I have purchased a new 13" macbook air and need advice on cases. I am looking for a hardshell case, (preferably a clear one) that is a nice quality.
The problem I am having is that the apple store and even best buy are assuring me that the previous cases for the MacBook Air will work on the new version because all of the dimensions are the same. They have stated that they do not forsee a lot of new cases coming out for that exact reason. I do not see how this can be correct however, as the new MacBook Air has two microphones vs the single one from the previous versions. I even purchased a speck case (not the best quality) and it covered one of the two microphones. When I pointed this out to the apple store they state it should not affect the performance of the machine.
1) Could they be correct that covering one of the mics would not affect performance?
2) Do you know if the heat venting on the machine changed or if the venting is in the same position?
3) Does anyone have any input on if they have seen a new case come out or have a suggestion on cases?
4) If I was to buy a case that was not a hardshell that had the air sit on a "soft interior" does that affect the heat dispersion?
Thanks in advance for any advice and assistance.
