Joli Originals Smooth MacBook Pro Sleeve review

on Monday, November 11th, 2013

When I leave the relatively controlled world of our home, I typically carry my MacBook Pro in either my Colonel Littleton No. 1943 Navigator bag or booq Boa Flow backpack depending on what type of outing I am going on.

The iPad really wants to travel with you. More than any other computer I have ever used, this device just begs to be taken on trips out of the house.

Noreve Leather MacBook Sleeve Review

on Friday, July 17th, 2009

I have reviewed several Noreve cases over the years. All of which had that initial new leather smell as you open the box, top-quality leather, and fine ‘old-world’ craftsmanship. The Noreve leather sleeve for Apple’s 13″ MacBook is no different.
