Just ordered a top end MBA 13" w/ i7 in it. Wondering if folks can suggest carrying cases/sleeves for this. I want to protect my investment.

Not a fan of the second skin one I've seen. Booq and SFBags, while they seem to be super nice, break the bank. Incase is boring.

Others I might not know about?

i like the bookbook by twelve south. and also there is a leather sleeve made by chinao i think, but i don't remember the name, that looked kind of nice. i think i saw it on ebay. Thule TAS-113 13" MacBook Sleeve looks good too.

I will not be that mobile with it in the immediate future and I have things, albeit they are the wrong size, that I can put it in if I absolutely have to.

I'd rather not drop $90+ for a case but I do want something decent. I do reallllly like booq stuff though

BookBook is kinda a neat idea but I don't really care for the look of it.

I like my leather case from Aligata. very pricey, but a great product.

I use the Acme Made for my 13". Super skinny and nice padding.

Went with Booq viper hard case.

Booq never disappoints. I kinda forgot about them because you don't see them a lot.

Only problem is the thing's on backorder. It should ship the day I get my Air.
