    If its wait for the new Macbook pro? Yes

    The macbook 2016 will not be updated until 1st quarter next year (2017). So yes, its safe to buy if thats what you are looking for.

    I have a matte black Speck installed on mine. It's pretty neat and doesn't add too much bulk, therefore maintaining the aesthetic of the MacBook.

    I had initially wanted the UAG but when I installed it, the front lip wouldn't close properly - as in there was a gap about a millimeter tall. I was afraid of small particles getting in through it and scratching the screen so I had to exchange it for a Speck.

    Edit: I should add that a shell/case is indispensable to me as the surfaces that I rest my MacBook on is pretty slippery. I found the MacBook's feet to be not as grippy as I had wanted.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I ended up with the Laut thin clear case. It looks almost naked and provides minor protection for dings and scratches. let's see how long this one lasts.

    for those on the UAG, does it really leave a few mm of an opening at the lip? i'm very anal in relation to the lips. i wouldn't be comfy getting anything between those lips. i need a case that allows those lips to stay tightly shut whenever i'm done using her.

    Indeed, there is a small gap because it uses the closing mechanism of the case rather than the magnets of the macbook. I have a separate sleeve for my macbook 2016 with uag, so no worries on dust getting in.

    Hi, can you guys recommend a slim bag with a handle and possibly a shoulder strap (removable) available here in the PH?

    aprub!!! that was a wise choice amigo! spend on the main UAG case which i'd say isn't cheap at around 3.5k then hammer it home with a simple yet just as effective sleeve from Japan Daiso. awesomesauce!

    Looked around for slim bags for the macbook, bought a 11" bag from case logic during the megamall sale.. but i bought this one recently. It's an ipad attache, but the macbook fits (My macbook has an ozaki slim case). Bought it from Thule SM Aura for 2999.

    Digital Walker Century City Mall ( tel no. 909.2721 ) has it. Got it from them and had the courteous staff at the lower floor Beyond the Box branch install it in my behalf. P1500. :)
