Looking for an extra layer of luxury for your MacBook Pro? Love full-grain leather? Sena’s Burnished Portfolio may be the product for you! Available for both the 13 and 15 inch MacBook Pro Retina laptops, the Burnished Portfolio is crafted from full grain, vegetable tanned leather that is buttery smooth and lovely to touch. Designed to darken over time with use, the leather will develop a beautiful patina that is all its own.
The Burnished Portfolio is lined with a herringbone pattern microfiber and features card slots as well as a place to slide extra papers or a slim pad of paper. Additionally, it has a magnetic closure tab which can be attached magnetically to the top of the cover when not in use. Installation and removal are very easy and the soft, smooth leather of the Burnished Portfolio makes your laptop a pleasure to hold.
- Lovely leather quality: full grain, vegetable tanned leather is thick and looks like it should wear well, although it should be noted that it is designed to develop a patina with use and will show small marks and scratches over time.
- Comfortable wrist rest: the triangular leather corners that slip over the bottom of the laptop, underneath the keyboard and on either side of the trackpad, are soft and smooth and feel very nice underneath your wrists while typing.
- Classy, sophisticated appearance: this leather laptop cover has an executive appearance and is perfect for a business setting.
- Adds some weight and thickness to your MacBook Pro.
- Relatively expensive.
Conclusion: Overall, I was very impressed with the Sena Burnished Portfolio. Its price point may put it out of reach for some people, but for those MacBook Pro owners looking for a high quality leather cover with an executive flair, the Sena Burnished Portfolio may be perfect. Available for both the 13 and 15 inch MacBook Pro Retina, the Burnished Portfolio comes in Tan, Brown and Black and retails for $149.95. Many thanks to Sena for sending me out this sample to review.
