    I am looking for a high end nice/cool looking designer type of case for my MBA. The only 2 I have seemed to find to fit the bill are these 2, but I am not sure which to choose and would love some input. I really would like a more form fitting case/sleeve, but can't really tell from the pictures which is thinner?

    Vaja Case: http://www.vajachoice.com/id/flash_v1.nsf/Main?OpenPage&codigoProd=nap352rk

    The way their website is set up its kind of a pain. but under Bags>macbook air the red one or the brown one after it, if you click the customize button you can make it seriously ANY COLOR WAY YOU WANT its amazing compared to:

    Do you guys know of any others?

    $189 - $200 for a sleeve that holds nothing but the Air itself? Rip off.
    $60 and I've gotten more compliments on it. It's casual enough to just use daily and dressy enough to use if I have something important to do, like go to court to get child support from my baby daddies.

    I am very glad that I wasn't drinking coffee at the time I first read that, or I'd be opening a thread about removing coffee from (fortunately, I don't take it with sugar or cream) a MacBook Air :D

    Yes, roughly 200 USD for a sleeve is a theft. Period.

    If your just syked about getting one of the two, i would go with a black vaja sleeve. Although, 200$ is way too much

    You want theft? The iPhone case from Vaja that I absolutely love is $280!!! It has Swarovski crystals you know... :rolleyes: I just love it for the style of it, don't care about the crystals. :(

    I bought one of these on Ebay $20; same one.

    Probably around the same as the $200 as it's pretty nice..

    Kind of hard to believe really

    Vaja is amazing. Sena is 2nd rate. I've been pitched by both companies and held their cases in each hand and it's worth it to pay more for vaja.

    Sena tells me there's no difference by price but I don't care. Vaja is just so much cooler.

    Holy crap @ Vaja they had a 13in case that cost pretty much the same amount as MBP its protecting. They even got a 10in netbook case costing almost twice as much as the price of the netbook. Now that is theft in my book. I don't care how good the quality is, those prices are not worth it. The one your looking at isn't price a bit more fair, but still more than I would spend on one.
    This another fairly price one from Vaja. http://www.vajacases.com/home/home_en.html?Prod=notebook-sony-10and13&ini=nva391c&c=5&it=2&s=3

    BS! Sena makes great cases. Yes, the Vajas are nice, but not much nicer than Sena and they cost way more. Go ahead and be a sucker!

    question...

    does the latest macbook air, have the "long-lasting" battery (yet)?

    imo, a sleeve is nice and all but where do you put the power brick?

    carry it in another bag?

    I have a MBP with the "long-lasting battery" and I still bring the power brick. I just put the sleeve in another bag. Needless to say my computer is in excellent condition.

    Marware Cases Mac Book Air


    I have a Mac Book Air and looked at the cases you mentioned. Recommend looking at the Marware Leather Case it's $90.00 and equals both mentioned in my opinion. Have it and like it a lot and a lot lower in cost. A lot!!!!!!!!!! It's called C.E.O. ENVI.

    Also wraped the Air in 3M Clear cover and it still fits in the Case.

    I agree, but remember, many women buy handbags that are worth far more than anything they put inside. Walk downtown in London or any city, and you'll see women with £5000+ handbags. Crazy but there you go.

    With men, it's more spending on flashy cars and gadgets.
