I’ve been looking for the perfect case for my 11.6-inch MacBook Air for quite some time now. I’ve been to various branches of PowerMac, iStudio, A-Shop and Digital Hub but I none of these shop has any sleeves or cases made specifically for the 11-inch Macbook Air. So I decided to have one made by a fellow from Philmug who create Manila Envelope sleeves for iPad and MBP’s. Fortunately he has several designs available for the 11.6-inch MacBook Air already.I ordered this Brown case made from distressed genuine leather.
The leather case was perfect fit for the 11.6-inch MBA. Not too big and not too tight.
It has its own lock to ensure that your MBA is secured inside and won’t easily slip out.
This leather case for the 11.6-inch MacBook Air is made-to-order. It costs me Php 1,400.
Now that my 11.6-inch MBA has case, I needed a new bag to carry it. I found thisSumdex NeoMetro II Netbook Backpack from A-Shop in Eastwood Mall. It was the last piece, so I felt so lucky to have found it. It’s just about the right size of bag that I’m looking for.
While outside, infront is an additional zippered pocket which you can put various stuff, including cellphones, power adapters, external hard drives, etc.
I also like the bag’s padded straps which makes it very comfortable on your shoulders.
Design-wise, I love the combination of orange and gray. I’m not particularly sure which of the Apple shops still carry this backpack. But you can order it from Amazon for $29 and have it forwarded here via Johnny Air Cargo.
