If you just bought a new MacBook Pro then you need a MacBook Pro Case (assuming you have already handled your first order of business: buying the 3-in-1 USB Type-C adapter).

What I like about this particular case from Mosiso is that it comes in fifteen different colors! My personal favorite is the Royal Blue, but I also think the Black, Gray, White and Frost are pretty cool too. Luckily there are so many colors to choose from you can easily pick one that suits your own personality.
Other things you should know are that this case is vented which means it won’t cause your MacBook Pro to run hotter than it should, it doesn’t cover any buttons or otherwise get in your way, it’s easy to install (snaps on and off) and it even comes with a free ...
