Today my Mac Laptop Case, IPhone four case and IPad 2 arrived. Below I will go through what I like and don’t like about the products and if they do what they are meant to.
Speck MacBook Case
The design of the case is pretty simple and has the see through plastic that most apple products originally did. This is not a bad thing as it matches the theme of the product. The plastic is a turquoise colour and has the Spek logo on the front. On the back of the product there are holes for the fan of the computer which provides air vents for the Air. This helps so that there is a air flow around the laptop and the product doesn’t become too hot or the laptop doesn’t become too hot.
The product has a fairly strong build and the plastic has a flimsy feel to it, it also bends when you handle it but doesn’t show any sign on breaking. The case is actually pretty strong would defiantly protect the laptop in little drops or scuffs. However this would not prevent damage from huge disasters for example a drop from a building. We wouldn’t really work out if the case was meant for design or for protection as it doesn’t a pretty good job at both considering the price tag.
Overall and Other Details
In a nutshell the product does what it is meant to it protect the product and looks good. It provides comfort when using it on your lap and doesn’t mark surfaces when on the table. The pads on the bottom of the Mac case are non-stick so they don’t apply themselves to the table after a long period of time. As for fitting the case actually fits snug around the Mac without slipping or gaps. The case provides a smooth touch and doesn’t have rough corners as they are smoothed off.
iPhone 4 Case
Again the design is pretty simple but still provides the things needed for a iPhone 4 case. On the front of the case is the main gap for the touch screen which Is big enough for the whole screen. There are not separate covers for the home button or the front camera. On the bottom is the charger hole for the standard Apple charger. At the top of the case is a small indentation for the lock button and a hole for the standard 3mm audio jack. The left hand side of the case has 2 indentations for the volume and space for the silent switch. There are also holes on the back for the front main camera. There is also a hole for the microphone to stop any noise muffling. The main theme for the case is black and the pattern is a brick type tile arrangement. This again provides surface drip when holding or in bags, coats etc.
The case has a strong build to it and although it doesn’t provide the most stable support for the iPhone 4 it still has te build to stop it from any little damage while in pockets and in contact with keys are sharp objects. Since the screen has indentations for the different components that are on the Phone it provides then from being pushed in when not in use. The rubber/silicone is rather strong and it would take a long hard drop to scuff the leather or damage the case. When bending the case it forms back to its original position and does not get left misshaped in any way.
Other Details / Overall
The case does what it is meant to and looks and protects well. Considering its price you should go and buy it if you want you IPhone to look the part. There is nothing really else to say about the case except we loved it. If we had to describe it in three words they would be strong, stylish , super.
iPad 2 Dust Jacket
The design of the Dust Jacket is like the two other products simple but does the job. There is not really anything to say about the design except for the great looking leather like material that the case is made out of. On the inside of the Jacket is the holder for the iPad that keeps it inside. The back and sides of the case has all of the iPad 2 needed holes and indentations in. There is room for the charger, camera, volume buttons, microphones and other. The indentations and holes are really designed for ease and you don’t have to fight for 10 minutes to get the charger in.
The case isn’t particularly strong as it isn’t meant to be we feel it is more for the look and for the thing it does. Although it isn’t strong the case is in no means flimsy and provides good support for the iPad no matter what position you have it in. The holder in the inside is made from plastic and again it isn’t the roughest going of all things but does the job. We like the case as It is the same but different from most of the others available on the market. In the sense we mean that it provides better comfort and more support for the iPad.
Other Details and Overall
The Dust Jacket does what it says on the tin it protects looks stylish and provides comfort working and doing pleasure for the iPad. The case provides a firm hold on the iPad when in the landscape or portrait position and has features for all of the components on the iPad. The packaging isn’t anything spectacular as it only came to us in a plastic sleeve. Although it’s what the products like and we loved it. The case comes in at a reasonable price for the quality of it and like all the Speck products it was a pleaser.
