Speck Hard Shell, XGear Case & Key Shield for MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display
If you're looking for a sturdy, long-lasting protective case for your lap top, I can tell you what NOT to buy Speck.
Anything else will be better than Speck, trust me. Only after a few months the plastic Speck hard shell was already breaking apart. It has protected the actual lap top, but the case itself goes to crap right away and it is not worth the money you'll spend.
The XGear Karion faux leather carrying case ( http://xgearlive.com/karion-leather-carry-case-macbook-pro-retina/ ) and keyboard shield are decent products but they also have some negatives. Overall, however, I'm sure the XGear products will prove to be one hundred times better than the Speck shell .
