When Chromebooks were first released, there weren’t many cases to choose from, leaving users with scratched devices. Luckily this changed quickly, and today, there are so many Chromebook case options that it’s hard to choose from them.
But Why Purchase a Case at All?
The snug fit of a specifically tailored case ensures your Chromebook doesn’t bounce around, as it usually does in your backpack or a larger case. This adds a layer of protection when you put your Chromebook into your bag to separate from the rest of your things and avoid scratching or damage. Plus, cases look more professional if you’re using it for work and offer care that will extend their life.
Here are some of the highest-rated Chromebook cases you can find:
ProCase 11″ to 12.5″ Water-Resistant Shoulder Bags
ProCase’s shoulder bags were designed to be lightweight, portable, and slim. You can get them in various sizes to suit your Chromebook, from 11 inches to 15.6 inches. It comes with a removable shoulder strap and the bag has additional front and back compartments that easily fit all your accessories. The exterior is a waterproof canvas, which is also resistant to dirt, debris, and scratching.
amCase 11.6″ to 12″ Neoprene Chromebook Case
The amCase Neoprene Chromebook Case falls somewhere between a case and sleeve, offering the best of both worlds. The comfortable handle makes it easy to carry on its own, and it also fits into your bag easily. All around protection is provided, thanks to a scratch-resistant seamless foam padding wrap with a bubble-wrap–like texture that snuggly wraps around your Chromebook. You’ll also find additional storage in the front where you can put your accessories.
iPearl mCover 11.6″ Hard Shell Chromebook Case
The iPearl mCover Hard Shell Chromebook Case was designed to fit the 11.6-inch HP Chromebook X360 11 G1 EE series (2018) perfectly, and you can choose from a myriad of colors. The hard-shell case is made of high-quality translucent polycarbonate, which makes it shatter-resistant and protects the corners. This is perfect for users who are constantly on the go and have that extra risk. It also has retractable feet at the bottom rear side of the case for a more ergonomic typing experience and better cooling. mCover also offers hard shell cases for other Chromebook models, so make sure to check them out.
Case Logic Arca 11.6″ Chromebook Carrying Case
The Case Logic Arca 11.6-inch Chromebook Carrying Cases are sturdy and protect your Chromebook from even the toughest hits, thanks to a hard EVA exterior and thick inner padding. Its inner straps also allow you to use your Chromebook easily inside the case, which is excellent for those with a lack of space. You don’t have to worry about overheating, as the lower side of the case features a mesh design, enabling breathability. One downside is that there is no additional storage space with this case so will probably only suit users who don’t have many accessories.
Tomtoc 360° Protective Chromebook Case
The Tomtoc 360° Protective Case doubles as a sleeve and armor case for your Chromebook. The patented CornerArmor™ at the bottom ensures your Chromebook survives even the hardest of falls for the heavy user or traveler. It comes in a variety of sizes and fits the 11.6-inch HP, ASUS, Samsung, and Acer Chromebook models and 14-inch Acer and HP Chromebook models. With a very thick inner lining, it offers superior protection. You will find plenty of space for all accessories thanks to two sealed outer pockets that easily fit chargers, power banks, and cables.
Before you purchase a case, think about the primary reason why you are buying one. Do you need it because you travel a lot, or because you’re a bit clumsy and more likely to drop it? Are you looking for superior protection or do you need a case that will allow you to hold all of your accessories too? Once you answer those questions, you’ll be able to find the right one.
