I have been buying a lot of USB-C devices recently to prepare for this day.
This coming 1st September 2017, marks my third year in Tech in Asia. Technically, I started work before my official start date, because the previous guy left in August 2014 and I have to do the takeover before that.

My current work laptop is a Apple MacBook Air 13 Inch (Mid 2011). Despite getting it back in March 2012, the laptop itself is a 3-year old model. My company, migme, has a policy to change laptop every 3 years and this time round, they bought for me a 13″ MacBook Pro Retina (Late 2013).
The processor is a 2.4GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz) with 16GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM and 256GB PCIe-based Flash Storage. This configuration cost S$2,368.
For each of the five designs available, you can choose from two sizes for your laptop, 13″ or 15″. I was contemplating between the Midnight Herringbone and Whiskey Herringbone, and I chose 13″ Midnight Herringbone in the end as I like dark blue!
Moshi’s Codex is a lightweight carrying case for your MacBook Air 11″/13″ or MacBook Pro Retina 13″/15″. Codex protects your MacBook at all times and insulates it from the wear and tear of daily use. Combining style and functionality, Codex provides full access to all interface ports while cradling your computer in a designer protective shell. The exterior of Codex is treated with a water-resistant coating to shield it from the harsh effects of the environment. The interior of Codex is filled with a soft Viscotex memory foam to cushion your MacBook from shocks and bumps while on the go.
PKG Slim Sleeve for MacBook Air is a nostalgic looking padded sleeve for the MacBook Air 11″/13″.
Upon touching it, you will feel that the sleeve is constructed using premium materials. There is a thick padding within the sleeve to protect your MacBook Air from knocks. The sleeve will fit your MacBook Air exactly, leaving no extra space behind. And hence you will not be able to fit in a MacBook Air with a hardshell casing.
Targus Crave II Convertible 3-In-1 Backpack for MacBook Air/Pro 13″ (TSB772AP) is retailing for S$109. As the bag names implies, it allows you to carry it in three different ways, as a backpack, as a messenger bag or as a slipcase bag.
Speck SeeThru for MacBook Air is a hardshell casing for the MacBook Air 11″/13″.
It is thinner and lighter than the STM Grip for MacBook Air but lacks the inner linings of the suede to protect the casing from scratching the MacBook Air. The casing material is also extremely reflective as seen in the photos.
