Tuff-Luv Saddleback Brown Genuine Leather Case Cover

Let’s be honest: when was the last time anyone came out with a new kind of case for a MacBook? Sure, there are clip-on hard-shells, bags, and plenty of sleeves. Leave it to the Brits to turn cowboy fashion into a great new option to protect your MacBook Air: this is Tuff-Luv’s Saddleback Brown Genuine Leather Case Cover (11” – £80/$131, 13” – £100/$164). Looking like a distressed leather portfolio, the Saddleback has flaps that hold tight to the bottom corners of the Air. Brown leather covers the entire body, and the halves are held shut with a magnetic closure.

What’s cool is what happens to that closure when you are actually using the computer: it magnetically attaches to the screen bezel, leaving room for the FaceTime camera and keeping everything in place. While there are some conceptual similarities to Gumdrop Cases’ recently-released Surf Convertible, the execution on this case is pretty impressive, as it should be for the higher price.
