    Hi I am getting my first mac(macbook pro 15inch)
    I never cared about some scratches on a laptop before but feel like I need now
    I found 3 sleeves on apple website. they all have great reviews, prices don't vary much. I am so confused which one to buy. Maybe getting input from real uses might help me choose. I appreciate any comments/advices. I am going to put my order as soon as I choose a sleeve. Yay!! Thanks

    I've never seen a sleeve better designed or more protective than the Vyper M2... worth every penny!

    I'd definitely go for the Brenthaven Eclipse.
    I jut got the avocado green one for my MBP and I love it!

    I had the InCase Neoprene Sleeve on my older MacBook and it didn't have the protection that this Brenthaven does at all.

    The quality is amazing, and it has a lot of protection for such a small sleeve.

    Waterfield sleeve. Highly highly recommend it. I use it with my 17" mbp and its awesome and very very nice quality as well.

    Get the piggy back with it! :D:D

    Best things to buy for your mbp are ilap, waterfield sleeve!

    Sorry for hijacking, but does that Booq sleeve have a handle that you can use to carry it? In some of the images on their website, it looks like it has a handle, but the specifications indicate that it doesn't. I'm wondering if what looks like a handle is actually the hinge. :confused:

    The Vyper M2 is a sleeve, not a bag, so it doesn't have a handle. What you see is a covered hinge.

    Thank you. That's what I was afraid of. Dang, that's a beautiful sleeve and I envy anyone who has one! I'm looking for a compact, sleeve-sized case for my future MBP, but I'm looking for something with a handle. Seeing this Vyper M2 has made me reconsider my requirements.

    I wanted something very compact, yet protective. So I went with the Vyper M2 for protection, then slide that in a SwissGear case with a handle, that's very compact, yet has room for the power adapter, external hard drive and mouse.

    I believe it will actually fit quite nicely into my 15" pocket on my backpack. The outside dimensions of the booq piece are actually the same dimensions of my previous laptop :cool:
