Apple products are very delicate yet efficient and their MacBook Air is no different. The laptop may be small in size making it very portable but it is prone to damage easily so it is better to place the laptop in a case thereby avoiding any damage. Many people feel that a case is of no use if you have a backpack but they fail to consider the damage or scratches that any pen, wires etc., present in the bag may cause your lovely MacBook Air. Another thing to consider is that if anything heavy is kept on the laptop it may damage the laptop’s delicate screen.
Things you must consider while buying a laptop case
Size: The case should be big enough to hold your laptop comfortable. Otherwise if it is too big the laptop will move around in bag while travelling and this may cause damage and if it is too small it will be hard to fit your laptop inside. So make sure to familiarise yourself with your laptops dimensions so you can buy the right case for it.
- Material: Always make sure to notice the kind of material your laptop case/ cover is madeof because if the material is of poor quality it affects the durability of the case and if the material is rough it may cause scratches on your laptop.
- Travel friendly: It is best if the case, cover or sleeve comes with a sling or a handle, so you can wear it or carry it easily and travel unhindered otherwise you should look for the one which is thin and can fit in your luggage easily.
- Weight: Laptop with its accessories is pretty heavy, so to carry it comfortably is a bit tricky. So when you buy a case for your laptop, make sure that the case is durable and does not have a noticeable weight of its own.
- Pockets: It is best if a laptop cover/case/sleeve has pockets to add the various accessories like earphones, charger etc. that are needed for the laptops function. And some laptop cases even have two or more pockets allowing you to keep iPad, iPhone etc.
- Locking: Laptops bags come with a variety of locking techniques like zippers, buckles, latches or snaps preventing the laptop from falling out of the case. You can select locking system based on your taste.
Design and look: Laptops cases have been introduced with various designed to look like a book, some with embroidery, designed like a file etc. with the changing trends the looks have also changes. So try to buy a trendy one.
