    I'm 100% happy with the 11.6" Amazon laptop sleeve. Fits 12" Macbook perfectly and was $7.

    There is an entire thread on this subject that is generally right here on the first page.

    That said, yes, the Joli Originals sleeve is amazing.

    Joli and Snugg are adequate but hardly the best, you just like your purchase. I don't own the Incase ICON but it does have the absolute best damage/drop protection. That should be the primary feature of a sleeve.

    Anyone know the external dimensions of the incase icon sleeve. Can't seem to find it on the website.

    Damn, the Joli one looks really nice and I would gladly pay that for such a premium product. But I'm waiting on my order of the Snugg case to arrive today... Anyone tried both by any chance?

    Mine is arriving today and I'll post up pics and a review later tonight.

    They just released the 12" version, I think I may be the among the first consumers to receive one.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but like all Incase products, long-time loyalist customers were offered pre-release discounted versions to try out before the general public got them.

    Good case, still not my favorite as it adds quite a bit of bulk to the edges. I still prefer my Crumpler Fug that was from my 11" air... it's a little too big, but overall is MUCH slimmer. Likely not as much protection though. The concept of the Icon is great tho.

    Your post seems more about you saying "Look at me" then it offers any really good information. Why didn't you post those pictures 3 months ago?

    I looked it up. The Fug is a thin slip case. Not made specifically for the rMB. Seems to me it offers no drop protection. But, yes its thin. Seriously though, how thin do these cases really need to be to be usedful? Was it that much harder to carry the ICON? I put my hands on an ICON, does not seem all that much bigger.

    There is a specific point to the ICON that the Fug does not address. Superior drop protection.
