RadTech’s brand spanking news RadSleevz are the closest you’ll get to a Smart Cover for your new Retina MacBook Pro. Although some of you might feel that your $2,000+ notebook deserves a little more protection, others will appreciate the RadSleevz’ minimalism.
Made from a breathable, water resistant, microfiber-alike material called “Optex,” the skins slip over the svelte new MBP and keep out dust, dirt and scratches without making the thing look like a 1990s Dell laptop.
Slide it into the 42-gram cover and the only part left showing is the rear plastic hinge. The cover also comes in a range of candy colors (as well as dreary gray and imagination-free black) and the texture of the fabric skin is both good for grip and can be used to polish the MacBook’s glass screen.
I hate bulky cases, although I’ll use them if I have to. And if I ever actually buy a MacBook again (right now the iPad/iMac combo does me just fine, with an old aluminum MacBook for emergencies) then I guess that this would be the first case I’d look at.
Best of all, it costs just $31, and can be bought right now.
Thanks: Radtech Team!
