    Cool Best Durable Case for MacBook Pro?
    Hi,

    I need a durable case for my Macbook Pro 15' Retina; something that will stand 6 feet drops, durable. I am using speck case now and it is ok and not that impact proof. I have looked at the Thule Case & Tech21 Case ($99). Any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    I'm not sure you're understanding the situation properly. Getting a durable case that will survive 6 foot drops isn't going to do you much good if the computer inside the "durable case" is broken.

    Consumer level laptop computers are not designed to survive 6 foot drops. Even if they are inside of a "durable case".

    Hey Struvite, I hold the same idea that you should firstly avoid the Macbook dropping.

    As for the recommendation for a Mac protection case, I once bought a 13 inch pro sleeve from an Amazon seller "Inateck" based on this professional article : Inateck 13in MacBook Pro Retina Ultrabook Case review: Stylish felt laptop case is a bargain - PC Advisor

    You can go for the 15 inch edition it recommended. But for the sake of security, please do not easily let your macbook drop down, let alone 6 feet high.
