Lots of choices

If you'd rather not buy a case for your new laptop, at least grab a decent sleeve so that the outer beauty of your new MacBook Pro matches what's on the inside! A quality sleeve will protect your MacBook Pro from scratches, spills, and the everyday wear and tear of shoving it into backpacks, carrying it around, and sliding it around on desks and tables.

Our overall favorite is the official Leather Sleeve from Apple, although we're also in love with the Kinmac's sleeve, with its great colors, affordable price, and vertical design. We also recommend that you check out the Woolnut Sleeve, which feels like butter to the touch.

Regardless, be sure to protect your MacBook Pro from the elements! Otherwise, get prepared for disaster.
