Notebook sleeves seem to be one of the hottest accessories today and with good reason. Protecting your laptop investment is a good idea.

Altego’s clear laptop sleeve is probably one of the best sleeves I’ve seen for protection out there today, and one of the ugliest. Literally, the Altego sleeve wraps your Macbook in bubble wrap. No, you can’t pop this bubble wrap, but nonetheless this sleeve is made up of air chambers that cushion the contents and protect it from mishap. While Altego dresses up this bubble wrap with fashionable colored accents, it still looks like bubble wrap!

Like many of the laptop sleeves today, under current TSA rules, you are allowed to travel with the laptop inside one of these sleeves and are not required to remove your laptop from its protection when passing through security. Given how rough travel is today, I’ll probably use this during travel to get that extra ounce of protection.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. While I think the exterior is ugly, the protection this sleeve provides is beautiful.

PROS: World class protection with a cushion of air
CONS: Looks like bubble wrap, demands to be popped
