Any of these cases will give your precious MacBook Pro some additional protection from whatever life throws at it. You do need to consider what level of security you're looking for, though. Some of these options add an extra layer of everyday durability to your laptop, while others give you military-grade protection. Also, it doesn't hurt to add a keyboard cover for some extra protection.

We like the Urban Armor Gear UAG Feather-Light Rugged Case because it offers excellent protection while also being fairly slim and lightweight for what it is. Plus, the design is fantastic.

If minimal rugged protection is your game, then the STM Dux Rugged Case is a good option. We like the simple aesthetic, but it is tough and durable enough to keep your computer safe. We also like the Thule Gauntlet MacBook Sleeve, which fits like a glove and is often available in various colors. If you often take your laptop around with you during school or work, this case gets the job done.
