This case is advertised as fitting the new MacBook Pro Retina 13 inch. It doesn't. It's too loose. For a brand name case of this quality I would expect it to fit snugly.

If this is their definition of "fit" then my iPhone will fit in this case too. I measured and there is an extra inch in the narrow direction and about an extra half an inch of space in the long direction. I don't want my new expensive laptop flopping and floating around inside its case. I have added some photos with a ruler to show just how poor the fit is. I set my laptop on top of the foam that comes inside the case to show how different the sizes are. I shudder to think how a MacBook Air would "fit" inside this case. I am returning this.

Case Logic, Inc. has been around since 1984, which is probably right about the time I bought my first Case Logic case for my cassette tapes. Over the years, as they added items to their product line, so I added their products to my collection. As a sample, I believe I have owned at one point or another, Case Logic cassette cases, CD & DVD cases, CD player cases, Zip Drive cases, trunk organizers, and more. I'm looking around my home office and I can spot several of their products and I bet you do too. Case Logic's 13.3 Laptop Sleeve (LAPS-113) is one of many sleeves that Case Logic makes and it just might be the perfect protective, no frills sleeve for your 13.3-inch or smaller laptop.

PROS:
- No nonsense, sleek design
- 6mm EVA foam padding
- Smooth gliding zipper
- Protective lip prevents damage from zipper

CONS:
- Slight rubbery odor

I define my perfect laptop sleeve to be one that has no handles, pockets, zippers, or bulk. What I want out of a sleeve, is a relatively form-fitting sleeve that I can then toss into one of my other bags, like my Timbuk2 messenger bag or my JanSport backpack. The LAPS-113 hit each of my requirements perfectly, except for the inclusion of a zipper. Though, as you'll soon see, the zipper turned out to be a neutral feature for me, not a negative one.

PROTECTION
First and foremost, the LAPS-113 will protect your laptop from scratches. The exterior and interior materials are made out of 100% polyester. What makes the LAPS-113 stand out from many similar sleeves is the fact that it actually has some worthwhile padding to protect your laptop from impact. It is surrounded by a 6mm layer of EVA foam which feels a lot like memory foam. This thin layer provides enough protection that I feel very comfortable with it in my aforementioned bags. The sides also have a woven webbing that provides a protective texture as well as making it look attractive. As I mentioned before, I did not like the idea of a zipper on a laptop sleeve because I fear scratching my laptop with it. Fortunately, the Case Logic LAPS-113 has a protective lip around the zipper teeth. Essentially, when you begin to zip the the sleeve shut, the protective lip folds down over the laptop so that it is protected from coming in contact with the zipper teeth.

USAGE & SIZE
The smooth gliding zipper runs across the entire top of the sleeve and about an inch down the sides. It is very easy to insert and remove my laptop from the LAPS-113. When inside my messenger bag, I can remove my laptop without having to remove the entire sleeve from the bag. The Case Logic LAPS-113 laptop sleeve is listed as a 13.3-inch appropriate sleeve. The internal dimensions are 13in x 9.1in x 1.1in and weighs just 6 ounces. The new 13-inch Macbook Pro is listed as 12.78in x 8.94in x 0.95in, so the sleeve should be perfect. However, I have a 12.1-inch Google Chrome Cr-48 notebook and that too fit amazingly well. As my readers probably know already, I LOVE Timbuk2 products but I think the LAPS-113 just usurped my Timbuk2 sleeve as the sleeve my Cr-48 will live in. All you game developers who got their free Cr-48 from the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco might want to try the LAPS-113 for your brand new toy. To top it off, the LAPS-113 comes in three colors-black, red, and tannin (a sort of red wine, brown mixture). I also want to mention that the sleeve does give off a slight rubbery odor at first, but fades away after a few days. I know that some people are highly sensitive to smell so I just wanted to mention it for their sake.

CONCLUSION
There are plenty of folks out there who want a sleeve that has enough padding for better impact protection. The Case Logic LAPS-113 is able to do that without adding significant bulk in a simple and attractive design. I recommend it for 13-inch Macbook Pro users and Google Chrome Cr-48 users alike.

Size: 13.3 InchesColor: BlackVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I was expecting a mere utilitarian sleeve to hold my 13" Mac Pro laptop. I am delighted that it also provides some aesthetic satisfaction. The color is a solid inky black, with no lighter threads in the design. The Case Logic logo on the front is small, with the yellow-orange square of half-sun that pops out stylishly and yet is unobtrusive. The woven webbing on the sides is a nice nifty touch.

The top-loading zipper--which is a primary feature for me in determining quality--is sturdy and smooth, and slides like buttah from one side to the other. It won't scratch your laptop because it has a protective lip. The 6 millimeter foam padding feels substantial and secure, and my laptop slips in easily, like a card in an envelope. It fits snugly but not too tightly, either.

External dimensions are 14 x 1.1 x 10" and internal dimensions are 13 x 1.1 x 9.1" The exterior and lining is made of 100% polyester.

The attached description card says "25 Years Quality Guarantee."

Highly recommended to protect your 13" laptop.

This case is a sleek, nicely padded, elegant product, but it is not a good fit for the 2012 MacBook Pro with Retina Display. It is at least 1 inch too large in length and width which leaves the notebook sliding around inside the case. What's the point in purchasing a small, light, thin computer if the case is too big?

Case is fine, good materials. Does not snuggly fit 13 inch macbook pro with retina display, there are gaps of space between the computer and the case. Still usable, and for $15 is fine, couldn't find a better alternative.

This case is marketed as a case for the Macbook Air. The case, in fact, is for the 13'' Inch Macbook Pro. It says so on the packaging when you receive the product. I was highly disappointed by how poorly it fit my Macbook Air. It's twice as wide and way too big. DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU HAVE A MACBOOK AIR.

I just bought a 13in MacBook Pro and needed a case asap for it. Saw this case and so far so good! Fit my laptop perfectly plus its a cute shade of pink :) Love the case and couldn't beat the price anywhere else.

I have a Macbook Pro Retina 13 (Late 2013) and I will confirm that this does NOT fit. When I put it in it was still very loose (thickness-wise). Thankfully it came with a padding (for packaging purposes) and I keep it in with my MBP (and its STILL a bit loose!). It's bulkier with the padding, but I use it for the added protection, otherwise my laptop would be moving around inside the case whenever I have it in my bag.

I got this for my Sony VAIO S Series 13.3" laptop [13.04" x 8.85"], and it fits in this case perfectly with [close to 1.25" thick] or without [0.95" thick] a sheet battery (secondary battery that attaches to the bottom of the laptop) that I got with the laptop. There is a little of extra space that this would work with a slightly thicker or longer laptop but the side way, 13.04", seems like the widest this case can take unless you want to somehwat force your laptop into it.

Both ends of the zippers are nicely enforced so that you won't tear it tryign to get the computer into it.

Pink can be a hit or miss, but I decided to trust the reviewers who said that this was a nice shade of pick, and it really is! It's a cute shade of hot pink, not grayish or too "light" a color that comes to look faded or dirty soon. :D Pink lovers, you won't be disappointed.

The only thing that would be nice to have is a side pocket inside for headphones and such. But with the color being beautiful, I am really satisfied with this case.
