I remember the first time I scratched my MacBook Pro. It was at the airport; I placed it in a tray that sadly had sand at the bottom, probably from someone who came straight from the beach. I cringed. Luckily, I placed it face-up, but every time I look at the bottom of my MacBook Pro, I remember the scratches, and sadly not the vacation I was on.
If your office is mobile, you are always on your phone or on your laptop, which means working from the coffee shop, from home, or anywhere in between. Your MacBook Pro goes everywhere with you, and you’re always placing it on any type of surface that’s welcoming enough for you to get your work done.
Even if you go with the cheapest model, a MacBook Pro is an expensive computer. While it retains its value pretty well, nobody wants to buy a scratched laptop, no more than you like working on it. So how do you best protect your MacBook Pro? Slap a case on it. I know, it’s a compromise, like using fabric seat covers on your leather seats, but you’re only postponing the inevitable.
Regardless of whether you have a 13, 15, or 16-inch MacBook Pro, we’ve rounded up some of the MacBook Pro cases we think you should definitely look at if you’re on the market for some protection for your laptop.
MacBook Pro Cases for 13-inch
Unicorn Beetle is the case for those who enjoy the ruggedness and security provided by SUPCASE’s products. It comes in two colorways, a Grey and a Blue, both of which will ensure your device still looks good while being protected. This particular model is not compatible with M1 models, according to SUPCASE’s listing.
The ProCase Hard Shell for MacBook Pro is an option to consider if you often find yourself using your MacBook out in the open. It uses an impact-resistant bumper that wraps around the laptop, and the other clear plastic components will keep your MacBook scratch-free. The built-in kickstand is a bonus that we believe will be welcome.
MacBook Pro Cases for 15-inch
Kuzy Hard Cover is a soft touch hardshell option with a simple snap-on design. It will ensure your 15-inch device has protection from scratches, and the rubber feet will provide space from the surface it’s placed on to maintain ventilation. The case is available in four different color options and even folds back without blocking motion.
The UAG Armor Gear is an option for 15-inch MacBook Pro owners who look to use their devices in rough environments or even tend to drop them often. It has an enclosure design where the top-half can lock itself with the bottom to ensure the laptop doesn’t open when it’s being moved around, presumably in a backpack.
MacBook Pro Cases for 16-inch
Of course, there are plenty of other cases you can choose from, for different purposes, of different materials and colors, but these are just a few we recommend based on our taste.
With any MacBook Pro, if you need to ensure your device is protected from falls and the damage they cause, picking accessories from SUPCASE or UAG is essential to an extent. But if you’re looking to keep your device safe from scrapes and scratches, options from Kuzy, Mosiso, and Mektron are worth picking.
