    I like the first and third one :)
    The first one is good with no zip but leave some exposed...
    But the third one, the booq vyper m3?? the zips never touch the uMBP!!

    Not used any of them but the Booq looks like it would offer the best protection.

    IMO the Manahattan Portage looks hideous lol.

    I'm personally partial to the Booq. I don't own either of the cases.

    I don't like the Waterfield design because it doesn't cover the front-side of the MBP, and the velcro would drive me nuts. :p

    The Manhattan design is okay, but I like the form-fitting look of the Booq rather than it. The Manhattan almost looks to thin to make a difference.

    Just my take. Price is an issue I'm sure. :cool:

    The third one most definitely. It appears to offer the best protection. I have one like, it, but it's the incase one.

    The booq Vyper is the best protection I've ever seen in a notebook sleeve. In my opinion, it offers far better protection than any neoprene case, the zippers never come into contact with your MBP, and it looks great!

    The most important feature is NOT shown in any of those photos. These close-fitting sleeves usually have zippers that scratch the aluminum edges of the MBP. Look for a sleeve that protects against this. Best is the Tucano, with the inner sleeve that wraps around and protects the edge.

    I have the waterfield bag for my mbp13 (vertical, with a flap).

    It's nicely built. The Velcro is of very good quality and, combine with the ring at the bottom, makes it very easy to put your macbook in or to take it out. I would definitively recommend it.

    I woudn't get the first sleeve that you posted. I wouldn't even consider it. It is so exposed.

    I would go with the 3rd (Booq) sleeve. I personally have the the incase neoprene sleeve, which is great - it uses zippers. But has 2 layers of protection underneath to protect the MBP from scratches the zippers may cause.

    PS - the incase neoprene sleeve is a lot cheaper than the Booq sleeve

    I've read good things about the Waterfield and the Booq.
    If going for the first one, I'd add a flap so that it isn't so exposed (in my opinion, at least).
    If you're choosing the zippered one, I'd compare it with the Vyper (previously mentioned by GGJstudios). I believe it offers a greater level of protection (depends on your use, also).
    Whatever your choice, let us know how it went!

    Hope it helps :)

    Thanks all for suggestions...!
    Currently on my MacBook Pro (2006, the new i5 come in late July...:D) I use this Tucano sleeve that it's very very good... and the zippers doesn't scratch the aluminum edges of the MBP...!

    I would check the Cygnett Airsphere. They look pretty cool and seem to offer good protection.

    But I would still try to see one in person to make sure there is something in between the zippers and laptop so that it doesn't get scratched.

    You can get a flap on the Waterfield sleeve. It is an add on.

    I personally own the vertical orientation casesleeve, but I got it without the flap because I use it with my backpack and for ease of access. I have never had an issue with protection. If I did not have the padded backpack or got the horizontal orientation casesleeve, I would have gotten the flap.
