    Booq are the best IMHO. Their line designed for the new mb/mbp will be available on the 25th of november. Look at the Taipan for neoprene or the Vyper for ballistic nylon.

    There are a few "cheapo" brands who have wacked together versions for the new models already but I have looked at a few and I would definitly wait for the Booqs.

    I actually think this one is better - 'Larobe'. Its got overall BETTER reviews than the Incase sleeve and its actually shipping in 24 hours unlike the Incase where it says 1-2 weeks :D

    I've ordered an Applesac though :D

    The STM Glove is my favourite. It's simple and has a zipper guard to prevent the zipper from damaging your Macbook.

    Incase has one that was for the old model, but it still fits quite well on the new one. Also, Applesac is popular amongest some crowds, but its definitely a love/hate kinda thing.

    i thought i hated apple sac but after looking at the black one its really grown on my, but my only concern is does it really protect it from anything besides scratches or is that what all sleeves basically are for. to protect from scratches. i am thinking of getting an apple sac and a notebook backpack as well. :apple:

    Or you could go with just a generic case it doesnt have to be brand name you could save a little money this way

    I know some people like them, but no way on those Apple Sacs. I like the Foof stuff much better, but me, I would go for a Mobile Edge sleeve personally.

    What are you thinking about for a backpack? I was looking at the Patagonia Crosstown and also the Patagonia Lightwire 25.

    I have a 14-15 inch laptop case. Would that work if I bought a sleeve for my mac? Also, how much are Apple Sacs?:confused:

    I love the apple sac. I would be a bigger fan of the ncase sleeves if they made a zipper less variety for the macbook.

    I'm waiting for mine to arrive but this site has a nice selection of different fabrics including some linen, corduroy, and tweed for the new aluminum macbooks.
