I just recently purchased myself a 13" MacBook Air a few days ago:

And right now, it is my MOST favorite thing in the world. :)
Although all tech review sites I've visited state that the Air is one of the most durable laptops out there, the ultra-thin design and beautiful finish often leave me worried about getting a scratch or dent in it.
Just like anyone else with a precious, new Macbook, I want to safeguard my investment and purchase a protective case for it. But I didn't just want a regular case that shields against scratches and dings, I wanted something that could do more.
Something that will not only keep my laptop looking fresh but also cushion it from a drop impact (in case (god forbid) it happens). With dogs and kids in my home, I can never be too sure.
So that was my criteria but of course, I also want something that looks awesome and chic because that's a large chunk of what you pay for when you get a Mac and it's a shame to just cover everything up and add to the bulk.
And that's where the new MacBook cases of Tech21 come in:

It was perfect timing for me to receive an invite for the unveiling of their newest products at the equally new Beyond The Box boutique in Century Mall just a couple of days after buying my Mac.
I am a big fan of Tech21 products because I bore witness to how strong and powerful the technology behind their products is during their iPhone case launch last year. It's truly amazing to see it in person and I liked it so much that I kept it on my iPhone 5 'til it turned yellow and my brother begged me to give it to him. (I did, but with much hesitance).
Even before seeing it, I already knew it was the perfect case for me but when I finally held one, I was even more impressed at how beautifully made they are.
They're a bit gummy which makes it easier to grip and hold on to your Macbook but despite the level of protection they provide against dings, drops and whathaveyou's, they still manage to be lightweight and sleek thanks to the development of Tech21's latest impact material called FlexShock.

I wanted one so bad that I resorted to this:
An embarrassing physical exhibition of my flexibility broadcasted all over social media for a contest held during the event. I went all "Emily Rose" because I thought they were giving away a case.
But I didn't get a case. Grand prize was this HUGE Crumpler backpack that's large enough and perfect for...yup, backpacking (:P) and camping. Not complaining but a case would've been extra extra awesome. hahaha

So anyway, aside from MacBook Pro and MacBook Air cases, they've also added an Impactology case for the iPad Air.
It's made with a flexible TPU shell integrated with Flexshock. It also has a magnetic front cover that automatically locks your iPad when you close it and wakes it up when you open.
