It wasn’t so many years ago that I was schlepping a 15-inch MacBook Pro around a far-too-large college campus, but it seems like tech options for stylish students have exploded since my graduation in 2008. Honestly, I’m a little jealous – my black neoprene laptop sleeve is positively awful compared to all of the options college kids have now.

Now that high-end brands are hopping on the bandwagon at somewhat reasonable price points (my boring black sleeve cost about $60 with no fancy design whatsoever), we have a whole new category of bag to discuss: the luxe laptop case. Here are four of our favorites – larger pictures and price information are after the jump.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Pretty Nylon Lip-Print Laptop Case, $80 via Net-a-Porter.

Coach Poppy Laptop Sleeve, $78 via Coach.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Sketchy Miss Marc Laptop Case, $78 via Neiman Marcus.

Juicy Couture Laptop Sleeve, $73 via Nordstrom.

    You know, I keep debating whether or not I want to get a laptop sleeve, and you’ve actually shared three options that I’ve considered before. Personally, I think I’m leaning toward the Poppy case, because I like the bold, bright design, but I can’t decide!

    I thought that the laptop sleeve that I had was loud and obnoxious. I like to buy things that match my personality.
    My love of animal prints has me leaning towards the Coach Poppy. My humorous side loves the other three.

    I know. Like the movie White Chicks. Let’s. Go. Shopping!

    I actually like the Coach one the best as well. I love brightly colored animal print, and pink and purple definitely fit that bill.

    I love the MbyMJ lip one, and the Coach one, too bad I already have one from L.A.M.B.

    The Marc by Marc Jacobs Lip-Print is my favorite. I actually need a new laptop sleeve! ;-)
