No harm in asking, and you deserve it! Use the code PISTONHEADS for 10% off anything (not just Incase Snap Cases). Any more and I would be in trouble, as we're not meant to give any discounts off new items. There are not many Snap Cases left though as most have gone out to back-order customers today, but about 30 left (Black) and 40 left (Clear).

Hope that helps, James
I'm going to take you up on that for a couple of the incase versions.

What are the MacBook Pro and air see through satin cases like? Can you see the Apple logo on the lid through them?

With the SeeThru Satin cases from Speck for the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, you can see the Apple logo glow through the case when the logo is illuminated. It looks very cool! It's obviously a but more feint through a black case than through a lighter-coloured case.

The other hardshell cases worth checking out before you make a final decision are the 'Incase Perforated Hardshell Case for MacBook Pro' and the 'iGlaze for MacBook Air'.

I won't paste links here for fear of getting into trouble, so I'll leave you to use the search facility on our site.

Hope that helps!

Ordered! Many thanks indeed for the code, much appreciated. Roll on delivery day!
Delivered this morning and now phone is perfectly 'incased' smile

Doesn't seems to come with the handy little stand that the incase 4 had but hoping that the 4 one fits the 5 in it's new case.

Just been looking on Etsy, this one looks quite nice for a touch over £9!

There are different options avaliable, and yes it's a sleeve and not a case but I personally prefer sleeves/pouches.

Any idea when the incase leather snap in brown will be in stock?

I've got a Vapor Pro on my 4S. It is awesome and the handset is like new still. But... I spent $150 dollars on it which is a bit ridiculous! They really are indestructible though, great protection without being unsightly.

I'll hold out on another for the 5, but I may give in!

It was fine actually, it was the iPhone 5 that I didn't like and just sold again on eBay for what I paid for it.

I prefer the size of the 4S, it fits in my hand better and does pretty much all the same things as the 5 so have gone back to one of those smile
