I love my Macbook Pro but because it cost so much money, I like to make sure the case I carry it around in is strong enough to keep it protected. The Apple Store always sold these LArobe Be.ez laptop cases but I haven't seen them online in their shop recently so when I came across them on Amazon, I decided to get a new one to replace my old one. What I love most about these cases is that they have a good range it can open landscape or portrait and they have a bright colour selection so there is literally a style on there to suit everyone which is probably why they are so popular with Mac users, I have never looked back.
The case I went for is the black with the orange interior, it is a really bright fluorescent orange inside which is so good, it has an orange .e on the front which is the obvious logo and how you know it is this brand. It zips landscape and both side zips meet in the middle, it is a nice fabric it is made from, a low resilience polyurethane technology and it is a guaranteed 5mm protection thickness which when you feel most laptop covers they are not as thick as these and this is why I got an upgrade to this brand. You can feel the difference right away and the quality of this, it feels slightly foam like but a lot stronger and very sturdy to hold my laptop.
LAROBE BE.EZ MACBOOK CASE
This laptop case is very easy to use the only annoying thing is that in time they do start to get dirty, I used to have a black and white one but never attempted to wash it and so this time going for the darker orange, I hoped it'd look less dirty. The weight of this cover is 295g and the dimensions of it are 40 x 30 x 3cm and the screen size should be 13.3" which is why it is ideal for the 13 inch Macbook Pro. This is a nice soft material the cover is made from and it is also made with an inner lip to protect it even further. Once my Mac is in this cover I feel it has maximum protection and it has enough thickness round it so that it won't get damaged.
I usually care my laptop in my handbag or in the car and by carrying it in this, it looks stylish but it also hasn't ever come out with any scratches which is good for me. This fits my laptop perfectly inside it with no room for it to fall about and even when the laptop isn't in this case it still holds its shape well and is really firm. After having used this case for a while it hasn't got any damage, a damp cloth will easily wipe off any marks on it so that it isn't stained and being black I find I don't have any problems anyway. I like the zips as they have a wave to them and the .e branding on them too to make it consistent through the whole design.
I think what is good about the Be.ez is that it is ideal for all ages, it can be taken to university or carried around to display work at an interview or at a meeting and it looks stylish in this sleeve right away giving a good impression. These are ideal for anyone splashing out and buying a Mac and I'd never have it any other way, the range is that versatile that the colours will suit both males and females as they are quite unisex. This is a nice small compact design and the material is soft to touch too, the zip is very strong on this and it never catches at all when I am zipping the laptop in and out of this sleeve quite frequently.
Ideally, this is great for anyone it is a good brand, the sleeves are reliable and keep your laptop protected very comfortable. I love the look of my case and feel proud to have my laptop kept in this as it looks stylish at the same time. These cases are probably the strongest I have come across yet and although they cost a bit more than some brands, they are good to buy. Obviously being a sleeve these are for carrying in a handbag or brief case and are not laptop bags as if you need a strap then you need a laptop bag these are just for protection. I keep my laptop in this case all of the time and every night put it in this as it stops it from collecting dust when not in use too.
This LaRobe Be.ez laptop case can be purchased on Amazon where they sell it for £18.02 or £18.75 ranging between these rates for the orange/black or pink/black covers.

When looking for a sleeve for my 13.3" MacBook Pro I was drawn to this sleeve, it look stylish from the picture, was at a good price, and the colours matched my headphones.
It arrives in a plastic/rubbery (might be thick polyethene, although it doesn't matter too much) 'zip' case of it's own with 'LA Robe protection Macbook 13.3"' written on the front in white writing. On the back it states that the product has:
Low Resilience Pulyurethene (LRPu) Technology
Robe pretection thickness 5MM
Inner lip for maximum protection
Trendy, unique design
Stands alone or in your bag.
No more scratches for your notebook.
There is a tag with an example of the material used, which is a good indication of how protective the product will be.
It looks good, although the picture makes it look better than it is in reality. It is well built, although feels and sometimes looks a little 'cheap'.
As a word of warning the product is built for the 13.3' Macbook (plastic), so using it with a 13.3" Macbook Pro will lead to a slight gap due to the Macbook Pro being slightly thinner. This may be annoying to some people. And although there is a lip so that the zip does not harm the Macbook during it entering and being extracted from the sleeve, there is still the worry that a zip might still scratch the expensive laptop.
The product still does what it aims to do and protects the laptop.
Initially designed for the Apple notebooks, LArobe is made of a soft, shape-memory material, ideal to dress your notebook in an original fashion while protecting it from mobile life worries.
This case is designed for MacBook 13,3".
