LEVEL8 Products MacBook Air Sleeve Review
Manufacturer: LEVEL8 Products
Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by LEVEL8 Products.
If you've read my Hackintosh article, you alreadt know I'm a Mac guy at heart, and so my laptop is of course a MacBook: to be precise, it's the latest-generation MacBook Air 13". With 4G of RAM and a 256G SSD, it's plenty fast enough for non-development work, and it has enough extra horsepower to run Windows 7 in a 2GB virtual machine should I need it. I carry this computer everywhere I go.
For the past couple of years I've used generic laptop sleeves I bought at the Apple store. These were all reasonably serviceable products, simple in design and construction: two slices of closed-cell polyurethane foam with fabric stitched around them, basically. The felt thin, but with these sleeves you trade off some protection and carrying capability for a smaller case. And let's face it: none of us MacBook Air owners want to carry our supernaturally sleek andelegant machines in some giant clunky case.
When LEVEL8 originally offered this product for our evaluation, I wasn't that interested: how much innovation could a company bring to such a simple product? More than I expected, as it turns out.
