Sure, some people just need to keep their MacBooks safe from dings and scratches. But others put computers through hell and expect them to keep opening spreadsheets without complaint. If you fall into the latter category, you’ll want to check out the Extreme Laptop Sleeve from G-Form ($70-$80), now available for 11-, 13-, and 15-inch laptops, including MacBooks. G-Form has claimed that the smaller iPad version can survive having a bowling ball dropped on it and being thrown from an airplane, so you can expect the same resilience from this model. Updated! We’ve added new pictures and details for the both the black and yellow versions!
What makes these sleeves so protective is the materials they’re composed of. Poron XRD is a foam material that’s normally thin, light, and flexible. Upon impact, it automatically stiffens and absorbs over 90% of the kinetic energy, keeping your MacBook safe. Although G-Form hasn’t repeated the iPad version’s bowling ball and airplane demonstrations yet, you can watch as a 13” MacBook Pro gets dropped from a 20-foot balcony here. Both black and yellow versions are available.
