So you’ve got this new, state-of-the-art MacBook Pro, and you want a way to protect it without totally destroying the look of its ever-so-thin industrial design. Well, Hard Candy Cases’ Hard Shell Case for 15” MacBook Pro with Retina Display ($60) is a good start. Available in black, red, lime, and blue, it offers more protection than your typical hard shell while still allowing the laptop’s design to shine through.
It achieves this by utilizing a patent-pending Corner Snap design that encapsulates the MacBook, gripping more securely while offering extra shock absorption thanks to 5.5mm solid corner bumpers. Made from a special blend of hard polycarbonate plastic, it allows the Apple logo to show through while adding a slightly shiny look, and of course it offers open access to all keys, sensors, ports, plugs, and buttons.
