Speck SeeThru SATIN Case for MacBook Air Review and Giveaway seethrugiveawayNow that we’re giving away a MacBook Air, it’s only appropriate that we offer a nice case to accompany it, right? This week, we’ll be giving away five beautiful SeeThru SATIN cases by Speck for the 11″ MacBook Air. We’ll take a look at the case and you’ll have the chance to be in the running to win one by joining our giveaway after the review.


Available from Speck’s website, the SeeThru SATIN case retails at $49.95 and comes in five other colours: clear, cobalt, black, raspberry and clementine. You can also get it for the 13″ MacBook Air at the same price point.

The SeeThru SATIN case is a simple two-piece, plastic hard-shell ensemble that easily snaps on to the MacBook Air. It boasts a silky, rubbery outer finish and as its name implies, the case is transparent and slightly frosted. Measuring at 1.2 mm thick, the case weighs next to nothing — which is ideal for the MacBook Air because portability is key here.

After snapping on the case, I instantly noticed that it provides a grippier surface which makes allows for a more secure hold onto the MacBook Air while maintaining a very low profile. I have to point out that even though the MacBook Air is innately very sexy, the SeeThru SATIN case adds more character and a “fun” element. As you can clearly see, access to every port is unobstructed, which is nice.

At the bottom, the SeeThru SATIN case clips into place and covers the entire surface of the MacBook Air. It even comes with its own rubberised pads that are placed over the MacBook Air’s.

The Speck SeeThru SATIN case for MacBook Air comes in very subtle colours and are quite appropriate for everyday use. It helps to protect the MacBook Air without compromising on weight or portability. The case snaps on and off without any hassle and even assists in providing a better grip support.
