Apple can be a funny company sometimes. They won’t hesitate to sell you a whole range of expensive first-party accessories, but somehow have missed out on providing a first-party MacBook bag. At least, despite some furious Googling, I was not able to find a record of such a thing.
I guess it sort of makes sense when you think about it. Apple users tend to be pretty individualistic and an Apple bag or sleeve line wouldn’t offer enough diversity to make it worth it. Personally I think that an original Apple laptop bag would sell like hotcakes, but this is the situation we are in. So if you want something to protect that shiny new Mac portable computer, what are your options? It’s hard not to simply pick out a bunch of bags that I would like, so I’ve tried to round up a selection that offers something interesting in terms of looks and color. Usually I wouldn’t give so much weight to a bag’s form over its function, but for an Apple accessory you need to be in a different headspace and give aesthetics their due. With that in mind, let’s look at some of the more interesting and attractive MacBook bag choices on the market.
