Tried two other brand cases, one cracked the other didn't allow MacBook to shut properly. This Vista one fits perfectly. I chose the clear case as I wish to see the colour of the MacBook (Starlight). It only adds 224g to the weight of the laptop which is fine. It is thin so doesn't add much bulk. Lid closes properly and opens all the way. Easy to instal (and take off). Doesn't show fingerprints and I hope in the long run doesn't scratch. Feels premium and of high quality. Very happy with first impressions.
I hadn’t realised I was ordering from Australia, but despite the air miles to the UK and the slight wait; I really love this case. Seems very well made and the pattern is brilliant. Every time I see my laptop or get it out in public I’m proud of how it looks. More personal and also protected.
This was a gift for my Granddaughter and she was thrilled to receive it!
Macbook Rugged Armor Heavy Duty Case
I got this this the day before I DJ’d a prom because I had this feeling (call it intuition) that someone might knock it off my stand and they did! The laptop fell approximately 4’ and nothing happened to it at all! My only gripe is that the laptop doesn’t shut completely flat like it does on my Thule case, but it doesn’t affect its ability to shut down completely. I also noticed that the laptop is raised a bit higher off of the ground compared to my other case. I assume this is good for airflow etc. but it doesn’t allow me to angle the laptop’s keyboard downward the way I like because it will slide off. This is just as much a flaw of the dj stand (the lip on the dj stand should be higher imo) it sits on, but for every day use this is awesome and better looking than cases I’ve owned in the past. Easy to install as well.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Has this case damaged the hinges located on the back of the screen?
The case doesn't impede the hinge in any way, the bottom shell of the case is almost 1cm back from the hinge so when the computer is open all the way there is still some 'breathing room' between the top & bottom of the case.
Is this case like rubberized or is it just a hard plastic?
Hard plastic, and the fit is perfect. I love it.
does this case have a company logo anywhere? because i hate any logo on the case.
Nope, the only logo is the one from the apple.
Do the brackets that hold the bottom case on create an uncomfortable/sharp edge below the trackpad? Other cases have felt rough against palms/wrist.
I didn't even notice until you mentioned it! The plastic is smooth and minimal, but still holds the case on. It hasn't been an issue at all!
Is the bottom cover silicone or hard plastic?
It is hard plastic.
Does the lid fold back past the 45 angle?
It flips as much as your laptop does
does this case make your laptop heavier?
No its very light weight, almost like a gel cover for your phone.
Does the case scratch the computer when you take it off/on?
I was interested so popped mine off for the first time since attaching it. There wasn't a scratch to be found!
how do you clip the bottom part ?
you have to hook it to the back part first and then it just clips in underneath.
does the Apple logo show through it?
Yes it does. I have the space gray MacBook and space gray cover and it shows. It’s not fully opaque but you can see it.
What’s the difference between Crystal & Frost Clear?
The difference is the look, the crystal is colored but more see through, the frost is more opaque.
Does this case make the macbook pro heavy?
Not really. The slight increase in weight cannot really be perceived.
Can I just use the top part of it?
Yes, you can use the top only.
Would the stickers on my laptop show through this case?
If you want stickers to show then have a matte clear or crystal clear case.
Which one of these colors is most clear? i have stickers on my macbook and i’d like to be able to still see them through the case.
I'm guessing the clear, you can barley see the Apple logo in my 2017 MacBook and I have matte black.
Is this unit easy to use?
Yes, very simple to attach to the MacBook. Just snaps on easy. Good fit.
does this cover show the apple logo?
I got the matte pink, and the Apple logo shows through.
Is this case strong enough to protect the laptop?
From dropping it probably not but from something small falling onto the top of it or a small spill maybe. I think it's mostly to protect against small dings and scratches.
How is the quality of it?
The quality is very good. It’s thin, translucent ,and very durable.
What’s the difference between frost matte clear and crystal?
Crystal looks as if there is no cover on it at all, clear as glass. Frost you can see through, but has a frost cast to it. I got the crystal one. I like being able to see the computer. It fits perfectly and was easy to put on. I like the smooth edge feel, as opposed to the sharper edges of my MacBook Pro. I love this cover!
Should the bottom case not cover the bottom corners under the hinder?
That's correct. The bottom back corners are uncovered. Otherwise, you may not be able to open macbook cover 90 degrees.
Would I still be able to fit it in my laptop sleeve with the case on?
Not sure since I don’t know the specs of your sleeve but the case is very slim/thin so unless your sleeve is super tight I’m guessing it will fit.
Does the case wear down over time?
The case fits perfectly. Check if it is completely docked. Fit in from back to front. You will hear lile a "click".
This wouldn’t scratch my laptop during application, would it?
Not at all. The cover only clasps the laptop on its edge not the screen and the plastic is softer than the aluminum body of the laptop.
does dust/dirt get under the edges of the clear case very easily? also, does it discolor over time?
I didn’t have an issue with it discoloring at all. Dust will accumulate over time but it wasn’t noticeable until I took the cover off at which point it was easy to wipe down.
Does this case turn yellow over time like most clear phone cases?
No. Not at all. The one I bought was pink and still looking great!
Is this case water repellent?
It is made of hard plastic. so yes, it is.
With the black case do you see a lot of fingerprints?
depending on how greasy your fingers are. If you keep your hands washed there will be minimal smudging. If not then yes.
With this case on, can the MacBook still fully open up (past a 90 degree angle) or does the case restrict this?
Yes, you can open like without the case, it opens approximately up to 125 degree. but you will not be able to use an USB adapter that connects directly into the port (without a cable).
How should i clean this case?
I’d recommend just using a simple wet wipe or even a Lysol wipe.
Does the Marsala red feel plasticy or has a runner feeling to it?
It is more like a matt feel, not glossy or glassy at all. It looks very sleek and subtle.
Does the case provide a lot of protection?
This case provides all the protection you need to keep your MacBook like new. I bought this for my 13 year son and after 6 months it still looks brand new and he’s not careful with his things. It had done a good job protecting his MacBook Air
Does this cover up the speakers or affect the sound quality when playing music?
It doesn’t affect the sound at all.
Does this case add any weight to the Macbook?
Not significant gain. Here is the specification.
11" Air (2010-2015) - 7.2oz / 205g 12" Macbook (2015-2019) - 6.17oz / 175g 13" Air (2008-2017) - 9.84oz / 279g 13" Air (2018-2019) - 7.68oz / 218g 13" Pro (2016-2019) - 7.76oz / 220g 15" Pro (2016-2019) - 11.46oz / 325g 13" Pro (2012-2015) - 8.60oz / 244g 15" Pro (2012-2015) - 13.54oz / 384g
When I purchase a MacBook Case do I receive a bottom case?
Yes. For the color case, the color of bottom part matchs with the front case. for the cases with pattern on it, the bottom part of the MacBook Cases is matte clear, we do not and will not print on the bottom case as this is where all the vent holes are to keep your mac from overheating.
What is the material and texture of the case?
The Macbook case is hard plastic. Solid-colored and pattern cases have a matte or satin finish.
Can I print my own design?
Yes. You're welcomed. Just send your artwork to us.
Does the Apple Logo shine through clearly, or is it fuzzy and hard to see clearly?
Transparency is different from color to color, Black or Pattern are nontransparent.
Is the clear color a frosted one or crystal one?
We have both Frosted and Crystal clear.
Will your MacBook cases fit all MacBook models?
No, due to different models and sizes, they are not compatible with the same case. You should double check your MacBook model before you purchase. To ensure that you are ordering the correct case, please check our Model Size Guide to ensure that your MacBook is included on our fit list.
