    that looks exactly like the one I returned to the apple store, it was too tight, note its different where the incase logo is on the other side of where the opening is.

    I hope this is not the one intented for the newest air.

    I have the original case and it's terrible. Doesn't meet at the opening when the case is on. Definitely a company I will avoid in the future

    At the moment I'm having to use the Incase. The actual material is good quality, and the finish etc is also good. The case looks excellent, it just seems to be a design flaw with it.

    I'm going to get a case from Be Ez when I get some money together after Christmas. I've not had the Air long, about a month or so.

    I had a Be Ez case for my Macbook, they have some sort of memory foam material that absorbes any impact and cushions the device. It wont survive a fall, but is very handy if you're carrying it inside a bag where things might bump into it.

    I was thinking of getting a be ez as well.

    But do they make on specifically for the MacBook air?

    The first neoprene sleeve I could find when I got the MBA 11" before Thanksgiving was the STM sleeve. Fits great and is top quality. Very happy with it. I've had InCase sleeves up until this one and it's on par with InCase.

    It was $25 from eBags.

    next time i see the gf, i'll take a photo. i just gave it to her along with a 2010 MBA as a new year's gift.

    or you'll have to wait until another i just ordered arrives. since few have known of this item, i'll do a decent write-up and review of it at that time.

    My STM sleeve dp-2105 for the 11" MBA just arrived. It's nowhere near as nice of a fit as I had with my Tucano Second Skin for my 13" MBA. I'll use it until I can find something better.

    Looks like a great fit. I've heard a lot of 13" owners complaining about a poor fit but because Incase released these sleeves rather recently, what I've heard must've been from new 13" owners who purchased the Incase sleeve for the previous generation Air.

    Thanks for the pics. I'll be buying an 11" Air myself very soon and this is the sleeve I will choose to protect it.

    Hmmm to bad for those 13'' owners. The 11'' case fits perfectly. I strongly recommend it.

    The Moshi Muse looks gorgeous. Alas, I see two issues. First, it seems like it has very minimal padding. Second, the exterior pocket means the computer has to be removed to go through TSA security. Too bad, otherwise seems like a great sleeve.

    Can you describe what type of case a computer can stay in when you send it through the security x-ray?

    Generally one where there isn't something which can obstruct the x-ray view of the laptop. So no pockets, since you could have something in the pocket which obstructs the view.

    Apple store here in the Phoenix area have the incase sleeve for the 11" in stock. $39.00.

    Just a heads up.
