I recently got this case. It manages to be both light and protective. The only problem is that my new Air that is destined to occupy the case is still in the Fedex facility in Shanghai.
This is what i just purchased and received for my mba! the padding is pretty good i think and its not very thick but it looks nice and feels nice too! it has a cloth like hard texture ?
Ive currently got my eyes on this case http://store.apple.com/us/product/H...fnode=MTY1NDA2Ng&mco=MjI1ODQyNzU&s=topSellers
Since i'm going to a high school that has sort of a bad reputation for stealing things, I thought that I might be able to disguise my Mba as a book.
Linked to the Canadian site since I buy in Canada.
I got one of these today. It's awesome. The materials are great. The Air is a perfect fit. They make these for Pros and both sizes of the Air.
The carrying handles are made of a high quality material that feels and looks like an expensive car's seatbelt quite a bit. The inside is all fuzzy and soft (so if dirt or sand gets in, the fuzzy soft material keeps the sand or dirt from being pressed and rubbed against the Air and scratching it up).
Overall an awesome case. I'd recommend it.
are there any nice messenger style bags for the mba that will also hold a few text books or a folder?
