The Good You can create an almost infinite variety of designs with the Caseable 13-inch MacBook laptop sleeve, all for one price.

The Bad Art aside, this is a pretty feature-free foam sleeve.

The Bottom Line Caseable laptop and gadget sleeves are blank canvases for creative minds, letting you tweak patterns and colors, or even upload your own images.

Editors' Top Picks

The idea behind the Caseable 13-inch laptop sleeve (and the company's iPad and Kindle cases) is one of style over substance, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. For $69.90 for the 13-inch laptop version, you get to customize your purchase with a nearly infinite number of color and pattern variations, all controlled by a simple online editing tool on the Caseable Web site.

After picking the colors for the front, back, side, and zipper, you can add one of 14 overlay patterns, and adjust the size of the pattern or even apply different (or multiple) patterns to the front and back panels. Custom text and images, including photos and artwork, can also be uploaded and applied to the sleeve. The online tool even has bleed and safe lines, concepts that will be familiar to anyone who has worked in graphic design.
