    i think it will be protective enough for the average person, but the incase is def better.

    Hi, I have the LA Robe case and I also purchased it when I bought my mac a couple of weeks ago. It is suprisingly protective. U shud try it but if ur going to be commuting your laptop often then u'd prob be better with some type of hard case?

    I understand the LA Robe case doesn't have handles, does that pose any difficulty in carrying it? How do you carry it? cradled against your chest like a book? or at your sides in between your arm and thighs? I'm always paranoid that it might slip off my grip or something. Thanks!

    yeah neither the larobe or the incase have handles, incase is a bit thicker though. I got an incase mainly just to have something protective for my macbook for when i put it in my backpack so it doesn't get all scratched up.

    The page wouldn't load up. Is the website down or something?
    I've heard nothing but good things about "wrappers" so I really want to see the designs and find out if they ship internationally.:bone:

    Just tried it and it seems ok now, if not put WRAPPERS into Google and yes they really are good.
