    Anybody know if Incase's Neoprene sleeve fits the dimensions of the late 2008 MBP?

    Yes, they fit.

    The only thing is that you should pay attention when zip/unzip the sleeve - there is a small possibility to scratch the laptop body (or at least I think so - both are from metal).

    People are saying it would be more snug, but I bought one at the Apple store and it was pretty loose. Too loose that I didn't like the way it fit so I returned it.

    "more snug" != "snug"

    They are more snug as compared to how they fit on the previous gen macbook pro, but by no means are they a "super fit."

    What? Really?!? ....thats no good. Do you have one? Mine hasn't arrived yet but that sounds like a recipe for disaster. If thats the case I'll return it...but doesn't sound like Incase would make something that could scratch the laptop.

    anyone know where you can get a nice designed sleeve like the 15" Parra Sleeve incase sleeve for the late 15.4 pro models? x

    was probably going to buy a crumpler sleeve
    unless anyone has experience with them and the late2008 model (too tight too loose?)

    yes i am using one of these now on my new mbp and you really must be careful when putting the mbp in the sleeve and when zipping it because there is a chance that the metal zipper can hit the side and scratch it. I for one am very careful when using it.

    I just got one and It fits pretty well but i think its just a temporary case until some new cases come out that actually are made for the new macbooks

    I went looking for ages for a sleeve for my new MBP before I found one that fit snugly. It's not because it was a new unibody-MBP, it's because half of the cases out there are designed for 2-3 inch thick dell laptops. ;) I eventually found a neoprene one that fit at my local travel shop. They were the only place that had a sleeve that fit snugly. And yes, it does have zippers, but it's not a problem because it has a fabric "flap" over them.

    It looks like the dimensions of the School Hymn & the Gimp Special Edition sleeve are good. I took back a 15"w Gimp sleeve as it was not wide enough. Basically, height and depth seem fine on all 15"w sleeves, the thing to look out for is width, which should be 36.4cm+

    According to InCase, they didn't redesign the sleeve in any way.
