title says it all - looking for just a bit of protection so the unit doesn't get destroyed - mostly protection from a toddler.

I just got my air in the mail - ordered the 13" and 11" from Amazon and decided on keeping the 11" as my travel laptop and I use my Macbook Pro with Retina 15" as my "base" laptop.

Like you - I'm looking for a case/cover....here's what I found:

1. http://www.louisvuitton.com/front/#/eng_US/Collections/Men/Mens-Bags/products/Poche-Documents-DAMIER-GRAPHITE-N48247

2. http://www.louisvuitton.com/front/#/eng_US/Collections/Men/Mens-Bags/products/Poche-Documents-MONOGRAM-M53456


I narrowed it down to both of these cases, due to the fact that I'm 25 and I don't want a classic case to look like my dad when I travel or go to work. I know the logos aren't all that, I just thought they were cool. My close third was:

I'm a sucker for navy but I can't bring myself to spend so much on this, even though I know it's timeless.

Are you looking for a laptop bag or a case that clips onto the laptop?

Is there anything remotely acceptable that can attach to the device as a fixed case? Again, this is mostly to prevent bumps and bruises from a toddler. I have a carry bag, but this will not be my primary use laptop - more so just general home use.

I know they make a snap case that looks okay for the regular sized laptops, not sure about the air though. Ill look.

The laptops hold up pretty well so I wouldn't be too paranoid.

If you're worried about scratches you can put an invisashield (or whatever the term is for the clear plastic) but I think it would look weird.

Is your child going to be using it regularly or are you scared they will get their hands on it somehow?

You could buy a shock collar for the kid and condition him to fear the laptop. :)

and personally I wouldn't buy any of the LV bags, they look ugly and then you become one of those.
