Incase neoprene sleeve for MacBook 13

Anyone use this sleeve for their MacBook air? It's made for the MacBook I'm curious to know how it fits

I don't have the current version, but I have the one designed for the original MacBook Air. It fit the older one slightly better but works with either. It's a snug fit, and it takes a little while to get used to it. The main thing is that getting the top part of the flap over the notebook takes a bit of work at first until the fibers are broken in a little.

That said, it's a good solution for protecting the MacBook Air inside another bag, such as the front pocket of a notebook case or the flap of a suitcase.

Pretty sure it will fine but it won't be a tight fit, obviously. Would make a nice case if you're planning to use a thin sleeve on the Air.

It's the one with a zipper

This one http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/...feeabe185een02

Will the zipper scratch it?

I didn't catch the "MacBook" in the title of your original post. I was thinking the sleeve for the 13" MacBook Air. That one is a tight fit. I don't have any experience with the one for the base MacBook.

Yeah, I peeped it out at the Apple Store, and I just think its too tight, especially since I want a sleeve that I can quickly pull the Air out of with much hassle.
