Twelve South SuitCase for Macbook
Available for the 13-inch MacBook Pro/Air and the 16-inch MacBook Pro from Amazon.co.uk
Providing maximum protection, the new Twelve South SuitCase combines a stylish, quilted water-resistant exterior with a thermoform shell to securely hold and protect the MacBook inside. With a slim design and a recessing leather handle, the SuitCase will fit comfortably into a workbag or backpack for everyday use. Alternatively, knowing that the new MacBooks have 20 hours of battery life, if users would rather travel light with just a few papers and a Lightning cable, a handy slim pocket hidden inside the case can hold notes, cables and other essentials.
Users can easily work on their MacBook without removing it from the SuitCase thanks to Twelve South’s innovative suspension system which holds the case securely against the MacBook without interfering with its display. Dual wetsuit-style zippers keep the SuitCase securely closed but also allow for the MacBook to be easily and safely charged whilst still inside the case.
