Hello you geeks everywhere!

I'm planning to buy a new laptop this summer most probably it will be a MacBook Air 11"

I want you to help me choose a sleeve for the laptop

I narrowed down the choices to three:

An owl http://www.etsy.com/listing/63062546/owl-macbook-air-11-inch-sleeve-gray-felt

a wolf http://www.etsy.com/listing/79079798/wolf-macbook-air-11-inch-sleeve-gray

an elephant http://www.etsy.com/listing/64844786/elephant-macbook-air-11-inch-sleeve-gray

I want the sisters  purplehijabisis opinion as well the brothers  bro

you really want to spend $85 on a laptop sleeve?

if you have a macbook air, just get a simple thing like a roocase like

http://www.amazon.com/rooCASE-Neoprene-MacBook-11-6-inch-MC505LL/dp/B004BQTSKC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1332287120&sr=8-1

they work really well with the air-11. trust me.

btw: you do know if you get an air, yur gonna have to spend money getting all those extra attachments:

1) ethernet jack
2) dvd player (lol -- normal USB drives don't work apparently)
3) a displayport out cable for vga or hdmi video for when you want to do presentations (assuming you do)
4) and an extra powerbrick

the power brick for apple macs is mad expensive -- like $75.

Salam,
Wow Sr austmuslimah, you're one kind sis! Getting your bro a MacBook air or pro? Super expensive are MacBook Pro's but I love my MacBook Pro! I bought the latest version & it is an investment! (I gave up having a nicer car in order to buy my Mac). I do not plan on buying another 'lappie' for at least another 6 (hopefully 10) years Insha'Allah.
When I asked my family for the sleeve (even as an Eid present) they refused! Apparently they don't like being told what to buy for me! Never mind that it would've made me soooo happy!
Anyway, a sweet sis who's a friend of mine bought me a sleeve. I am so chuffed! I still love it!
Ma'Salam,

وَلَسَوْفَ يُعْطِيكَ رَبُّكَ فَتَرْضَىٰ

And soon will your Lord give you so that you shall be well pleased.

Thank you all for your answers!

may be apple hardware is more expensive but it has a much more longer life than Pc's
I've been using my iBook G4 (PPC) for 88 months now and i don't feel I need to upgrade unless that I need the extra features that comes with Lion (10.7) which unfortunately doesn't work with PPC Macs

as for the cost of the sleeve: My Sister will pay for the it
and i don't need those extra peripherals, will maybe the VGA cable which is 29$ or so

remember when Apple stopped manufacturing computers with Floppy Disk Drive they said that FDD is dead and they was right
no body is using FD anymore
now they are doing the same thing to optical drives
DVD is dead! long live Thunder bolt!

the sleeve on Amazon looks great but what i like about the Owl or the other sleeves is that you can use it as a messenger bag

why you said the MBA needs an extra power supply?

Hahaha yea I love to buy my brothers and sisters things, I spend more money on them than on myself. My bro will start uni next year so its his graduation/start uni present.
So a pro is good ? Good to know, cuz he loves the pro as well...

Ill leave it up to him to buy the sleeves and whatnot hahahaa
