Speck SeeThru Case

On February 17, 2011, in Cases, Macbook, Macbook Pro, Review, by Max Swisher
Speck SeeThru Case
Company: Speck Products
Price: $49.95

We have cases for our phones, iPods, and tablets. But your laptop shouldn’t go unprotected either!
The Speck SeeThru Case is one of the only hard cases for Macs that doesn’t limit the range of motion of your lid. Many other different cases will limit the range and not allow you to open the lid of your computer fully, but not this one. The Speck SeeThru Case is a hard plastic that is totally see thru. This is really cool because you can hardly tell that the case is on the computer, but you still have your computer totally protected.

Three cases from speck

So I went looking for other cases, and the first place I went was Speck! I have one of their cases on my MacBook Pro, and another on my iPod touch, and really like them both, so what better place to start. Speck has a few new designs out for the iPhone 4, and I looked at three different cases.
