One of our most popular blog posts - Moleskine Laptop Cases – What Fits - deals with matching the right-sized Moleskine Laptop Case with your preferred laptop, tablet, or other electronic device.
However, the majority of people searching to connect the two are Apple users. It makes sense – both communities are packed with creatives and professionals, the products are sleek and iconic, and once you start using an Apple or Moleskine product, you tend to pick them all up. Therefore, this post is dedicated to (most) every Apple product in tablet or laptop form and the correct corresponding Moleskine Laptop Case.
What fits in a 10-inch Moleskine Laptop Case:
Moleskine 10-inch Laptop Case dimensions: 10.25 (H) x 7.75 (W) x 1.25 (D) inches
- First generation iPad
- 9.56 inches (H) x 7.47 (W) x 0.5 (D) inches
- Second and third generation iPad
- 9.50 inches (H) x 7.31 (W) x 0.35 (D) inches
What fits in a 13-inch Moleskine Laptop Case:
Moleskine 13-inch Laptop Case dimensions: 13.0 (H) x 9.0 (W) x 1.25 (D) inches
- Original polycarbonate MacBook released in 2006
- 12.78 (H) x 8.92 (W) x 1.08 (D) inches
- Aluminum MacBook released in 2008
- 12.78 (H) x 8.94 (W) x 0.94 (D) inches
- MacBook Air 11″
- 11.8 (H) x 7.56 (W) x 0.68 (D) inches
What fits in a 15-inch Moleskine Laptop Case:
Moleskine 15-inch Laptop Case dimensions: 14.5 (H) x 10.5 (W) x 1.57 (D) inches
- Polycarbonate MacBook released in late 2009
- 13.00 (H) x 9.12 (W) x 1.09 (D) inches
- Same as the MacBook Air, this model is a bit of a tight squeeze in the 13-inch Moleskine Laptop Case, but perfect with the 15-inch.
- MacBook Air 13″
- 12.8 (H) x 8.94 (W) x 0.68 (D) inches
- Technically the MacBook Air 13-inch model should pair with the Moleskine 13-inch Laptop Case, but we’ve found it to be a tight fit. Plus, if you want to put a journal, notepad, or pretty much anything else in with it, you’ve got to have a little wiggle room. Thus the MacBook Air 13″ is paired with Moleskine’s 15-inch Laptop Case instead.
- MacBook Pro with Retina Display (third gen of the MacBook Pro)
- 14.13 (H) x 9.73 (W) x 0.71 (D) inches

Moleskine‘s ubiquitous little black notebook. You see them in coffee shops, nestled into purses and totes, and at the office and others’ homes. But what is it about Moleskine that galvanizes creatives and professionals across the world to identify with these black notebooks? We think the answer’s clear: Moleskine is synonymous with community.
Whether it connects you back to reality or piques your imagination, Moleskine is a source for inspiration. And the inspiration doesn’t just come from the blank pages and classic black covers of the notebooks themselves, it also manifests in the reality that hundreds, even thousands, of others are using their Moleskine notebook at the same time as you. It’s that underlying current of creative energy we believe makes Moleskine so appealing.
The Legend Explained
The nameless little black notebook so many legendary artists and thinkers have used over the past two centuries was originally made by a French bookbinder whose name was lost to obscurity. The notebook was even spotted among such greats as Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Ernest Hemingway, and the man who ultimately coined the name ‘Moleskine’, Bruce Chatwin.
The original notebook faded over time and was last seen in the 1980′s, but was ultimately picked up by a small Milanese publisher named Modo&Modo and the brand name Moleskine was officially trademarked in 1997. A little less than a decade later, the trademark was acquired by an Italian company that took on the name for itself. Moleskine SRL now has the sole objective of bringing back to life the notebook that captured that minimalist style and quality that literally has centuries of experience. As they say, “To the initiated, there is no substitute.”
In 2008, Moleskine went through the laborious process of obtaining an FSC certification for all their paper. “FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.” Many of the brands on EuropeanPaper.com have either a PEFC or FSC certification for their sustainable paper, but most people don’t realize the amount of work involved to become certified.
On the foundation front, Moleskine primarily supports lettera27, a non-profit working toward a universal right to education and access to knowledge around the world. However, Moleskine also does a phenomenal job supporting young creatives via myriad organizations.
Where they are really seen supporting the creative community is through MyMoleskine, a hub for Moleskine fans around the world to share their art, hacks, and general passion for the brand. Several projects such as the Cover Art series have risen from this meeting place to showcase artists’ work on Moleskine notebooks – a platform previously thought unattainable by the general creative public.
Beginning with the tried and trusted classic design, Moleskine’s Classic Hard Cover Journals are known for their quintessential features: sewn binding, acid-free paper, rounded edges, elastic closure, cloth ribbon placeholder, and a rear expandable inner pocket.
Moleskine’s Volant and Cahier series are also staples in the Moleskine arsenal, the first being perfect bound with bright covers and the latter side-stitched with craft covers. Moleskine has also taken a creative page out of their fans’ notebook and and expanded with their ever-increasing Limited Edition selection, through collaborations with LEGO, Star Wars, Le Petit Prince, Pac-Man, and their published book series “The Hand of …” They’ve even developed hobby-specific notebooks known as the Moleskine Passions Journals.
It’s hard to encapsulate all of Moleskine in the proverbial nutshell as they’ve also expanded their offerings with their fairly recent New Collections. The Moleskine New Collections are sets of striking pieces that focus on writing, travelling, and reading. Perfectly compatible with the legendary notebooks, they were designed by Giulio Iacchetti to incorporate signature Moleskine function and aesthetics: the elastic band, the rounded corners, the black color, the simple design. The offerings include bags, pencils, pens, computer cases, reading glasses, a rechargeable reading light and an e-reader stand.
Moleskine ultimately corresponds with travel, culture, imagination, and identity. Moleskine connects with individuals because it is a symbol of modern-day nomadism, a romantic notion turned into reality each day through every far-reaching fan. And we’ll admit, we’re all Moleskine fans.
Be inspired to write, journal, and doodle with Moleskine’s Writing Collection. With the focus on daily inspiration, writing, and travelling, each piece is the perfect complement to Moleskine’s legendary notebooks. Designed by Giulio Iacchetti to incorporate signature Moleskine function and aesthetics, the Writing Collection is part of the greater New Collections by Moleskine. The myriad, distinctive accessories enhance the activities of the modern-day nomad in each of us. Below are the latest additions to the Writing Collection – what is your favorite?

Many Moleskine and LEGO fans let out a sigh of relief and muttered online “Finally!” when the new Moleskine LEGO Limited Edition Notebook series came out. But why are they saying that now? Moleskine has collaborated with the likes of Star Wars, Pac-Man, Le Petit Prince, among others. Surely LEGO fits in with those grandmasters? Well, they do, but they also stand apart slightly. LEGO inextricably aligns with Moleskine’s well-known mantra of the customer’s constantly evolving creative personal identity (while the others mentioned already have their stories established). It really is a match made in heaven to have Moleskine and LEGO – two incredibly creative brands with strong histories – come together in this new series of notebooks where you can “Think With Your Hands.”
And did you know? LEGO is a contraction of the Danish words “leg” and “godt,” which means “play well” in Danish. Coincidentally, the word LEGO in Latin loosely translates to “I study” and “I put together.” LEGO began with humble beginnings in 1916 in Denmark in the workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen. After a fire consumed the workshop in 1924, Christiansen rebuilt and began constructing wooden toys in 1932, only moving to plastic in 1947 after purchasing a plastic injection molding machine.
LEGO’s plastic bricks really took hold in the 1960′s and soon LEGO was experiencing exponential growth in multiple markets. Today, LEGO produces a massive amount of blocks, as evidenced in this neat fact: “Every year, about 19 billion LEGO bricks are produced. That translates to 2.16 million LEGO elements are molded every hour, or 36,000 per minute! The LEGO manufacturing process is so precise that only 18 out of 1 million LEGO bricks produced is considered defective.” (10 Neatest LEGO Facts.)
LEGO has continued to evolve over time, and still has a strong hold on the toy market today. Combined with the strong evocations of Moleskine notebooks, this is an instant classic not to be missed. Like the Moleskine Classic Journals, Moleskine LEGO Notebooks have a sewn binding, acid-free paper, rounded edges, elastic closure, cloth ribbon placeholder, and a rear expandable inner pocket. All the Moleskine features you’ve come to know and love, bound together with the excitement of LEGO.
