15” MacBook Pro Retina Hard Case Unveiled by Hard Candy Cases

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Hard Candy Cases debuts a premier Hard Shell Case for Apple’s new MacBook Pro 15” with Retina Display. Hard Candy’s Hard Shell Case provides users with eye-popping color and five times the protection in a form-fitting shell that is easy to take on and off. In addition to the Hard Shell Case for the Apple 15” MacBook Pro Retina, the Hard Shell Case is available for the Apple 11” MacBook Air and the Apple 13” MacBook Air.

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 to choose the color that best fits their style.

Additional Features:

  •     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, plugs and buttons through specifically engineered cutouts.
  •     Offered in four vibrant colors allowing users to match their personal style.

Hard Shell Cases for the Apple 15” MacBook Pro Retina, Apple 13” MacBook Air and Apple 11” MacBook Air retail for $59.95. They are available for pre-order on http://www.hardcandycases.com and will ship September 2012.
