Product Announcements – Gumdrop Cases of Walnut Creek, California has released the DropTech MacBook Air 11 case and it is available online. The tough, heavy duty case keeps your MacBook looking great and protects it from drops, splashes, backpack or bag abuse, and other accidents around your home or office. The DropTech case is a combination of rugged, easy to grip silicone and transparent Polycarbonate windows to show off logos, asset tags, stickers and other personalizations. Perfect for personal use, classrooms of kids, or protecting company hardware!
Like all portable laptops, it’s easy to drop or ding the MacBook while carrying it around. Any visible damage can void the warranty, since Apple does not cover accidental damage without expensive insurance and deductibles. The new DropTech case from Gumdrop Cases is the best way to prevent damage from everyday accidents and mishaps and will keep your machine in near pristine condition under normal conditions (nothing can help if you drop it off a cliff or dunk it in a lake though).
The DropTech MacBook Air 11 case not only protects from scratches and splashes, but also from disastrous, damaging drops. It’s Gumdrop’s most rugged case design yet! The bumpers in each corner are made from 10mm of silicone to maximize protection without being overly bulky. Beneath the protective bumpers is a transparent Polycarbonate inner top shell. The shell is tough, and lightweight, allowing for lasting protection from general wear-and-tear. Plus, it’s easy to clean and can show off the iconic Apple logo, identification tags and stickers, or anything else you need to add to your MacBook Air!
Installation is a snap! No tools, no sweat. Just slip it into the case, and give it a simple snap and click! It will stay on when you open and close your MacBook Air, allow access to all ports, and provide proper ventilation so your MacBook doesn’t overheat!
Why are cases so important?
Case protection is incredibly important for keeping a MacBook Air within warranty, and saves customers from spending a considerable amount of money on repair (or even full replacement cost!).
You can settle for a hard shell case, or a sleeve of some kind, but those may only help protect from scratches and splashes. Zippered sleeves can get left behind. Clip-on shells pop-off at the first hint of trouble and don’t always offer adequate protection to the edges. Any decent drop can crack the screen or casing, or damage the insides (including the battery) – even with your MacBook covered in a hard shell or sleeve!
FYI: Apple’s warranty DOES NOT cover damage caused by accidents unless you pay more for its insurance plan (with deductibles)! If they see any damage on the outside, it will most likely void your warranty and you will have to pay for repair or full replacement.
In fact, just a single 1-foot drop can dent the casing, so it’s better to protect your MacBook as soon as possible to keep it looking great and free from damage.
Never dropped, or banged up a laptop? You don’t have to be a klutz or walking disaster to worry about your computer hitting the ground or getting scratched up from regular use. You could simply be:
- Someone who uses their MacBook in the field and need something to protect it
- A student who carries their MacBook between home and class
- A commuter who knocks out some work with a MacBook on their lap
- An employee carrying their MacBook around the office and into meetings
- A teacher who stores MacBooks in a cart
- Someone who slips their MacBook into a briefcase or bag often
Whatever the situation, if you’re a mobile, on-the-go Mac user you should protect your MacBook Air 11 with a DropTech case! And, if you have a tendency to let your laptop slip your grip, then you shouldn’t need any further convincing to protect a computer that cost you a bundle. The DropTech case for the MacBook Air 11 is now available for only $69.95 (USD).
