Review from an Amazon reader:

5 stars Really understandable
Really easy to understand, I have a MacBook Air 13” and it’s perfect for that (and MacBook Pro’s). Visually it looks good and is understandable, I was apprehensive about buying it cause there were no reviews when I was looking but it’s definitely worth buying.
