View Full Version : Magnets on a cover - an issue?

Nov 24, 2011, 06:28 AM
Just ordered this as I think it looks nice and secure but just suddenly wondering if the magnets used to close it will be an issue?

Can the effect the harddrive or anything and also what about when going through a scanner at the airport? Any thoughts?


It is a Chinao leather macbook sleeve for the 13" as sold by *******dotcom

Dont worry it actually takes a hefty magnet to wipe a hdd

Airs have SSD's which are not affected my magnetism, also those type closures are not powerful enough to damage anything so no worries. Also Aiport scanners are X-ray and these won't affect computers either.
