We already had an INCASE foam sleeve bought at the MAC shop when we bought this this Larobe sleeve so we have something to compare this to. Paid more for the INCASE sleeve than for this one and the Larobe is superior. It's made with memory-foam. The foam is more dense and holds a shape that you press into it for a while. It also resists impact better than a "normal" foam sleeve. Between the two, this one may be slightly thicker, so if you want the thinnest sleeve possible, then buy the INCASE one. If you're prime concern is to give your Macbook Pro the best possible protection, then buy the Larobe. Highly recommended.

I bought this product thinking that it may be too big for my 13" MacBook (Not Pro) As a few of the reviews i read commented that it would be too big, but others said it was perfect i decided to try it anyway, I received it and it is the perfect size. I would recommend this product it is great for protecting your mac from dust and general scratches. The colour is fab too!!!

My MacBook was delighted to be given this cool looking new coat.
It is well made and provides good security against knocks and bumps when out and about.
Lovely feel and fits like a glove.
What more could a Mac want.

Hello shoppers! Here are the pros and cons IMO:

Pros:
- Nice design, black and white may not be the most adventurous colour but it does the job.
- Fits the 13.3" MacBook (white, unibody) perfectly as described.
- The foamy padding is reasonably dense and offers some protection against bumps and knocks.

Cons:
- You'd be unlikely to carry your MacBook out and about in just this case, so it really acts more as another layer of protection for an existing bag which fits your laptop (though it does this job well).
- If you're looking for a dedicated laptop bag this isn't going to do the job as it has no straps or handles.

I brought this case to carry around my 13" MacBook Pro.

One downside was the fit, in respect of my MacBook Pro (the sleeve is wider and deeper by about 20mm), which means that there is scope for some internal movement of the computer while in transit. It's not much and I tend to carry my laptop within the sleeve, inside a courier style bag, so for me this isn't a major problem. If you do want to use the sleeve alone however, this might not be ideal.

In terms of the build quality, when I received the product I was very impressed. The construction, stitching and zips are of good quality. The contrasting interior colour is a very nice touch and overall it's an attractive case. The memory foam was a primary reason for my purchase of this specific sleeve and initially this seemed to work well.

I have now had the case for just over a year (I brought it in Dec 2011 and I'm writing this, revised, review in Feb 2013) and there are some very substantial downsides to this protective material that I think I should highlight and flag up.

When I remove my sleeve from my bag to use the computer (something that I do on a daily basis) I normally grab the sleeve along it's top edge. Some six months after I brought this I noticed that the memory form was showing signs of significant degradation in this area. Now, some 14 months after paying the best part of £19 for it, the foam has degraded to the point where it offers no protection whatsoever to this specific area of the sleeve - essentially the foam has dissipated or crumbled leaving just the nylon outer in it's wake.

This is not something that I've ever experienced with (previously brought and used) neoprene sleeves and I think unfortunately is a major downside to this particular protective filler.

If they'd had the top opening model in this lining colour I'd have gone for that instead but this was exactly as described so I'm perfectly happy with it. Arrived swiftly. Packaging a bit wasteful - came in a box that would have held at least 5 of them.

I have mixed views on this one. My daughter has used one of these cases with her MacBook for more than four years (including studying overseas with all the associated air travel). That laptop is still going fine. My son has the same case for a 13 inch MacBook Pro. His laptop, in the same type of La Robe case, just fell about two feet off a sofa. The screen is now thoroughly cracked - essentially shattered. I don't think the distribution or choice of padding is adequate to give any useful protection against an edge impact, which is the kind of shock that probably does the most damage. I simply don't know anymore what sort of case (if any) really would be effective. We chose a shapefoam padded case over the thinner rubber ones in the hope it would provide more shock protection. Now I'm unconvinced.

Sadly, the range of purchase options available for credible shock protection is not as broad as I'd have expected, and I can't find any really convincing reviews by people with real packaging engineering expertise. Surely a market opportunity for someone here.
