    Hi I really want a case for my macbook that can be left on all the time to provide protection for my legs, provide protection for the laptop if I drop it while using it and of course provide protection while transporting it. I see the tekstyl omni case and like the idea behind it for the most part, especially the opening in the back that will let heat out, but its not hard on the sides I can't imagine it providing that much protection for the laptop but I'm still leaning towards it.

    I really like the brenthaven core system but none of them are leave on cases. And I can't for the life of me find pictures of the inner core removed from the bags to see what the sleeve is like.

    Does anyone have any pictures of the inner "core" sleeve removed from a newer brenthaven like the fusion MB. And anyone have a decent review of the tekstyl omni from personal usage? I've found a macOPINION review and a neo-fight review but neither of them really covered drop protection and neither has great pictures. It looks like the material the macbook would sit on would scratch the macbook as it looks like its nylon not a soft fabric?

    I also found something from a company called seashore.

    They look a little thin though.

    This company looks a little promising also but I don't really know anything about them. If the product was half that price I'd go ahead and just order but I don't.

    This is a freaking pain in the butt picking out a laptop case.

    Lap saving cases

    Hm. Protection to safely use a laptop in your lap. You would think we'd be a little farther along in the 21st century... anyway...

    I have a Shinza case (http://shinza.com) for my 12" PB made of this great poly shockproof stuff. I would just open the case, leave the laptop in it and put it on my lap. Worked great for me. You could get one of those neoprene cases and put it under the laptop while in use, that might help.

    You might also try using a piece of foam insulation. Easy to cut to size, and you could even make a little slipcase for it. Good luck.
