The first time the screen was opened with the case on, the case took a sliver of the black plastic off of the hinge, Nothing huge, but still, I don't want a case that is supposed to protect the computer actually harming it. After checking the area out, I found that the bottom part of the case does not work/fit properly with the screen hinge. When opening the screen it causes the back of the bottom piece of the case to pop off & make a disconcerting snapping noise, which I don't believe should happen.
The title says it is compatible for 2009 models & the one I have is a mid-2009, so it should work. The case could be defective or the title is wrong and it does not support the mid-2009 models. Who knows.
The positive side is that the color and texture is great!
I'm returning this one and going for a different brand.
I got this case because of the color and it's rubberized. Overall, the product is of good quality. However, I can't open up my Macbook Pro as wide as I used to. I can open it to about 100 degrees, which isn't that bad. It seems to easily get fingerprints, but that's nothing a little wet cloth could do. It shipped fairly quickly. I got it 2-3 days after ordering it. The price is reasonable, especially in comparison to Speck and other brand names. I recommend this product. If you are questioning whether to buy it or not, I'd say go for it. Just make sure you compare prices with others first. The case fits well and I don't have to worry about the plastic cracking like my old hard case since this one is rubberized.
This product has made carrying my computer around the house so much easier. It fits my MacBook Pro well and stays on. It's very well made and sturdy. The rubberized finish makes it easy to grip. The cutouts on the bottom allow for good airflow for heat dissipation. The bottom footpads keep grit from scratching wood surfaces. The only drawback for some folks might be that when open, the back of the computer can't be extended as far back. I don't find this a problem however. Additionally, I feel more relaxed when my 9 yr. old grandson uses and carries my computer around the house.
