    So I'm indecisive on getting a sleeve or a hard shell rubberized case for my MBA. What's your guys' opinion?

    I'm stuck between this and this

    Thanks!

    Personally I like the sleeve more. I know a case isn't heavy, but it will add some size to the computer and the whole point is its really small and light. I have a sleeve for when I throw it in my bag traveling, but I like being able to take it out when using it on the bus or in the air on the plane.

    I tend to think that all those cases are very ugly and unpractical so the only option is sleeve. :p

    I personally use Knomo's black leather sleeve with zipper on it. It is also for sale in Apple Stores. It's very soft inside and the quality of the leather on top is very solid.

    Im using a wrapsol and incase sleeve for my air. The Wrapsol adds relatively no weight and thickness to the air while providing the same look as if it were not protected.

    I think this is particularly tricky scenario for Air users because you don't want to negate the benefits of the lighter weight/smaller size, but at the same time, most people would like to have something that they feel adequately protects their "investment".

    I personally prefer a sleeve, but I can understand the case for a case.
