The 10 Best Macbook Cases
Since the initial publication of this wiki in March of 2015, we've made 19 edits to this page. An Apple MacBook is as valuable as it is powerful, so it makes sense to protect your investment when carrying it to and from work or school in one of these cases. We've included some basic and affordable sleeves for teens and students, as well as stylish leather covers suitable for the business world, ranked here by their protectiveness, fit, extra features, and style. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best macbook case on Amazon.

In the time that's past since our last look at this category, enough about Apple's Macbook lineup has changed to warrant a significant overhaul, most notably the addition of the touch-bar on Pro models, the alignment of length and width in the construction of 13-inch Pro and Air models, and the recent retirement of the standard Macbook. That left only the Lention Split Leather from our previous list, whose dimensions just happened to fit the bill, but which fell back to number seven when the dust settled.
The other offerings included on our previous list were all fine models, but they were meant to accommodate laptops of an older size than the ones Apple's offering today. We paid particular attention to the internal dimensions of the models we selected, doing our best to ensure that your computer would fit comfortably, be as well protected as possible, and not be at risk of falling out. That's why we didn't include a number of rather stylish cases that served more as open sleeves than anything else (no zippers, clasps, or closures of any kind), and that could easily let their precious cargo come sliding out at an inopportune moment. In some cases, added storage was considered a plus, like the subtle compartments in our number one option, while in others, the extra space served to create a bit too much bulk, which is why the Tomtoc model at number ten landed where it did.
