computer looking cheap and dirty. Not at all what I was going for. Would not recommend, at least not in this color.
I bought this for my Macbook air 2018, A1932. It has too many cover in the bottom case, so it's hard to open the laptop as much as they normally do. As you see in the picture, that is the maximum degree of my Macbook air can open when I apply this case. The product description is not SAME as the REAL product. I was really careful to see the picture of what they provided, and chose THIS PRODUCT! BUT, it's not same as the picture. I attached the pics of bottom back part of the case and the description from the product page. It isn't same as the description. In the picture, the bottom back part is pretty short, so it makes the laptop lid is able to open wide. But in the real product, the bottom back part is long, so it's hard to open wide. I don't think they bought new macbook air and applied it before selling it. I definitely refund.
I bought this case just to protect my laptop from scratches and fingerprints. The case does a great job protecting from scrapes! I don't throw my $700 laptop around, so I don't know how it does with big drops, and I don't plan on finding out. As a bonus, the clear allows you to put papers and stickers in between your laptop and your case, putting them on display, without actually having to stick anything to the laptop itself. The included keyboard cover is amazing. I didn't plan on using it, but it makes the keyboard a very cool texture and is an added bonus to this great purchase.
I bought this because it seemed like a budget option for my new Macbook Air 2020. I put all the parts together and have 3 major complaints: 1. There is a slight bulge and gap between the panels and the laptop, which seems to make the laptop not close properly and when it's closed , leave some sort of bulge. I thought it would be flatter. 2. The keyboard cover is a nice addition. Except, it's not spread till the end, leaving plenty of space for dust and water to seep in. It would have been better if it covered it till the end. 3. Smudges, smudges, smudges. Would be an embarrassment to use in public. But didn't I buy it to protect it when it's used in public???
I would say that the screen protector that came it was nice. I held my breath as I put it on and it went very smoothly. Just had to cut it in one corner because i didn't align it properly. Wish it would have come with a paper board that would help align it. But then again I might be asking too much for this price point.
Should you get it? Yes, maybe...it's a decent cover if you can look past the above faults.
So for those curious about getting this case. I’ll answer as many questions as possible. This is in regards to the m1 MacBook Air so if you don’t have Apple silicon please look to other reviews.
The blue was a nice color. Everything came without any defects.
The case actually fit perfectly. The clips to snap them in are a little ridged so you need a little bit of force to get them to clip in and a lot more force to get the clips off. My nails and thumb tips hurt. Instruction is pretty clear to get the shell on, I just thinks those saying it doesn’t fit didn’t push hard enough. It takes a good amount as I said to engage the clips.
Great. So, it clips on, fits great and looks good, AND it DOES open past 90 degrees. But I wouldn’t say it opens the full amount the MacBook Air was designed to open somewhere like 130-140 degrees. It probably opens to like 95 degrees or so with the shell on. I thought maybe I installed it incorrectly so I took the top shell off seeing as the bottom really only goes on one way. The MacBook still only opens the 90ish degrees without the top shell. It’s the bottom shell that is the issue and the fact that the screen opens so damn close to the bottom half of the laptop. These new MacBooks are really designed to open and close with the slimmest of margins.
tldr: if you don’t mind a nice looking protective shell that won’t allow your m1 MacBook Air to open past vertical because you have the best ergonomic setup like a swing arm and adjustable table then get this shell. It’s really well worth it. If you’re on the go and really don’t have an ergonomic work space and you need the screen to tilt almost parallel to the work surface this isn’t going to work just simply by how Apple designed this to open.
Cons: -FINGERPRINT MAGNET!! Hard to wipe them off if possible at all. -The top lid cover snapped (Cracked on both edges) on me when I was trying to remove it for cleaning. -Keyboard cover has old buttons and old style arrow keys (did not properly line up with keys on 2020 M1 MacBook Air) -Bottom rubber feet aren't the best non-slip.. Better than the default rubber feet.
Overall: While it is an ok value for the price of $20. You get what you pay for, but personally I would suggest spending the extra money and going with a brand like Speck, I had their cases for both of my previous MacBooks, and now I got it for the M1 air, it is much higher quality and feels lighter (but not thin/cheap)
First of all, I never write reviews, but scratching up my new MacBook I worked so hard to save up for I have no remorse. First thing I noticed was how easily this thing picks up grease and dust (and I wash my damn hands and dusted my laptop before and after installing). Second, this case is not easy to install or take off, I had to press so hard just to get this piece of junk to stay on. Third, the edges are not smooth, and the case is made of rough plastic. I think a combination of pressing the case on and the rough plastic are what scratched up my laptop (which I got brand new from apple NOT USED and I know for a fact that mark wasn’t there before). IN ADDITION, my package did NOT come with the screen film like it said in the description. Oh also, the case is not very appealing, it makes my laptop look like a chunky, greasy, piece of garbage. Ironic that something that’s supposed to protect my devise was the thing that scratched it up. I do not recommend this product.
