MacBook Case Reviews
You just got a shiny new MacBook Pro or MacBook Air, lucky you. I know it seems counterintuitive but we buy Apple products for their beauty and simplicity of design and the first thing we do is look for some case or cover to put them in or put on them
If you think about it how much of your life is stored on your laptop? So, if you leave it on the roof of your car and drive away you don’t want it to be damaged when it inevitably falls to the ground. Hopefully something like this doesn’t happen to you. One of the best things you can do to protect your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro is invest in a case or a sleeve for your new Mac. In this post I will be reviewing several MacBook Cases of all types and in all price ranges so there will be something for everyone and anyone.
Three Types Of Cases For Your MacBook
- Hardshell Case
- Backpack or Bag Type Case
- Living Dangerously
If you look at this list the last item on the list is living dangerously and to me that is not really an option. Put simply you are walking around with a new MacBook that cost upwards of two thousand dollars in some cases not to mention the value of all the data that’s stored inside. If you think of what is on your laptop to me it’s pictures, it’s business files, music everything. One of the first things you should buy as a new MacBook owner in my opinion is a Hardshell case. There are so many choices out there in the marketplace how do you really choose? There are lower end hardshell cases for people who just really want to carry their MacBook from their desk to the table in the kitchen at their house. So if you are that person you really don’t need that much protection so just getting one of the cheaper hardshell cases is fine for you. You are just trying to protect your MacBook from the occasional drop or bump but then there are people who are going to be taking their MacBook everywhere from work to every coffee shop in town.
MacBook Sleeves are a really great option for people who carry their MacBook around a lot. So if you are walking to and from your car or into different work sites or client sites then I would recommend getting a MacBook Sleeve. For a greater level of protection I would carry my MacBook in a Hardshell case in a Sleeve. This way your Mac is protected from harder drops from just carrying it around. Then when you do take it out of the sleeve you have the protection of the hardshell.
MacBook Sleeves I Recommend
Backpacks or Bags For Your Macbook
If you are a student or someone who is always on the go with their MacBook you will definitely need a backpack or some type of padded bag for your MacBook as well as all of the other stuff you need to carry for work or school or just your life. One thing nice about Laptop bags and Mac bags in particular is in the old days of laptops they all came in one color black. So if you liked black that was great but if you had any sense of style or wanted something different too bad. That’s not the case anymore there are many styles and colors to choose from.
The Best Protection For Your MacBook
Truly the best protection for your MacBook is a hardcase put in a MacBook sleeve then when you are going place to place you put the sleeve in a backpack or padded bag that is actually made for a laptop. Which means it is made especially for your MacBook.
The Best Backpacks or bags For Your MacBook
This is my list of the best choices for Cases Covers and Bags for your new Macbook. Any of the items on this list will serve you well. As for my personal setup that I use day to day.
I have a Speck hardcase in a Snugg Leather Sleeve and for carrying everything around I like the Belkin Slim 15″ Notebook Backpack. This setup works great on my bike around town or going to different worksites. Good luck to you with whatever you choose. Whatever you do Don’t live dangerously.
