Will new MacBooks fit in MacBook Pro cases?

    So my friend just got a MacBook for Christmas and with her birthday coming up in about 2 weeks, I was thinking about getting her a sleeve/case. I decided to browse around the Apple website and noticed that the regular Macbook and the Macbook Pro had slightly different dimensions, with the regular MB being just a tad longer/wider than the MBP. As a result, I was wondering if the MB can fit into the MBP cases, or does that like 0.2 inches in extra width&length really make that much of a difference?

    It should be able to fit in a sleeve but not a case. :cool:

    Cool. Does anyone else have any insight or experience with this?

    I'm thinking about getting my friend the "Incase 13" Neoprene Sleeve for MacBook [Pro]" listed on the Apple website http://store.apple.com/us/product/TR632LL/A?fnode=MTY1NDA2Ng&mco=MTA4MjU0MzA [or something of similar design] but the website description says it's form-fitting, so I'm not sure if that means she'd be able to squeeze in the MB or not.

    The MBs are a little bigger than the 13" MBPs, but there is some wiggle room with the Incase sleeves to begin with. You'll probably be fine.
