The founder of Hard Candy Cases, Tim Hickman, came up with the first commercially available MacBook Hard Shell when he was running Speck Products, which he founded. Now he has developed a premier Hard Shell for the Apple MacBook Pro 15” with Retina Display.
“I’ve always had a lot of success with Hard Shells for the MacBook. It’s a tricky edge to walk between allowing the coolness of the MacBook to shine through and providing real protection”, said David Adam - Hard Candy Cases co-founder and VP of Design - “This time we wanted to provide true protection and make the product much easier to go on and off.”
The Hard Shell Case has an innovative patent pending corner snap design that encapsulates the MacBook rather than simply clipping on, providing five times the protection of previous hard shells. The new corner snap design also adds 5 times the shock absorbing power with 5.5mm solid corner bumpers. Unlike other hard shell cases that use an aggressive tab or hook to grab onto the computer sides and require bending the plastic, the new snaps also enable users to easily put on or take off the Hard Shell Case.
Hard Candy Cases’ new Hard Shell Case for the Apple MacBook Pro 15” with Retina Display is offered in four fashionable colors (black, red, lime and blue), allowing users chose the color that best fits their style.
- Measured to have a precise form-fit to the MacBook and designed to maintain its’ precision-fit over time.
- Made of a special blend of hard polycarbonate plastic, which provides sturdy protection and a shiny, colorful look!
- The design allows notebooks to open and close completely, and provides access to all keys, sensors, ports and plugs and buttons through specifically engineered cutouts.
- Offered in four vibrant colors allowing users to match their personal style.
