    Default What is a good case for the New Macbook?

    I have just ordered my new Macbook (12 inch) and I wanted to know if there are any cases (hard or gel) for it? If not, what do you recommend for protection?

    I have a Speck shell for my Pro and it's awesome. I highly recommend it!

    wouldn't the case prevent the heat from dissipating?

    I've disliked most cases but have used sleeves. Now popular sites have the sort that used to cost $30-50 for $15-20. So far I'm happy with one from "Runetz" or similar.

    When my users have dropped MacBooks with the plastic shield cases I've seen they still bend or get some visible damage but the computers often work with or without them.

    That Thule model might be good for my work if it comes off easily because small size is a major reason I got the MacBook.
