    I bought a black leather/green felt sleeve from Joli originals - expensive, but oh so nice! :)

    Get the incase sleeve. It, being a slipcover, covers everything including the sides. The ACME sleeve is good too.

    I'm struggling to imagine a case that was 'difficult to use' :p

    If you want a leather sleeve, I highly recommend this one:

    It's as nice as the Jolly, but much cheaper, and is of superb quality!

    I'm not understanding what the fuss of over the zippers is. Have they really been known to scratch the aluminum casing or is it that just paranoia?

    Because as far as I know, the zippers are protected by another lining of inner-stitched padding. See photo.

    I can't speak to it happening personally because this is my first Mac and I've had it for all of 2 days. However, a co-worker of mine has last year's Air with a zippered sleeve and has scratched his several times on the zipper. As always, YMMV.

    Do you know what kind of case (brand) he was using?

    IIRC, he uses one of the Incase Neoprene sleeves, like this.

    Ok. So actually, that case you link is for the Macbook (though it fits the Macbook Air) which would mean there's some extra room and slips around in the case. Maybe that's what caused the scratches?

    Possibly. I think that's his model, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Well that case isn't meant for the Macbook Air so if he had any problems thats on him. The one that Incase makes for the air actually has no zippers at all, instead they use a slit in the case about 3/4 of the way up then you slip in over the top of the Mac. I have the same case for my MBP and the zipper has cause zero damage and I'm not worried it will either. They really made sure that wouldn't be a problem when designing that thing.
