    I'm looking for a PREMIUM leather case for a MacBook Pro 15 (new).

    Vaja Cases look very nice (and I have their case for my iphone) - but i want to know if there is anything as nice with a bit more selection.

    I am NOT looking for a sleeve or a bag - I'm looking for a shell type of case. The carbon fiber is not what I'm looking for.

    Any help would be great.

    Regards,

    Tommy W.

    yes, I've seen it - it's kinda cheap - but functional. I'm looking for something that is a bit nicer. The Vaja Case is $280 - the leather is very nice. I have the type of job where showing up with a $30 bag get's you a paper cup as you are walked out the door.

    Thanks for the reply though.

    I'm looking for a nice case for my 15'', as well. Please keep us updated if you find anything else.

    I'm not crazy about the hinge part of the Vaja case... it looks like it'll bend awkwardly when in the "open" position.

    Nice Bag - but ...


    Nice bag - but I'm looking for a cover that is on the MBP all the time (this is referred to a shell type of casing).

    If u can try this one http://www.vajacases.com/

    they have nice range, expensive but leather is good. I had some problem with them before postage is expensive (they base in Argentina). I bought an iphone case custom made, took 30days of handmade craftsmanship. When i got it the perfection of the leather nice and very soft was i was expected. but where their metal logo hole/cut punching (must be accidentally mark the leather look like a hold in it). then i email them, i paid like $100USD + custom letterings $20 + $45 postage to Australia. You know what they said? thats how the leather are. THey are from COW's SKIN, the skin are not 100% perfect but they try best to get best spot.

    Well I would buy more if they could have been abit nicer, say look next order i will give u 20$ off any product u order or something.... i mean i paid 165$ and recieving some what who not care just put a cut. My wife using the case on her phone. Look really nice. the lettering disappear abit but still can see under sunlight.

    But i have to say they have nice range and product display i have seen so far.
    Cheers

    Dont get me wrong, they are best leather cases company. I saw their site from one of the iphone accessories' site. May be its just me that happen to get that dodgy product. I mean i dont intend to ask for refund or anything but all i see my case got a cut/hole inappropriately. They offer me to send it back with in 30days for exchange, they would remake it. I cant be bother at the time waiting another 30days.

    Here some shot of their leather cases for our macbook pro. Still nice, i would still buy if i am in the market. U can chooose any color skin you want (thats the best part). I am still wanting to engrave name at the back of the case :)

    enjoy
