I have owned MacBooks of some vintage and designation for the past 20 years. My latest computer is a 2022 M2 MacBook Air, and I just love this computer. It’s fast, it’s light, and it does everything I want it to do. It’s become my daily driver and while I jump to my older ThinkPad T460s with Linux for dabbling from time to time, the main focus of my computing experience is my MacBook Air. I have the “Midnight” variant.

And fingerprints and smudges love the midnight finish.

My previous MacBook Pro had stickers proudly proclaiming my various interests. I have the same on the aforementioned Lenovo ThinkPad as well as the case of my iPad Pro. I’ve been toying with the idea of putting stickers on this MacBook Air, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it, not yet.

The lightness of this computer makes it a little more easier to drop, or I’m getting clumsy as I get older. So, for the first time in my computing life, I ordered a protective case for my laptop.

I found a case that fits the bill; I saw it used in an Army article on the U.S. Army’s Cyber Security website and discovered it was rather inexpensive on Amazon. The case is from SUPCASE and it snapped right into place with little muss nor fuss.

I really like the way it looks and I like the slight heft it has added to the MacBook Air experience. I didn’t realize the case would be so shiny; notice the wall receptacle in the shot below.

Overall I am quite pleased and I’ve had the case for just over an hour. I hope to never test the survival of a drop metrics, but knowing I have a case on my computer in case I do get a case of clumsiness is quite reassuring.
