Best MacBook Air (2018) Cases

The new MacBook Air has arrived with a few changes and upgrades (see our review if you want all the deets). For one, it's smaller and lighter – though not quite in price.

Like any of our coveted (and expensive) Apple products, we want to keep it protected and looking fresh for as long as we can, which is why we've looked into the best cases out there for the latest MacBook Air. Of course, you can find options on Apple's website, but these start at £39.95/$49.95.

Whether you're looking for something cute and stylish, rugged or a simple shell case, there's something on this list for you.

The new MacBook Air has arrived with a few changes and upgrades (see our review if you want all the deets). For one, it's smaller and lighter – though not quite in price.

Like any of our coveted (and expensive) Apple products, we want to keep it protected and looking fresh for as long as we can, which is why we've looked into the best cases out there for the latest MacBook Air. Of course, you can find options on Apple's website, but these start at £39.95/$49.95.

Whether you're looking for something cute and stylish, rugged or a simple shell case, there's something on this list for you.

 

Inateck 12.9in Laptop Sleeve

The Inateck Sleeve is a classy option and one we've recommended before. It fits the new MacBook Air 2018 and even the 12.9 in iPad Pro, which means you could swap it if you wanted to. 

The felt absorbs shock and prevents scratches, while the material lining the inside is mould-proof and wear-resistant. Plus for less than £15/US$15 it's a bargain.

 

Kuzy MacBook Pro 13in Sleeve

Here's another sleeve option if you're after a sophisticated look. It's available in a broad range of colours, including a vibrant teal and pink.

The top flap closes magnetically, and a soft divot in the opening allows you to easily remove the MacBook Air from the sleeve – and impressively, a cutout on the side allows you to charge your Mac while it's still in the case.

There's also an additional pocket at the back of the case where you can store papers and documents.

Available for £14.99/£21.99 on Amazon.

 

Supcase Unicorn Beetle MacBook Pro (2018) Case

The Unicorn Beetle from Supcase (short for super case) is a style we often recommend. It's strong, sturdy and reliable.

The base is fully vented so your laptop doesn't overheat. It combines TPU and polycarbonate and comes with an all-round bumper for maximum protection. Plus, the transparent casing will allow the natural colour of your MacBook Air (2018) shine through.

Available on Amazon for £27.99/US$29.99.

 

Fintie MacBook Air (2018) Clear Case

If you prefer a hard case without any distracting protective ornamentation, this clear hard case from Fintie may be the right for you. 

Fintie also has a number of cute decorative options like this paisley one for £12.99/US$15.99. It's lightweight and fully vented so your MacBook won't overheat.

The clear Fintie case (pictured) is available on Amazon for £10.99/US$13.99

 

Etsy Blue Marble MacBook Air (2018) Case

We love looking at the eye-wateringly beautiful options from Etsy when it comes to tech accessories, so we had to see what was out there when it came to the MacBook Air (2018).

This marble case is on the pricier side, but what more can you expect from something that's made to order.  It ships from the US, so there's a £5.70 shipping fee for UK customers.

Available on Etsy for £43.37/$55.

 

Kecc MacBook Air 13 Retina Case

If you're interested in cases with a bit more pizzazz, KECC creates colourful options with a whole bunch of different patterns to choose from. The cases come with a keyboard cover as well.

The front cover is made of hard plastic and is coated with a rubber oil paint to minimize fingerprints and scratches, while the bottom shell has rubber feet and ventilation slots to prevent overheating.

Available on Amazon for £17.99/US$22.99.

 

Mosiso MacBook Air 13 Case

Similar to KECC, Mosiso also offers beautiful graphic cases that come with keyboard covers – except you also get a screen guard for additional protection. The front cover is also translucent so the Apple logo can shine through (depending on which style you choose). The brand offers a 1-year warranty if you run into any trouble.

Available on Amazon for £19.01/US$19.99.
