Introducing UPPERCASE Apple MacBook Air Accessories
Accessories for both the 11″ & 13″ MacBook Air + 12″ Apple MacBook too
For you Apple MacBook users out there, I’ve got a question for you. How many of you are familiar with UPPERCASE? No, I don’t mean Upper Deck, the sports and fantasy trading card company, I mean UPPERCASE, the maker of Apple MacBook accessories. You see, I asked this question to three of my past and current writers, all of whom own Apple iPhones and MacBooks, and the response was “Who?” I got the same response at my local Apple Store. So, let me take a moment and introduce you to a niche player in the multi-billion-dollar Apple product accessories sector. Meet UPPERCASE, a niche provider of Apple MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iPad, and iPhone 6 accessories.
UPPERCASE for the Apple MacBook Air
If you’re like one of my current writers, and I won’t name which one, you could have made best use of an UPPERCASE product recently. You see, this writer broke his MacBook. If he had been using a sleeve or a protector on his MacBook, it probably wouldn’t have broke. Just like my writer, we often forget or ignore purchasing such accessories after investing in a MacBook.
UPPERCASE is in the business in making such protection. Their products are high-end, without the high-end price. UPPERCASE offers a variety of products for the Apple MacBook lineup: from the space-saving vertical stand called KRADL, to genuine leather sleeves, to keyboard, palm rest, and trackpad protectors. We’ve tried a few of these out and they’re all winners in our book.
Like what you’ve read so far? It just got better. In partnership with UPPERCASE, we’re running a giveaway now until 10 AM on September 2nd for one (1) of everything below minus the leather sleeve for an 11″ Apple MacBook Air.
Now UPPERCASE could have named their vertical stand for the MacBook “Cradle,” but why be ordinary. Play with the wording a little and you get KRADL, something you can brand. Outside of being a beautifully engineered aluminum product, the first thing you notice is the space you save on your desk. If you’re a college student, you know full well how little space you have in your dormitory or apartment. According to UPPERCASE, KRADL occupies 6X less desk space versus laying flat. And to protect your MacBook, the base of the KRADL is manufactured from rubber silicone. This prevents scratches and provides a snug fit.
Palm Rest and Trackpad Protection
I wonder what this product does.
How many of you wear bracelets, watches, or jewelry while you type? Most of you, right? Have you noticed the scratches caused by these three items on your MacBook Air? You could remove the items, thus preventing scratches, or you could invest the equivalent of a trip to Shake Shack and get yourself an UPPERCASE Palm Rest Protector with Trackpad Protector. This reusable product made of a silver-colored plastic film matches and blends into the look and texture of your MacBook Air. Now you’ve got a way to prevent the scratches from occurring without having to remove anything.[envira-gallery id=”5774″]
Complementing the palm rest and trackpad protectors is the UPPERCASE Ultra Thin (0.18mm) Keyboard Protector. This transparent, thermoplastic polyurethane protector costs less than the previous item and fits perfectly over your MacBook Air keyboard. Now you don’t have to worry as much when you knock over that Starbucks latté. And after that spill, you can wash off and reuse the keyboard protector. Just don’t use soap when cleaning or you could discolor or damage the item.
Some protection for your Apple MacBook Air is a must, but how you achieve this is up to you. UPPERCASE offers a premium full-grain leather sleeve with microfiber lining to envelop your MacBook or MacBook Air. Having seen this product first-hand, I can tell you that it’s quite attractive. Note, we did not review the leather sleeve.
The UPPERCASE leather sleeve is available in 3 colors (Black, Brown, and Red) with sizes available for the 11″ & 13″ MacBook Air and 12″ Retina MacBook. Pricing varies between $49.99-$59.99, depending on whether a promotion is in effect.[envira-gallery id=”5778″]
