Which is the best case for your 14-inch MacBook Pro?

Your 14-inch MacBook Pro deserves a dependable case for increased protection (and possibly one of the best bags for 14-inch Macbook Pros but that's another story). The best 14-inch MacBook Pro cases come in various designs, so there is definitely something out there for you. 

However, the tried-and-true Incase Hardshell Dot Case is our overall favorite. It's been around for many years and offers excellent protection. For something completely different, consider the HYZUO Laptop Sleeve case. It comes in various colors and includes a separate accessory case.

If you're looking for something more durable, consider the U by UAG case. It's a translucent shell that provides scratch-resistant protection with a textured feel for an easy grip. Many people like leather, so if you're reasonably sure you won't need a hard case, a slender leather case and sleeve can add a touch of class to your already impressive laptop.
