    Right now I have a white macbook. I carry it back and forth with me all the time to school. Either in a shoulder bag or my bookbag. So it bounces sometimes, depending on how many books I have with me. The sleeve I have for it seems kind of thin and I believe it may be why my hard drive crashed.

    This was it:

    What would you recommend that would absorb the shock from the slight bouncing in my bookbag? I do not want a hard case like spec either. I was thinking this one:

    http://www.applesac.com/peonylace.html

    Will that one be good for what I need? Anything else you guys recommend?

    Also I may be purchasing a new 13in macbook pro in September. Something I could use with both would be good.

    Look at the sleeves at sfbags.com. They are really well made, quite padded and very customisable. They fit perfectly! Great customer service as well. I've bought several, used them in everything from a messenger bag, backpack and even canvas tote bag. Never a problem.

    Definitely sfbags for a rugged, well protected case. Incase is great if you just want protection from scratches and light bumps.

    InCase is a pretty good way to go IMHO...

    I have the LaRobe Black Addict (Pumpkin) and it is awesome.

    It's lined with memory-foam and has a protective thickness of 5mm VS. 3mm in the Incase.

    Incase - cheaper but reliable, secure. I'm more comfortable when my MB is in the zipped bag, not velcro.

    I also use this, the inside of this case is extremely soft. It also has decently thick padding so a little jumping around in a backpack wont hurt it

    I just love apple sacs <3 lol
    They aren't as sleek as the neoprene cases, but they do carry your charger and they're so pretty haha
