In the Bag
It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to spend $100 on a protective bag for a Chromebook that costs all of $200 or $250 and Belkin doesn’t expect you to with its $59 Air Protect Case. Designed with 11.6-inch Chromebooks in mind, the bag has straps to hold the system in place so that when the case is unzipped and opened, kids and teachers can work with the keyboard and screen without removing the system. There’s a front pocket for papers, all the ports are available and the case has rigid plastic inserts to protect the notebook from damage. Belkin also sells a smaller and lighter $29 sleeve with a handle.
