Hello fellow Air lovers!

i feel i need extra protection for my MBA (13"), however i cant decide between a case (bottom and top speck / moshi thing) or a protective sleeve.

i personally like the idea of a case - it protects the machine even when it used and i dont have to take it in and out of a sleeve every time. however, it adds some weight / bulk (although not much), and it could trap heat.

what do you guys use? guide me through deciding what to get. thanks for your time!

I keep mine in my backpack to and from class. So I don't have either, but I would lean towards a case. Personally, I think sleeves are a bit too flimsy for my liking.
