Moshi has been making Mac accessories and in fact Apple product accessories for quite a while. When I hear the work Moshi, I automatically associate it with Apple. Anyways, this Moshi iGlaze Hard Cas for 13″ MacBook Pro is crafted extremely well. You can get this Moshi case in 2 colors but the one pictured above is the one that I personally love.
You can get this Moshi iGlaze Hard case for your MacBook in 2 configurations both for the Touch bar and the Non-TouchBar variant of the MacBook Pro. This case doesn’t come in cheap, however. One of these will set you back $40. You can also get this laptop case in various other color options. But I think this is what looks the best out of the available 3 color options.

This is another awesome case by Moshi! It comes in dark Stealth color. If you happen to have the new 13 inch MacBook Pro in Space Grey color, this case is going to look really well on your laptop.

9) Premium Keyboard Cover for MacBook Pro with Touch Bar 13″
While this isn’t an accessory that I 100% recommend putting on, if you are one of those who had good experiences with these, you might as well try this one out. Last time I tied one of these, I couldn’t keep them in the same for even a week.
In fact, I threw it away in less than a week after my purchase. However, if you want your laptop keyboard to look pristine for years, this keyboard protector is the way to go. Also, if you have pets like cats and dogs, it might be a good idea to put these on. Also, this keyboard protector with protect the keyboard of your MacBook in case you spill something on it.
10) Lention Clear Screen Protector for MacBook Pro
This is the screen protector I put in my retina MacBook Pro just as soon as I got my computer. Reason? Well, last time I sold my MacBook Pro 15 with Retina Display, it was evaluated so low thanks to the horribly looking screen. I don’t want to repeat the same mistake this time and hence this screen protector. The screen protector mentioned here clearly isn’t a case but I mentioned it in this article 10 Best MacBook Pro 13 Transparent Cases because I really think that $10 is a good investment especially when you consider the fact that replacing the screen itself will cost you whopping $600.
If you really want to keep your laptop in a pristine condition, this Lention screen protector for the MacBook Pro 13 is the way to go. And the best part about it has to be the fact that, you can score one of these for under $10 as of now.
From the 15 MacBook Pro 13 Transparent Cases, we found these 8 were the best. Also, we hope you found the two additional accessories for the MacBook 13 useful. MacBooks are one of the very few laptops which have over 100s of accessories available in the market. Most of the laptops come and go followed by a new version. It’s not the case with MacBooks. MacBooks generally last years over year making them a really good purchase.
Does MacBook Pro Screen get easily scratched?
To be honest, it doesn’t! Unlike smartphones, the display of the MacBook is protected as it’s almost always closed when not used. Also, the newer MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 and TouchBar don’t suffer from the Stain Gate that the older Retina MacBook Pros did. If you are really careful about how you use your MacBook, you may not need a screen protector at all!
But if you are someone, who has got messy hands and have stains on your laptop screen all the time, it’s a good idea to install a screen protector to it. It doesn’t affect the display performance of the new MacBook Pro in anyway whatsoever. From my experience, what I have found is, if you have a dirty keyboard and a dirty display of dust in them the screen Does get scratched. Clean your laptop with a microfiber cleaning cloth and you are good to go.
Do you really need a hard case for your MacBook Pro with TouchBar/ without TouchBar?
The answer is both yes and a no. If you use a cover or a sleeve for your MacBook Pro, chances are you are fine without a hard case. But if you happen to carry around your MacBook without any cover or a sleeve, a hard case is my recommendation. Also, if you are someone who has a past of dropping your laptop from the table or if you have a child who is likely to drop your laptop, I would advise you to get one of the 8 Best MacBook Pro 13 Transparent Cases.
