I thought I'd like this case, but in person it made an even better impression. One pleasant surprise was its lightness, which became noticeable as I pack my keyboard back and forth from work to home. Thanks to the magnets I'm never worried about the top unexpectedly coming off, and at the same time removing it intentionally is effortless. Using the top as a wrist wrest doesn't work for me, as I don't like the feeling of my hands being so close to the outermost edges. Instead I usually keep the lid turned up on my desk, and use it to hold transient items. It's especially good for keeping pens / dry erase markers nearby as they can't roll away. I went with the walnut, and its grain, color, and finish is exquisite.
Would recommend to a friend.
