MacBook-owning Lego fans, your laptop case is on its way

Brik Case
If you’re a MacBook owner with a love of all things Lego, Brik Case may well be the laptop cover you never knew you desperately wanted.

Claiming to be the world’s most customizable laptop case, the simple clip-on brick plate lets you get creative during breaks from your computer-based exploits, while at the same time cleverly protecting the top of your machine from scuffs and scratches.

The innovative Kickstarter project from San Francisco-based Jolt Team recently hit its $30,000 funding goal, meaning the accessory could start shipping around the world as early as August.

The team says most of the money will be used to finance the molds used to build Brik Case.

“We’ll need several molds for different MacBook sizes,” Jolt Team explains on its Kickstarter page. “Molds are expensive ($10,000+). Raising money on Kickstarter will help pay for the molds, packaging, engineers, and the first order of Brik Cases.”

Compatible with Lego bricks, Mega Bloks, PixelBlocks, Kre-o bricks, and K’nex bricks, Brik Case offers MacBook owners a refreshing alternative to messy stickers when it comes to jazzing up your computer, although if the kids catch sight of it, your laptop sessions may never be the same again (ie. they’ll be full of endless interruptions).

Pledge $30 and you’ll snag yourself a Brik Case together with 100 1×1 bricks, allowing you to press out your first snappy design right out of the box.

Brik Case will be compatible with MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs manufactured in or after 2013, and will ship for around $40.

Why you should buy a MacBook Air instead of a MacBook Pro
The MacBook Air on a table in front of a window.

The MacBook Air has officially caught up. Now with the M3 on board, the MacBook Air has gained the benefits of the new chip, which was previously available just on the MacBook Pro and iMac.

Choosing between the M3 15-inch MacBook Air and the 14-inch MacBook Pro is tough, and requires an in-depth look at differences in ports, displays, speakers, and more. It's a legitimately hard decision to make.

The MacBook Air 15 vs. MacBook Pro 14: the easy way to decide
Apple's 15-inch MacBook Air placed on a desk with its lid closed.

Picking out a new MacBook isn't as easy as it used to be.

The hardest choice in the lineup might be between the 15-inch MacBook Air and the 14-inch MacBook Pro. Both are now offered with the same M3 chip, despite there being a $300 difference in the base models. But when similarly configured, there's actually only a $100 difference between these two laptops.

I needed to buy a new MacBook. Here’s why I bought a power bank instead
Baseus Blade 2 65W power bank for laptops kept on a green couch.

I rely on a 13-inch MacBook Pro from 2020 for most of my work. Despite its age and being a base variant model, it continues to stack up well against my expectations for all these years.

Since MacBooks are known for longevity, the fact that my MacBook Pro still holds up well a few years later shouldn't sound surprising. However, the first signs of aging recently arrived in the form of a warning about the battery's plummeting health. I was already dreading the idea of having to replace what was otherwise a perfectly good laptop.
