MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Case or Sleeve for Your MacBook From WaterField Designs

by

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with WaterField Designs to offer MacBook and MacBook Pro users a chance to win a Syde MacBook Case or a Maxwell Sleeve for their notebooks.

Available for the MacBook, the 2016 13-inch MacBook Pro and the 2016 15-inch MacBook Pro, the Syde MacBook Case is priced at $159 and is a simple, slim bag that can hold a MacBook and a few other accessories. Made from either black ballistic nylon or a brown waxed canvas, the bag has a simple magnetic closure so it's easy to get a MacBook in and out.

A padded neoprene sleeve keeps the MacBook safe from bumps and scratches and a leather front pocket holds a charger and other odds and ends. A leather handle is included, as is a strap, and there's also a rear pocket for holding documents.

The Maxwell Sleeve is also available for the 12-inch MacBook and the two new MacBook Pro models, plus there's an iPad Pro version for Apple's 12.9-inch tablet.

Priced at $99 to $119, the Maxwell Sleeve is available in a water-repellant Nanotex-coated material, waxed canvas, or ballistic nylon, and it comes in several different colors (kelly, crimson, slate, cobalt, black ballistic, and waxed canvas, a brown shade).

Like the Syde, the Maxwell uses a simple noiseless magnetic closure and offers padded protection for the MacBook, plus it can be ordered in vertical or horizontal orientation. It doesn't have additional pockets or straps (but you can get one if you want), so it's ideal for sticking into another bag or backpack.

I won one of these contests once. I'll trade you my prize for your national health care.

I was wondering the same thing. I have entered a ton of these contests, but never once seen a winner announced or heard from another user saying they won.

I won once.
