80 Creative Ways to Customize Your MacBook

Wdd Logo.
June 12, 2009

The MacBook and MacBook Pro are stunning examples of minimalist design.

Their sleek lines, simple shapes, and uncomplicated designs are pinnacles of modern beauty. But let’s face it: they pretty much all look the same.

Whether you have a basic 13″ MacBook, a MacBook Pro, or a MacBook Air, they’re all silver, they’ve all got a very similar shape (even though the Air is significantly thinner than its counterparts), and while they’re never boring, they can sometimes be a bit blah.”

The beauty of the MacBooks though, is that they make the perfect blank canvas for customization. Whether you want to just carry it around in a spiffy sleeve or bag, or commit a bit more with a skin or sleeve, there’s something out there available no matter what your taste or personality.

Below you’ll find 80 different skins, sleeves, decals and cases to customize your MacBook and make it reflect who you are. Most of the companies featured have additional products available on their websites.
