    Booq Vyper M2

    Could anyone who uses a Booq Vyper M2 sleeve for the mbp comment on the
    following questions, please:

    1.) How well does the Booq Vyper M2 sleeve fit the mbp? Is there any chance
    for the mbp to move around?

    2.) How well is the mbp inside the Booq Vyper M2 sleeve protected from the zipper?

    I have the Booq Vyper for my MacBook, which is essentially the same thing, just a smaller size. It's a real nice case. It stretches a little after you use it a few times, and if I hold it really loosely and move it back and forth I can feel the MacBook move around a little back and forth inside it.

    It has protection from the zipper, there's a cloth around the inside so it's not really possible for it to hit the computer. Don't worry about that.

    Overall it's nice, but it won't protect your computer from a fall like a Neoprene sleeve or something like that will. The computer doesn't "feel" super protected in it. I think it's more made to put inside a protective backpack or something and just prevent it from being jostled around and scratched up.

    I would say, its nice, but for the price, I don't really recommend it. I used a coupon code I found on the internet and got like $10 off, making it worth it for me. Look for some codes before you order.

    Finally I have arrived.....
    I have the sleeve from Marware as I purchased a protection package plus from them. It domes with wrist rest areas protection cover, screen protector (MF cloth on the keyboard). I like the tight fitting sleeves as that will provent the accidental opening and can serve as the scratch prevention when I put it in the actual computer bag (or the larger sleeve-type bag).

    I'm trying to find a sleeve that will accomodate a mbp with a speck case on it. My understanding is that the speck case works well to prevent scratches, but won't protect against harder knocks. Hence, I'd like to find a protective sleeve as well. I was thinking the Tom Bihn "brain" would work...any other advise or thoughts would be great.

    I'm ordering the Tom Bihn brain cell. it looks awesome! i've heard nothing but good things about it. I'm gonna get the vertical brain cell so it'll fit in my regular bookbag alot better.

    I don't want to hi-jack the thread, but I just bought this case for my 15" MBP and couldn't be happier...:


    its only $25 and is absolutely perfect... I use it inside of my Booq Python XM....

    I haven't seen anyone poste about the case-mate cases before, I just stumbled across them and thought I'd give it a try and I'm very satisfied.

    EDIT: I don't want this to seem like an ad for htem - I have no affiliation other than a happy customer, but I do love the case!
