Maybe I'm misunderstanding things...but I used to have a 2007 17" MacBook Pro (before the Unibody MacBook Pro's) that I also had a Speck hardshell case for. And now I have an "Early 2011" 17" MacBook Pro also with a Speck hardshell case.

Speck has been in business since 2001...and Speck has been making hardshell cases for Macintosh laptops for a long time. Like I mentioned...Speck made hard shell cases for the pre-Unibody 17" MacBook Pros (I had a 2007 17" MBP with a Speck hard case)...and Speck made hard cases for Unibody 17" MBP's (I have one).

Believe me...Speck made a case for your 17" MBP. They're just hard to find...since they are no longer made.

I did a quick e-Bay search...why wouldn't these work?:

Speck SPK A1183 See thru Hard Shell Clear Case for MacBook Pro 17" | eBay
Speck SPK A1183 See thru Hard Shell Clear Case for MacBook Pro 17" | eBay
Speck SPK A1184 See thru Satin Hard Shell Case for MacBook Pro 17" in Black | eBay

I actually have the Speck black Satin case. But I didn't pay anywhere near the $130 the e-Bay seller is asking for it! These guys know that these things are no longer made...so they are charging a TON for them!!!
