Here’s a product that makes sense. This corduroy sleeve from Wrappers not only protects your laptop from injury, it protects you from being injured by your laptop. The sleeve, you see, is fire retardant, which sadly isn’t the same thing as fire proof, but it’s a start. So if your laptop decides to burst into flames while bouncing along in your backpack, it just might prevent you from erupting into a fiery inferno along with it.
These sleeves are billed for MacBook, but they’d probably fit some other models as well. It’s available now for about $30.
