Best 15 inch MacBook Pro Case: Unibody, Retina, Hard Shell and Sleeve (2017)
A new case is almost always a great investment for those who want to optimize and protect their Apple laptop. Most people expect their new case to meet certain requirements, however.
- Firstly, it needs to be tough enough to protect the laptop from potential damage and blemishes, such as knocks, scratches, dirt and fingerprints.
- Also, it should be functional, so that you can still use your Apple when it's in its case, and practical, with additional pockets for keeping accessories in.
- Finally, it should look attractive and meet the buyer's tastes in terms of image and appearance.
There are many different designs and styles, but most products fit into one of three categories, which are: the sleeve, which normally fastens with a zip; the hard case, which clips on; and the shell, where the case fastens around the laptop to form an extra protective layer.
Most cases are made from materials such as neoprene, leather, polycarbonate, or rubberized satin.
I hope that you enjoy reading my top 5 picks for the best 15 inch MacBook Pro case and find it useful.
