One of the reasons you probably purchased a MacBook Pro 13 was due to its compact size and thin, lightweight design. The sleek, streamlined look of this notebook is perfect for taking on the road.
What you may not have considered is the fact that in addition to the normal, daily wear and tear on the computer, the potential for damage increases if your intent is to travel with it. Everything from dirt, scratches, dents and excessive handling can really wreak havoc on your laptop.
What can be done to prolong the life and looks of your latest greatest investment? By finding and using a solid, durable case to provide the protection your laptop needs, you will be well on your way to increasing the life of your laptop.
There are many benefits to using a case for your laptop.
One benefit is to keep your MacBook Pro 13 clean and free from dust and dirt. Especially if you travel, there are all kinds of things that can get on your laptop. Just a few scenarios include spills, unknowingly picking up the laptop with sticky fingers from eating on the run and just the grime and dust that seem to be attracted to your laptop like a magnet. Without a case, you will also have a lot of fingerprints and smudges.
Another benefit is to provide protection. Even though the MacBook Pro 13 is well designed and engineered, it is a sensitive piece of equipment with a lot of electronic parts that can easily sustain damage if the conditions are right. It is very easy to scratch the hand rest area of the keyboard or the cover and sides of your laptop. Not to mention if you accidentally drop or bump your laptop when traveling. It just makes good sense to give your sensitive device extra protection from all the things that could potentially damage it.
A case is an excellent way to give your MacBook Pro 13 a personalized, stylish look. With some of the cases on the market today, you can really spruce up the gray/black colors of your laptop with some really sharp-colored cases. The Speck SeeThru 13 is an excellent example of such a case. With the vibrant colors available for this case, you can give yourself a custom look to enhance your already fabulous-looking device.
In general, using a case makes the MacBook Pro 13 even easier to travel with because you can either carry it by hand or easily slide it into a shoulder bag, backpack or tote. The thing is that you do not want to put your laptop into a bag without protection, as it can be scratched by other items in the bag or something can stick to it. If you are hand-carrying the laptop, a case tends to give you a more comfortable and firm grip. The last thing you want to do is drop your MacBook without any form of protection shielding it from a fall.
The biggest benefit of using a case for your laptop is the peace of mind you get just from knowing you have your laptop protected and safe from not only the everyday damage that can and does occur, but from the potential of more serious damage when on the road.
Do yourself a favor and protect your laptop in a case. It is an easy and affordable way to extend the life and looks of your MacBook Pro 13.
