Bagaholicboy Muses #201 – A Case For My MacBook Pro

Now that I finally purchased by very own Apple MacBook Pro 13″ yesterday, what’s next?

Why, a spanking new case for it of course.

And seeing how I will be using the MacBook when I’m out and about in town or when I’m travelling overseas, I’m also looking for a case that’s lightweight, easy to use and fashionable, of course.

I haven’t done all that much research yet, but a few favourites have surfaced. Take for example the Incase AnOther + Colette Sleeve that’s designed by Gareth Pugh. Retailing for just USD79.95 (now that’s really affordable), this limited edition 13″ sleeve features a quilted cushioned interior and durable form-fitting construction.

Another option by Incase would be this: the Incase Neoprene Sleeve Plus (USD39.95) that comes in a wide variety of colours including Purple (shown above). And now for the good news, Incase does ship internationally as well. Just drop them an email with your order and they’ll get back to you with the shipping charges before the transaction is confirmed.

Another option that’s really cute is the one from Marc by Marc Jacobs. Available now for purchase at stores in Mandarin Gallery and Ngee Ann City, they come in dual sizes along with 2 different designs. And if I recall correctly, the larger of the 2 retails at just SGD150 each.

Mulberry actually launched a sub-collection last year focusing on cases and bags for Apple products, and one that I liked (and still do actually) is the Mulberry Bayswater Sleeve 13″ in Blue. Retailing for GBP350 online, it is also the only piece so far in this line-up to be made of leather. I’m not very sure if you can get it locally though you can always order it online instead.

And last but not least we’ve got Louis Vuitton. Ever since my last update way back in May 2009 they have launched new variations, including another in Damier Graphite (shown above) and Damier Geant. Available in 2 sizes (13″ and 15″) at SGD1000 and SGD1070 respectively, all 3 (including Monogram Canvas and Damier Ebene are currently available at ION Orchard). What I like about them is the fact that they come with a protective foam-lined interior that’s embossed with LV’s insignia, which is a nice touch. The one in Damier Geant also comes in 2 sizes but is a little bit more expensive at SGD1040 and SGD1110 respectively.

Now folks, here’s my big question for you. Which one should I get?

    the priority should be shock protection, not fashion; no point getting a snazzy case that doesn’t do much in terms of protection. i got a basic black one lined with a memory foam that absorbs shock.

    after you get this, maybe you can think of getting a slightly bigger fashionable case.

    I’m with Jessica Tan on this – get a cheap and good laptop case. I don’t really see the point of spending so much on a case, when I could have just gotten a MBP with much better specs for the extra cash.

    I’d suggest a local product, Fabrix Cases.

    The cases are handmade and you may customise it to add leather handles or a pocket etc (for extra charges of course). I’d suggest getting leather handles because that way, it’s easier to carry your laptop, rather than hugging it.

    It’s custom made for different sizes so it fits well and you can get a matching one for your iPhone too!
