    Hi community!

    I just bought a new macbook pro 15 inch. I have searched in the forums for laptop cases and I wanted something professional that really stands out without being cheap or tacky.

    I have been trying to find the Coach Varick Nylon Laptop Sleeve.

    What do you guys think of this sleeve?

    I've been trying to find it at the stores and online but seems like I can't find it.:(

    I think it looks great. What do you guys think? Do you think its too showy for a guy to carry this around the business world?

    Seems like the ebay seller is reliable with all positive feedbacks.

    So should I buy it?:eek:

    Its not showy

    But I doubt that it'll give you much protection -- if that's true, it would be interpreted as style over function and depending what profession you're in, such an appearance could definitely have a detrimental impact on your career. Long and short from my experience: if, e.g., you're a lawyer, don't over-emphasize your Mac or its aesthetic appeal. Other lawyers are haters.

    Could it be a knockoff? I didn't know anything Coach could go for $20.00, especially used...:eek:

    That is because, the auction for the sleeve still has 9 days remaining.

    I have not purchased any designer sleeves, but I have a Loius-V messenger bag(designed for laptops), and it isnt the greatest for protecting my MBP. But it looks CLEAN.

    Wow Loius Vuitton would be great to buy. I live in Cali and travel to NY a lot. So I think those kinda cases should fit right in.

    I think those Coach sleeve goes for 60 retail. Thats the same prices as Incases sleeve plus. Soo torn...:p

    If your a guy I would say do not get it. If you are a female, hey it's all you. I would go for a LV instead though

    Does anyone personally have this case or is it that exclusive?

    I know people who have it and think that it is too bland. I have seen people around campus that have it.

    Um... it looks good. I guess I am more about protection for my expensive macbook pro. I won't mind at all.

    One of a kind non-the-less. IMO in the business world i rather see someone trying and keeping things simple than these furry http://gear.ign.com/articles/879/879649p1.html or bags made to look like hemp...

    Yeah, it doesn't smack of high design or style. It looks more like a normal, cheap vinyl enclosure with a Coach label on it to me. But, if you like the style and the protection, go for it. Style is subjective. However, if you're buying it because you like the idea of having a Coach branded bag, I'd save your money.

    My only issue with it, it looks like to put the laptop in the bag the zipper has a fairly good change of coming in contact with the surface. They maybe be plastic or coated and not scratch it but I've always avoided that kind of bag.
