Apple adds Leather Sleeve for new 13- & 15-inch MacBook Pros
Not content with new MacBook Pros and an external GPU, Apple on Thursday also launched new Leather Sleeves, sized for 13- and 15-inch Pros.
Both versions are meant to slip in a MacBook vertically, and come in Midnight Blue, Saddle Brown, or Black. Apple has produced leather MacBook sleeves before, but only for 12-inch MacBooks.
The 13-inch Pro Leather Sleeve costs $179, and should ship starting next week. The 15-inch Sleeve has been announced but isn't yet on Apple's website.
The new MacBook Pro line supports configurations with six-core processors and up to 32 gigabytes of RAM. Apple also promises a quieter keyboard, and on some models a True Tone display that matches ambient light color.
New 13-inch Pros start at $1,799 for a 2.3GHz quad-core i5 model with 8 gigabytes of RAM and 256 gigabytes of storage. 13-inch systems start at $2,399 for a 2.8-gigahertz quad-core i7 with 256 gigabytes of storage and a Radeon Pro 555X GPU.
