Does anyone have this sleeve for the 11" Macbook Air? I paid $39.95 for the Incase one from the Apple store and I don't like how tight it is and how you have to slide the Macbook in from the top. Then I saw on Speck's website the Pixelsleeve and it looks really nice. Is it hard to get the MBA in it? What is the inside of the sleeve made out of. Can anyone post some good pictures of it? I can order it off Amazon.com for $22 shipped with a $10 credit I have so I could save $23 if I take the Incase one back. I just wanted to get some impressions of it before I did it. Thanks.

I have a thread started about that sleeve for the 13" Air. I was looking at the TrimSleeve or the PixelSleeve Air. I was trying to decide which one to order. Judging by the pictures on the website and the way the air sits in the sleeve, it looks like the Pixel doesn't fully cover the air? I'm not sure. I ended up ordering the TrimSleeve. I really didn't want a neoprene exterior.

Ordered from Amazon. Shipping was from 2-5 weeks. It's not in stock. I have an est shipping date of May 5, 2011 - May 25, 2011. That's ok, I'm not in any hurry. Plus I get free super saver shipping.

The pixel sleeve completely covers the air. It's not to tight but a good fit. I would recommend. The lining is really soft micro fibre kind of thing. It also has no zip so no chance of scratching the mba!

I like the way the TrimSleeve looks and I like how it has the "easy pull out tab" thing but I don't like how leaves some of the MBA exposed. Also I need a case right away because I take my MBA to class everyday so I went ahead and bought the Pixelsleeve from Amazon today. I had a $10 credit so I only paid $22 after 1 day shipping. It'll be here tomorrow, I'm looking forward to seeing how it is. I'll post pics and impressions when it comes tomorrow.
