Recommended cases for MacBook Air M2 (2022)

As mentioned earlier, the recent launch of the MacBook Air M2 (2022) makes it difficult for users to find a wide variety of options, but buying a simple hard shell is easy.

Coming to the sleeves, as mentioned in our MOFT Urban Commuter Set review, the Laptop Carry Sleeve is one of the best accessories to have around for your laptop.
