Use while operating?

Can the sleeve be used while the computer is operating? I will have it connected to external display, keyboard, and trackpad. I don't doubt it's physically possible, what I need to know is can whether the material can withstand and also dissipate the heat without deforming.

    for your usage, this can be used, since you will just connect cables for external use. the sleeve will fit around the MacBook and the material can withstand the heat the MacBook produces. however, you cannot use the sleeve while you use the built in interaction methods (built in trackpad, built in keyboard, etc)

  • I would not use the case while it is operating. My MacBook can get quite warm during use, and it's not a matter of whether the case can withstand the heat-it's what the excessive heat is doing to your computer. Batteries are especially sensitive to excessive heat. The MacBook uses the aluminum case to dissipate heat to the environment, and keeping it in the case while operating traps that heat. How much is too much? Who knows, but with a computer so expensive I don't want to find out.
