No one likes hiding an awesome looking piece of technology behind a case, but you do want to keep it looking good, especially when you spent a lot of your own hard-earned money on it. In the case of the HP Spectre x360 13-inch, there's a simple way to look after the PC when you need to move it around: throw it into a sleeve.
If you're looking for some suggestions, pick up one of these sleeves to keep your laptop safe.
HP Premium Leather Sleeve
Why you can trust Windows Central
While it's one of the pricier options you'll find, this official sleeve from HP is also one of the most stylish options for your Spectre x360.
On the outside, it's genuine leather, and on the inside it's super-soft suede that won't scuff up your laptop. The sleeve closes securely with magnets, so you can chuck it into a bag with the confidence that it's not going to spill out while you're on the move.
Caison 13 - 13.3 inch laptop sleeve
If you're looking for something that's not flashy, but is affordable and still offers enough protection for your expensive laptop, this sleeve from Caison might be just the ticket.
It's water resistant, available in three colors and has an external pocket that's big enough to carry your phone. And that faux fur interior is so soft it'll be like your laptop is staying in a luxury hotel room.
Jlyifan faux-leather briefcase stand carrying sleeve
If you like the leather look but not the increased price, how about a faux leather sleeve? This option also has the added bonus of becoming a stand to prop your laptop up at a more comfortable angle for typing on.
The lining is soft enough to keep nasty scratches at bay, and it claims to also protect against bumps and shocks. At $19, it's a much lesser expense than the HP sleeve featured above while still offering some of the style. It's also available in brown.
Acme Made Skinny Sleeve
The name might make you think of cartoons, but there's nothing funny about this thin sleeve from Acme Made. Thanks to the company's own StretchShell, based on neoprene, what you have is an extremely minimal skin that's still protective and durable.
There are no zippers, the sides have built in reinforcement and your laptop is kept safe and sound by an elastic strap. This sleeve won't add any additional bulk inside your bag, and it's there waiting for quick and easy access when you need your Spectre.
VanGoddy jam bubble padded striped carrying sleeve
This sleeve from VanGoddy is like a "sleeve+," with large pockets on the front and rear that are capable of carrying your other portables, as well as your laptop. Throw in a phone, a tablet, external drive, and there's room for it all.
It's durable, right down to the stitching, and the shock absorbing bubble padded interior will take very good care of your expensive laptop. The main pockets are all zipped, so you can close them up and not worry about what's inside.
