I am personally not a particularly big fan of protective cases, but have resorted to buying them after badly scuffing my 11-inch MacBook Air. However, if you think you can handle your laptop with more care and want something that does not hinder the MacBook Air’s clean design, yet offers something functional, the MOFT Invisible Laptop Stand case should be on your watchlist. It folds and remains stuck to the base of the laptop, but you can unfold it in a jiffy and turn it into a stand for a more comfortable typing and viewing experience. Plus, there are a ton of color options with funky prints to choose from.

However, if you’re looking for a case that gets the job done and looks clean as well, the Mosiso Hard Case for MacBook Air is worth trying. It comes in over twenty color options ranging from bright neon shades to understated blue and grey trims as well. It has an extremely thin profile and also has rubber cushions at the bottom to ensure airflow beneath the Apple laptop’s chassis. Overall, ita a great solution for those seeking a minimalist case that gets the job done.
