Protect the finish of your new 12" Apple MacBook® Polycarbonate Hard Case Cover for 12-inch MacBook from Monoprice!
This two-piece cover snaps onto the upper and lower halves of your new 12" MacBook with USB-C connector. The cover is made of polycarbonate and features a comfortable, silky smooth-touch surface, with cutouts on the sides for the controls and connectors.

The feet on the bottom are designed to raise it off the desk/table a little more which actually helps cool the laptop inside but it does add a little bit more bulk, but it's not that bad.
The case has a thin, rubberized coating on it to help with gripping the laptop which is nice but it does add a bit of a dull sheen to the whole thing. (I knew it was like this before I bought it so it's not like I was surprised.)
The material feels sturdy and you can tell that a lot of care was put into the design since the to halves of the shell fit so perfectly together.
Case in point, there are thin plastic clips (for lack of a better word) that hold the shell to the body of the laptop and while these are very small and don't really get in the way, the opposite half of the shell has thin notches shaved out to make sure the shell doesn't get in the way of the laptop closing.
On a side note, I had noticed prior to getting this shell that this new macbook was a bit hard to open some times as there was little material for my fingers to grip, but the grip-y nature of this shell has alleviated that. Added bonus!
PROS: Sturdy material, Good grip, Actually seems to help reduce heat, Very easy to install, Doesn't really make the laptop much bigger, Makes it much easier to open the laptop oddly
CONS: The feet on the bottom add a little extra bulk, I wish it was completely clear
PROS: Not expensive, fits well, looks fine, goes on easily, sticks to my laptop desk so that it doesn't fall.
PROS: Excellent value vs. the big box stores or specialty online retailers. Protects the Macbook nicely and gives it a bit of size and grip that otherwise would't be there.
