Once my old Dell laptop started showing signs of getting old I decided to buy a new laptop and searched a lot before zeroing down on MacBook Air. How I finalized onto MacBook Air is a story in itself for some other time. Today’s my point of focus is an accessory which has helped in keeping my MacBook Air safe. Apple has designed MacBook Air very craftily, the aluminium finish, the sleek lines all ooze premium nature of the Apple Ultrabook.
I have always been very particular about keeping my tech devices safe from harm. Be it my Apple iPhone 5 or Nokia Lumia 730, always I use cases and covers. My old Dell laptop still doesn’t look older than a year, although I never used a case with it but still I made sure it is used and kept in a good way.
With Apple MacBook Air the beauty of the device is stunning but I felt the need to keep it safe from dust and dirt plus need some extra protection against any unwanted accidental drop. And keeping that in mind I started searching for a case for my new laptop. I searched in my local market, found a few cases but none to my satisfaction; not a single one I liked for my MacBook Air. Sometimes the colours on the case were off while other times the build quality was not up to mark. In some covers I even found edges not smoothened out, now getting a cover for your premium laptop the cover should also be up to the level.
Online I found many cases and covers on online retailers and then one day I came across www.skin4gadgets.com and during that time by luck I was offered to test any case for their website. The website has a range of products mobile cases too, customized mobile and laptop skins. Other than this you can get sleeves, mugs, tablet skins all things are available on the website according to your requirement. I choose the Rubberized Hard Case for 13.3″ Apple MacBook Air 13 with GUNS N ROSES ICONIC 30 YEARS LOGO. The case was sent to me via courier and it’s been a month since I am using this case.
The case itself is made of hard polycarbonate plastic but doesn’t feel cheap and has a good finish quality. The cover has a smooth satin finish on the top and bottom parts are painted with rubberized paint. This paint and satin finish give a good feel when you hold the device in your hand, plus the case is non-slippery and provides extra grip while handling the laptop.
The logo on the back of the MacBook Air 13 case is the GUNS N ROSES ICONIC 30 YEARS LOGO which is licensed officially from Universal Music and this is mentioned on top of the case. There are other logos as well on the cases, which include ROLLING STONES MULTI TONGUE ICONIC LOGO, BOB MARLEY 4 FACES and ROLLING STONES ICONIC TONGUE LOGO. All the cases come in Black colour and the colour combinations used with Black are great.
How to use the case?
This MacBook Air 13 case comes in two different snap on parts, and putting on the cover was easy, you just need to slip the cover onto your laptop and you are done. There is no special trick needed to put on the cover, both the halves slip on and off easily. There is no need to remove the case while using the ports and accessories with the cover placed on the laptop. All care has been taken to provide access to all the ports charging, USB, headphone so you need not worry about this thing.
The best benefit of this MacBook Air 13 case for me is that I don’t have to worry now about scratches on my laptop anymore. Another added benefit is the cover provides is the safety against occasional bumps giving your laptop extra protection.
The only minor issue which I feel is that the case gets fingerprints easily but that is not an issue as a simple wipe will clean it. A minor thing to note here the iconic Apple logo on the back of your laptop will not be visible but that is a minor trade off against what added benefits the case provides.
So, if you are in search of a protective cover for your laptop I would definitely recommend getting this one for the added security, safety and peace of mind. The MacBook Air 13 Case with GUNS N ROSES ICONIC 30 YEARS LOGO is available at Skin4Gadgets website at a price of INR 1519. Considering the added safety and finish quality it is really good.
