    What do you all recommend as the best shell or other case to protect my new MBA?

    The Speck in your favorite color. But I personally prefer it naked. :cool:

    People claim that the specks crack, mine hasn't yet so you can take that gamble.

    For something more durable, Incipio makes the feather line.

    I've had a Speck case for my earlier MacBook & now I have one on my Air. I've never had them crack, and love the look & feel of them on the MacBooks.

    Just Found This

    Looks pretty cool...Seems a lot of Speck stuff is sold out here in the UK. Anyone tried one of these?

    they don't offer any impact resistance but they'll do the job for scratches

    Another Speck user here - I too prefer the MBA 'naked' but I'm big, clumsy git so the shell's staying for now! If a nice Carbon Fibre skin were available, I'd be very tempted, I think some are in development but I'm happy with the Speck for now.
