Last year we provided you guys with a little sneak preview of a carbon fiber laptop case we were working on with Mach 3 Composites. Well the time has finally come. After more than a year of development and testing, and two months late of its expected release date…we officially have the new carbon fiber laptop cases. Before I even begin to break it down for you, just take a look at this artful masterpiece of carbon fiber…

Now, let’s get down to business. First and foremost, these cases are 100% carbon fiber, with a high-gloss clear-coated finish. Being that they are made out of carbon fiber, it makes them very lightweight, but also extremely strong and durable…which can come in handy while lugging your laptop around.  The case is currently available in four different sizes (an iPad-specific sized case is in the works) in order to make sure it fits most types of laptops and netbooks.  It doesn’t matter if you have a MacBook, Dell, Alienware, Lenovo, ThinkPad, Sony Vaio, as long as you check its dimensions against the internal dimensions of our case, it will fit….just make sure and check the internal dimensions on our product page.  Just for some assurance for you Mac folks, MacBook cases should all fit with no problems!  In fact, you don’t even need to put a laptop in there, use the case for documents, or whatever else you want to carry around.  If you’re like us, we would carry the case around empty if we had to, just so we can show off all that carbon fiber.

Developed by a pilot, the carbon fiber laptop case has been tested all over the world through airports and real world scenarios.  Being that it was developed by a pilot, you’ll understand that they are completely checkpoint friendly, and meet all TSA guidelines.

Aside from the outside of the case being completely carbon fiber, it also has matching black hardware, including spring loaded clips on the front.  The outside of the case isn’t the only good looking aspect, the interior is almost as impressive.  The interior is completely padded in a diamond pattern stitched soft material…in fact, it’s the same material that is used inside the cases of some of the worlds finest musical instruments.  You can be assured that if it’s good enough for a $10,000 violin, your $2,000 MacBook is well protected.

On top of everything, in case you want to protect the carbon fiber that is protecting your laptop, it comes in a black velvet-like bag with embroidered logo.  We of course recommend showing off your carbon fiber.

One of the best parts about this case is the price.  You may have seen carbon fiber briefcases that sell for thousands of dollars.  We’ve very reasonably priced these under $300.  In fact, they start at just $251.90.  On top of that, we’re running introductory pricing, and offering all of the cases for $100 off. The price goes up slightly depending on the size of the case your purchase, here is the breakdown based on today’s introductory prices:

  • 12″ Case: $151.90
  • 13″ Case: $182.90
  • 15″ Case: $195.90
  • 17″ Case: $199.90

If you are a carbon fiber enthusiast, this will probably be one of the single coolest things you can carry around with you, and it’s very reasonably priced considering the amount of carbon fiber used on each case.  We’ve created a video which overview the cases and shows how it works, I recommend taking a look:

Especially at first, these are available in a very limited supply, but we hope to ramp up production as demand gets higher.  If you’re interested in learning more, or picking one up for yourself, head on over to the product page on our store.

    Looks awesome, and the price is even ok, but the utility is lost for me unless there is room to include related components and accessories. I almost never carry just the laptop. I usually have my cell, iPad, iPod Touch, power cables, USB cables, etc. If there’s room for that, I’m in! But currently it looks pretty form fitting for just the laptop.

    • Mikael,

      Understood. It’s not really meant to be a replacement for a laptop bag, but more like a laptop sleeve. This is something you would throw in your bag or your suitcase for example.

      That being said, it’s not for everybody! 🙂

      • Mikael R.

        It just seems kind of silly to put a case within a case. Why would I get this for my laptop when I could just get your CF MacBook cover? Which makes more sense to slide into another bag with the machine. I understand where you are coming from, I travel quite a bit. That being said, I’m excited to see a CF cover and/or case come out for my iPad soon!

        • Mikael,

          The MacBook “cover” is not made out of real carbon fiber. That’s pretty much the main difference. If you take a look at the video, you’ll see mention of the InCase sleeve which many people get…it’s more about an alternative to something like that.

        • Mikael R.

          Understood. Saw this at work so I wasn’t able to watch the video until now.

  • Mikael, The true purpose of our case was to provide extensive crush protection. I travel a lot and like to carry my laptop in a backpack. The case will really give you the confidence that no matter what you like to use, your laptop will be much more protected then in a sleeve or bag. Plus with a weight of about 1.3 LBS you do not even notice. Many people bring up the same great points you have and I always ask this question. Are you ever worried about breaking your power chord?A quick side note, I often put my IPOD in my case with my laptop. Cheers and thanks for your input.

  • Our second generation cases are in production to include some great improvements to enhance the strength and looks even more. We expect to have CFG resupplied with our next generation cases to include the IPAD case in early July. Thanks for your interest in Mach 3 Composites.

    I can’t wait for both the new laptop cases and the iPad case. I’ll try to pick up both if I can, but I’ll definitley be buying a laptop case.

  • George

    I also travel a lot and it’s seems that I will wait for a CF laptop case with an attached/included space for the power supply brick and some other devices that must go with the Alienware M17x-R2.

  • simon

    Have you seen the weave problems on the corners? Poor design poor selection of fibre weave and weave orientation. Good luck with it but I would rather spend more in order to have a better quality peace.

  • Greg

    Do you have any photo’s of the case with a 15″ macbook pro in?

    • I don’t at this time, but it’s not as PERFECT of a fit as the 13″ You can always compare the measurements with our internal measurements to get an idea of how much space is left.

  • Tammu Elliott

    Are you going to make a CF snap on case for the 17 inch Macbook Pro Unibody?

    • At this time there are no plans.

  • chamcham123

    This sorely needs a briefcase handle. Maybe something magnetic or detachable might be nice.

  • Kalman Kovacs

    hi guys, can anyone tell me who is the manufacturer of the laptop case?
