Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of having an ultra thin notebook?
Some are really thin. I just used an STM Jacket, I can take out when I use it. Not going to get it all dented up carrying it around with me.
Just a sleeve I slip it in when traveling, otherwise it's naked as can be. Got my MBA 11" in December of 2010. Nary a scratch on the thing. I find shells and cases completely unnecessary. The rubber feet protect the bottom from rubbing up against any surfaces. And if you just take care of the thing, the rest of it will be fine as well.
I took mine off and left it naked. I leave the house with it everyday. No dents.
I've put a Speck SeeThru Satin on my MBA. Gets thrown around as a work and play machine, so needs some level of protection for me really. Spotless beneath the shell, which takes an hammer the Air might get if it wasn't wrapped.
The shell itself doesn't really add much weight or bulk at all, and the anti-roll feet on the back stop it from getting pushed over.... great piece of kit and worth wrapping round your Air if you're at all worried.
AS ever, it's YMMV and all that and very much personal taste.
Mine is 100% naked, apart from a slim sleeve that I keep it in during my commutes. I always keep my products naked. I don't see the point in covering something up to prevent scratching if you're never going to enjoy the nice surface anyway. If it comes to it - enjoy it as it is naked, and then maybe cover up the scratches (if you're unfortunate enough to get them) afterwards.
Quoted for truth. Even more so with beautifully designed Apple products. Plus... a good patina on modern electronics can look as good as some worn in leather boots.
I have seen some Airs with Speck Satin. They look very hot.
I had a clear coat shield (like zagg but better) on my 11-inch 2011 Air. I'm debating for my 2012 13 when it arrives. leavening to iCarbons. Liked how that came out on iPad
I use an Incipio Feather
Just the job in a Matt Red
I'm not a "case" guy, as I want to retain the thin profile. I do, however, like to avoid scratches. My favorite skin right now is the brushed aluminum from icarbons. It does a great job of protecting from scratches, and retains the look of the base product, while adding a bit of "grip".
I prefer my Macbook Air in all its NAKED glory
I do carry it in a Joli sleeve, though. when not in use
I also have a Joli sleeve too. Such a lovely sleeve.
No shell/case for me, I love my macbook air nude
Lots of negative reviews for the Speck Satin on Amazon. For a clear case, this seems to be the winner (not to mention cheaper): http://www.amazon.com/iPearl-mCover...722609&sr=1-11&keywords=incase+macbook+air+13
I also use and can recommend: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004ZAAFJ2/ref=wms_ohs_product
