Gumdrop Cases announced today the new 13-inch MacBook Air case is now available online. With Apple still supporting this popular ultra-portable, lightweight laptop, it’s more important than ever to protect it with the right case since Apple’s warranty does not cover accidental damage. The best case for MacBook Air 13″ is the DropTech from Gumdrop Cases.
The new DropTech MacBook Air case not only protects from scratches and splashes, but also from disastrous, damaging drops. It’s Gumdrop’s most rugged case design yet! The DropTech’s unique design strategically employs a combination of rugged and high impact materials that have no problem protecting the edges and corners of the MacBook from normal use and repeated abuse.
The bumpers in each corner are made from 10mm of silicone to maximize protection without being overly bulky. Beneath the protective bumpers is a clear Polycarbonate inner top shell. The shell is tough, and lightweight, allowing for lasting protection from general wear-and-tear. Plus, it’s easy to clean and can show off the iconic Apple logo, asset tags, school logos, or anything else you need to add to your MacBook Air!
Installation is a snap! No tools, no sweat. Just slip it into the case, and give it a simple snap and click! It will stay on when you open and close your MacBook Air, allow access to all ports, and provide proper ventilation so your MacBook doesn’t overheat!
Why are cases so important?
Case protection is incredibly important for keeping a MacBook Air within warranty, and saves customers from spending a considerable amount of money on repair (or even full replacement cost!).
You can settle for a hard shell case, or a sleeve of some kind, but those may only help protect from scratches and splashes. Zippered sleeves can get left behind. Clip-on shells pop-off off at the first hint of trouble and don’t always offer adequate protection. Any decent drop can crack the screen or casing, or damage the insides (including the battery) – even with your MacBook covered in a hard shell or sleeve!
FYI: Apple’s warranty DOES NOT cover damage caused by accidents! If they see any damage on the outside, it will most likely void your warranty and you will have to pay for repair or full replacement.
In fact, just a single 1-foot drop can dent the casing, as shown in a drop test video Gumdrop Cases took a year ago with two 11″ MacBook Airs; one protected by our SoftShell case and one completely unprotected:
Never dropped, or banged up a laptop? You don’t have to be a klutz or walking disaster to worry about your computer hitting the ground or getting scratched up from regular use. You could simply be:
- Someone who uses their MacBook in the field and need something to protect it
- A student who carries their MacBook between home and class
- A commuter who knocks out some work with a MacBook on their lap
- An employee carrying their MacBook around the office and into meetings
- A teacher who stores MacBooks in a cart
- Someone who slips their MacBook into a briefcase or bag often
Whatever the situation, if you’re a mobile, on-the-go Mac user you should protect your new MacBook Air with a DropTech case! And, if you are a bit of a klutz, then you shouldn’t need any further convincing to protect a computer that cost you around $1000.
The DropTech case for the new MacBook Air is now available in a White/Blue color combination for only $69.95 and fits MacBook Air 13″ models from 2013-present. Gumdrop Cases is also in production of a DropTech case to protect the new 13-inch MacBook Pro for $69.95, which will begin shipping January 2017.
