Hi I've just bought a new 13" MBA and I'm really pleased with my purchase! I was just looking to protect it with a felt case, possibly for under 30. I've tried looking on other threads but it's not brought anything that I'd like. Many thanks for your help!

What kind of thing you looking for? I went with this:

The other option is something thicker like the Incase Sleeve Plus:

I have an Incase Black Perforated Hardshell Case and love it! Great protection, cool to the touch, and looks pretty good.

theres the hard graft ones, but go on etsy and search there, i found a tone and there cheaper than the hard graft ones, also the manufacturers typically let you customize if you want

I really like the look/feel and quality of the Tucano Second Skin Microfibre but it appears no-one in the UK sells them and the only way to get it is direct from Italy and then it will end up costing ~40 which is just silly money

I'm pretty sure Amazon, Best Buy etc sell them?

Not in the UK they don't :( They list some of the colours with a 1-2 month delivery but grey one is not listed at all. They have the normal second skin which have MACBOOK AIR plastered all over it (I don't really want to advertise to the world what I am carrying).

Thats the one designed for the Macbook not the Macbook air and thus its not a very snug fit with it being half the thickness of a Macbook

Well i'm still looking for a suitable case for my mba 13"

Everyone who posts is American and they have some great bags / cases over there but cost to ship to UK with taxes is ridiculous.


I just need a compact 13" case (ideally made for the air so it isn't bulky) with a small pocket for the adapter for a decent price. I'm not going to pay in excess of 50 for a feckin laptop bag.

its suited for the mba 13" and theres another for 11"
