    I really like the Incase slim sleeve. It uses velcro closure, which makes a lot more sense than a zipper for the MBA. Nice construction, really classy.

    I've never been a fan of those hard cases, but I can't deny that they provide extra protection. I just think they're ugly as hell, why cover all that beautiful Al.

    It will protect against dents from drops and what not. Its just gonna be a bit more bulky. If you just want to protect against scratches and dirt, I suggest an invisibleSHIELD

    i'm probably gonna get a waterfield laptop sleeve for my macbook air http://sfbags.com/

    They're abit pricey but I've used their stuff before, and they work great.

    :p the steve sleeve is cool, but don't you think it's abit cheesy? But that's just personal preference, I always prefer understated to flashy.

    I was a big proponent of the invisibleSHIELD for MacBooks until I'd had mine a few months. It looks snazzy and protects against scratches and such, but the heat from the notebook eventually causes discoloring. (mine turns brown/reddish)

    Of course with invisibleSHIELD you get a lifetime warranty so you can remove it and send it back for a new one for the cost of postage, but I'm on my 3rd one in two years and that's getting old. I don't think I'll be shielding my new MacBook Pro. I'll keep using Zagg's products on my iPods though.

    That's just my experience. YMMV

    Just buy a sleeve to protect from scratches during transport in a bag. Other than that I don't see a reason to put a case on it. As said previously, the plastic will insulate heat. Plus plastic on metal looks odd.

    i think it's pretty cool but yes ur right it is a bit cheesy
    but i was just recommending it to the OP - u never know, different ppl different strokes - they may like it?
    and there certainly are the ppl who buy the air coz it's sexy and flashy
    coz it's certain that nobody buys these things for the performance :p

    i agree I was actually gonna get the see thru spek case but after reading the comments that the air tends to get very hot plastic isnt the way to go

    so i have elected to pick up the incase tomrrow once my air arrives :D cant wait
