If you’ve bought a new Macbook Pro with Retina display, chances are that you want to protect its delicate aluminum skin from scratches and even shocks. The Hard Candy Hard Shell Case for Apple’s 15″ MacBook Pro Retina may be the solution that you were waiting for. There are currently no hard case (that we know of) that provides an easy snap-on experience, and it is clear that a number of users would rather avoid using a film protection which is annoying to install.
The Hard Shell Case for Apple’s 15″ MacBook Pro Retina is not a typical hard case that mainly protects the skins of scratches and dent. Its design can also absorb shocks from drops, a little bit the same way cars are designed to fold on impact. While the case does add a bit of bulk to the laptop, this is something worth thinking about. The first samples will ship in September, and at this point this is a neck to neck race between Speck and Hard Candy, which may end up shipping first. The Hard Candy for Macbook Pro with Retina display case is available for pre-order in four colors: Black, Red, Blue and Lime – but no transparent/clear version. What do you think?
