Case maker Speck has introduced a slew of protective products for the 11-inch Air. Building on the success of the company’s hardshell laptop coverings, the $50 SeeThru Case for MacBook Air 11″ (lower left) is a clear, glossy, two-piece shell that snaps onto the top and bottom of your Air, protecting it from scratches without adding much bulk or obscuring its sexy profile. All ports are accessible, and custom feet keep the Air firmly planted on your desk. The $50 SeeThru Satin Case for MacBook Air 11″ offers similar protection in can’t-see-through-it black. The company claims its new Air shells are its thinnest ever. Also custom-made for the Air is the $35 PixelSleeve Air 11″ for MacBook Air (upper right), a form-fitting, textured-neoprene sleeve with a micro-fleece lining.
The company also has two netbook-focused bags that will fit the 11-inch Air. The $50 CorePack-10 for iPad & 10″ Netbooks (lower right) is a messenger bag with a butterfly-opening design that’s TSA-friendly. Despite the bag’s name, its padded, micro-fleece-lined compartment fits the MacBook Air (or, of course, an iPad, netbook, or e-reader), while the bag’s other main compartment houses pockets for accessories and cables. Similarly, the $50 PortPack-10 for iPad & 10″ Netbooks (top left) fits the 11-inch Air. This vertical messenger is designed to stay slim if you’re not carrying much, but it can expand to meet your needs—pockets on the outside can fit a few accessories and cables, while a zipper around the middle of the pack allows it to expand to twice its normal size to fit even more of your stuff.
