Product Information

  • Overview

    Just like MacBook Air, BookBook is extra light and ultra-thin. This genuine leather case has rigid hardback covers with reinforced corners to protect MacBook Air from impacts, yet it weighs a mere 13.5 ounces. And its soft, chocolate brown, padded interior helps preserve the finish on your Mac.

    Beautifully versatile

    You can use BookBook like a traditional sleeve. Or you can secure your MacBook in place with the elastic corner bands, so you're free to use it without removing BookBook. This unique case also provides an additional level of security by disguising your MacBook as a vintage novel.

    I have been looking for a case/sleeve ever since I bought the MBA.
    I have seen & tried Incase & Hard Candy Case/Sleeves at Apple I have been looking for a case/sleeve ever since I bought the MBA.
    I have seen & tried Incase & Hard Candy Case/Sleeves at Apple store but did not like them much, but this one is the best ! Although it may be a little bulky for some people.
    Fits very well in my Laptop Briefcase and Backpack, also you can carry the case itself which looks cool .
    For me thumbs up ! Only complaint maybe the price !

    I bought the 13" BookBook for Macbook Air for my MacBook Pro with Retina Display. The problem was, it barely fits. On the case, th I bought the 13" BookBook for Macbook Air for my MacBook Pro with Retina Display. The problem was, it barely fits. On the case, there are these two black straps that go over the screen, with my 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display, those straps are always coming off which means the case doesn't stay on properly and it is so annoying!

    I think it's an awesome case, it looks great. But sometimes, I'm concentrating on the straps of the case more than I am my work. I wouldn't buy it again. I also have a Macbook Pro (13") and that fits perfectly! Considering that the Macbook Pro fits so perfectly, and the MacBook Pro with Retina Display has a significantly smaller screen (and is thinner), it is really annoying how the reviews say "this case fits a MacBook Pro with Retina Display" because it doesn't...

    IF YOU ARE GETTING OR HAVE A MACBOOK PRO WITH RETINA DISPLAY! Do not get this case! It's too annoying, there are better cases out there... TRUST ME! Don't get caught up in the excitement of a new case (that's what happened to me). Looks great, but not on MacBook Pro's with Retina Display.

I've dropped it a few times and the case has protected my laptop very well. To boot, when my apartment building was broken into, my laptop was the only one not stolen because of this case.

    I ordered this case because it said it was for both the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with Retina Display. I can't speak for the Ma I ordered this case because it said it was for both the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with Retina Display. I can't speak for the MacBook Air, but as for the MacBook Air with Retina display, this case doesn't fit very snugly. The elastic retention straps at the top of the case barely grab the edges of the computer, and slip off when computer is opened fully while in the case. The case itself is very well made and sturdy. I ended up returning this case and ordering one from the Twelve South website, they make one specifically for the MacBook Pro with Retina Display that's only available on their website, according to the sales associate I spoke with at Twelve South. I haven't received a refund yet because I just sent it back today, the Apple return process is pretty painless though, and I'm supposed to get back the full $79.95 + Tax. I also didn't have to pay for return shipping, I just printed out the return label from the Apple website, attached it to the box it came in, and scheduled a pickup with FedEx. If this case fit the MacBook Pro with Retina display better, I would give it 5 stars.
