Here at Pocketnow, we often cover and show you the best Macbook Pro cases. We also often show you the best accessories and have also already shown you the best docking stations. In today’s post, we’re going to focus on hardshell cases for the Macbook Pro series.

We’ve focused on the 2016 and newer models, but the year is indicated everywhere in the title, so it’s a little easier to pick and select your favorites. The list includes a number of different cases — some are minimalist, some have a textured outer shell and some are also available in a number of colors. Most of them offer great overall protection, but some go way beyond to ensure the device is fully protected and covered in the event you accidentally drop it.
