Incase MacBook Pro Hardshell- 03.04.08
Incase sent over a MacBook Pro Hardshell case in Plum a few weeks ago (i spaced, and the pics of this review got momentarily lost in the pending MT posts, apologies!) ~ if you recall, it was in that gorgeous press kit! So below you can check out pics of it in person (and how nicely my NOTCOT sticker subtly shows through!) as well as images and info from the catalog of this *coming soon* case. Currently only the Incase Hardshell cases for Macbooks are available on their site. Additionally there is a video walkthrough from Incase on how to properly put one on! See all the details below.
On random notes that i’m not sure about yet… since the time i received and put on the Incase Hardshell, my macbook pro has been getting more spaztic and i’m not sure if it is at all related… but it was having more frequent over heating issues, as well as all the other random things that have been starting to happen (from the ram sucking, massive fan sounds, random freezing/crashing)… so i have taken it off for the last week and things have been better, although new problems keep popping up. Perhaps its time to wipe everything clean and start over, or go harass the “apple geniuses”, or buy a new toy?
Bottom line i LOVE the way the case feels on the laptop ~ that soft touch coating is quite awesome… although it wasn’t clear to me whether you are supposed to also use a protective sleeve when throwing it into a bag? I think my keys could certainly do quite a number on that sleek finish. And the other thing that drove me nuts, macbook pros already limit how far you can tilt the screen back… this takes away a bit more on the angle you get, which was quite annoying in bed/on the couch… and i might need to splurge on a black one… i’m not sure purple/plum are quite my color.
