Needed some extra protection for my 13″ MacBook Pro so I grabbed myself a Protective Sleeve Deluxe for Macbook Pro 13″ by Incase from the Apple store at $49.95.  If you would like to check this out online, you would probably have to go to Apple’s online store as I can’t seem to find it on Incase’s website.

First off, this comes in three colors: black, dark gray, and white.  The one I have is white artificial leather with dark magenta zippers, gray faux fur lining in the main pocket, and dark magenta lining for the external pocket.  However, getting a white sleeve is more prone to getting dirty if you don’t take care of it.

What I like about this sleeve is that there is an external pocket for me to store my power adapter and earphones in (sometimes my wallet if I’m too lazy to carry a purse).  This sleeve also includes a MagSafe access zipper for easy charging while having my MacBook protected at the same time.

This sleeve is made to protect your MacBook from getting scratches, but will not protect it from a hardcore fall since there seems to be only a quarter of an inch of foam padding from within.  Because of the artificial leather on the outside, there is a decent grip while holding on to this sleeve.   A MacBook Pro with a hardcase can fit this sleeve snugged, but will not fit anything else that is bigger than that.  What I really don’t like about this sleeve is that it’s really hard to zip open and close the pockets.  So, I might return it just because of that.

Oh, I forget, it’s airport friendly. How? Maybe because you’re allowed to put this through the x-ray without having to take your laptop out, but who would want to put a white laptop sleeve in a dirty box?
