    I am purchasing my macbook pro 13" next week and when I go in I was also going to get some form of protection. I am currently thinking about just a sleeve. This one to be exact http://store.apple.com/au/product/HD148ZM/A/thule-13-stravan-sleeve-for-macbook?fnode=7f48e5e2a6c720293605bd23401803005b30151c14df8eef5b22fb5b0eab7b0f4097bd4044878bc0b202a54206f34901ef230e1d28b90af473bf7e05a8471f99033954a8e7b24a73233dfc5de748d756fde07b3bd854192306b1f27a38971ae289c0a78d3b1f9038d015d1ef625680f6
    Now I don't know much about mac so this is why I ask here. I'm wanting the macbook to stay lightweight but also want it to stay protected. Am I better off getting a shell to protect my macbook pro. I've looked at shells and from what I can see the tech 21 are the best but they are $50 more. Is it worth it? http://store.apple.com/au/product/HD579ZM/A/tech21-13-impact-snap-case-for-macbook-pro-with-retina-display?fnode=7f48e5e2a6c720293605bd23401803005b30151c14df8eef5b22fb5b0eab7b0f4097bd4044878bc0b202a54206f34901ef230e1d28b90af473bf7e05a8471f99033954a8e7b24a73233dfc5de748d756fde07b3bd854192306b1f27a38971ae289c0a78d3b1f9038d015d1ef625680f6

    Both can be found new for fairly cheap on eBay. Do keep in mind the difference between a case and sleeve. A sleeve will thoroughly protect the laptop while you're carrying it but not at all while you're using it, and a case will provide some protection all the time while adding a little bit of thickness to it.
