    Does anyone know where I can pick up a good Macbook sleeve from somewhere in Australia? (preferably in Western Australia)? Though I don't mind ordering online from somewhere (as long as they are reputable)

    I'm looking for one that I can just carry it in so I can put it in my satchel for Uni - i.e. the InCase one (I know it's available on the Apple website, but I've heard the quality is not so good).

    So if anyone could help, that would be great.

    Thanks in advance

    I know nothing about Western Australia, apart from the fact Perth is there and not as many people live there as the eastern seaboard.

    I have though recently purchased a sleave for my MacBook. I brought the crumpler gimp in read with a black lining. It was a bit more expensive other options, but I really like it because:

    [1] It is tough and durable
    [2] It is waterproof.
    [3] It fits the MacBook perfectly - not too tight, not too loose
    [4] It has a lining underneath the zip to protect the computer
    [5] It's just dammed funky

    The Apple online store? They had some on sale too during that Friday sale a week or two ago.

    Crumpler is an Australian company - they make the "School Hymn" sleeve.

    StandardTM (STM). They're Aussie as well.

    I'd get an STM Rebound for $50 from Streetwise. I think they're the best Apple reseller I have dealt with. They have a lot of things I couldn't find from other resellers like NextByte and Mac1. It's also a truly fantastic sleeve. :)

    MacMall.com.au is another site, although the MacBook RAM and the STM Rebound sleeve are more expensive than at Streetwise. ;)
