Since I haven’t been blogging recently, many of you probably have forgotten that purple is my favorite color. Well, today I bought a cool case for my aluminum unibody Macbook that makes it into a purple gadget of sorts. It’s a two-piece case from Speck called the SeeThru Satin hard-shell case. It’s quite easy to install, just pop the appropriate pieces on the notebook lid and the main body, and you’re good to go. There are a few inconspicuous tabs on each piece that latch on to the notebook to keep the covers in place. It’s easy to remove so that you can occasionally clean off the inside of the case, which they recommend doing to avoid debris from accumulating in between the cover and the notebook. But it’s not so easy to take off that the pieces aren’t secure. As stated by the product name, the case has a satin finish which helps the whole package feel a bit more grippy when on your lap, or when carrying, which is a nice feature. We’ll see how well the case holds up to smudging, bumps, and scratches in everyday use. So far I’m liking it, especially because it makes my Macbook look different from others (the glowing apple on the notebook lid can still shine through the case, and it looks pretty cool in purple).
