Laptop sleeves are pouches made out of plastic or nylon. The sleeves are designed to fit perfectly over the laptop, minimizing the chances of dust entering the laptop. Despite helping to keep the laptop dust free, there isn’t much laptop sleeves offer, as they do not protect your device from major drops or accidents. The major advantage of getting a laptop sleeve would be the protection they provide against abrasions and scratches, thus protecting the skin of your laptop. They also protect your laptop from coming into contact with all the junk found in your bag or briefcases. Some laptop sleeves also have water-resistant features, which protects your computer from rain and other such incidents.
Laptop sleeves also help to keep your device clean. Thus, you do not have to spend extra time cleaning the device’s display and chassis that frequently. The screen is not the only thing that the laptop sleeve protects. Dust can enter any area of your laptop and hence, clean it could be a real time-consuming task. Dust can affect the inbuilt cooling fan and drastically harm the laptop’s lifespan. Hence, getting a laptop sleeve could be a good option.
While a laptop sleeve can provide strong protection against dirt, it is better to consider the drawbacks of the laptop sleeve. Laptop sleeves do not protect your laptop against any major damage such as being dropped. They also do not come with any strap so you would either have to carry your laptop in your arms all day long or need to buy an extra bag big enough to fit your laptop, which is just extra money spent. Laptop sleeves can also be a bit heavy on your budget if you aim for multi-featured one such as a water repellent sleeve.
Considering the pros and cons of laptop sleeve, if you end up concluding that you do need a laptop sleeve, here are a few tips you should consider erstwhile making the purchase.
The size is of prime importance with regards to the laptop sleeve. A larger sleeve for a smaller device would provide room for it to move around and dust to enter the system. If you end up dropping the laptop while it is in an ill-fitted sleeve, the result would be harsher impact than otherwise. Brands such as Dell and HP provide laptop sleeves that fit perfectly around your laptop. However, you can have one custom made by some local shop.
The fabric of the laptop sleeve is an aspect that cannot be ignored under any circumstances. Sleeves are often made of suede, nylon, microfiber, or plastic. The best ones are made of nylon. How you use your laptop can help you decide what kind of material you should aim for. If you move around a lot then nylon would be a great option, since it would provide a durable case. You can also go for a leather laptop sleeve that would provide better durability but that could end up adding to the weight of the sleeve. Consider the thickness of the material as well. Some laptop sleeves are exceptionally thin, especially the ones made of suede or microfiber. These sleeves are suitable for providing protection against small scratches and dust but almost are null when it comes to providing protection against a harsh impact or a drop. A thicker sleeve would, therefore, help to shield against impacts.
Sleeves often come with a zipper, flapper and even some have one side open at all times. With the latter type, the chances of a notebook slipping out of the sleeve are manifolds. Even with the flapper, you might break the button or the string that through improper storage. A sleeve with a zipper is most well suited for any user. Should you choose a sleeve with zipper, do remember to check the space between the zipper and laptop, in order to ensure hassle-free opening and closing of the zipper.
Buying a laptop sleeve really comes down to our usage. With countless colors and brands to choose from, a laptop sleeve could really be a great fashion statement.
