A sleevecase provides an extra layer of protection for your ‘Book, especially when you carry it in a more traditional bage. Lately I’ve had to carry a more conservative case (a leather bag from Kenneth Cole) and it provides zero impact protection for a notebook computer, by adding a Waterfield sleevecase to the mix I can carry my MacBook around well-protected without advertising the fact that I’m a computer geek.
WaterField is now shipping a SleeveCase designed specifically for the 15.4-inch MacBook Pro. The MacBook Pro SleeveCase is a “slim, durable covering made of a sturdy ballistic nylon shell and a high-grade neoprene interior that envelopes itself around the MacBook Pro for a snug fit.”
The Sleevecase can be used as a stand-alone case, or can be inserted into briefcases, messenger bags, or backpacks. WaterField SleeveCases comes in either a vertical or horizontal orientation, and you can customize them by adding a front flap or a strap for carrying the SleeveCase by itself. A detachable gear holder, the Piggyback, is also available, for carrying accessories like a power adapter, a mouse, or an AirPort Express. I recommend getting it with the works.
The Waterfield Sleevecase for the MacBook Pro (size 25) costs US$39, the Piggyback costs US$22 and both are available now.
