Whoosh! Screen Cleaner
As we discussed in the comparison item, the MacBook 2018 is lighter, slimmer, and has a reduced overall footprint compared with the previous MacBook Air. This is important to keep in mind when looking for cases and sleeves that are marketed as "made for MacBook Air."
The new 13.3-inch Retina MacBook Air is about an inch less wide and deep like the previous generation, giving it the same dimensions as the 13-inch MacBook Pro, with the exception of thickness.
With this in mind, let's look at the best cases and sleeves of the 2018 MacBook Air.
Some manufacturers already notice which cases best suit the new 2018 MacBook Air. The Tomtoc 360 Sleeve is one of these and has a great padded protection and a nice fit.
It has reinforced edges with the company's CornerArmor, with pocket front for accessories, and is specifically designed for 13.3-inch Retina MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. It is highly rated with 4.7 / 5 stars in over 3000 reviews.
If you're looking for a simple, affordable option that still offers great protection, it's hard to go wrong with and AmazonBasics Sleeve . It will not be as tough to fit as Tomtoc or any other choice, with dimensions just slightly larger than 2018 MacBook Air. But it is available in five colors from just $ 9.
At half the price of Tomtoc above you give up reinforced corners and an outside pocket. But this sleeve still has a 4.5 / 5 star average rating from over 10,000 reviews.
Incase has not been officially updated its range of hardbags and soft protective sleeves for the 2018 MacBook Air, but there are still some options if you want to pick up one that fits well now.
Any Incase sleeves for the 13-inch MacBook Pro (labeled as the Thunderbolt 3 – USB-C model on the website) will work well since the new Retina MacBook has the same dimensions.
The basic sleeve begins at $ 28 (new colors are probably on the way since many options are out of stock at the time of writing). Premium Icon Sleeve goes for $ 70.
As one of the first companies offering a hard shell for the 2018 Retina MacBook Air, i-Blason offers a simple, clean Approach with hard sleeve.
The transparent box is equipped with a matte frosted surface, with bottom and bottom ventilation, rubber feet, a precise fit and easy access to the headphone and USB-C / Thunderbolt 3 ports.
With a similar style to Tomtoc and Incase, the Mosiso Sleeve is another good choice for the money. With plush padding, an external pocket and a 4.6 / 5 star rating with over 1000 reviews on Amazon, this sleeve can offer you the most bang for your money.
