Slickwraps Retro Case protects your iPhone like it's 1984

As a blogger who writes more than his share of reviews of iPhone cases, I get a lot of them at no cost for review purposes. That's why it's a bit surprising that the case I'm currently protecting my iPhone 7 Plus with is one I paid for. With just one look, I knew I had to open my wallet, get out the credit card, and purchase the Slickwraps Retro Case ($36.99) to adorn my iPhone.

Design

The case is actually a standard Spigen Ultra Hybrid case that has been modified with a Slickwraps print. But who cares? The point is, IT LOOKS LIKE AN ORIGINAL MAC!

Sorry about the yelling. Anyway, when a description of this case showed up in my inbox, I jumped to order the darned thing. The case is that lovely Pantone 453 beige that the earliest Macs came in, complete with the rainbow Apple logo and some faux cooling vents. 

Pretty nice looking case, isn't it? And it's certainly a lot lighter, faster, and colorful than the original 16.5 lb Mac 512K I used to lug around in a cloth case.

Function

Who cares about function? It looks good, it has a raised bezel to protect the screen, and there are even little "feet" on the back corners of the case to keep the camera lens from getting scratched on a surface. The sides are clear, and it's only that glorious back of the case that looks "Mac-ish". 

It's listed on the Slickwraps site as a limited-edition case, so you probably want to get yours as soon as possible. The Retro Case is available for the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5S, and iPhone SE.
