    Hey!

    I just bought my very first 13'' macbook and I LOVE IT!!!!!
    The only thing I need now is a case for it....

    I'm looking for something that will fit perfectly, light but durable, mostly I will put my mac inside another bag that I carry around so a sleeve would probably be best......maby one that has an option to carry by itself incase I want to carry just the mac.... possibly with extra zippers to put stuff in, and ofcourse it has to look sleek;)

    Any ideas?????

    Thanks!

    Incase MacBook Sleeve It's a good minimalistic sleeve and it's pretty good looking too. Oh yea it also protects your macbook.

    I have a STM Glove and I love it. It fits perfectly for when I want to carry my Macbook around in another bag. Check out my review here.

    I've been using the Marware Sportfolio 13" since I bought my MB last September. It's thinly padded, like most other sleeves, but also has a plastic inner frame, which I find lacking in other brands. Because it's thin enough to use as a sleeve, I put it inside my messenger bag with my other papers, files, equipment, etc. However, it also has a handle, a shoulder strap, and some external pockets, so it also serves well as a stand-alone bag.

    Main reason why I purchased it: I used the Marware Sportfolio II for my iBook G4 for three years. About a year ago, a friend played a prank on me, which accidentally resulted in dropping my iBook (inside its Sportfolio) four vertical feet onto a concrete ground. The Sportfolio got a small tear on the outside, but my iBook survived without a scratch. That was enough to convince me to buy another Sportfolio when I obtained my MB.

    Here's a link to the Marware site.

    Hope that helps.

    For max protection, there really isn't anything better than a Shinza Zeroshock. I've owned three of these (12" iBook, 13.3" MacBook, and a 12" X60s [ThinkPad]) and recommend them VERY highly. I'll never carry another laptop around without one.

    I second the Sportfolio bag/sleeve. I use it still for my iBook and I've convinced a few other people to get it for their macs.

    I went to the link (nice bag, by the way) and saw the below:

    Code:
    FEATURES:
    
        * Large secure interior pocket for business essentials
        * Plastic inserts and edge padding for maximum protection
        * Easy-grip bottom for carrying as a folio
        * Roomy exterior pockets
        * Rugged neoprene outer construction
        * Dual, lined zippers for easy opening
        * Comfortable carrying handles
        * Temporarily out of stock.
    
    "Temporarily out of stock" is a feature? LOL.

    incase bag

    I love the incase bag but some people said it left gray marks on their white macbook so that's not a good thing...too bad I like this bag:(

    any thing else like it that doesn't stain the macbook????
    thanks:)
