With so many different MacBook cases available to buy, it can be a difficult to decision to choose which one you should get, so we’ve put together a buyers guide to help you. Here’s a couple of things you might want to consider when purchasing a new MacBook case:
Which size case do I need for my MacBook?
So it sounds obvious, but the first thing to do is to ensure you are looking for the right size case, especially with so many different models of MacBook that Apple have released over the last few years. For example, you may be lucky enough to be looking for one of the new 11″” MacBook Air cases , or a slightly larger case for the 13″ MacBook Air. For those who use larger screens, we have specially designed cases for the 15″ MacBook Pro and cases for the 13″ MacBook Pro too. The next question to ask is what style of MacBook cases are available? Here’s a selection of some of the best-selling types on GearZap:
Leather MacBook Cases
Made from premium cow hide, the Urbano Zip Sleeve for the 15″ MacBook Pro is one of our most stylish leather cases. In a beautiful tanned leather, the Urbano sleeve is ultra lightweight and portable ensuring you MacBook will remain stratch free on the move. The inside is made from a super-soft, velveteen ensuring a snug fit and no chance of scratching. The case, which is one of the best selling Urbano cases, clearly has beautiful craftsmanship, and would be the ideal present for someone who has just bought their MacBook and needs a good quality leather case.
The Noreve leather sleeve for MacBook 13″ MacBook or 13″ MacBook pro is one of the most premium brands available on GearZap. The sleeve itself is simply stunning, with beautiful handcrafted leather and meticulous attention to detail. Simplicity and elegance are key to this case’s design, which forms part of our luxury Noreve Cases Range. We also have the 17″ Noreve leather sleeve too.
Tough MacBook Cases
Few products give more of an impression of being rugged than the Cool Bananas Bulletproof for 15″ MacBook Pro. Solidly put together, and designed to be shock resistant, the Bulletproof range are certainly some of the toughest MacBook Cases around. It is also designed to be highly practical, with a shoulder strap and useful carrying handles. The soft inner lining and zipper provide a snug fit, whilst the external case is rugged and tough, ensuring the best protection. This MacBook case also includes a strap to hold your laptop in place and an inside pocket to hold all of your MacBook accessories.
ZeroShock Cases are also renowned for making some of the most durable netbook and laptop cases, and the Zeroshock IV Advanced 13.3″ case is no exception. With their proving ground in Japan, the Zeroshock IV range are used by the US military and NASA, which is a solid backing if ever a case needed one. Coupled with stylish, sleek black designs the ZeroShock cases are super tough, and made to be incredibly resilient, withstanding some of the worst knocks and scratches.
Funky MacBook Cases
So there are a lot of people who are looking for MacBook cases which are a little different, and out of the ordinary. One of the most interesting much surely be the range of foof cases we stock. The one shown above is the Tsunami model, and this 13″ foofbag sleeve is made from gorgeous fabric, with a soft and fluffy sherpa fleece on the inside. Deliberately designed without any zips or catches, your MacBook perfectly slides into the sleeve, providing a snug fit that offers good protection.
One of my personal favourites is this MacBook sleeve shown above from Built NY. This French Vine designed 15″-16″ laptop sleeve is made from thick neoprene, with a soft interior. The sleeve is is not rectangular, but bulges slightly at the edges, ensuring that if you do accidentally drop your MacBook, then the edges (which are the most likely bit to get hit) are extra protected. Style and protection – what more could you want?
