As soon as I ordered my MacBook Air, I quickly went to WaterField Designs. While I could’ve bought a case from Incase, Etsy, or Timbuk2, I chose a WaterField Designs SleeveCase[1. Horizontal, Lead Indium, add flap, no strap or Piggyback pouch.] for $52.
Several years ago, when I used a bulky Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop, I also bought a SleeveCase from WaterField. I liked it’s durability, design, and simple elegance. I didn’t look anywhere else when I ordered my MacBook Air.
Even though it’s a bit more expensive, high quality means it’ll last for a long time.
Inside my WaterField SleeveCase and “Jack Pack” messenger bag, I feel confident my MacBook Air will be protected from bumps and scratches.
